Smartwatches are electronic bracelets that can run advanced applications and act as a traditional watch simultaneously. Some more modern smartwatches are effectively wearable computers, with certain models offering all the features of a modern-day smartphone and can function independently of an additional device. eBay offers a wide range of options to choose from, including the popular Fitbit, as well as the Huawei smartwatch, Apple watch series 5, kids smart watch, Garmin forerunner, and Pixel watch.Features and Applications
Most smartwatches come with built-in backlit OLED or LCD displays that are usually touch responsive. A great example is the Samsung smartwatch Gear series, which allows users to access dozens of unique health apps that rely on touch screen capabilities. And speaking of health, boost your fitness levels with features including a built-in heart rate monitor and fitness tracker, found on the Fitbit watch and Apple watch series 4.
Bluetooth is a crucial feature of smartwatches. It allows them to connect to an additional device such as a smartphone or tablet. This feature can enable smartwatches access to calendars, emails, messages and phone calls.
GPS tracking units are often built in. These allow the devices to track movement effectively, which is ideal for measuring performance in endurance sports such as jogging and cycling. Newer models, such as the Garmin watch and Apple Watch Series 3, can use the GPS capability to display maps and current coordinates.
The Apple Watch 2 and 3 can be submerged up to 50 metres underwater for up to 30 minutes, which is an ideal device for those wishing to track their swimming progress.Customisation Options
Before buying your device, it is good to know if it can be customised. Check out the different straps available for each device and how easy they are to switch over.
Some smartwatch creators, such as Apple, have collaborated with high fashion brands, like Hermes, to create stylish and unique straps with other fashion brands offering their own spin on the smart watch to help streamline your day while complementing your everyday looks like the Micheal Kors smartwatch. These are more expensive than most normal straps but are a real fashion statement.
