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 may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Lige’s BW0160F offers its latest high-end model.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Lige decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this BW0160F.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the BW0160F test shows.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 120 mAh could have been better.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The function is not available here.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.And as far as the BW0160F is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It is a watch with a very low autonomy, because of its 120 mAh battery.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The watch and possible applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Its 1.4-inch screen size will also make it easy for you to read the information.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 120 mAh of power.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The BW0160F…
