Health Monitoring Smartwatch VS. Normal Smartwatch. How should we choose?


In 2016, Apple launched the Watch S6, which made a breakthrough by adding the ECG monitoring function. This is different from the simple information reminders, heart rate and sleep records of conventional smart watches. The S6 allows smart watches to open another avenue-health monitoring. However, many people still have the impression of smart watches: information reminders, step records, time reminders, and simple heart rate sleep records. But as everyone knows, with the continuous advancement of technology, smart watches are no longer what they used to be. So what is the difference between health monitoring watches and traditional smart watches?

Product Positioning

Normal consumer-grade smart watches focus on electronic functions, somewhat like a "micro phone", supporting various functions like NFC, APP application, payment, message reminder and some conventional walkout, heart rate recording, etc. While the monitoring smart watch focuses on health monitoring, with the purpose of helping users achieve self-health tracking, management and analysis.

Health monitoring smart watch users can track and monitor their own ECG, blood oxygen, blood pressure, body temperature, blood sugar, etc., so that the health status can be visualized.

Crowd positioning
Generally, traditional consumer smart watches are suitable for "electronic fans". They are more inclined to experience "new tech", such as the new design of the watch, cool functions, operation and so on. Therefore, traditional consumer-grade smart watches are suitable for most people who want to experience the electronic functions and new tech of smartwatch. And they are mainly young people.

Healthy smart watches are suitable for sports enthusiasts and people with chronic disease tendencies and health management needs. They are more inclined to experience the monitoring function of smart watches on health data. They use watches to monitor body temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen supply, ECG and other physical signs in real time, manage various health indicators, and prevent risks.

Why the health monitoring makes sense?
Nowadays, many people care about the accuracy of smart watch monitoring, so that there are various evaluations, and the benchmark is professional medical equipment, so smart watch monitoring is labeled as "tasteless". But in fact, objectively speaking, a smart watch is just a self-monitoring smart product, while a medical machine is a professional medical grade, which is definitely not the same level. And even with a professional machine, the results of his monitoring still have certain accuracy errors. In this way, is smart watch monitoring meaningless? You are wrong.
In fact, smart watch health monitoring is to assist us in daily health management. It continuously records and stores our health data to determine our health trends. Most people regard smart watch monitoring as a test Instruments that focus on single result values. But in fact, this kind of thinking is obviously wrong. Smart watch health monitoring can provide us with a reference range, and through continuous recording, so as to analyze your health status, which requires daily long-term use for data accumulation .

Let's us look at the ECG test, If you want to compare the ECG monitoring function of a smart watch with a hospital ECG monitor, it's certainly a boring thing . Because smart watches allow users in need to monitor at home, eliminating the trouble of going to the hospital for monitoring. Heart problems are difficult to detect in the early stage. Smart watches can help users to defend and analyze, and remind users to intervene as soon as possible if there is any abnormality.

Just taking the RIG smart watch as an example, its electrocardiogram ECG monitoring function has been proved by experiments that the accuracy is between 85% and 95%, which is enough for screening early heart disease such as premature beats, jumping beats, and atrial fibrillation. At the same time, RIG will also record and feedback the user's ECG electrocardiogram, and the user can share the report with family members or professionals to get advice, adjust the health status in time, or use it as reference data when seeking medical treatment according to their own needs.
