Should I Buy a Smartwatch for Christmas?

The aftermath of Christmas and the new year is bound to make us all rethink our lifestyles and the post-holiday rush. The end of the year is filled with rich food, good company and time to do nothing else but relax. 

There are mainly three reasons why you may consider buying a smartwatch, to get fit, to monitor your health or to get organised. A smartwatch can be the virtual assistant you have been looking for, helping you to become fitter after Christmas and more organised throughout the New Year. But here’s what you need to know about buying a smartwatch from our experts at Used Mobiles 4U. Getting back in shape is on everyone’s new year’s resolution list, but one way that you can stay ahead is by gifting yourself a smartwatch for Christmas.

Different types of smartwatches

Choosing a make and model of a smartwatch can be difficult because there are so many out there, it’s vital to decide which one would best suit your needs. There are three main categories of smartwatches: classic smartwatches, hybrid smartwatches and fitness trackers.

Classic smartwatches

Classic smartwatches link up to a smartphone via its Bluetooth connection to notify you of incoming calls, text messages, emails, social media updates, calendar events, etc. The information is displayed on a touchscreen display and you can also use smartwatch-friendly apps. Classic smartwatches will allow you to make and receive phone calls, plus send and read text messages. Classic smartwatches also often have fitness and health tracking capabilities too, and they tell the time.

Hybrid smartwatches

Hybrid smartwatches are a combination of classic smartwatches and analogue watches; they look like any standard analogue watch with mechanical arms instead of a touchscreen display. They can be connected to a handset via Bluetooth and provide phone notifications, fitness metrics, and other important information. Compared to classic smartwatches, hybrid smartwatches may have a more durable design and sport a battery life that can last for weeks on end. They are an excellent option for those who want a traditional watch, as well as some of the features that are provided by classic smartwatches with a touchscreen display.

Fitness trackers

If you’re a health and fitness fanatic, you’ll no doubt love a fitness tracker; this type of smartwatch puts health and fitness first. Not only do they monitor your steps, calories, heart rate, blood pressure, sleep, but they offer a wide range of fitness modes and many other features to help you to stay healthy. Fitness trackers provide the time and date, but fitness trackers are also great because they tend to be cheaper than classic smartwatches.

Either way, smartwatches have become a must-have accessory for those who love gadgets. If you buy one for Christmas, you’ll introduce lots of benefits to your everyday life, such as ensuring you never miss any important notifications from your phone or tracking your health and fitness right around the clock.
