Which wearable is best? Expert tech reviewer Des Yap tests Apple, Garmin, Oura, Whoop
Apple just launched three new watches with measurements for sleep cycles, HRV, blood oxygen levels, and many other things, and Des Yap of the DesFit YouTube Channel was in California for Apple’s presentation. After testing and posting reviews on all three, Des came and joined Frank and Ben for a chat about what's new and interesting with wearables.
Des specializes in wearable technology like smart watches and fitness and recovery trackers.
