Switched on and synced with the mobile device, the Band Style works like a breeze. It comes with 12 workout modes, including running, walking, cycling, swimming, badminton, cricket, yoga, etc., covering most of the sports that are popular among young people. Probing deeper, the Band Style health monitoring function is specialised to detect sleep problems. It supports accurate sleep monitoring, heart rate monitoring, and continuous SpO2 monitoring – providing all-round records and analysis of its user’s sleep health.
The continuous SpO2 monitoring is made possible thanks to the built-in optical blood oxygen sensor. This component enables the Band Style to continuously monitor blood oxygen saturation per second when the user is asleep. During an eight-hour sleep cycle, it conducts non-stop SpO2 monitoring 28,800 times – fully measuring the user’s body oxygen saturation.
The Band Style also comes with a heart rate monitor. The built-in optical heart rate sensor can monitor the user’s heart rate around the clock. If the heart rate becomes too high, the smart band will vibrate to warn the user of irregular heartbeat. With the Band Style measuring heart rate during exercise, users can avoid over-training and learn what pace they need to keep to ensure that they are progressing towards their goals.
Among the usual functions, users can receive messaging and call notifications, control music playback, and even find their mobile phones through the band. The Band Style uses a high-performance, low-power processor and is made with a large 100mAh battery, it can be fully charged in just 1.5 hours.
In summary, with its appealing design and well-built fitness capabilities, the Band Style is here to activate your health, right from your wrist. Worth investing in for a smarter and healthy lifestyle.
