You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the Bleu is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
Interesting for everyday life?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the Bleu test shows.
Bauisan has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the Bleu is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The watch works with 3G technology.You will thus be able to receive your notifications directly on the watch.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Finally, The Bleu…
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
