In presentation

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

Several weak points on this watch :

This article will help you see more clearly.

Health follow-up question, what is the ZK-W2 worth?

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.
Our tests have shown that the ZK-W2 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

A connected and practical watch

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the ZK-W2 test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
This model does not have GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The function is not available here.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the ZK-W2 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.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.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.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.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

A connected watch with which applications

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire 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.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.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.

The ZK-W2 in conclusion

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.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
