On the backside, it contains the sensors of the watch and the metallic charging terminal. Along with it, we get the branding beneath the sensors along with a speaker. Now coming to the side of the pTron Force X11 we get a dial knob which is multifunctional and a microphone that helps while calling directly with the smartwatch. After unboxing the product, we saw the smartwatch came with a replaceable black silicone strap attached with the body which is again a comfortable one.
Overall the pTron Force X11 is comfortable to wear and has a decent dial size with a huge display which again gives a comfortable view of the smartwatch contents on the go. The fonts and UI of the smartwatch are unconditionally catchy for the eyes on daily usage. The smartwatch is sturdy and looks premium for its pricing.
Display and UI
As mentioned earlier, the pTron Force X11 comes with a 1.7-inch rectangular display size HD color 2.5D curved display with Metal Alloy casing with a resolution of 240 x 280 Pixels. The colors on the display look good and the text is sharp to read to on any kind of scenario, be it outdoor or indoor. The watch provides an ample amount of brightness and hence I had no problem viewing the screen outdoors under bright sunlight.
The pTron Force X11 has a clean user interface and responsive touch which delivers smooth navigation and effortless control over the contents. The overall watch UI is very user-friendly.
All the applications within the smartwatch are easy to navigate. Swipe down for watch settings like brightness, call connectivity, and others. Swipe up for notification alerts, swipe right for various application pages, and swipe left for the watch menu which is displayed both in honeycomb and 9 square formats.
The pTron Force X11 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity covering a range of 10 meters. It connects to both Android and iPhone with its compatible app. The watch easily connects with its compatible application in no time. The smartwatch has two types of receivers- one for the watch (pTron Watch) and the other for its audio (pTron Audio). These two connect at the same time with a smartphone when Bluetooth is turned on.
After the watch is connected with the app, you will continue to receive notifications of incoming calls and other alerts at the very same time. The connectivity range of the watch is also good so even if you are far from your phone, it shall not fail to notify you with important calls and reminders.
The most valuable feature of the pTron Force X11 is its calling feature via an inbuilt microphone for voice reception during a call and an inbuilt speaker for hearing it. While clicking on the Call icon on the smartwatch we can see three options among which there is Call History, Dial Pad and Contact options.
From the Da Fit app, one can add up to three contacts of yours that remain saved on your smartwatch itself. From the contacts, you can make calls directly when needed after pairing with your smartphone without touching the device.
pTron Force X11 has gone a step further by adding a dial-pad which helps to call any number without touching your phone. The number dialed from the dial-pad makes a call from the device connected to the watch in real-time. This helps the user to make any calls by dialing the number without saving in smartwatch contacts.
The Call History shows the last four dialed or called contacts or numbers from the phone and smartwatch both along with its dates. This helps to keep track of any particular contact in any situation.
While making a call via pTron Force X11 the UI of the smartwatch allows adjusting the volume of its speakers on the display along with the options of rejecting the call. You also get an option to reject and accept a call, when someone calls on your paired smartphone, from the watch.
Da Fit App
pTron Force X11 can be paired with both Android and iOS devices with its compatible app which is called ‘Da Fit’ app. When connected via a device we can get detailed data about the various functionalities of the watch in the Da Fit App such as the record of sleep time for a complete week, the heartbeat, BP and other health results, the number of calories lost during your last exercise session etc.
You get 5 inbuilt pre-installed watch faces with the fifth one being customizable with photos of your choice from the app. Another watch face can be changed as per your choice along with over 200 downloadable watch faces. You can also customize several features via the app which can not be altered from the watch as well.
Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, most people have restrained themselves from going to the gym and have started working out in their own homes. pTron Force X11 comes very handy with keeping track of the number of calories you want to burn each day or calculating the duration of your daily exercise time. It can even check your heart rate along with the blood oxygen level and others.
It has the functionalities to record the number of steps, duration, and pace during various outdoor activities and track various other activities like swimming, cycling, skipping, running etc. It has a total of 7 Fitness Modes instilled within it. Detailed information about each fitness mode can be obtained from its compatible app.
pTron Force X11 is both water and sweat resistive with an IP68 rating hence no need to worry about any sort of damage during your favorite training sessions. It can also accompany you during your swimming sessions. Still, it would have definitely been better if more sports modes would have been provided inside the watch.
