Smartron tband comes equipped with useful features such as ECG and BP monitoring to measure fatigue and stress factors. It also does continuous heart rate monitoring. It includes thealth app to give users Health Index Score. It is a combination of activity tracking, sleeping patterns, calorie count, stress and fatigue levels in addition to Blood Pressure and Heart Health.
Compatibility and Battery!
The fitness band comes with 18mm changeable watch straps. The tband also has an IP 67 rating that makes it dust and water resistant. The tband is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones, sporting an OLED display with a 100mAh LI battery that lasts for 2-4 days depending on notifications and usage.
The tband’s body includes a 0.96-inch screen carved inside a metal frame with steel buckle. This gives it a rugged and reliable feel.
There are no physical buttons on the tband, and the screen doesn’t support touch input. One can toggle through the various screen readings by tapping on the metal sensor next to the screen. To change time and date user needs to connect it to the thealth app (free; Android, iOS) via Bluetooth. Pairing is easy and quick, but the band needs to be fully charged.
There are two light sensors at the base for tracking heart rate. When combined with the metal sensor next to the screen it can calculate blood pressure.
The healthy thing is that you cannot only measure your health count but also answer your calls, text your friends, get notifications, customize your alarm and even set reminders using tband. The wearable is also compatible with Smarton’s thealth app, which is the company’s proprietary health tracking app.
