A smartwatch is probably most described by as “a computerized wristwatch with functionality that goes beyond timekeeping”. While the concept has been toyed with since the 70s, it is only in the past few years that it got a huge push.
Now lets look at the 3 major compelling Reasons why you should have a smart wearable.
It’s also great to quickly take action on those notifications, because of quick action buttons. Received an email you don’t care about? Swipe right and hit Archive. Want to acknowledge a reply to a tweet? Swipe and hit the Like button. All from your wrist.
Android Wear has gestures that let you scroll through notifications by simply flicking the wrist. I agree it looks kinda odd when you’re doing that in the presence of random strangers. But it’s great when you have your hands full and still want to see what’s new.
Ultimately, it all boils down to how important phone notifications are to you in general.
This is where a smartwatch comes in handy. During trips,you can set the destination in Google Maps and turn the phone screen off. On your Android Wear smartwatch, a persistent notification card shows you the distance before the next turn. This is great because sometimes on a long straight road you don’t get voice prompts as often, and a quick tilt of the wrist is all it takes to get some reassurance.
Now just think about modes of transportation where using a smartphone isn’t an option, like a motorbike or a cycle. A smartwatch can be super-convenient in these scenarios.
When I’m wearing one, I love using the smartwatch to perform mundane activities like setting reminders. It’s convenient to raise the wrist, say the activation keyword (for me it’s “Okay Google”) and speak the reminder to the digital assistant. Or say when I get an instant message, and I need to send a monosyllabic reply (like “OK,” “Cool,” “Yes,” “No”), the interface has one-click preset replies.
so consider getting a smart wearable for yourself
