Smartwatches are getting smarter with every generation. Manufacturers add new useful features to them, and if the most popular ones are in almost every model, some can be found not in all. For example…
Everyone knows that physical activity is good for health, but how to understand exactly how many steps you need to go and how many calories to burn? To gather together all the information about daily activity, the PAI calculation system is used, which is used in all Amazfit watches.
As a result, the user receives an individual assessment of activity in the form of a number – the higher it is, the more effective your workouts were during the week (data are summarized for the last 7 days). Based on PAI, you can draw conclusions about the need to do additional training or praise yourself for a high level of activity.
Not all smartwatches can work with an always-on screen, and this is one of the most useful features of these devices. In Always-On mode, the display always shows the time and notifications – this allows you not to miss an important message and be aware of current tasks.
In addition, with an active screen, smartwatches are as similar to chronographs as possible – they look much better than just a black display on your wrist. By choosing different watch faces, you can change the design of the gadget to suit your style.
The barometer is an indispensable sensor for all lovers of extreme and mountain sports. In smart watches, it serves not only to measure atmospheric pressure, but also to determine the height above sea level. For example, the Amazfit GTS 3 model uses a barometric altimeter: in combination with GPS, it helps the watch determine at what height the user is. In the mountains, altitude data allows you to better navigate the terrain.
But more often, barometer readings are used to predict the weather in a particular place. If the pressure rises, the weather is likely to be sunny soon. If it falls, it may increase wind, cloudiness, rain. On camping trips, when there is no access to the Internet, a barometer can come in handy. Fishermen also look at him: depending on the atmospheric pressure, you can predict the behavior of fish in a pond.
Tracker for work
Smartwatches can also be used for everyday tasks, such as improving concentration and monitoring work time. On Amazfit models, the Pomodoro Tracker widget is used for this: with its help, it is suggested to set work and break times to maintain a balance between work and rest.
The tracker will remind you of the need to take a break from work to drink tea or do exercises. In the classic “pomodoro” version, this is 25 minutes of work and 5 minutes of rest before the next task. Pomodoro Tracker is available, for example, in Amazfit Bip U.
Another useful feature that will definitely come in handy for women is tracking the cycle using smartwatches. For example, on Amazfit GTS 2 Mini, you can make marks on the calendar about the current menstruation. Based on this data, the gadget will calculate the periods of ovulation and the dates of the next cycle, and will also send a notification about the approach of critical days – so that they do not take the girl by surprise.
