    Does it start monitoring heart rate as soon as you put it on, and does it monitor continuously, without needing to do anything special?

    Have you reviewed any other smart watch that does continuous heart rate monitoring?

      Yes. It does. But in case of steps, it maybe recorded as distance I think.
