We’ve already covered the AllCall W1 smartwatch over here at GizChina. This Made-in-China smart wearable is powered by quite some hardware which is it’s also considered a phone, literally. Indeed the W1 packs a Mediatek MTK6580 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
Other specs include an AMOLED 240×240 display, a 400mAh battery and Bluetooth 4.0. But what good is all this hardware for if you can’t take advantage of it? Today we’re going to check out exactly that, how the AllCall W1 utilizes its high performance to help you improve your health status.
Let’s begin with the built-in professional pedometer IC and heart rate monitor. These really important sensors will allow you the smartwatch to keep track of your steps, calories burnt and more crucial data, that paired with the constant heart rate monitoring could help notice either too high or low resting heart rate, which could indicate health problems.
Another neat feature of the W1 is its ability of accepting a SIM card, so you can insert yours and be connected all the time, everywhere you are. If, for example, you’re at the gym and don’t want to bring your phone with you, then you can use your smartwatch’s 3G connectivity to receive calls, messages, notifications and so on.
Lastly, the motion sensor under the hood will allow the watch to understand your sleep patterns, telling you how many hours of light or heavy sleep you have done, thus possibly helping you improve that as well.
