If you have a smart watch on your wrist, you no longer need to bring your phone out of your pocket. You can receive calls or reply to messages on the go. This is especially useful if you are exercising or in a scenario where carrying a phone is just too awkward.
Smart watches allows to See your social media notifications: Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, SnapChat, and allow you to interact with the application too.
Just be careful when finding a watch that does this properly. A lot of manufacturers will claim their watches are “connected” in this way but they actually need to feed off a Bluetooth signal from your cell phone. Truly independent, standalone smartwatches require a data plan and SIM card and tend to be on the more expensive side.
When you are running, cycling, swimming or any other form of exercise,
you might want to peek into your messages or calls.
Sometimes it is not possible for you to keep a phone with you in those activities, and
it’s just awkward and annoying when you do anyway.
Here is where a smartwatch becomes really useful.
Smartwatches provide an extension to your smartphone showing some of the content
you could see on your phone but without reaching for your phone.
Another thing smartwatches provide is different sensors for fitness and health tracking.
Step counting, Heart Rate Monitoring, and GPS are some of the features that may come with a smartwatch.
