For several years now, Yonmig has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Yonmig’s YM-CS201 offers its latest high-end model.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Yonmig decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.

Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
