6 Benefits of Using a Smartwatch




While similar in appearance to a wristwatch, the smartwatch delivers a lot more in terms of functionality. Aside from telling the time, the typical smartwatch has a touchscreen, hosts various apps, and can perform functions as varied as monitoring vital signs and providing call notifications. It’s a lot like a smartphone, albeit smaller and better designed to be integrated into our busy lives.

Most smartwatches also have Bluetooth capabilities, which extends the functions found in smartphones to the watches. Other smartwatches are standalone devices that have been designed to perform specific functions.

Interested in learning more about the real-world benefits of smartwatches? We’ve compiled a short list of benefits that will hopefully convince you to buy one for your daily use.


1. Keep track of your health and fitness.

Health and fitness tracking are central features found in many smartwatches. While most smartwatches will run fitness apps such as Strava, Runtastic, and Endomondo, fitness smartwatches are specially designed to gather data about the wearer’s health and help them achieve their fitness goals. These fitness smartwatches can monitor heart rate, calories burned, and steps taken, among others. It’s like having a personal trainer wrapped around your wrist.

2. See your notifications instantly.

With a smartwatch, there’s no need for you to continuously retrieve your phone from your pocket or bag everytime you hear an alert. The smartphone’s interface allows you to browse emails, as well as check social media messages and notifications. You can respond instantly to the most important notifications and ignore the least important.

3. Answer calls and texts right away

We’ve all missed important calls because we couldn’t hear our smartphones ringing or vibrating in our bags. Pair your smartphone with your smartwatch via Bluetooth and you’ll instantly be alerted to any incoming calls.
You can also screen your calls. The Sony SmartWatch 3, for example, allows wearers to accept and decline calls. Others, like the Apple Watch, allow wearers to answer calls and carry on conversations directly from the watch. You can also send and receive text messages on your watch. Seriously, who needs a smartphone? 

4. Prevent possible accidents.

Given the convenience of having a smart watch; see your notifications instantly and answer calls and texts right away, it can also lead to a better awareness on the road if you are driving your own motorcycle or bicycle. Many unfortunate things can happen and you need to know what to do and what things can prevent it.

If you’re familiar on cliché saying that “prevention is always better than cure,” then you should try to wear a smart watch – a combination of safeness and comfort.

5. Find your way to unfamiliar destinations.

Finding your way to an unfamiliar destination and navigating your way around an unfamiliar city would be easier with a smartwatch. Once the directions are sent to your watch, you’ll be given turn-by-turn directions to your destination.


6. Listen to music and watch videos.

With a smartwatch, you’ll be able to check out videos and listen to music on-the-go. You can even watch a full-length film on your watch (as long as you don’t mind the smaller screen size). As for music, you can easily tap the next option if you don’t like the current track, as well as stop, modulate sound, or put the next song on queue. Talk about convenient!

7. Search for your misplaced phone.

We’ve all forgotten where we last left our smartphones. With the help of a smartwatch, you’ll be able to intelligently resolve the situation as the “Find Phone” feature is present in the majority of smartwatches today. You can even call your phone or another gadget with your watch if you’ve linked these devices to the app.

Smartwatches are packed with many useful features and provide many benefits. Whether you need a wrist buddy to help you with your day-to-day tasks or a personal coach to help you achieve your fitness goals, there’s a smartand stylishsmartwatch out there for you!
