I have been determined to get fit and track my progress this year so in order to motivate myself, I decided to purchase a fitness tracker watch. The spec of this fitness tracker watch is quite similar to the more expensive branded ones so I was happy to make this purchase. It arrived quite quickly which was great as I could get to work straight away.
The fitness tracker watch connects to your smart phone wirelessly via Bluetooth and transmits the data to your mobile through an app called Zeroner. This app is available in the Apple app store and the Google Play store so it is compatible with Apple and Android phones.
The watch came in a plastic box with a small set of instructions which were translated into various languages. Before you use the watch, it is recommended to charge it for at least 30 minutes.
Once you download the Zeroner app it is really easy to setup even if you aren’t tech savvy. All you have to do is open up the app then select devices on the menu. It will then display the available devices that you can connect to. When you select your watch, it automatically updates with the date and time.
The watch is a great size and isn’t too bulky. The screen is just the right size to show the details that you need to see without it affecting your wrist movements or looking masculine. The screen is touchscreen and really responsive so doesn’t require any harsh taps. There is also a gesture function available, so when you turn your wrist, the watch lights up and displays the time.
The features of this watch are great. It tracks how many steps I have done, calories burned, distance & time I have spent on fitness throughout each day. At night time, it tracks my sleep and breaks it down into the amount of hours of deep & light sleep I have had. I am also able to set daily goals that I wish to achieve. This is a great benefit to help me get healthier as I can gradually increase my goals. Additionally, if I have been sitting down for too long, the watch vibrates as a friendly reminder/ nudge to get up and get fit.
Besides fitness, the watch also shows and vibrates when you receive a text message, a phone call or any social media message and it also says what the notification is for and from on the screen. The watch also syncs really well with the alarms you have set on your phone via the app. When your alarm goes off, the watch vibrates quite a bit to ensure it wakes you and grabs your attention.
In terms of battery life, I have had this watch for 5 days now and I haven’t needed to charge it yet so I would say that is pretty good considering the amount of data it is dealing with.
The only negative for me is that the app isn’t the best and could do with a face lift but that can be easily fixed and doesn’t affect the functionality of the watch.
I really like this watch and would recommend it to anyone who wants to track their fitness but don’t want to spend too much money. This does exactly what it says it will.
