A watch connected for health
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The SW-045045 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
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 SW-045045 test shows.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
The battery power is not the best, 210 mAh, corresponding to an average power.
The manufacturer indicates 10 hours of battery life.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
An ingenious feature on this SW-045045 is the ability to recharge wirelessly.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus 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.
Latec’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
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 relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what SW-045045 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
With a battery power of 210 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Finally, its 210 mAh battery is in the average.Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
Finally, The SW-045045…
