Analysis and handling of the Pack Forerunner 735XT from Garmin.

Foreword

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. 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
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Pack Forerunner 735XT is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Pack Forerunner 735XT is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
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.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?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the Pack Forerunner 735XT could do for you.
Garmin has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
This model comes standard with GPS.Some users will never use it.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.

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 product with many advantages.Is Pack Forerunner 735XT a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.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.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

Is it suitable for all needs?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
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 Pack Forerunner 735XT…

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.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
