The system even provides personal water recommendations based on perspiration data. The Sleep Coaching program offers a monthly sleep improvement program by tracking key indicators including blood oxygen levels and snoring. By connecting to the smart home system, the smartwatch adjusts the level of lighting, the air temperature on the air conditioner and the TV while the owner sleeps, trying to create the optimal atmosphere. Finally, there is a fall control function, and if the user suddenly loses his balance, the emergency contact will receive an incident notification.
