Our Mini Guide To Smartwatches
With so many different styles, features and benefits out there, how do you pick the right one for you? Our mini guide is here to help you be smart with your choice.
Coming in a range of different styles to suit all tastes, smartwatches are used as a fashion statement just as much as a functional piece of technology. Fashion brands like Michael Kors and Fossil are perfect for the style-savvy wanting the latest technology, and Swiss brands like TAG Heuer and Breitling are for those who want to keep the look and feel of a traditional timepiece whilst accessing smart features.
Once connected, your smartwatch allows you to view notifications such as texts, calls, emails and social media updates directly on your wrist. The idea is that you regain full control of your notifications. Turn on those you want to see and turn off those you don’t, so you’re only tuning into the important ones.
Perfect for the fitness fanatic, smartwatches provide the all-in-one answer for those looking for a new watch and a fitness tracker. Whatever smartwatch you go for, each will have its own benefits when it comes to tracking your daily activities and managing your workout goals.
Connectivity & Compatibility
You will probably need to purchase a smartwatch that works with your current smartphone. Android Wear is the most popular operating system, and will work with most Android phones. Some Android Wear watches will work with an iPhone, but many features aren’t available when linked to iOS devices. Check whether your smartphone is compatible before buying!
These are the applications that your watch can run, and they work in a very similar way to your smartphones. Typical apps include weather updates, voice controls, navigation maps, reminders, games, fitness tracking and productivity tools. You can also download apps that allow you to customise your watch face for interchangeable style.
With the need to charge your smartwatch quite often, brands have been working hard to make this as painless as possible. Many smartwatches come with wireless chargers so there’s no need to plug in. Quick, simple and effortless! Smartwatches like the Breitling Exospace B55 Connected have a much longer battery life due to not having a power-hungry LCD touchscreen.
