Today, technology is gaining more and more ground in society. Innovations of all kinds allow us to live in the age of time. Currently, one technological innovation is catching on more and more: connected watches. All brands have embarked on the creation of connected watches containing applications, new specificities, and new settings that further accentuate our modern world today. What are the specifics of connected watches and what are the best-connected watches in 2018?
Apple connected watch: Apple Watch
The Apple Watch has been known for years. It comes in several models, and it has never disappointed users so far. The latest model is the Apple Watch Series 4, which requires an iPhone 6 with IOS 12. It can be used for all sports activities and even underwater activities. The Apple Watch Series 4 is waterproof up to 50 meters, thus meeting ISO standards. However, it is not recommended to use it for extreme sports such as water skiing or scuba diving.
Samsung connected watch: the Samsung Galaxy Watch
The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a very powerful connected watch. It is the number one opponent of the Apple Watch Series 4 and it is the only one that manages to compete with it. The frequency of its processor is 1.15 GHz for 2 cores. It has 1.5 GB of storage capacity and a battery capacity of 472 mAh. It is equipped with Wifi technology and Bluetooth support. There are many models of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. They all allow you to make calls, surf the internet, use Bluetooth, and more. It is also possible to perform physical activities, but just like the Apple Watch Series 4, it is not recommended for use for extreme sports where there is a lot of water current, such as scuba diving or water skiing.
Huawei Watch 2: A brand that defends itself
In recent years, the Huawei brand has been gradually taking center stage. The Huawei Watch 2, the connected watch offered by the brand, has been ranked the best-connected watch in 2018. This model has several new parameters, reviewed by the brand, namely GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4G. It can be used alone or with a phone. It consists of several sensors that allow a complete analysis of data and physical performance. Examples include heart rate or the number of steps. The only downside is that the Huawei Watch 2 has a rather masculine design, which makes it unsuitable for women and people with small wrists. However, this does not reduce its performance.
Connected watches can therefore be used with or without a smartphone. They offer detailed tracking and analysis of everything from step count to heart rate to general health. They contribute to their reputation as being connected thanks to GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technologies.
