The watch that tells you about your health?
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The P22B corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Judneer decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This P22B gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Is this watch useful in everyday life?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the P22B test shows.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
The battery has a power of 180 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 30 hours.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
Judneer opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
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 smartwatch designed for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the P22B is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
One of the weak points of this smartwatch is its autonomy; it is one of the lowest at 180 mAh.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
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.
Another advantage of Judneer watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The right choice for downloading applications?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.4 inches.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 180 mAh of power.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
Finally, The P22B…
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here are a few highlights to remember about this smartwatch; it ranks among the best for :
– Screen size
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
