Before You Buy a Smartwatch, You Must Know These Life-saving Functions!


This article will give you a detailed introduction to the common health functions in smartwatches to help you better understand this smart wearable device.

 the common health functions in smartwatches

Just as the main function of a smartphone is no longer limited to making calls and texting, if we buy a smartwatch, we can't just use it to check the time. The functions of smartwatches are divided into two categories: sports functions and health functions. The sports function revolves around some common sports methods, and the smartwatch plays the role of recording and reminding.

At present, health-related functions on smartwatches include biochemical functions such as heart rate monitoring and blood oxygen saturation detection, as well as accidental detection such as falls. Don't look at the following functions that seem too conceptual, they will play a key role in specific use.

Heart rate detection

Smartwatches have long been equipped with heart rate monitoring functions. Many users have been saved by wearing smartwatches, and many media have reported it many times. For example, in April 2018, Oklahoma student Skylar Joslin was in class when his smartwatch warned of an abnormal heart rate. Joslin had previously suffered from tachycardia, so he texted the reminder to his mother. Afterward, Joslin's mother took him to a nearby emergency room immediately. It took 7.5 hours for Joslin to be safe.

Blood oxygen saturation detection

Many users who travel to plateau areas report that when severe altitude sickness occurs, the watch shows that the blood oxygen saturation is close to 80%, while the normal number is between 95% and 100%. Many users basically adjust their travel and oxygen rhythm according to the remainder of the watch.

In addition, pneumonia disease is often accompanied by a sharp drop in blood oxygen saturation. The United Kingdom provides oximeters to all people in high-risk areas of infection. Smartwatches equipped with blood oxygen saturation detection functions have also become effective detection tools during the epidemic.

Fall detection

There are more examples of fall detection. When the user falls, the smartwatch will judge the user's status. If the user is unable to move, the watch will automatically send an alarm and transmit positioning information.

This function can provide potential protection for elderly users and users who love cycling and other sports. A young couple trekking in New Jersey accidentally fell off a cliff. Because of the fracture, they caused during the fall, they thought they were going to die. Unexpectedly, their smartwatch automatically dialed 911 to help them call rescuers.

On the Chinese Internet, a user shared a similar experience. He fell while riding on the road at night, and his mobile phone could not be used on the spot. The Apple Watch contacted the "emergency contact" and was eventually rescued. The user sent a thank you note to CEO Tim Cook and received a reply.

When we buy smartwatches, we should also focus on the health functions of smartwatches. Choosing a smartwatch with multiple health functions will help us out of danger in many critical moments.
