In the age we live in, everything seems to be acquiring the “smart” tag to be trending with the times. Mobile phones were the first victims of this smart generation and now wristwatches have taken on the smart mantle. So what should you be looking for in that Smart Watch?
Size, shape and material are always the primary concerns when buying wearable technology. Most of the models on the market today come in a variety of shapes – round dial, square dial, oval dial, etc; and in a variety of strap colours and finishes – from steel links to leather finishes and rubber. A lot of them also have interchangeable straps and frames for the fashion- conscious. Another factor that one should look out for when buying these watches is the usability – as each user may have a different target. Keeping your personal preferences in mind – do check the features on offer. Fitness junkies can check for heart rate monitors, calorie counters, activity stats, etc. while others can look at features like OS compatibility, battery life, water resistance, etc.
