How to choose a smartwatch

Choosing a smartwatch that is right for you comes down to many factors. Here we will go through some of the important things to put in consideration.

We suggest you try our smartwatch finder at the top of the page. Just answer a few questions, and by guided the the best smartwatch for you.

Are you looking for a device to purely track your activity, try our fitness tracker finder.

Your type of smartphone

To get the most out of what the smartwatch offers, you need to choose one that is compatible with your smartphone’s operating system. Some watches may not work fully with every OS. Most watches work with android except for Apple Watch which will not pair with an android phone. If you have a Windows phone, there are sadly not many watches out there for you to choose from.

Most watches run an operating system called Android Wear, which will work on all android phones. But some manufacturers such as Samsung have a few features limited to only Samsung phones.

Do I need a smartphone to use a smartwatch? The answer to that is no. You can use any watch without syncing it to your phone. However, the memory of a smartwatch is not large, so you will not be able to store massive amount of data over a long period of time. E.g. if you use the watch for tracking your activity such as distance, time etc. You would want to move that data to the app on your phone, so you can go back and look at it later.

Which brings us to the next topic:

Activity tracking

Many people choose to buy a smartwatch for tracking their daily activity. Most watches do have this feature. Many do also have a built in heart-rate monitor, so you can monitor your pulse while you’re exercising, and look back at this data later to see your improvements. There watches are naturally much more expensive than those without heart-rate monitoring.

If you’re a serious runner, you might also want a built in GPS function on you watch. This will allow you to go on a run without bringing your smartphone and use your phone as a GPS tracker.

If you however do not want to track your activity, there are more cheaper watches that you might look into, that offers very few activity tracking abilities or non at all.

If you’re looking for a purely activity tracking device, you might like our activity tracker finder.

Your personal style

Smartwatches comes in many different sizes, colours and variations. And a watch should always fit you style and personality. That’s why you should take in consideration the watch’s appearance. If you’re a woman, you might want to choose a smaller one so that it fits your wrist better and do not look bulky.

Are you more of a sporty person, a fashionable person, or a geeky person? Answering these question might lead you closer to finding a watch the suits you in terms of looks and features. The finder quiz at the top of the page will help you eliminate those watches that do not suit your personal style.

The same watch might even come in different colours, and variations.

Price

Our product finder do not take price into consideration. So if you want a cheaper watch, you might have to sacrifice some features such as heart-rate monitoring and GPS functions.

There are always some lower cost watches, but be aware of the cheapest ones that often advertise that it runs on android OS, but this might not be the case. Features also tend to be very poor compared to more reliable brands.
