There are thousands of different kinds of ordinary, old fashioned wrist watches, but what do these watches do besides tell time and maybe date? As a utility, they do nothing for you that your mobile phone cannot do.
Not only will smart watches sit beautifully on your wrist, but they will also allow you to get notifications without having to take your phone out of your pocket. It is considered rude to interrupt someone by pulling your phone out and looking at it while somebody else is talking to you or if you're in the middle of a meeting.
In addition, you will also be able to add additional features as well as apps just like the ones made for smart phones. Your smart watch's usefulness will only grow overtime as the technology becomes more mature, and more development is completed.
We have set aside four different brands of smart watches we consider to be the best, so if you're interested in buying one, take your time and decide which one will suit you most after reading the following smart watch reviews.
This watch costs roughly around 200$ and when it comes to looks, it can easily go hand in hand with any ordinary wrist watch. When it comes to smart watches there is a great variety of style to usefulness ratio. A smart watch, in order to truly be a smart watch, must perform the things it's made for properly, otherwise it's just a junk on your hand and you should have bought an ordinary watch instead. When we go to another extreme, if you're a businessman or you simply want to look stylish, you won't like wearing some nerdy, ugly watch on your wrist. So, the best thing would be to find a golden middle ground and that is exactly what ZenWatch is. It's not the best smart watch when it comes to technology, but it surely is a watch you will be able to wear anywhere you go.
ZenWatch is well built, beautifully crafted, reasonably priced and it has interchangeable straps. The battery life is long enough to last you through the day, it allows quick access to notifications and some unique features in which Asus takes pride.
Some of these features are Heart Tracking and Mood Measurement, from which it got its name. Heart Tracking is pretty good feature for those who like to exercise and monitor their heart rate or if you're simply curious as to how your heart rate behaves in different situations.
ZenWatch, just like most other smart watches, activates with a flip of the wrist and it has two different kinds of using methods.
You can either use it by voice or touch screen, but the gimmick behind the watch is that it enables hands free control on many of its applications. The applications found most useful are Google maps and Google hangouts, but the hands-free calculator is also a lot of fun. You can reply to someone through a smart watch by simply speaking your reply to the watch. If you're looking to buy a smart watch, you should buy one which you will be comfortable wearing at all times and ZenWatch certainly meets the criteria.
Don't stop after only reading the ZenWatch review, make sure to read every other review before deciding which one will suit you the most.
First of all, there are three versions of the apple watch. Apple watch, Apple watch sport and Apple watch edition. All of these versions come in two different sizes which are 38 millimeters and 42 millimeters. The idea behind these two versions was probably to suit women and men accordingly, but most women will prefer the 42 millimeter one simply because the 38 is pretty small. The versions we've mentioned above are not different in any way when it comes to software, the only difference between the three are the materials from which they're made of and the bands.
The price of these three versions vary as well, the Apple watch stands at around 550 to 1100 dollars, the Apple watch sport cost roughly around 350 - 400 dollars and the Apple Watch Edition is a lot pricier than that. Apple Watch Edition varies from 10 thousand to 17 thousand dollars and it is in a league of its own. One of the best features of an Apple watch is that it's bands are easily interchangeable and you can buy different kinds of bands from apple. So how does an Apple watch work?
Well, basically you have the touch screen on the front and two physical buttons on the side. One of which is the digital crown. When you flip your wrist the main screen will appear with time and date among other things, but when you press the digital crown all your apps will appear. Apps look like some kind of cluster of applications and from that main menu you can access any one of them. But where do these apps come from?
Well, in order to arrange and download the apps, you will have to connect your Iphone with the watch. The apps on your watch are basically a counterpart of the apps on your Iphone. You can rearrange them and manage them however you like and all the changes you make on your phone will immediately take effect on your watch too.
When you flip your wrist and start the watch you can access all the notifications by simply sliding your finger downwards across the watch's screen. There you will be able to delete the notifications one by one, or simply delete all of them at once (Which is a very nice, time saving feature). By sliding your finger from the bottom to the top you will access the ''glances''. These glances can give you all kinds of information with a single swipe, among which you can access music control or even pin your phone if you lost it somewhere. The vibration motor in the watch is pretty good as well. It can be useful for all kinds of things, not only for notifications, but also for reminders of any kind.
Apple Watch has good battery life, it has one of the best gyroscopes which determines whether you're looking at it or not, it's great with notifications and it's very stylish and comfortable.
If you decide to buy apple watch, we would recommend going for Apple Watch or Apple Watch sport before thinking about the Edition, just to make sure that it's the brand you like the most.
You can modify your watch to alert you when to stand up and stretch to achieve your fitness goals, or simply to remind you about your daily water intake.
Samsung Gear 2 outside look has not changed so much but it has been slightly improved. Microphone and camera that were primarily placed on the wristband of Samsung Galaxy smartwatch, have been moved on the watch housing. The placement of these..
Apple Watch is one of the greatest inventions nowadays, and it quickly became popular all around the World. Apple Watch significantly improved everyday life, now you do not have to spend hours looking for your phone since you..
Samsung is, of course, not falling behind its competitors in either technology or creativity. They had some problems with their original watch but with the new Samsung Gear 2 they are back at it again and slowly but surely climbing to the top. In order to rectify their previous mistakes they had to start from the beginning, which is hardware. The new hardware is a lot more sophisticated and many improvements have been made in order to really satisfy the customers. The thing that hasn't changed is that it's still comprised of metal on both the face and the clasp which gives the watch its premium look and feel. The texture black bands are now changeable where on the original watch they were not.
The whole design is a lot smaller and compact now, the watch itself is lighter and they've done a much better job at concealing the watch's actual hardware which makes it look a lot more like a normal watch. The main changes in hardware involve the camera and the speaker.
On the previous model the camera was on the band where now it's actually hidden in the watch itself and the speaker is not visible on the outside of the metal clasp but rather hidden behind it, plus, the home button has been moved to the front of the watch.
If you've had problems with the charger on the previous Samsung's watch, you will be happy to see that they've made modifications on this aspect as well. It's not bulky and awkward to use anymore, but a rather convenient, small charging accessory.
The display itself hasn't changed much compared to the previous watch. It's still very bright and vivid and you won't have any problems using it outdoors even when the sun is at its brightest. Most people don't care yet about the specs of the watch, but since we're comparing it to a previous version, we have to say that it's slightly improved. It has 1 GHz dual core processor with 512Mb of Ram and internal storage of 4Gb. The performance of the watch itself is very smooth and responsive and it rarely ever happens that you have to repeat the action twice because the watch hasn't registered it.
If you hate having to charge your watch every single day than Samsung gear 2 is the right one for you. If you like fitness, then all the more reason to buy Samsung gear 2. They have really been pushing fitness for the last year or so and besides the heart rate monitor the watch has built in app for exercise measuring and how many calories you've burned.
