Because besides Garmin’s smart watch, there are a variety of sports features. Supports exercise that covers every lifestyle. It also allows users to access comprehensive and accurate health information with 5 key health indicators available in Garmin. The new smartwatches are 1) Pulse Ox Blood Sensors – Blood Oxygen (SpO2) Monitor 2) Heart Rate Tracking – Heart Rate 3) REM Sleep Monitoring – Sleep Quality Tracking 4) Respiration Tracking – Respiration Rate 5) Stress Monitoring – Tracking stress levels. The data obtained from 5 health indicators It will help people to accurately understand their health trends and to immediately recognize the initial symptoms of physical abnormalities.”
Dr. Andrew An, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Radiology Harvard Medical School revealed that “COVID-19 patients Most of them show no obvious symptoms at first. even low blood oxygen levels A Garmin device that can monitor and monitor blood oxygen levels 24 hours a day is a great help in times of crisis like this. because in addition to the oxygen level in the blood Garmin can also monitor your heart rate throughout the day, even while you sleep, to determine sleep quality and heart rate variability. and various health indicators These also function very well. Being aware of these anomalies can also reduce the likelihood of spreading or spreading widely during the virus outbreak.”
Dr. Sira Kophaisan, internist, specialist in endocrine and metabolic diseases Ramathibodi Hospital “Having long-term health information is invaluable for making a diagnosis. Because when the doctor knows the patient’s normal health pattern It will be able to know immediately when the patient’s health began to deteriorate and how much has gone wrong. While the body does not show symptoms, but we can know first. That means we can shorten the healing time. and when the information reaches the doctor Doctors are also confident and can diagnose accurately for accurate and timely treatment. Because treating patients is the hardest thing. is the diagnosis If we know quickly The chances of a patient’s death will be less.”
“In addition, the use of health information can also help in planning health care to build good immunity over the long term. No one is 100% healthy even with a smart watch. But when there are health indicators on our wrists We will be able to know if our physical condition is developing in a good direction andsmart watchGarmin will track the following values: blood oxygen respiratory rate heart rate sleep quality monitoring stress level This is considered quite complete for primary health indicators. because when we use our daily life or exercise for a long time And health indicators show a slower resting heart rate. Sleep quality improved and stress levels decreased. We can assume that the lifestyle or exercise plan is at an appropriate level. Consider whether that kind of practice or daily life is too harmful to your health. If we know any of our systems are malfunctioning. By using a smart watch that supports a variety of sports or exercises, we can plan to restore that system through appropriate exercise methods,” added Dr. Sira.
5 Health indicators from Garmin smartwatches that are related to physical health include:
- Blood Oxygen (Pulse Ox Blood Sensors) – Blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) meter is related to cardiovascular and respiratory performance. Based on the reference of the World Health Organization (WHO) Pulse Oximetry Training Manual. People with healthy lungs are in a normal state. A healthy blood oxygen level should be between 95% – 100%, which is an important indicator that allows us to assume that the cardiovascular and respiratory systems are malfunctioning.
- Heart Rate Tracking – Heart rate can be an indicator when the body has a high fever. when the body temperature rises abnormally heart rate will increase In addition, the heart rate can also help indicate the intensity of exercise. So that we can choose exercises that are suitable for each age group.
- Sleep (REM Sleep Monitoring) – Quality sleep is one of the most important things for a healthy immune system. In addition to the feeling after waking up Having a device that monitors sleep quality that monitors blood oxygen levels. respiratory rate and tossing and turning during sleep continuously throughout the night This will allow us to obtain information to help verify it correctly. Your heart rate stays low and steady during deep sleep. In adults, deep sleep is usually between 15% – 25% of sleep, if lower than this it is likely that sleep efficiency is reduced.
Respiratory Tracking – A normal respiratory rate is 12 to 20 breaths per minute. A low respiratory rate generally indicates a healthy body condition. Proper breathing rates can help reduce stress, increase concentration, and improve sleep. It will help us improve breathing even more.
- Stress Level (Stress Monitoring) – Stress level detection with a reliable device uses data from heart rate variability to assess stress levels. If the data indicates that we have a stress rate of 51 – 100, the body is facing a high level of stress. This will affect the physical and mental condition. sleep state including everyday life May cause long-term health problems
“The 5 health indicators that are derived from a smart watch or smart wearable feature are not helpful in diagnosing any disease or physical condition. It is something that helps us know and understand health trends correctly. And can provide such information to a medical professional for diagnosis and in-depth health examination in order to provide the most accurate results of the examination. All 5 health indicators reflect that the human body is functioning. consistent and affecting each other Therefore, we should explore all 5 health indicators comprehensively and regularly. This leads to an accurate understanding of long-term health trends,” added Dr. Sira.
