There a number of watch brands available in the market and it is difficult to choose the best one. You can buy a smartwatch according to your requirements.
The Samsung Gear S3 frontier smartwatch is engineered to be rugged and versatile, for the smart adventurer. It's rugged look and durable silicon band complements its tough construction, built to hold up against harsh weather and everyday bumps. With 4G LTE connectivity and numbers are, you can stay in touch, get updates, and receive notifications, even when you leave your phone behind.
If you're already accustomed to wearing watches, then yes. Smart watches offer a good amount of utility in addition to being a standard timepiece. Otherwise, it's a coin toss. It takes some getting used to having something clamped to your wrist, and for some people, it's a little too annoying to get used to the size of the watch's face, at which point it becomes a wasted investment.
I am and always have been a complete tech junkie. If there’s new technology out, I want it. However, smartwatches are one technical fad that I just can’t buy into.
I have a watch that syncs with GPS satellites wherever I am in the world (and I constantly travel for work), at the same time showing me the time back home. It has an alarm loud enough to wake me from the deepest sleep (useful when you keep changing time zones), has the day and the date and a chronograph.
It has a low-reflective sapphire watch glass and a hardened titanium case and bracelet. And… it runs on daylight. No need to charge it or change a battery, ever. Oh, and it’s waterproof up to 10 bar, too.
It looks way cooler than any Apple watch I’ve seen. Even the Apple Watch Edition, which cost the same amount of money, looks bargain-basement next to it.
Yes, I still have the grinding, exhausting labor of having to haul my phone out of my pocket when it rings, and I do agree the Apple Watch Series 3 is a definite improvement, now that it has cellular call capability. But you’re tied into the same carrier as your phone (iPhone 6 or later only), and not all carriers support it.
So thank you, Apple, but if it’s all the same to you, I’ll continue to grit my teeth, sigh and groan at the tedious grind of having to put my hand in my pocket to answer a call, and the sobering knowledge that my friends and family will be in constant dread over my continued existence, since I can’t send them my heartbeat.
I don’t doubt the breed will improve to the point where I’ll buy one happily, much the same way a photographer friend of mine who used to decry digital cameras as toys that could never replace film, quietly bought a Nikon DSLR. Now he has many. And it took me (a mere amateur) a while to move to a DSLR, but I’m glad I did.
One day there will be a cool-looking dress smartwatch with sapphire and titanium, that has its own standalone call connectivity, intelligent voice recognition, GPS, solar charging etc., and I’ll be happy to snap one up.
I am not a mechanical watch snob any more than I was a film snob before I moved to digital. It’s just that the state of the art was immature before that, and I could get better performance from my existing kit.
I just feel that right now, I’d rather have an excellent watch and an excellent phone rather than a mediocre attempt to ape some of the features of both.
