Simplifying a jargon

In other words, it’s Bluetooth® communication. It helps a watch to link with a mobile phone running an app that gives you access to a watch’s various functions and settings. You don’t need to fumble with the buttons and crowns in the conventional way anymore. This comes as a great aid to mountain climbers, travelers, hikers, fishers, campers and a host others into outdoor activities.

Some advantages that you get

  • Automatic time adjustments: Both home time and world time; occurs 4 times a day, everyday; as per the time conveyed by your carrier. Entering a different time zone before schedule requires manual effort unless accompanied with GPS, though. DST (daylight saving time) is taken into account automatically irrespective of GPS.
  • Automatic Calendar: Works the same way as automatic time adjustments.
  • Location indicator: To show direction and distance to destination through smart phone app. Sometimes, this can also be used as a device tracker.
  • Activity tracker: Step counts, heart rate, calories burned, depth/altitude data, route logs. The last two, however; require sensors. For example, the Casio PROTREK Quad Sensor.

Benefits of mobile link

  • A functionality boost using a two in one gadget that saves your money, time and efforts.
  • Gives access to automated features to enhance a device’s user friendliness.
