What Connected Watch Choose? Our Comparison

Two years later, we see unleashed a whole bunch of small objects supposed to make easier the daily. The individual is increasingly connected with many products that went to the taste of the day. Today, the fridge, the oven, the scale and even the glasses are connected, it was time for the watches to embark on this new era of technology.

A smartwatch, what is it for?

It is a practical tool allowing to keep his phone in his pocket and receiving its notifications directly on the wrist. Thanks to the smart watch, we receive calls, SMS, we take pictures and you can interact with certain applications of your smartphone without even taking it out. Finally, they can also help individuals monitor their health by following their physical activity: calculation of no, speed, heart rate, calories burned, for a real support in their daily training.

How does it work?

The smartwatch capabilities are enabled by a Bluetooth connection between the microprocessor of the smart watch and a device running Android, iOS or OS that is traceable. Well, to tell you the truth, it is a sophisticated computer that connects wireless to your mobile phone, tablet or laptop. It is, therefore, dependent on the presence of a third-party device. Some manufacturers have also released stand-alone models like the Samsung Gear S in which you can insert a sim card and therefore to use his watch as a real phone, of course it is more expensive.

What is the difference with a simple GPS watch?

Although many smart watches monitor biometric data and daily activity with the same title that watches GPS, they especially enable users to do much more.
