TOP QUALITY MATERIALS
Tailor the watch´s look to your lifestyle with options like a sapphire display, titanium bezel, or stainless steel bezel.
For altitude acclimatization or sleep monitoring, a pulse oximeter 2 uses light beams at the wrist to measure how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
HEART RATE SENSOR ON THE WRIST
The watch constantly measures your heart rate 3 and alerts you if it remains too high or too low while you´re at rest. It also helps measure the intensity of your exertion during activities, even while swimming.
Track how you breathe throughout the day, while you sleep, and during breath control techniques and yoga activities.
Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress score, so you can see if your day is calm, balanced, or stressful.
SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MANAGEMENT
Get a full breakdown of light, deep, and REM sleep stages. You can see it all in a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and tips.
BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITOR
Optimize your body´s energy reserves with the help of heart rate variability, stress and sleep data, among others, to know when you are ready to go or when you need to rest.
It allows you to record your daily fluid intake to remind you to maintain a good level of hydration. In addition, you can set automatic hydration goals, adapted to how much you sweat during exercises.
