ORTSO: Not just a smartwatch or a fitness tracker, but both with a luxury design
by Shomaila Issam
Whether it’s a fitness band that promises the most accurate biometric readings or a smart watch that claims it will make reading notifications easier, you can’t go wrong with opting for a wearable to make life much easier. However, it’s highly unlikely that you will wear both, at least at the same time and chances are that both won’t have the classic luxury look that makes a watch suitable for a formal occasion or work. This is where ORTSO watches come in with their traditional and stylish designs that make them look good in any setting.
ORTSO watches aren’t just about the aesthetics, however – keep reading to find out the benefits they have to offer.
- Elegant designs
ORTSO watches make an ideal gift for any lover of gadgets. The designs are simple yet sophisticated and the watches are very well made with a scratch resistant, glare proof sapphire crystal face, allowing users to truly enjoy having an ORTSO watch on – even if it is for the looks alone. Chances are you’ll get compliments even before telling people it doubles as a fitness and smart watch.
- Easy to use
Unlike most smart watches, ORTSO doesn’t come with a complicated touchscreen. In fact, it features only 4 buttons that are so easy to use that after some time, you’ll be able to control the watch without even looking at it. Therefore, not only is it convenient, it’s time-saving too, even for the least tech-savvy users.
- Tracks health and fitness-related activity
Unless you want to constantly switch between your regular work watch, smartwatch and fitness tracker, you’ll want a watch that does it all. Although ORTSO watches have the appearance of traditional luxury watches, they have the functionality of a smartwatch and a fitness tracker.
Developed by a team of top experts, the fitness functions of ORTSO watches are top-notch, tried and tested. ORTSO watches can track your number of steps, walking/running distance and speed. They can even track the number of reps you make during weight training via the motion sensor unit included in each watch. All tracking information can be seen on the top LCD window as simplified text information. For comprehensive charts and more detailed information, you can always use the ORTSO app on your phone.
- Controls music
What’s a workout without some good music? ORTSO watches allow you to control the music on your phone and they track your fitness and training at the same time too. The visual sound volume digital display can be found on the top smart information window.
- Tracks sleep
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), getting the recommended amount of sleep per night (7.5 to 9 hours) reduces your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart problems and motor vehicle accidents and it improves concentration, memory, reaction time, mood and productivity at work and school. Getting enough sleep also boosts immune system health and keeps colds and infections at bay. In short, getting enough sleep is linked to better health and happiness.
However, it’s not only the length of sleep, but the quality of sleep that matters too. ORTSO watches have sleep monitoring systems which show information in a chart format on the ORTSO app in your phone. The sleep tracker monitors your sleep length, quality and consistency, which helps you identify any problems in your sleep and fix them, if needed.
- No charging required
Nobody wishes to own a device with poor battery life however, most smartwatches are likely to last for only up to a day. Just like your phone, you’ll have to charge a smartwatch overnight. This means that even if a watch has a sleep monitoring system, it’s going to be useless because the watch is going to be sitting on the desk getting recharged in the night.
ORTSO watches are different because they do not require any charging and can run up to 7 months on a fitted internal battery. Therefore, you don’t have to remind yourself to charge your watch every night and carry a charger everywhere you go.
- Stop watch
ORTSO watches can also be doubled as stopwatches that are straightforward and easy to use. The stopwatch timing can be found displayed on the top LCD window.
- Minimum 100M/330FT water resistance
Most smartwatches are only splash-proof at best, which means taking them swimming or even into the shower can end up being quite an expensive mess. ORTSO watches are 100M/330 FT water resistant, which means forgetting to take them off before you get into a shower won’t destroy your watch’s functionality. You can even take the watch swimming and use it as a stopwatch to evaluate your progress.
There’s also a line of ORTSO watches that are specifically “water-oriented” and designed for diving. The ORSTO Diver watch is 200M/660FT water resistant, making an excellent watch for swimmers, divers and all the hydrophilics out there.
- Changeable wrist straps
Just when you thought that the benefits of ORTSO watches related to their looks came to an end, there’s more. All ORTSO watches come with 200mm wrist straps that can be easily changed to suit your style preference, usage and occasion. You don’t have to wear the rubber that’s more suitable for diving to work as well. You can conveniently switch to leather or metal when desired. Similarly you can choose fabric straps for sports and workouts because they’re more comfortable and are breathable, making them fit for physical activity.
