The watch contains 5 exercise sensors, can monitor a range of exercise scenarios, and is water-resistant to 50 meters, making it easier to incorporate exercise into any lifestyle.

Further, it can constantly monitor heart rate and generate a chart showing heart rate over the past 24 hours. Other functions such as activity and breathing reminders and monthly cycle monitoring for female users are also available.
