Smartwatch & Wearables FAQ

What is The Best Smartwatch?

The best smartwatch will depend largely on what phone and ecosystem you use most. If you have an iPhone, you’ll want to use an Apple Watch. If you’re an Android user, you’ll be best off with a Wear OS-powered smartwatch, something like the Moto 360 or the OPPO Watch.

Samsung makes a range of Tizen-powered smartwatches that are designed to sync perfectly with its smartphones.

Samsung’s Tizen smartwatches, in many respects, are better than most of the Wear OS watches on the market.

If you’re serious about tracking your activity, specifically running or golfing, then you’re best off with a Garmin watch: these are designed specifically with athletes and specific sports and activities in mind, like sailing, golf, and running.

Is It Worth Buying A Smartwatch?

If you’re serious about tracking your activity and health, then a smartwatch makes a lot of sense. You can use it to monitor your daily step count, track your runs, and monitor your heart beat and bloody oxygen levels.

Beyond this, you can use your smartwatch to take calls, screen text messages and emails, and quickly respond to emails.

If that sounds appealing, then, yes, you should probably consider investing in a smartwatch. 

Which Smartwatch Has The Best Battery Life?

Apple’s Apple Watch might be the most popular smartwatch on the planet, but it does not impress in the battery performance department.

You will have to charge your Apple Watch on a daily basis, whereas with some Garmin watches you can go a week to 14 days on a single charge.

My Huawei smartwatch will do a full week before it needs a top-up (and that’s with it using GPS too).
