Screen Size & Type

Having the right type of screen type and size is essential for you to fully enjoy the exceptional features of your fashionable wearable. For it is only through this tiny part of the watch that you are going to engage with, it’s imperative to have a decent understanding of the types before making a purchase.

We will talk about two of the main types of displays - AMOLED & LCD. Both come with their own set of pros and cons:

 

AMOLED: These types of displays offer the most vivid colors with amazing contrast ratios (distance in color from darkest to lightest). Because the display can individually light up pixels, and likewise leave some pixels turned off entirely, this means the screen can easily achieve power efficiency that is rarely seen on smartphone displays, leading to better battery life.

 

But AMOLED display is also more vulnerable to damage. Much like an old string of Christmas lights, if a single pixel is damaged, it can cause the entire screen to stop displaying altogether. There is also a higher chance of a burn-in happening here as over time the pixels can get “stuck” showing a specific image or color.

 

LCD: This type of display is way easier to read in a bright light. LCD screens display colors that more accurately reflect those of objects here in the real world versus through a viewfinder. However, LCDs cannot achieve deep blacks – The presence of an always on backlight to illuminate a screen regardless of how much of the screen is black means that it will never get as dark as an AMOLED screen can. Additionally, because the LCD also requires a backlight behind it, the screen will always take up more internal volume of a phone, limiting how thin and light designs can be.

 

Water Resistance

Water is one of the biggest enemies of any gadget. When it comes to watches, they are generally at a high risk of getting damaged due to their constant presence on our wrist! That’s why, today most of the smartwatches come with some sort of water resistance.

 

Water resistance is measured by Ingress Protection / International Protection (IP) or atmosphere (ATM) ratings. Let’s know about them in detail:

 

IP Rating: The IP rating is defined as the water and dust resistance for electronics. A rating of IP followed by X and a number means the item has been tested in water only. IP followed by two numbers means testing has been completed for dust/dirt resistance (first number) and water resistance (second number).

 

ATM Rating: These are the measurements used by the watch industry to denote the amount of pressure a watch can withstand. This is not the depth to which the watch can be worn. ATM stands for atmosphere. 1 atmosphere is equal to about 10 meters or roughly 30 feet.

 

Battery Life & Charging

Just like your smartphone, your smart wearables like the smartwatch run on a rechargeable battery. On an average, a smart bracelet like this can last up to 7-10 days on normal usage and offer you a standby of up to 30 days.

 

However, it is always advisable to think what will be your primary usage and the amount of battery it might consume before making a decision! Because you certainly don’t want a smartwatch that dies before you have even made it to home from work.
