Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
