And to begin with…
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.
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 allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the Rosada is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Rosada is no exception.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.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.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.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Interesting for 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 Rosada 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.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.You will have to choose another watch for this.
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 product with many advantages.Is Rosada a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
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?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The Rosada in conclusion
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
