The body is made in two colors: black and gray and made of special grade stainless steel. There is an addition in the form of a ceramic frame around the glass. The frame is 10.5 mm thick. It cannot be said that it is thin, but it looks best with such a watch.

The black version is made with a black silicone strap. The straps are removable, so you can replace them if necessary. The body is made of stainless steel.

The proprietary technology will not fail and will allow for the most accurate counting of the heart rate per minute. Due to this, the sensor will work more accurately every time. Specifications Inside is a new operating system, which is not based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100. The developers decided to insert a dual-processor Cortex A4 chip.

Built-in standard applications in the form of a stopwatch, timer, compass, and measuring atmospheric pressure. The latest technology distinguishes about 10 types of sleep and can deduce the necessary parameters to improve the body’s state.

But users do not forget about the shortcomings: the watch sometimes freezes when temperatures change in the negative direction and the high cost of the watch.
In our country, a watch’s cost starts from 19 thousand and ends with 24 thousand rubles. Not every citizen can afford such a thing. But those who already have it are largely satisfied with their purchase. If you are not satisfied with the manufacturer’s market price, you can buy either dealers or an analog from China. The latter version will be less in the region of 14 thousand rubles, but the quality will differ. It will not be possible to find such expensive and high-quality materials.
