Nokia Steel HR
This is smart watch that looks like a normal watch, but it functions smartly! The watch dial consists of a real time heart rate monitor. The activity tracker identifies a run, walk, swim, and sleep activities, and creates a detailed report in the app.
This watch recognizes 10+ activities like dancing, volleyball, ping-pong, etc. It also counts number of steps, calories burned, distance covered, etc. It uses Bluetooth connectivity to transfer all the data into the Nokia Health Mate app.
A FITGuard placed in the mouth is useful for athletes involved in a rough sport. At times the players are naive to the severity of the fall, and end up with grave injuries. So the device detects, and informs the intensity of the fall to prevent further injuries.
It is connected to an app, and data is fed in real time. The fellow athletes, and family members can also monitor the impact of the fall, and decide if the athlete needs medical attention.
FITGuard explains that keeping this device in the mouth has a lot of benefits. The sensor placement of the mouth is much more accurate than any device that is strapped onto a helmet or a chin strap.
Thus keeping the FITGuard in the mouth is highly beneficial as mouth sensors correlate with the center of gravity of the brain, this helps in tracking the intensity of the hit or the fall. A ligament tear, shoulder pain, and brain injury is detected by the device.
