This watch comes with various fitness features as it uses multiple sensors with advanced algorithms to provide fitness solutions and make working out more efficient and effective. With one click on the crown, this watch opens the workout App to start training in an instant. Quick start running modes “fat-burning run” and “cardio run” allow runners to start quickly and the watch will guide your speed to stay in the correct heart rate zone. With its GPS and heart rate detection system, it measures your VO2max after each run.
Its Daily Tracking App accurately tracks users’ daily steps, record time taken for medium to high intensity exercises, and detect the number of times you stand up after long sedentary periods. It also measures your Resting Heart Rate, which is recorded in the activity monitor app.
