Annet lost her hearing from the age of 21 due to a nervous disorder. As a helper at home, Annet uses a smartwatch, among other things. A smartwatch is a smart watch with many different functions. Annet: “I use a smartwatch as an alarm clock. It vibrates around my arm. Ideal, because I wake up quietly, on time and my hearing friend can sleep through my alarm clock if I have to get up early. I also use my smartwatch to receive notifications, such as incoming calls and appointment reminders.”
There are different smartwatches for sale with different functions. For example, smartwatches are available with which notifications can be received or an emergency message can be sent to an established body when you need urgent help. There are also smartwatches with which you can measure your heart rate and monitor sleep and physical activities.
