Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

A watch connected for health

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Forerunner 35 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

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.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Interesting for everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the Forerunner 35 could do for you.
Garmin has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
This model comes standard with 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.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what Forerunner 35 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

In short, The Forerunner 35, the right choice?
