Amazfit Product Features
Now that you've had your Amazfit for a few days, you've probably started using it to track your sleep and steps. But did you know that you could customize your step goals, set alarms, and set up call notifications with it? In this article, we explain a few of the Amazfit features that you may not yet have stumbled upon.
Now that you've been able to use Amazfit to track your steps and sleep, have you wondered about other features available on our tracker? Amazfit is able to not only track steps and sleep but also notify you of incoming calls and alarms. In this post, we'll go over a few extra features in Amazfit's ceramic tracker technology that you might not be aware of.
SETTING STEP GOALS
We like to start you off at 10,000 steps - this is generally the equivalent of 30 minutes of active exercise. But if you're coming back from an injury, training for a race, or just feeling like the 10,000 number is either slightly out of reach or just a little too easy to reach, we encourage you to set your own step goal!
To customize your step goal in our iOS app, tap into the menu icon at the top left of the main screen. Then tap into SETTINGS, and under Daily Goal, scroll up or down until you've found your desired step goal.
To customize your step goal in our Android app, tap the user icon in the upper left hand corner. Select My Goal. Here, you can toggle between a daily calorie burn goal or a daily step goal.
Once you've set up your new step goal, try using this step goal for a few days. If you're consistently hovering within reach of this new step goal, you've found your ideal goal! If this goal is still just a little too low or high for you, continue adjusting your step goals every few days until you find that perfect sweet spot.
Did you know that Amazfit can alert you of incoming calls with a gentle vibration? This way, whether it's your daughter who you've finally put to bed or a meeting at work, you can set your phone on silent and be discreetly notified of incoming calls.
To set up call notifications on the iOS app, tap into the menu icon in the main screen. Tap into SETTINGS from there, and then toggle the third item down, Phone Call Notification. Once this is toggled on (it should appear green), your Amazfit will start vibrating when you receive calls.
To set up call notifications on our Android app, tap the device icon in the upper right hand corner of the main screen. Tap on Call Notifications, and swipe right to enable call notifications.
Once you've set up call notifications on Amazfit, you can now set your phone down and not have to be worried that you're missing a call. Whether your phone is on the kitchen counter while you're preparing breakfast, in your bag, or set on silent, Amazfit's phone call notifications can free up your hands and mind to be more present in your every day life.
Amazfit also allows you to set alarms at custom times. These alarms can be useful as a gentle way of waking up in the morning, or as reminders throughout the day.
To set an alarm, tap the device icon in the upper right hand corner of the main screen. Tap on Alarm, and then select your desired alarm times. To disable an alarm, tap on the desired alarm and swipe left.
Once you've set up your alarm notifications, be sure to repeat them as you need! You can set them up to occur daily or weekly - so for example, if you need to pick up the dry cleaning every Monday at five, or if you need a reminder in the middle of each work day to take a fifteen minute break and go for a walk, you can set these reminders up on your Amazfit.
