Is a Smartwatch really worth it?
Is a Smartwatch really worth it?

Some may think that nowadays, with smartphones and digital advances, wristwatches are becoming somewhat less relevant. They often ask if it is necessary to have a separate device to tell you the time when your phone does that just fine? I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard people say that smartwatches are unnecessary. However, those who think like that simply do not understand what a smartwatch can do.

 

Similarly, as phones have evolved and added functionality, so have smartwatches, to the point where they are now smartwatches that match smartphones in terms of intelligence. The technology companies only began releasing smartwatches with smartphone-like features in the 2010s, even though digital watches have existed for decades.

When discussing what a smartwatch is, as well as what the differences between a smartwatch and a classic watch are, we need to consider its features. Whether used daily or for a specific purpose (such as a sport), most smartwatches come with a few standard features:

 

  • Notifications  Similar to smartphones, smartwatches give you the option of receiving and reading notifications directly from your wrist. The types of notifications vary; some devices paired to a smartphone may just replicate the smartphone's notifications on your wrist, whereas other smartwatches may show notifications that only a wearable device can offer. Of course, there are smart watches that do both!

 

  • Apps  Similar to smartphones, smartwatches give you the option of receiving and reading notifications directly from your wrist. The types of notifications vary; some devices paired to a smartphone may just replicate the smartphone's notifications on your wrist, whereas other smartwatches may show notifications that only a wearable device can offer. Of course, there are smart watches that do both!

 

  • Media managementThe majority of smartwatches can control the playback of media when paired with your smartphone. You can use your smartwatch to control the volume and the song when you listen to music.

 

  • Fitness tracking Most smartwatches provide a heart rate monitor, a pedometer, activity tracking, and many more functions alike. Depending on the smartwatch that you choose, the fitness functions and features may be just general information guiding you towards a healthier lifestyle or they may be detailed and specific, giving you all the specifics about your progress as an athlete.

  • Good battery lifeThe battery life depends on the smartwatch you use and the purpose for which you use it. Today's smartwatches have batteries that last for a full day and a bit more, with normal usage. However, some options can last for multiple days or even a week.

 

It's probably obvious to you that your smartphone and a smartwatch are similar, isn't it? Are you still wondering why you would need or want a smartwatch if you already own a smartphone? Well, the answer is quite simple, but not necessarily short.

 

For example, even though smartphones have become very important in our lives, you still need at least one hand free to hold and use them. Your smartwatch is more accessible. Instead of reaching into your pocket or bag, unlocking the phone, etc., with a smartwatch, you have easy access to all your notifications and media on your arm.

 

Generally, smartwatches offer a multitude of useful features that aim to assist you in your daily life and track your sports activities. In my experience, there is nothing better than a smartwatch to keep you "connected" if you love mobility and ease of use.
