Smart Watches

The smart watch has quickly evolved to become a regular strap on for many of those who are enthused about digital solutions. While they are yet to catch on with the larger population like smartphones have, smart watches are slowly getting there. The increase in the number of smart watch models in the market and the quick uptake of these models by the populace is an indicator that people are warming up to the idea of relying on smart watches for quick tasks and getting updates. And today’s smart watch is a major improvement from the first smart watch ever designed. It offers more features, has more capabilities, and looks sleeker and better, of course while retaining its primary task, which is to tell the time.

Most smart watches are designed to work closely with smartphones; they do more when paired with a smartphone. But there are also a few independent models which are designed to run on their own and work just as well without a smartphone connection. Such smart watches have their own connectivity and are independently used like one would use any smartphone – to make, receive or reject calls; receive and reply to emails, messages and IM chats; check the weather report, read news, create or add events to the calendar, and more.

When paired with your smartphone, the smart watches use the phone’s connectivity to log alerts for incoming messages or emails, calls, social media updates, launch apps, search the web, and the like. Load Wi-Fi to the watch and you’ll be able to use it like a phone even when you don’t have your smartphone nearby. For people who are constantly on the go, one of the biggest attractions of the smart watch is its hands free capability. In hands free mode and with the help of voice command, smart watches can be used to make calls, send dictated text messages to friends, set reminders, get directions to a specific location, or give answers to questions asked to the watch.

Because smart watches come loaded with several GBs of memory, it is possible to download apps onto the watch, and save music and other files. Pick a smart watch from the different types now available in the market, depending on what your primary requirements are. If you want the watch to help your staying fit and healthy strategy, you’ll need one of the watches with a built-in heart rate monitor, GPS, pace reader, activity tracker with distance monitoring, sleep tracker, and calorie tracker offering full stats on calorie intake, calories burned and target zones. Tech addicts will appreciate smart watches that can do everything. For this group, the more features it has, the better, for example, a watch with NFC technology to help in paying bills, placing orders, buying stuff, body stat readers, barometers, and more.

The wrist watch has made a major comeback, in the form of smart watches. Stay up to date with the latest happenings, get social media updates and notifications, see how well your body is doing on the health front, stay connected to friends and family, all via the smart watch on your wrist.
