The S8-PINK, the right one for healthy use?

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Pthtechus decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
The S8-PINK unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
