What health functions does a smart watch have?

Pedometer or Step Counter

This is the most basic and important function of a smart watch. It tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned throughout the day. A pedometer is a device that counts your steps by detecting your body’s motion. It is usually clipped onto your waistband or placed in your pocket.

Heart Rate Monitor

A heart rate monitor is a great feature to have if you are looking to improve your fitness or track your heart health. How does a heart rate monitor work? It uses sensors to detect your heart rate and then displays it on the screen. The normal heart rate for a person is 60-100 bpm (beats per minute), if the heart rate is higher than 160bpm, it is called tachycardia, and if the heart rate is lower than 60bpm, it is called bradycardia. Both can be very dangerous, especially for those who have heart disease.

Sleep Tracking

So how does sleep tracking monitor your sleep quality? It uses sensors to detect your sleep patterns and then displays it on the screen. The normal sleep cycle for a person is 90-110 minutes, and it consists of 4 stages: light sleep, deep sleep, REM sleep, and wakefulness. With Runmifit or Runmefit Apps, you can view the sleep graphs in the App.

Blood Oxygen Monitor

Blood oxygen monitor or SpO2 sensor is very important for athletes and people who have heart conditions. It can help them to track their blood oxygen level and see if it is in the normal range. The normal blood oxygen level for a person is 95-100%, and if the level drops below 90%, it is called hypoxemia. Blood oxygen is also useful to monitor COVID-19 patients’ conditions, if blood oxygen drops below 90% that means you may need immediate medical help.
