"Smart" Watch
« on: December 14, 2018, 07:46:04 AM »
I have experienced a few "episodes" with my heartbeat rate so I decided to get one of those gizmos that will monitor my heart rate, etc.  Not that it will change anything but at least I will have a record of what is going on.


 
There are many different ones but I decided to go with this one.  The review that I watched rated Apple as #1 (probably done by Apple) and this Garmin as #2.  I don't know but Fitbit, Garmin, and all of them probably come off of the same assembly line.  At least it is not as bulky as some that I have seen.


 
I did all of the computer & iPhone setup/sync stuff yesterday so we shall see.  So far it has told me that I got 4 hrs & 11 min of deep and 1 hr and 4 min of light sleep last night and I was awake for 10 min.  (I got up at 4:00).   Run time between charges is supposed to be ~5 days.

It's synced up and even gives me a quick look at the weather.

And pretty soon you will be getting emails for sleep aids, custom pillows, new mattress, etc. Nothing these companies do is without attached strings.

I think that it will tell more than I want to know, but I turned off a bunch of stuff.  Right now it will show; time, heartbeats, weather, & footsteps. 

It bluetooths to the phone; heartbeat rate, steps, activity intensity level & minutes, calories used, & deep & light sleep hours & minutes.  Yesterday's and last 7 day's activity.  smiley_dizzy

Incoming texts and phone calls buzz and show up on the screen.

Just watch you don't swat the buzz thinking it is a horse fly!!!  Many moons back I had an issued pager, first time it went off I was at home getting up on a ladder and thought a hornet had landed on my hip and was about to sting me, I hit that thing so hard that it broke the clip right off the back and sent it flying.   ::). Had to call the boss and give him the news.  :-\
