Doctors say that most diseases can be cured by responding to the first symptoms in time. However, only a few people have enough medical knowledge to recognize these symptoms. Fortunately, today there are many useful devices that help us to monitor the body condition. Many gadgets even stimulate human physical activity.
Today we will look at some budget and reliable smartwatches and smart bands with support of ECG sensor and other useful functions for health monitoring.
Why do you need ECG in smartwatch / fitness bracelet?
According to medical professionals, you need to listen to the signals sent by the body to avoid health problems. You also need to move more, lead an active lifestyle, monitor nutrition and the progress of your health.
According to the head of Academy of Public Health, the heart is the most important internal organ of a person whose activities must be constantly monitored. This can be done regularly by visiting doctors, conducting tests, and also leading an active lifestyle. Sport improves blood circulation and contributes to longevity of the heart.
Today, we have access to technologies such as smart bracelets and smartwatches with support of ECG functions, heart rate monitoring and monitor of oxygen in the blood. They offer unique opportunities for tracking the health and body response to physical exertion. It is very important that we do not go beyond our capabilities and do not overload the heart.
The wearable market is growing rapidly. Smartwatches and bracelets help to track how much the heart rate increases, and how the heart reacts to the physical load. More and more smartwatches and bracelets are paying special attention to new technologies. One of them is to track not only the heart rate, but also to create an electrocardiogram.
Doctors recommend using bracelets and watches with electrocardiographic sensors for both beginners and more experienced athletes. ECG sensor allows you to check the heart rate anywhere. You don’t need special devices, just smartwatch with ECG. Just 30 seconds, and the results you see on the screen of your watch or bracelet.
As a rule, smart bracelets with built-in ECG sensor are expensive, but on the Chinese market you can find budget high-quality options. For example, a fitness bracelet NO.1 DT58 costs only $19.
The bracelet has a very simple and versatile design. It is suitable for both women and men. NO.1 DT58 is equipped with 1.14-inch color screen and a soft silicone strap.
By the way, the strap is available in different colors. You can choose both in standard white and black colors, and in bright ones: blue, violet and red.
As for functions, NO.1 DT58 supports ECG, heart rate monitor, blood pressure monitor, as well as oxygen in the blood and sleep. The bracelet tracks the distance, the number of steps taken and much more.
Also, a smart bracelet has IP68 water protection and battery life up to 7 days on single charge.
Another budget alternative to an expensive smartwatch is NO.1 DT28. This smartwatch is a bit more expensive than the previous device, but still cheap compared to foreign analogues – $29.
NO.1 DT28 were presented in February at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Now it is one of the most popular budget smartwatches on the market.
The design of NO.1 DT28 and NO.1 DT58 is very different. NO.1 DT28 look like a watch with a large round dial. All information is displayed on a color 1.54-inch screen. The watch design is also universal – just pick up the strap that you like best. By the way, the smartwatch offers 7 different straps, which differ not only in colors, but also in materials.
The functions of NO.1 DT28 are the same as of NO.1 DT58. The user can measure the heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen in the blood and make an electrocardiogram. The results of all sensors are displayed on the screen of smartwatches.
Of course, sleep monitor, pedometer, distance, sport modes, alarm clock, notifications, music control, smartphone camera, etc. are available.
This watch is also protected from water according to IP68. The battery life is 6 days.
NO.1 DT28 and NO.1 DT58 are budget devices with price tag of only $19 and $29, respectively. They have mane useful functions. The main difference between them is design and size. The functions are the same, so you need to choose a design – a fitness bracelet or a watch.
NO.1 wearable devices allow regular monitor heart rate, blood pressure, sleep, etc. Also, the user can receive notifications, control the music and camera on smartphone, as well as use the alarm clock and sport modes.
The success of these sports assistants prompted other manufacturers to do something similar. Just a few weeks ago, Alfawise I7E fitness bracelet was introduced for $27. It has similar features as NO.1 DT28 and NO.1 DT58, including ECG sensor.
