Smartwatches usually have several features that make them smart. Here are a few key features that a good smartwatch should have-
● Sedentary lifestyle reminder: some of the best smartwatches, a typical example is an android smart watch, allow you to set targets and objectives for your physical activity. Therefore, we can say that these products promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
● Notifications: just like fitness bands, smartwatches can also be set to receive notifications (and in some cases to vibrate) in case we receive a message (including Facebook and Whatsapp), a call, or an email or other alerts from the app.
● Alarm clock: Many models allow you to set an alarm. Some also offer a "silent alarm" or intelligence: the smartwatch will vibrate without emitting any sound, so as to have a less traumatic (and less annoying for the neighbors) awakening.
Connectivity and Apps
Good smartwatches always have inbuilt Bluetooth and are able to connect with other Bluetooth devices like smart bands, tablets, and laptops. A good android smart watch is a real extension of your smartphone where you can get notifications and read them on its screen.
Another important feature of a good smartwatch is the support of popular apps which can increase their functionality substantially. Like with the help of the right application you can monitor your health & fitness activities.
It is advisable to cross-check the compatibility of a smartwatch with popular apps as many low-cost models don't even support a few must-have applications.
The battery life and the & time between two battery recharges are some of the basic aspects which everyone should see before making the decision to buy a particular smartwatch.
An android smart watch may not have longer-lasting autonomy but usually have a longer battery life. But if you are using your smartwatch as a fitness band then you’ll need autonomy for several days.
The autonomy also depends on the features and functionality a smartwatch provides and if required then you can even disable a few unimportant features to increase the autonomy.
These days, everyone wants to have a waterproof smart watch and hence all the companies are making them waterproof. We even have swimming smartwatches which are used for water sports.
Every sports person should choose a waterproof smart watch because they need the protection of their smartwatch from their sweat, dust, and water (as they use water very frequently to keep their body cool).
Your smartwatch should have good features like- you should receive automatic alerts when it is time to train (physical) after a period of inactivity. To access higher functionality, your smartwatch should be able to get connected with a smartphone. Needless to say, the battery must have a longer life and it should be waterproof.
