Very informative post!

I personally don’t own a smartwatch, but have been leaning towards possibly getting one soon.

The one thing I think people should understand before buying one is that it isn’t meant to replace your smartphone. They make a great companion device to your smartphone and most manufactures have a smartwatch that can go hand in hand with their phones.


Absolutely ,you got it right Jerry.That is an important point about smartwatches . Thank you very much Jerry

Smartwatches are pretty neat. I’m thinking about getting one.


Of course Omar ,i think it worth it . They can do so much.They make our lives easier .Thanks Omar


I did not realize a smartwatch had so many options! I am forever looking for my cellphone and my tablet. It drives me nuts! A smartwatch might be the answer. Thanks for this awesome post.


I am glad you like my post .Thank you very much


I love the idea of a smartwatch, and will probably get one in the future. I’ve not worn a watch for years as I use my iphone for looking at the time, and everything else. However, I love the fact you can find other lost devices with it! I often lose my phone in the car, or spend ages looking for it in the house. I know it doesn’t replace a smart phone, but would be a great alternative to checking emails or sending texts when you’re on the move.


Definitely worth to be tried out in a lifetime .Thanks kathy


Hi I guess I am more a smart phone person. Mainly because the text on smart watches are to small for me to read. I tried one. But I absolutely like the Idea and many of the functions. I might find a big smartwatch.:)


I am happy you like my post .Thank you very much



Love this article. I have just got a new smartphone from the company I am working with, and I am able to get a smartwatch too. However, I need to pick it myself which is great. So coming across your article has really helped me indeed.

I will let you know how I get on with choosing my smartwatch based on the information you have shared. If I have any issues or questions then I will let you know.

Thanks again for sharing.

All the best,



I actually had no idea that smart watches can do all of those things. I would have to agree with you that it seems a lot more polite to take a look at your watch than constantly take a look at your phone. I one of those people who likes to stick with “old fashioned” things before trying something new, but I definitely see the convenience in getting a smart watch. Thanks for sharing this very informative post!


That’s good.
