DESIGNED FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE

The stunning 1.3” always-on AMOLED display brings your watch to life, even under bright sunlight.

PULSE OX

For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor2 uses light beams at your wrist to estimate how well your body is absorbing oxygen.

WRIST-BASED HEART RATE

The watch constantly samples your heart rate3 and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities — even while swimming.

RESPIRATION TRACKING

See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.

STRESS TRACKING

Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day.

SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING

Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights.

BODY BATTERY ENERGY MONITORING

Optimize your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.

HYDRATION TRACKING

Log your daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. You can even have an auto goal for hydration that adjusts based on how much you sweat during activities.

 

 

Gauge your performance.

This watch works with the Surfline widget to give you tides, wave height, wind and surf rating for the five nearest locations and also works with the Surfline Sessions app to create videos of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline camera.

Navigate wherever your adventures take you.
