Is the ROU1ARGBL compatible with healthy use?
For several years now, Luniqueshop has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Clearly, the ROU1ARGBL is one of the best possible choices.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This ROU1ARGBL 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.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the ROU1ARGBL could do for you.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Luniqueshoprtunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the ROU1ARGBL detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include 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 positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
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 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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
What about the ROU1ARGBL?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
