The benefits of a smartwatch
So, what can a smartwatch do to a smartphone that makes it a worthwhile investment? Let’s take a look at some of the major smartwatch applications that could convince you to take the plunge.
1. A smartwatch doesn’t just tell you what time it is
Many people prefer to wear a watch. The goal is either functional (simply indicating the time) or because it is fashionable. A good watch looks great on someone’s wrist. But watches are becoming less and less popular with the arrival of the smartphone. Who should buy a watch if their phone tells the time, has a calendar, and has an alarm? This is a valid point that explains the declining sales of watches in recent years.
But smartwatches resist this trend because they offer something different. They offer all these basic watch functions, but they also do things that smartphones cannot. In the course of this article, we’ll explain exactly what these things are.
2. Smartwatches work like a fitness tracker
Many smartwatches have fitness tracking as a core feature. It will help you track and improve your fitness goals. So if you ever think about getting a fitness tracker or a pedometer, you can replace it with a good smart watch.
What exactly can a smartwatch do? It can count steps, distance, calories, heart rate, heart rate, sleep, and some even go further to calculate other important metrics you may need. We recently reviewed the LQM EX1 Fitness Tracker and I’m sure a good smartwatch can offer you the same.
Garmin watches are particularly good exercise machines, but most of them now offer fitness tracking features because the technology is much cheaper to manufacture than it ever was. There are now even models that are completely waterproof and perfect for swimmers. Take a look at the watches men from Excluso whether there is a suitable smartwatch or luxury watch.
3. You are even connected while performing activities
If you’re running, cycling, swimming, or doing some other form of exercise, you may want to take a look at your messages, calls, or notifications. Sometimes it’s not possible to have a phone with you during those activities, and it’s just inconvenient and annoying if you do. This is where a smartwatch gets really useful.
Are you underwater? No problem at all! The Apple Watch Series 4 has a water resistance of 50 meters under water. Take a break while swimming to check your messages without leaving the pool.
4. All entertainment is on your wrist
Let’s say you’re walking and all of a sudden you want to watch a YouTube video that your friend keeps talking about. You are just one or two clicks away from YouTube playback on your watch.
You can watch videos and play music on the go. It will never replace the quality of your phone’s big screen, but for those quick moments, the ease of use is unbeatable. The latest models such as the Tommy watches even have the option to store music that can then be played completely wirelessly via your Bluetooth headphones.
Hopefully this has convinced you enough to buy a smartwatch for your health or opt for a smart watch instead of a standard watch
