This is achieved with a micro compression pump of 40kPa, which allows this measurement. In the same way, this physical element is combined with a measurement algorithm that is aided by artificial intelligence, to minimize errors when measuring.
The sensors do not end here, as it boasts an accelerometer, gyroscope, optical sensor for heart rate measurement, electrocardiogram measurement, blood pressure monitor, oximeter, and barometer. A whole array of health-oriented hardware.
The panel is 1.64-inch AMOLED, with a resolution of 456×280 pixels. The battery promises a week of use and at the software, level comes with up to 70 sports modes. The operating system is Huawei’s own, so we will be able to receive notifications and the basic functions of a smartwatch without an app store.
