About Healhwatch

Losing weight and getting fit is not easy and lots of people quickly lose their motivation.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a companion to keep you motivated and focused on your fitness goal?

This is why fitness watches have really exploded in popularity.

So, how does the Healthwatch rate in the currently crowded field of smartwatches?

What Is Healthwatch?

The Healthwatch is a premium wristwatch that does a whole lot more than just tell the time.

It also measures your heart rate, your blood pressure, and your blood oxygen level. Like other watches of this kind, it will also track your steps, including your calories burned and the distance you’ve moved.

On top of all this, it also connects to iOS and Android devices and includes notifications for SMS messages and phone calls.

All in all, it seems like a pretty comprehensive product aimed squarely at the health conscious person who needs a little extra digital help to meet their fitness goals.

Technical Specs

Here’s a breakdown of all of the important specifications:

  • Bluetooth connection to either iOS or Android devices
  • A large digital display that is easy to read at a glance
  • Waterproof and IP67 certification
  • Included sensor for heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels
  • Made from high-quality materials

Top Features

No matter how good a smartwatch looks, it has to have enough features to entice the consumer. Given the wide range of fitness trackers and smartwatches on the market these days, great features are important. Here are the top features of the Healthwatch:

1. Social Media Notifications

Apart from the phone and SMS notifications, there are also social media notifications. This is good news for the modern consumer today who uses a lot of social media. It makes the Healthwatch much more of an all-in-one device that will find broad appeal.

2. Accurate Sensor

The included sensor detects heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level. When worn each day, it provides important health information at a glance due to the large and easy to read display.

3. IP67 Rating

The IP67 rating guarantees that the Healthwatch is dust proof and water proof. It has been rated to be waterproof for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter.

4. Bluetooth

Included Bluetooth technology ensures that the Healthwatch can connect to both iOS and Android devices to send and receive information.

Customer Reviews

Most consumers really liked the look of the watch and found that the battery life was surprisingly excellent. More specifically, they expected a poorer battery life at the price the Healthwatch retails at, but were pleasantly surprised.

People also really liked the fact that the screen is touch sensitive. This means that they can easily control the watch without having to dig into button controlled menus on screen.

One consumer who also swims loved the fact that he could keep wearing the watch while he was swimming so that he could also keep a check on his health and fitness essentials.

Our Review

No matter how moderate your fitness goals are, it’s easy to stay motivated. This is why fitness trackers and smartwatches have become very popular.

Lots of people find that they feel more motivated and energized when they have a digital companion onboard to give them motivation and important health information.

So, how does the Healthwatch stack up against the competition?

One thing that we noticed right away is how good looking the Healthwatch is. Unlike the less expensive models, the Healthwatch has a lovely looking screen that’s easy to read.

It’s made of metal and is rounded at the edges for a sleeker look. We were able to easily read our blood pressure, heart rate, and so on at a glance at any time of the day due to the brightness of the display.

We also like the fact that the Healthwatch is IP67 rated. You never mean to drop your devices or get them wet, but if you accidentally forget to take it off before a shower or a bath, it’s not going to burn out and break.

One other thing we really enjoyed is the ability to control a smartphone camera from the Healthwatch.

It communicates with a smartphone via included Bluetooth and this means that it can also control the onboard camera, too. If you’re so inclined, you can set up your smartphone to take a selfie or group snap and then simply tap your wrist to control the shutter.

The Healthwatch will also monitor your sleeping patterns. Lots of people use apps on their phone to do this, but we like the fact that it’s integrated right into the watch. We think this will make for more accurate sleep pattern readings, too, if you wear the watch overnight.

Final Opinion: Is It Worth It?

We think the Healthwatch will certainly appeal to a broad range of people who want a nice looking digital companion in their lives to help them lose weight and get fit. It will even tell you if you’ve been sitting in one spot for too long so you can get up and get some exercise.
