Because I don’t like the feeling of wearing a bracelet or watch, I haven’t experienced wearing a watch or smart bracelet for a long time. I accidentally saw the introduction of the Willful brand Y2 smart bracelet on the Internet. I actually have blood pressure, blood oxygen detection, etc. Nearly 20 functions have subverted my understanding of the functions of smart bracelets a long time ago and aroused my curiosity.

I couldn't help but place an order and bought a standard version of the black Y2 (with a chest patch set + real-time blood pressure and heart rate monitoring), and actually experienced it.

Packaging

This Y2 smart bracelet from Willful is packaged in a white carton, with only a golden “Willful” logo on the front of the box, no other decorations, and an extremely simple appearance.

The interior is filled with delicate soft foam, the wristband support and card position are firm, and the protection is in place, which can definitely effectively resist the violent sorting in transportation.

The watch also comes with two electrode adapter plugs and two electrode pads, which are used to monitor the ECG on the chest, and a simple manual. Didn’t see any chargers and charging cables, a bit strange, right?

The Y2 bracelet has a moderate size, exquisite workmanship, and a more atmospheric look and feel, especially the black curved panel that adds a lot to the bracelet. The rounded appearance, without a trace of edges and corners, also prevents some bracelets from hanging clothes, especially sweaters, which affect the wearing and taking off.
