The market for devices that monitor our health is growing daily. Proof of this is that, according to the 2023 Huawei European Health Survey, 87% of smartwatch users have adopted new healthy behaviors because of their devices.

Such devices are increasingly popular, including due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, we have smartwatches and smartbands (also known as wearables), which They monitor sleep, heart rate, stress, training and even blood oxygen levels.

“Monitoring your performance and progress every day is a great motivator for maintaining consistency and achieving new goals. Having the number of steps per minute on hand can help you meet your exercise goal more easily”, said the Dr. Drauzio Varella on the use of wearables, in material published in Estadão.

Therefore, the question that remains is: how do these devices manage to know so much about your health?

The magic behind these technoalloys are in the sensors of these devices. From accelerometers and gyroscopes to optical and heart rate sensors, these components work together with intelligent algorithms to collect a variety of biometric data.

Optical sensors, for example, allow smart watches to monitor our heart rate and blood oxygen levels using green light technology. Accelerometers and gyroscopes detect movements and physical activities, such as steps taken, distances covered and even the quality of sleep.

Nonetheless, just collecting data is not enough. At this stage, intelligent algorithms come into action that use machine learning to analyze the data obtained and extract valuable information about our health.

For example, these algorithms can identify patterns in our heartbeats that suggest times of stress or anxiety. In some cases, they can also recognize changes in our sleeping patterns that could indicate health problems.

How does Huawei help in this scenario?

Huawei has a complete and diverse portfolio, which unites all the technology points we mentioned above. These elements appear in products recently launched by the company, like the HUAWEI Band 9 and the WATCH FIT 3.

Compatible with iOS and Android, these devices detect and monitor all the data mentioned, through TruSeen systemsTM 5.5, TruSleepTM 4.0 e TruSportTM, which are available in the HUAWEI Health app. The app, in turn, cross-references information and offers personalized reports and recommendations throughout the day.

The application can maintain all of the user’s information history, and even allows you to create communities with friends and family to share health, training and sleep data with each other.

Another feature that helps with a healthier lifestyle is StayFit, an application pre-installed on the WATCH FIT 3, which allows you to record each meal, either directly via the watch or via HUAWEI Health. This way, the watch calculates the calorie deficit – which is nothing more than the difference between the amount of calories consumed and spent during the day – based on what you consumed and the data collected during the day. This way, anyone can track their calorie consumption and exercise effectiveness, so they can achieve their health goals.

As a result, state-of-the-art monitoring systems, combined with the HUAWEI Health app, which uses intelligent algorithms to qualitatively analyze this information, make these wearables powerful allies in the search for a healthier and more active routine.
