Is the SW01-1 compatible with healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The SW01-1 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Arbily decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
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.In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
