Fitness tracking features such as real-time heart rate monitor, intelligent sleep monitor, as well as 10 sports modes (such as running, cycling, swimming, etc). Other key features include 6-axis inertial sensor and blood oxygen level tracker, which can help monitor fatigue, dizziness, and poor sleep.
