Are smart watches right for you? This question is often not asked, before many of us jump into buying trendy, wearable technology. I strongly suggest extensive researching, YouTube videos, and side by side comparisons, before buying a smart watch.
Are you buying a smart watch because you need one, or because everyone else in your circle of techno-maniacs has one? If you don’t have a job that prohibits cell phones, or any other life styles restricting cell phone use, then chances are, you can keep your money in your pocket. After all, who would choose to send and receive texts or emails on a device that is so small, when you can pull out your iPhone 6s plus, or your Samsung Galaxy Note? These are two comparable devices in the smart phone market, heavily sought-after, primarily for the size of their screen. I wear a smart watch that looks really nice, but my cell phone is still my go-to device anytime I am not under cell phone restrictions. This is a major player when making your decision to own a smart watch, especially of you are the type who leans more toward practicality.
For me, the need for my smart watch, was to have a certain level of communication with family while at work or the gym, without having to carry around, or wear my really large smart phone. I was also able to retire my fit bit, and get the same information from my smart watch. I do feel I am getting good use out of my smart watch. I also use mine to set reminders, alarms, and timers.
In all honesty, I think everyone can benefit from smart watches in some form or fashion. There are many applications to explore, and tons of watch faces to personalize your technical time piece. Some get used for entertainment, with gaming, and music apps. Smart watches are fashionable, with more sleek designs coming to the market, and aside from all the technology, they keep really good time! So, if you are wondering if a smart watch is right for you, find your reason, there is a bit of satisfaction for everyone, waiting in time for discovery.
