Are Smartwatches Worth It?

Smartwatches are often referred to as a waste of money. Unfortunately, people who believe this are not aware of the capabilities of smartwatches. This post will be read by two types of people: those who feel smartwatches are a waste and those who want more information about the benefits and drawbacks of smartwatches before they buy one. Check out our guide below.

Advantages of a Smartwatch

1. They tell more than the time

A watch is a preferred accessory for many people. It can be functional (telling the time), or fashionable. A great watch looks amazing on someone's wrist. The smartphone has made watches less popular today. Why would anyone need to purchase a watch when their phone can tell the time, have a calendar, and set an alarm, right? Well, what you are thinking is correct. Smartwatches can do all these things too.


2. They can be used as a fitness tracker

Many smartwatches include fitness tracking as a standard feature. This will allow you to keep track of your fitness goals. If you ever consider buying a fitness tracker, pedometer, or other devices to help you keep up with your workouts, you can easily replace it with a smartwatch. What can a smartwatch do exactly? A smartwatch can track calories, steps, distance, sleep, and pulse rate. Some even allow you to use it to calculate other important metrics.

3. It's even easier to find a key, phone, or device

Losing your keys or phone is a frustrating experience, as you know. It seems like it always happens before an important event that we can't miss! A smartwatch can make this an inconvenient thing of the past. Many of them include a "Find Phone” feature. It can be connected to any phone or other device, and you can ring it via your watch whenever you like. Lost your phone? To locate your phone in seconds, just press a few buttons on the watch.

4. View your social media notifications

Who wouldn't love to have Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat notifications right on his wrist? This is something that many people use today as they find knowing these notifications essential for their everyday lives.  While some watches only display your messages and other social media activity, others allow you to interact with them. Although it is not the primary or best way to interact with people on social networks, we would recommend it for those times when you're running or doing something else. Be careful when looking for a watch that can do this. Many manufacturers claim that their watches can be connected in this manner, but they need to receive a Bluetooth signal from your phone. To be truly independent, standalone smartwatches need a SIM card and data plan. However, they are also more expensive.


5. It is possible to be connected even while you are doing activities

You might be tempted to check your phone messages, calls, or notifications while you're running, biking, cycling, swimming, or doing any other type of exercise. Sometimes, it is impossible to have a smartphone with you while you are doing these activities. It can also be awkward and frustrating. This is where smartwatches shine. Are you underwater? No problem at all! The Honor band 5 is waterproof up to 50 meters. You can check your messages while you swim by taking a short rest.

Smartwatches: Are they really worth the price?

I'm sure you're convinced right now if you haven't used a smartwatch before. Based on my personal experience, and from the testimonies of others, I can tell you that smartwatches are the best for anyone who values mobility and ease of use. Plus, owning one smartwatch will help you stay “connected” to everybody and everything.
