Instead of running his watch with a known system, Vigorun decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
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.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
