This ID205L gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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 connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
