In recent years, smart health watches have attracted considerable attention. "What are smart watches actually doing?" This is a question worth considering.
From the most basic point of view, smart watches are an extension of smartphones. They can receive notifications, receive calls from your wrist, allow you to use the application and tell the time. This always-on function is of great significance for changing watch owners' lifestyle and even their health status. Here are a few ways smart watches can help you improve your health:
Step tracker. One of the easiest ways to improve health and improve exercise is to take 10,000 steps a day. The smart watch has a built-in pedometer, which makes it easy to check the number of steps performed.
Sleep monitoring. According to statistics, more than one-third of adults sleep less than 7 hours a night, and continued lack of sleep can have long-term negative effects on the body. Smart watches can track sleep patterns when worn at night. They can let you know how many hours of sleep you have and the number of uninterrupted hours. Although these sleep statistics cannot replace professional sleep research, they can help you identify patterns and set goals to improve sleep quality and quantity.
Exercise reminder. Everyone knows that we should exercise, but the hardest part of the exercise is getting used to it. Setting exercise reminders is a great way to turn good goals into good habits. If you don’t have a mobile phone, it's easy to miss reminders, but your smart watch will vibrate on your wrist, letting you know it’s time to go to the gym.
Timer and stopwatch. Although this is not necessarily a new feature of smart watches, it has been used on digital watches for many years. Timers and stopwatches are very useful for runners, swimmers and cyclists.
It is easier to listen to music while exercising. You may have your favorite music on your smartphone, but it is often awkward to exercise with a large phone. Many smart watches allow you to load a limited number of favorite songs directly onto the watch independently of your smartphone. Combined with Bluetooth headset, it can bring greater convenience and comfort when exercising.
Custom dial. One of the most popular features of smart watches is the ability to customize the dial, allowing you to express your personality. In addition to the interesting, colorful dial, many smart watches also allow you to add health tracking on the main dial. Add the steps you have taken or increase the target on the dial to put your health first.
The data is analyzed simultaneously. Despite the limited processing power of smart health watch themselves, they are always connected to a smartphone, which allows you to synchronize the health conditions (sleep, steps, etc.) you collect with your phone.
Even with the most powerful features in the world, smart watches still rely on one very important thing: you want to make the most of it.
