What is a smartwatch?
When hearing the word smart watch, some might think of the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear, Garmin or other names. But nowadays it is not only big technology companies or manufacturers of sports watches that make watches with 'smart' functionalities. 'Regular' watch manufacturers such as Fossil
, Tommy Hilfiger
, etc. now also produce smart watches and combine their own expertise in making watches with technological progress.
A smartwatch is a computerized wristwatch with more functionalities than just time display. They are designed to offer functions, either independently or linked to a smartphone (usually via Bluetooth), such as mobile apps, caller ID, SMS and social media alerts, weather reports, fitness monitoring, and GPS coordinates.
How to choose your smart watch?
The following steps will help you make a good choice.
1. What features do you find important?
Are you an active person? Are you looking for a super sophisticated model or are you satisfied with a limited number of functions?
In our range we differentiate three different categories.
a watch with a lot of functions that can be operated via a touchscreen like on your smartphone. With this type of watch it is often possible to control your phone camera, music, calls, emails, text messages, calendar, mailbox and more. This type of smartwatch often contains biometrical monitors such as a heart rate monitor, a pedometer and sleep rhythm analysers that you can access from your phone. But it is also possible to operate the watch independently. The touch screen can be adapted to your personal style and taste.
Hybrid smartwatches look and operate like a regular analog watch, but contain smart functionalities such as a heart rate monitor, a pedometer and sleep rhythm analysers hidden under the watch dial. Connection to a smartphone is necessary to exchange information. These watches are well suited for a specific purpose, such as sports, but can just as well be worn as a dress watch.
