Haylou S8: New smartwatch with AMOLED and telephony functions also able to measure blood pressure
Haylou is offering a new smartwatch, the Haylou Watch S8, which has a fairly large AMOLED with a screen diagonal of 1.96 inches - the resolution of 410 x 502 promises a sharp display. As usual, it is a touchscreen, but operation is not limited to this. There is not only a button on the right-hand side, but also a rotating crown. Here, the design is reminiscent of the Apple Watch Pro.
According to Haylou, a special Bluetooth chip is used for a more stable connection. This is particularly relevant when using the watch as a Bluetooth hands-free device. Telephone calls can also be initiated on the watch, allowing contacts to be called and phone numbers to be entered. This means that smart assistants can also be used on the wrist via a smartphone.
In terms of monitoring vital data, the Haylou S8 offers standard features that can now also be found in affordable smartwatches, namely the possibility of measuring both the heart rate and blood oxygen saturation. The measurement of blood pressure is also advertised, but unlike the corresponding function of the Samsung smartwatches, this is unlikely to be precise.
The battery life, under typical use, is estimated at eight days, thanks to the 270 mAh battery. The watch, which weighs 58.5 grams, is available directly from the manufacturer and via direct import at a price of around USD 35. Other Haylou smartwatches are also available via Amazon.
