We live in the digital age where you can scout for a great place to dine in 15 minutes before you leave work or your house. A world and in time where whatever questions you have in mind, you can look up in the web or if you have anything in mind, you can share in a few taps.
As convenient as smartphones are and all the other technology made available to us today, they can still a little too distracting for some people, especially with smartphones.
Glancing on the screen every so often while driving, walking, or any other activity, can be distracting and a big productivity killer. This is one of the factors that make smartwatches an ultimate anti-distracting, convenient gadget.
More than than that, there are a handful more features these timepieces carry such as fitness tracker, GPS, and the works. It’s no surprise that the market is crowded and there are plenty of smartwatches you can choose from. Depending on the feature you deem fit for you, the brand, price tag, and other considerations, we’re here to help you choose the perfect smartwatch available in the market.
1. Apple Watch 2
With plenty of iPhone users in the market, Apple Watch 2 easily swayed a number of users to purchase the smartwatch. Packing in the little device with a number of awesome features such as water-resistant feature, GPS, runs watchOS 3 software, and more. Also, the sleek design alone will make you want to save up for it (it’s expensive, like most Apple products). But it’s one of the best ones in the market as for now.
2. Huawei Watch 2 Classic
The Classic is, from the title itself, the classier version between the two released Huawei Watch 2 models. Like most smartwatches, the model boasts a GPS, water and dust resistance feature, NFC chips, a heart rate sensor, and a lot more.
The major difference, though, between the two models is that the Classic lacks what the Standard have, LTE. It’s a big step back but with the Classic’s premium design that’s good for the unisex, a compromise would be easy.
3. Samsung Gear 2
Samsung, like Apple and any other competitors, always put their best foot forward and put a good show. This goes the same for their techy-timepieces. This watch could be the best bet for Android users.
Aside from its really classy and sleek body, it dons a rotating bezel utilized for navigating the UI, this and along with other standard smartwatch features sells it.
4. Fitbit Blaze
This one may lack standard smartwatch features like what the Apple watch or Samsung Gear 2 have. However, it’s still a pretty functional, fitness tracking timepiece nonetheless. In addition to that, the Fitbit can answer or reject calls, has a battery-friendly GPS, music control, on-screen workouts, smartphone notifications, and the likes. It’s the perfect smartwatch for the fitness junkie.
5. Fossil Q Series
Fossil is a traditional watchmaker, but it hasn’t been shy at all with supporting the world of Android Wear. The company offers several different smartwatches, including the Fossil Q Marshal, Wander, and Founder. Soon, the company will also be offering the Q Venture and Q Explorist, as well as the limited edition Q x Cory Richards.
All of these watches offer somewhat similar designs, but feature different price points depending on the model. Older generations offer the Snapdragon 400, with the newer models mostly sticking to the Snapdragon Wear 2100.
Fossil has been long in the timepiece game too long to adapt and know what their market need and want. With the rise of smartwatches, Fossil later released their own models.
The Q Series has different variants and dons somewhat similar designs, however, are tagged with different prices depending on the model and features it boasts. These models feature standard smartwatch specifications.
