Instead of running his watch with a known system, Taoshu decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.

If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.

There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
