What is a FITNESS bracelet?
Basically, a smartband, also known as the FITNESS bracelet, is
nothing more than a bracelet designed to track your daily physical activity.
In fact, once worn on the wrist, it records all your movements and
saves them and then displays them on the smartphone display
with the help of a dedicated APP that you can download for free
via your device’s store,
ANDROID and / or IOS.
In order to make the most of a FITNESS bracelet, commonly
known as smartband, it is used to connect to a mobile device
(SMARTPHONE), which has a large display and a more useful
memory to keep track of your movements and all the other
measurements.
Bluetooth technology is used as a means of communicating
information from the FITNESS bracelet to the smartphone and
vice versa
The connection to and from the smartphone takes place through
a dedicated APP, available on ANDROID and APPLE

USER MANUAL page 6
There are certainly various types of smartband, from the simplest
to just counting the steps, the most complex ones, who also
take into account burned calories, sleep cycles, read heart rate,
and receive notifications (calls, SMS and more) from your smartphone, below a few examples(Some features listed may not be
available on all commercial models):
•
Date and time
•
Count calories
•Pedometer
•Distance
•
Sleep monitoring
•
Heart rate
•
Blood pressure (not on BF100HR)
•
Blood oxygenation (not on BF100HR)
How it works
steps counter (Pedometer)
The operating principle of the pedometer is as follows:
The bracelet has incorporated a “gyroscope” inside, when the end
user wears the bracelet and starts to move, for example, the gyro
vibrates (unknowingly) and generates a waveguide.
Several movements will produce different waveforms.
An algorithm identifies a specific number by identifying and
recognizing the action that generates a fixed waveform;
USER MANUAL page 7
Chapter 1
Plus the sw is skilled in recognizing the difference between a
real step and for example lifting the arm or arm movement while
driving, and the more the result will be accurate
(NOTE: These devices are not used for professional sports
activities but must be considered useful for purely amateur
purposes)
Measurement Km routes:
The operating principle of Km reading is as follows:
The distance traveled is based on the number of steps.
The average pitch multiplied by number of steps = distance.
The user fill his or her personal data into the smartphone application such as sex, age, height, weight, and more
The more data entered are accurate, the more the algorithm
will be accurate and will give a better result.
This is because the average pitch is very different from person to
person, and the above data are identifying the difference.
The application’s sw performs a calculation and monitors the KM
paths on the bracelet screen if provided on the application itself.
USER MANUAL page 8

Heart Rate Measurement
Calculation of heart rate is taking into account the volume of arterial blood, taking advantage of the fact that an increase in heart
rate is associated with an increase in blood volume.
The technology used by optical sensors used in heart rate FITNESS
bracelets is photopletismography (PPG) that records changes in
the volume of blood through the skin’s light absorption variations.
In other words, light diffuses in tissues differently based on changes in hemodynamic fluxes.
The optical sensor consists of 2 LEDs that send light waves to the
body.
The FITNESS bracelet processor captures the portrayed light and
translates it into the heart rate of the person.
These values ​​are then sent to the bracelet display (if available )
and to the application installed on the smartphone, where realtime and / or statistical measurements will be highlighted during
the day
Algorithms can also give more information about consumed calories, blood pressure, and blood oxygenation.
NOTE: This device is not a medical device and can not be applied for any medical function, the read values ​​are considered
for purely amateur purposes
