Analysis and handling of the SP-Y11 from LDB.

In a few words

Connected watches have become powerful.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.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
Its weight/size
Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
Its daily use
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 perfect watch for health monitoring?

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The SP-Y11 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.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.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire 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.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

The right choice every day?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the SP-Y11 test shows.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.At 74 grams, this makes it one of the lightest models in its class.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, we would have appreciated the LDBrtunity to listen to music on this model.The function is not available here.

LDB’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the SP-Y11 detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 74 grams make it one of the heaviest smartwatches.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.You will thus be able to receive your notifications directly on the watch.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right choice for downloading applications?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.57 inches.It is one of the lightest watches – 74 grams.
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.

Finally, The SP-Y11…

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.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Screen size
The few weak points could be:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
