Walking in natural areas is a well-liked form of recreation that entices millions of people in the United States to spend time outside each year. According to the most recent figures, over half of all people residing in the United States took part in hiking activities of some kind in the year 2016.
UWear is a brand-new piece of technology that offers pretty much everything that one might want in a watch designed for hikers. It has a wrist-based heart rate monitor, an always-on display, real-time location monitoring, and a variety of sports modes, in addition to an integrated navigation system, a battery life of 45 days, and an always-on display. In addition to that, you will find a compass, barometer, and altimeter, in addition to a thermometer and hygrometer.
The navigation system is almost certainly the element that is considered to be of the utmost importance for hikers. Because UWear is compatible with all three of the most popular satellite navigation systems—GPS, GLONASS, and BDS—you can be sure that you will never get lost, even if you forget to bring your smartphone with you. The watch records your starting place as well as your distance traveled, as well as your speed and pace as you move down the course. Additionally, it prevents you from going back and forth along the same path over and over again.
Your loved ones and close friends will be able to keep track of your whereabouts in real time if you have a smartwatch that lets you share your location with them. The only thing that is required of them is to download the UWear app onto their mobile device. This also has a social component to it because it enables you to talk about your most recent experience with the people you care about. In the event that something untoward does occur, the watch is equipped with an SOS function that, when activated by pressing a button, sends a signal of distress to the people that you have pre-selected.
UWear also operates as a normal activity monitor, so that you can gain credit for the effort that you put in. In addition to monitoring your heart rate, it will also keep track of the number of steps you take and the calories you burn. In addition, UWear allows you to choose from ten distinct sports modes, and it will then monitor relevant data for you based on the sport that you select.
And let’s not forget the functions that are more commonly found on smartphones. UWear is designed to notify you of incoming calls, texts, and push notifications once it is attached to your smartphone.
This watch is designed specifically for hikers and is constructed from high-performance materials, making it not only lightweight but also tough and durable. Due to the fact that it has a water rating of 10 ATM, which is equivalent to 100 meters, you should definitely keep it on while you are traversing those water trails.
The price starts at HK $968 (which is equivalent to about $120 USD).
