The new Casio DWH5600 comes equipped with an optical sensor that uses LED light to measure changes in blood flow and track heart rate. This feature makes it easier for users to monitor their heart rate during workouts and ensure that they are getting the most out of their training sessions. In addition, the watch also includes an accelerometer that counts steps, providing a comprehensive overview of daily activity.
The watch uses Polar, which is an activity analyzer for sleep, breathing, and blood-oxygen levels. You connect the phone to the app via Bluetooth.
The watch itself is the standard 5600 case shape but the whole thing is built out of bio-based resins – read” friendlier plastic” – that is carbon fiber-reinforced.
It’s a solid, great piece for folks looking for a lower-cost alternative to Fitbits and Apple Watches, and at $299 it’s definitely at the right price point. You can pre-order it on Casio’s site today and it ships on May 19.
