Analysis and handling of the ZL11 from Janker.

As a preamble to this test

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.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
– Not enough 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The ZL11 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.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 is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
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.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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Dedicated for everyday use

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this ZL11 now.
Through this model, Janker offers an interesting product.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
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, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.

A connected watch for sports

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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 ZL11 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
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.
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.
Another advantage of Janker watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
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.

The right choice for downloading applications?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

In short, The ZL11, the right choice?

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
