How to Setup Smartwatch with Fitpro App

In more recent times wearable technology, such as smartwatches, has become increasingly popular.

These devices record and monitor data from your fitness activities such as; distance covered while running or walking, calories, blood pressure and heart rate.

Although there are different types of fitness trackers available, this method will work for most of the smartwatch brands on the market including the D13 Smart bracelet, FitMe watches, and Xiaomi Mi band fitness trackers.

These smart devices will measure running, walking distances, situp count, skipping count, calories burnt and also monitor blood pressure and heart rate.
