As an introduction to this analysis
Connected watches have become powerful. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Few 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 C30-EU, the right one for healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the C30-EU 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 operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this C30-EU is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the C30-EU could do for you.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
The manufacturer provides 15 days of autonomy.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.Some users will never use it.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the C30-EU detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The right model to install 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.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Finally, The C30-EU…
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
