The best wearable gadgets do more than just notify you when you get a phone call or a text message on your wrist. They’re all-in-one devices that can serve as a fitness tracker, a digital wallet, and, in some circumstances, a phone, even if your smartphone isn’t nearby.
Smartwatches now offer various health functions that can save your life in addition to fitness monitoring. Certain premium models also provide electrocardiograms (ECGs). Which will help in identifying atrial fibrillation symptoms, and blood oxygen (SpO2) measurements that will measure your respiratory health.
