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 may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The Rosa may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Rosa 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.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
A connected and practical watch
Do you need a smart watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the Rosa test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
The battery power is not the best, 200 mAh, corresponding to an average power.
The manufacturer indicates 15 hours of battery life.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Duoduogo didn’t see fit to install it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Duoduogo opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Duoduogortunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.
Duoduogo’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Is Rosa a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
The battery is in the average range with a power of 200 mAh.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
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 Duoduogo watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
A connected watch with which applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
Its 1.4-inch screen size will also make it easy for you to read the information.Finally, its 200 mAh battery is in the average.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Rosa, the right choice for the right use
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
