CAIRO, Dec.23 (SEE)- Companies such as: Samsung, Apple, Fitbit, Huawei, Garmin and several others are working day and night to improve the watches and truly make the experience a lot better.
These firms realised that people want the ability to track runs or closely monitor gym workouts, but don’t want to miss out on all the other good stuff like notifications, controlling music.
- Samsung Gear S3
You can tell that the S3 is a top smartwatch released earlier this year, the S3 focuses on everything that was right in the previous versions, and adds even more features than before.
For years Samsung’s Gear series of smartwatches have been dominating the market for all the right reasons.
The build quality is extremely pleasing, with premium quality materials used throughout the construction. The watch definitely feels like a fashion statement as much as it feels like a premium smartwatch.
“Gear S3” does not run on Android wear instead it runs on Samsung’s own OS called “Tizen”. Another great thing about the ”Gear S3” is the fact that it comes loaded with activity trackers of all sorts.
- Huawei Watch 2
Huawei is one of the companies that tried to make the smartwatches relevant by perfectly mixing the design elements of traditional watches with the advanced features of smartwatches.
The watch can be worn the entire day without feeling uneasy or too much to handle. It has plenty of sports sensors and other fitness sensors as well as well as has a feature known as the real-time workout guidance.
It can last up to 2 days on a single charge.That the watch 2 also comes with Bluetooth and NFC. This makes the whole concept of Android Pay a lot easier especially in countries where it is available.
- Garmin Fenix 3
Garmin is a company that is known for their top of the line ”GPS” technology that we have seen in so many different fields.
“Garmin Fenix 3” can easily be called the holy grail of smartwatches simply because it comes loaded with features that you would want from a high-end smart watch. It has a big, beautiful, and bright display as well as get a hard wearing body.
The watch come with the choice of a rubber band or metal band. The battery on the Garmin Fenix 3 is another one of its strong point as well as it is also water resistant up to 100 meters .You can take it to showers, swimming and diving.
- Apple Watch Series 3
The watch come with 3 features such as: built in GPS, swim tracking, heart rate monitor, fitness tracker, offline music playback, third party apps and contactless payments.
Speaking of apps the onboard ones continue to evolve as “Apple” adds features and enhances existing ones through its “watchOS” updates. There’s a whole host of third party health and fitness apps too including “Strava” that work without having to carry your iPhone around with you.
- Fitbit Versa
We know the Ionic’s angular design won’t be for everyone, so if you can live without built in GPS, you can always go for the “Fitbit Versa”, which is a fair bit cheaper than the Ionic.
It has a significantly smaller frame than Fitbit’s first smartwatch making it a better fit for slimmer wrists. You also get a whole range of sport friendly bands to choose from and a waterproof up to 50 metres design bringing all of the same swim-tracking skills as the Ionic.
“Versa” is svelte, good looking fitness smartwatch that we think you’re going to like a lot.
