Fitness and Heart-Rate Tracking

Sony SmartBand 2 does just what you would expect a fitness tracker to do – it monitors your movements and activities. With the aid of inbuilt sensors, it tracks everything you do, be it walking, running, swimming and even your sleep.

The integrated heart-rate monitor measures your pulse and stress levels in the course of your daily activities, based on heart rate variability (HRV). This helps to determine what activities raise your heart rate and the ones that return it to normal level, thus giving you insights into those things that could cause you health issues.

Sony provides the SmartBand 2 with an app called Lifelog, which keeps a record of your activities, heart rate and stress levels, amongst others, over time, to help you strike a balance in your life.
