  • blood pressure;
  • number of steps;
  • movement speed.

In addition to collecting data, an iWatch owner will be able to:

  • see the progress;
  • set goals for the day;
  • get detailed information about daily activities.

The user sees the information concerning the distance covered in the form of rings. The ring, counting how many active calories were burned and human steps were taken, is called ‘Activity'. Their number is displayed in the form of a red bar, which will be filled during the day depending on the goal set.

By the way walk with the pram is the physical training too.

    I recently purchased an applewatch, and I’ve been wanting them for a long time. I like the watch both for its appearance and functionality. Keeping track of the steps taken during the day and counting calories is very cool for me, because I try to keep track of the state of my body. I went to this site to find out a little more about it, and found some cool apps and tips. Thanks to developers!

    I am not a sportsperson, but recently I have started getting in shape. And I started to use a smart pedometer. It took not very long time to realize how to use it. Now I have been using this app for 1 month. I could definitely say that this app is a good helper for people who are going to get fit. I can count my calories, measure steps. When I see that I haven’t got enough steps I go outside and run around the house. ;-)
