1. See the time and date
It is so evident that it needs no further explanation. But yes, you will see them in a stylish clock and very technologically advanced.
2. Receive notifications
In this case, you can ask yourself, what is a smartwatch for if I already have my mobile phone? Well, let’s see. Probably the notifications are the essential feature in these moments of a smartwatch.
Whether it’s email, a call, SMS, social networks or any other compatible application event you have on your phone, you will not have to take it out of your pocket, unlock it, or pick it up at the lounge table if you’re on the phone.
But, also, you can answer – even phone calls – if the model allows it and is what you want. Indeed, it is an extraordinarily useful feature.
3. Know where you have to go to a place:
Your new smartwatch probably has GPS, and this will allow you to guide you to the restaurant that you have been recommended.
You will only have to look at your wrist and not have to go to the phone screen while walking. More comfortable is impossible, and you avoid the risks of it falling to the ground or losing it among the crowd on a Saturday night.
Of course, in the car will always be better the larger screen of a phone adequately attached to the support if we want to see a map, but we will not need to do it if the smartwatch has voice functions since it will guide us.
4. Make the shopping list:
A more convenient option than to take a sheet of paper or the smartphone to the store with the shopping list by hand is to use one of the compatible applications for smartwatches that serve for this type of function.
With the smartphone, it was “all in the palm of your hand,” and now it will be “everything with the turn of your wrist.” A smartwatch serves to have both hands free.
5. Pay the purchase:
And since we have bought what we need we will have to pay to be let out of the super. Some smartwatch models have an NFC chip that can be used to pay in establishments that have this system.
Similarly, using PayPal or the credit card are options to consider. Much easier, simpler, faster and more convenient than taking 5 inches of phone or pocket wallet to do so. Although, indeed, this type of functionality is more of a promise than a reality.
6. Measure your sporting results:
If you like to play sports, your smartwatch is a device that can help you. There are multiple applications designed to assess sports performance by measuring the distance traveled or counting the calories consumed.
If you used a specific wristband device or your smartphone with a ribbon on your arm, you could replace it with your versatile smartwatch.
7. Listen to music:
A smartwatch also serves to listen to music. In certain situations, it can be very comfortable to enjoy your music through the watch, either using a Bluetooth headset or its built-in speaker if you have it.
Imagine that you walk around the house doing homework and do not want to turn on your stereo or go carrying the smartphone everywhere; So calm, because your favorite songs will accompany you on your wrist wherever you go.
8. Take pictures and video:
Look what else you can do with one of these watches! Indeed, it will not replace your camera, and, perhaps, not even your phone, but at certain times, it can be a handy option to consider.
Although the quality of these functions depends on the model; For example, the Samsung Gear 2 has a resolution of 2 MP and can record HD video at 1280 × 720 and 30 fps. Amazing!
9. Call by phone & connect to the internet:
Yes, precisely, more and more models are coming onto the market with the possibility of incorporating a SIM card that allows you to make phone calls without depending on the smartphone as well as using the associated data rate.
Also, those with WiFi offer the option to use this type of connection to use the internet with the advantages that come with speed and reservation of the data of our rate.
