Analysis and handling of the ZK-W2 from Zkcreation.

To start

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.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

A watch connected for health

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The ZK-W2 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It may be used for simple information purposes only.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 ZK-W2 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
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.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

The right choice every day?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the ZK-W2 could do for you.
Through this model, Zkcreation offers an interesting product.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
This model does not have GPS.Zkcreation didn’t see fit to install it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.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.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.

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.And as far as the ZK-W2 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in 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.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.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.

The ZK-W2 in conclusion

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
