Foreword

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Latec decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
