The Apple Watch is here, but despite the company's best efforts, some individuals remain sceptical of the wearable concept.
For months, we've been evaluating the Sony Smartwatch 3, one of the best Android Wear devices available. Smartwatches can seem perplexing and redundant at first, but after some time with them, the user and the device begin to function in tandem. Most buyers, unfortunately for smartwatch producers, do not have the ability to sample before they buy. We're here to help with a number of practical, real-world advantages that should sway even the most adamant wristwatch sceptics.
Messages that educate
According to us, the primary reason you'd buy a smartwatch is for notifications. It's invaluable to have them transmitted to your wrist and be able to identify their relevance without having to take your phone out of your pocket or purse. It makes your life easier and saves you time, which is valuable. It is considered impolite to check your phone. A brief peek at your wrist can be used instead, which is faster, simpler, and more inconspicuous.
The Internet of Things in Industry
I can manage the volume of my Sonos sound system and turn on and off my Hue lights with a few taps on my wrist. It's quicker and easier than getting a phone, and Internet of Things and 'Smart Home' technologies will only improve.
During Apple's 'Spring Forward' event, Tim Cook demonstrated how the Apple Watch may be used to get through airport security by presenting the user's boarding card right on the watch screen. Anything that makes the airport security process easier is a good thing.
Calling people back
Different smartwatches handle answering calls in different ways. The Sony Smartwatch 3, for example, allows users to accept and decline calls using the watch's speaker and microphone (or headphones, if plugged in) while continuing the conversation on the phone's speaker and microphone (or headphones, if plugged in). When you're walking around with headphones on or driving and your smartphone isn't readily available, this is useful.
Others, like the Apple Watch, allow users to respond to and carry on conversations right from their wrist (the phone may remain in your bag). It's not the most efficient approach to answer every call, but it's handy for quick talks when you can't reach your phone.
Physical fitness is important.
I've owned a Fitbit, wore it for a few weeks, and then forgotten about it, which is a typical problem with fitness trackers. The majority of smartwatches can run fitness apps and can count steps. Smartwatches have the advantage of connecting consumers to other important functions, making them less likely to be overlooked.Music
You can wander around town with your phone in your pocket listening to music, and if a song you don't like comes on, simply push the 'next' button on your smartwatch. You can also pause the music, adjust the volume, or move on to the next track. It may appear tiny, yet it improves music listening greatly.
The battery life is eight hours.
One of the largest drags on your phone's battery life is the huge, high-resolution display; because a wristwatch minimises the amount of time that enormous screen has to be on, it can have a considerable influence on battery life. And, before you worry that being connected to a wearable all day would drain the battery, keep in mind that most of them use power-efficient Bluetooth 4.0.
It's astonishing how much fun it is to be able to change your watch face every day; on weekends, I can wear a dancing Micky Mouse on my wrist, but at my Monday morning office meeting, I can put on a more professional watch face. You may save money on a ladies smartwatch by using coupons and deals. Websites like CouponsABC and Askmeoffers are two places where you can get free codes to utilise.
Have you ever been in a sketchy part of town late at night and been hesitant to use your £600 smartphone? A smartwatch, on the other hand, is far more discreet (as long as you don't flaunt your £8000 Apple smart Watch).
How to Get Around
Finally, a smartwatch makes navigating considerably easier, making it much easier to move about an unknown place. Your wrist receives instructions indicating when and where you should turn next.
While walking around with your phone in your hand, the chances of that glass and aluminium infant meeting with the cold, hard concrete rise. Another key benefit of wearables is that they lessen the chances of this occurring.
Of course, the biggest argument against smartwatches is that they can do everything a smartphone can, which is true, but they're not meant to replace your phone; rather, they're meant to compliment it and make your life easier.
