Analysis and handling of the X11 from Donerton.

As a preamble to this test

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The X11 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.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 main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the X11 test shows.
Through this model, Donerton offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
The manufacturer indicates 7 hours of battery life.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.We explain what X11 can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.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.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

The Donerton watch: a good choice to be connected?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
With its large 1.4-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

The X11 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.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
