Smart watches are very much essential because it notifies you about different tasks. Smartwatches provide you built-in Fitness features such as heart bit sensor and GPS sensor. Smart watches can also be connected with your smartphones and notify you about call and messages if your phone is silent or you are in a meeting. So how can you decide which smartwatch is better suitable for you? Here I am telling you about the specifications and features that must be checked before purchasing a smartwatch.
Tips For How to Buy the best smartwatch
• Check The Device Compatibility
The main thing that you should check before purchasing either your device is compatible with your watch or not. For example, Apple Smart Watches only work with I Phones, But if you have an Android phone then what would you do? You won’t have any choice after purchasing. So please make sure that the smartwatch which you are going to purchase is compatible with your phone or not?
If you are purchasing Samsung’s Gear S3 and Gear Sport smartwatch then these are compatible with Android and I Phone, But they are more compatible with Android and especially with Samsung mobiles. The Fitbit Versa smartwatch is compatible with both Android and I Phones. If you are going for Google’s wear OS smartwatch then first you have to check your device is compatible with Wear OS or not. You can check it from http://g.co/WearCheck.
• Check the display
Approx all the smartwatches come with a colorful LCD display or AMOLED display. These displays provide you a better quality view of Photos, Apps and other contents. Though color display takes more power the demand for color display smartwatch is high in the market. As it takes more power so it usually turns off their screen while they are asleep. So if you want to see the time then you have to awaken the smartwatch. However, it is considered that LCD displays are thicker than OLED display.
• What interface do you prefer? Button or Touch
It depends on you what would you prefer- Button or Touch screen. But nowadays touch screen smartwatches are more popular as compared to Button smartwatches. But there is a disadvantage with Touch screen smartwatch- The icons are very smaller in size that sometimes irritates us. Apple Smartwatch provides both a touch screen and button system.
• What about Fitness features
Most of the smartphones give you the feature of activity tracking. If you want to get notification about your workout then you can take Fitbit Versa and Garmin Vivoactive 3. Both are able to give you a notification about your workout. The Versa is very much convenient for female health notification like periods and recording the other symptoms.
There are different designs available in the market in different brands. But according to my opinion, you should first think about another feature like OS compatibility, Fitness feature and at last, you can look towards the design.
• Notification and Alerts
Till now most of the smartwatches are able to give notifications of phone calls, Messages, and e-mail. But now the user wants more notification regarding the social networking sites. The format of the notification pattern is different in different smartwatches. Some of the smartphones give the notification by swiping up to down and some of the smartphones give notifications by swiping down to up. Some of the smartphones have an individual app to categorize notification. So you can purchase it as per your choice.
• Features like Calling and Mobile Payments
Most of the user want to make a call from their wrist. The Apple Watch series 3 and Gear S3 frontier have built-in LTE( Long term evolution) feature. By the help of this, you can leave your mobile phone at home and call with your smartwatch outside the home. But the problem is that you have to pay separate data charges for these features.
• Charging and Battery life
Most of the smartphones run 1to 2 days after charging. But if you are using voice call through your smartphone then it will run only 18-20 hours. The Apple smartwatch can run for 18 hours after a full charge.
Most of the people want to know about the smartwatch review of battery life. But I think you should ask from a regular user of a smartwatch about the battery life instead of reading review. They will tell you the actual fact.
