Instead of running his watch with a known system, Fitbit decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.Menus and features are less easy to find.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This Sense gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.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.With the help of the electrocardiogram function, this model will help you to measure the curve of your heartbeat and be able to control its evolution.
