Similar Smartwatches For Men 2018

similar smartwatches for men 2018:

in this article we will talk about similar smartwatches that are actually in the market, some of them have similarity on the design side, and honestly the case for the majority of these watches, and others on technical specs, but others are similar on both design, and technical features.

let’s take a look at Apple series 3. first of all this Apple device has come with tow different versions the GPS, and the GPS + LTE version. but they are basically similar in both, features, and design except that LTE technology. this is a really big deal from apple, because it is the first smartwatch by this big brand, that can be used without iphone, and it’s also a super powerful piece in terms of technical specs.

generally this is the Apple fourth generation smartwatch, as the first has named only Apple watch, and the reason why we put it on the list of similar smartwatches is because of its design, which is exactly as the one of the series 2.

Unsurprisingly, Apple has stuck with a same design, and actually it’s the same on almost Apple’s different timepieces,  which is probably a relief to all of the watch OS developers out there. but fortunately the both watches are very different on the technical side, and you can check the the details below to see how much they are different to each other.

The Ticwatch S VS E:

And now,” let’s jump into the second choice of our similar smartwatches list review. this time will be talking about, Ticwatch S, and E version. both of these watches look similar almost on everything except the bands, which are removable on the Express version, while in the Ticwatch S aren’t. and the reason why, is the S version has actually a GPS built-into the band, and this is also the exact reason why this one called Sport version. simply because it has a better GPS, but I don’t think you will recognize any differences on data they will give you. in terms of design this tow watches might look quite different, but technically that’s not the case.

So, it seem pretty clear that there are big differences between this two time pieces, except the one we have mentioned before, which is the GPS built-in to the band of Ticwatch S, which causes its band been not replaceable. oh yeh” I should mention also that the  Watch bezel for superior display not featured in the E version.

Looking For A Stylish Smartwatch? Michael Kors Access Is 2 In One

michael kors smartwatch Access Touchscreen Rose Gold Bradshaw Smartwatch MKT5004

Smartwatches are growing in popularity today, and brands are in super competitive state, And each brand need to boost his technology, to keep himself up with the market level, and fill the needs of his costumers.

As you may know the watches market was already a super competitive market, and there are traditional brands which are so engaged in the competition since many years ago like, fossil, Mikeal kors, and Gucci, Rolex, And so on.

But I think the game has changed now, that’s why many traditional brands are working hard to stay up with the market Improvements. One of the hardest challenges of smart watches manufacturers is to make sure they are really up with the need of the users, and try hard as possible to fight with their competitors.

michael kors smartwatch

In this review we will talk about michael kors smartwatch access Bradshaw, and I’ll try my best to cover everything about it. Introducing Michael Kors Access—a smartwatch that seamlessly fuses fashion and technology. Powered by Android Wear, this innovative design is equipped with multiple animated display faces, fitness tracking, text and email alerts. Consider it the chicest way to do tech.

details:

• Powered by Android Wear
• Compatible with iPhone and Android phones
• Oversized
• Gold-Tone Stainless Steel
• 44.5mm Case
• Digital Movement
• Social Media Updates
• Text/Email Alerts
• App Notifications
• Smart Help From Google
• Built-In Fitness Tracking
• Voice-Activated Google
• Clasp Fastening
• Extra Buckle Included To Use With Interchangeable Straps
• Water Resistant Up To 1 ATM
• 2-Year Warranty
• Imported

michael kors smartwatch



So let’s start by design which is the best part of this wearable. access has a very smoothie, and high finished edges. the display is a touchscreen 1.4 inch, and the case material is stainless steel, the bracelet also is stainless steel the bracelet looks very beautiful, and stylish. it is brushed in the center, and polished by the side and that’s obviously makes it look very classy. the case size for women’s version is 44.5 mm, and 44.5 mm in the case size. The one for men is 46 mm the dial obviously will be a little bigger for men.

NOTE: changing the band is easy so that is a plus. It is a big faced watch so it won’t be for everyone, but it’s necessary to be able to have a touchscreen that is easily used. Additionally it is heavy, but again if you switch out the band that will help. Overall I think this is a beautiful piece of jewelry that with the Smartwatch capabilities added makes it even better.

michael kors smartwatch

As for use it has been very user friendly and intuitive for me, and should be for anyone that is comfortable with a smartphone. I like that you can easily change the watch face look and even set it to change for you for both day and night looks.

I hesitated giving it 5 stars for only one reason; is being the price. I understand the brand is automatically going to raise the price, but I think that because of the price you should also receive an additional band as well.

The Pros:
  • Reason 1 – Looks good. That’s what the fashion part is for right
  • Reason 2 – Built pretty solid. Feels like it is put together right
  • Reason 3 – Water resistant
The Cons:
  • Reason 1 – Heavy. I work out a lot and it still feels heavy on my wrist
  • Reason 2 – Performance is inconsistent

For the price of $350, these watches are some of the best looking ones on the market right now. The plus is that they are also water resistant which makes it easier to not be nervous about getting it wet in the rain. But with the performance and how the screen changes and the functions itself, the smartwatch is no different than any other Android Wear out there on the market. Plain and simple, the display is lackluster. I don’t think it’s worth the $350 price tag. If you want a good looking watch, just get a regular Michael Kors watch. Albeit, these are cheaply made watches (not as cheap as the knock offs you get in Chinatown, but definitely not worth the price tag for the higher end ones).

That’s only for those whom consider the price the high priority factor they should take on before buying any product.

We’re almost done, but I would like to mention that it has a Very nice battery, it doesn’t last very long, but it’ll get you through the work day. and I think that’s OK, considering it’s a smartwatch that basically focuses on being stylish more than anything else.

Suunto Spartan GPS sport watch One The Best Wearable In 2018

2
GPS sport watch


The Suunto Spartan trainer is basically a GPS sport watch, with a few activity tracking, and SmartWatch features on it. in terms of design this is definitely looks like a sports watch, so some people might like that, and others might not. I think it’s really cute, it comes in this great robin egg blue color, that we have here, but it definitely is more of a sports watch look if that’s what you’re looking for, and I have a really small wrist, but this fits just fine.

GPS sport watch

there are a lot of settings you can definitely get. a custom fit with this it does have the little GPS knob, or antenna hood, it’s smaller and doesn’t really get in the way. but that did make a comeback with the Spartan trainer. also this GPS sport watch is water resistant down to 50 meters. about the battery life, it can goes to about four days on a single charge. which is a little less than the bigger Spartan watch. we’ve heard there is a software update due for release in October 2017 that will improve battery life, but it’s not that bad right now, considering we’ve been using it pretty heavily everyday.

the Spartan trainer, does have a wrist heart-rate monitor on the underside, that heart rate monitor is actually from valence cell, and we’ve seen that it’s typically one of the best heart-rate monitors out there. we think it’s actually better than the rest for circuit training, and weight training, however we did get some funky swings while running with this watch, and it was estimating a little high. not sure what’s happening there, but that new software update coming out soon is supposed to help with the heart rate. sensor as well the heart rate monitor can actually run 24/7 if you want it to, or you can switch that setting off, to increase battery life.

GPS sport watch

you also have the option to connect the Suunto Bluetooth heart-rate monitor, if you’re looking for something like you’re swimming heart-rate data, or just better heart-rate data in general. the bottom line is wrists heart rate monitor technology, is really hard to get right but balanced cell, does a really good job of it. it’s just still not perfect.

now let’s talk about all the sports stuff, the Suunto trainer can track, weight training, running, circuit training, pool swimming, trail running, treadmill running, cycling, open water swimming, triathlons the list just goes on, and on.

and because this is GPS sport watch as we’ve mentioned before, it didn’t have any issues with the GPS accuracy, or any of the data aside from the heart rate monitor, being slightly off sometimes.



Spartan trainer, also has a navigation feature, where you can create custom routes, and courses and add different points of interest, if you want and then you can download those onto the watch directly. this is really great if you’re like me, and you like backpacking, or hiking because you can actually upload a route into the watch, or if you’re not sure where you want to go, you can check out the suunto website, and they have predetermined routes that you can actually download to the watch as well.

GPS sport watch

the navigation feature, seems as it’s not an exclusive technology on this GPS sport watch, there was a very similar feature on other Garmin, and Suunto watches. the other neat thing about Suunto, is that you can see heart maps on their website, and mobile app for the popularity of certain areas. so let’s say you want to go cycling, you can actually find the popular routes, and then download those from the website straight to your device, that’s pretty neat the Suunto web portal. is actually a lot more helpful than the mobile app, even though the mobile app continues to get better. you can still do more with the website, and it’s just easier to use you can see your personal workouts, and stats, map out future workouts, get training plans for marathons 10ks, and more.. so it’s a great web portal, but the mobile app still needs a bit of a facelift activity.

tracking is really just that the watch will tell you how active you’ve been in terms of calories, and steps, but there’s no sleep tracking feature just yet, so it is pretty basic which is really what suunto is going for. they have all the basic features you could want in a GPS sport watch, but really there are performance companies, so they give you the options to track sports as well.

now the Spartan trainer, can also act as a SmartWatch. it displays your incoming phone notifications so nothing crazy special here, but you do receive an alert on your wrist for incoming notifications, like texts, and phone calls, it works well and we’re glad they added this feature, but again the focus for this watch is really on the performance side. the onboard software is a little bit clunky, and the heart rate monitor isn’t perfect.the mobile app definitely still needs some work, and activity tracking as well

behind what we’re seeing with Garmin, or Fitbit so to sum it up, this watch doesn’t offer anything new that we haven’t seen on any other models. but what Suunto really did, was

take their high-end performance features that they offer on their larger models, and shrink it down into a smaller device, so this watch is really great for people with smaller wrists, that still want a solid sports watch.

Garmin Fforerunner Watch Wear Information To Know

watch wear


Hi’ dears, today we’ll talk about GARMIN forerunner watch wear, and we’ll start our review from the design, and hardware. And then get into the other technical details.

The forerunner 35 watch wear is pretty sleek, but it kind of reminds me of the pebble time Smartwatch, or a Game Boy product large bezels, and a huge brand logo at any rate though has a new high-resolution display, but really the screen is nothing special it’s just black, and white.

It’s easy to view in direct sunlight, which I was a little worried about, it’s also back-lite in case you’re somewhere dark, it will collect some scratches over time, but nothing out of the ordinary. It’s not a touchscreen which I actually prefer, when it comes to running watches. I’d much rather have physical buttons to cycle through the various data screens. I have trouble with touch screens when I’m moving quickly, so the four buttons, two on each side of the display, are definitely convenient and user-friendly.






 

android wear



Moving on the band of this watch wear, is extremely comfortable compared to some of the other fitness trackers, and running watches, we’ve reviewed lately. It’s a watch style locking system, extremely lightweight soft, it’s easy on, and off, and it doesn’t grab your arm hair at all. You’ve got GPS no GLONASS, but the signal is pretty good, and it connects fairly quickly, even though it’s best suited for running. Since the watch does up GPS, you can use it for cycling to get your speed distance, heart rate timing info, and route there’s the optical heart rate sensor on the underside.




Other articles:


Basically the same one we’ve seen in the other four runners. Of course it’s not on par with the chest heart rate monitor for strength workouts, and anything that’s really dynamic, but for running, it’s pretty good, and any fall is really just a function of the technology not Garmin.

You can connect it with an external ANT+ heartrate monitor, though if you want regardless the sensor is running all day, and night and during your workout, to give you a more complete picture of your daily metrics. other things to keep in mind, it is waterproof down to 50 meters, so there’s no issue here for showering, hopping in the pool.

 

The battery life of forerunner 35 watch wear:

So Garmin says, up to 13 hours while in trading mode that’s GPS and heart rate running, and up to nine days in regular old watch mode.

You’re probably looking at about six to seven days of battery life, for the average user. That’s someone who is running a few times a week, but really everything depends on how much you’re working out overall. Though you’re looking at pretty decent battery life.

Also the forerunner watch wear syncs via USB and Bluetooth to the Garmin Connect app, but unfortunately it charges via a proprietary clip cable, which kind of sucks. I wish it was just micro-USB.

The functional stuff for your workouts it has a few different basic sport profiles. Running indoor running cycling, and cardio. none of these are really advanced. though on this watch wear, you won’t get the hardcore features you see in the Garmin two, 3 235 etc. you’re just going to get the essentials, so distance pay speed route timing info cadence, and of course heart rate.

there’s a lot of customized options for you to choose from, though compared to some of the previous, and low rank Garmin models, a couple different run modes you can try out run walk mode, where you can run for say 30 seconds, then walk for 30 seconds virtual pacer, to keep you on track during your run and intervals, so you can run for a predetermined distance, then rest for a predetermined time.

There are vibration alerts, and you can customize these, so time distance calories, and heart rate alerts interestingly. Though they did not add pace alerts you can also customize the data fields displayed as well, and lastly there is also auto pause in case you have to stop, and talk to someone during your workout in terms of activity tracking you’re just going to get the essentials shown here on the screen.



Garment is pretty good at tracking. This stuff you do have auto goal, which we like and is determined by your previous day’s statistics, so it’s just not a static goal helping to keep you motivated. There is also a move bar displayed on the bottom of the home screen, as well as inactivity reminders.

 

Smartphone notifications on this watch wear:

That forerunner 35, will relay the basic notifications, so text calls emails calendar, alerts as well as other third-party apps. That is if you are within Bluetooth range which is about 33 feet you’re also going to have music controls, and now both streamed and store music can be controlled on both iOS, and Android devices.

 

Another new thing, is that live tracking, so if you bring your phone with you on a run your friends, or your overprotective, mom can watch how you’re doing in real time, and that’s really it that’s the forerunner 35 overall. I think it’s going to be fairly popular. It’s really for the average runner, and if you can get over that price tag, I think it’s going to be that watch that a lot of people have been asking for.

Top Rated Fitness Smartwatches Garmin Vivoactive Review

top rated fitness smartwatches


Hi” dear reader, the top rated fitness smartwatches garmin vivoactive is a GPS for watch, and activity tracker. it’s sort of a hybrid between really high-end devices, like the phoenix 3, and the 920XT, and then basic activity trackers, like the vivofit. It takes some of the best features from both of them, and I think it really makes a device, that a lot of you will be interested in.



now in my initial review, I talked about the fact that the active is lightweight thin, and really comfy on your wrist, but that it’s not quite as rugged as I would have, hoped it’s all plastic and is already showing a few signs of wear, additionally a wallet has a full-color sunlight readable touch screen, which I’m a big fan of generally speaking, the bezel on this thing is ginormous any Garmin logo seems unnecessarily large, also because it has a touchscreen, and you’re constantly swiping left, and right to access your data, and to start a workout etc..

the face of the device, is really a hub for fingerprints, and smudges, I know that’s an inevitability when you have a touchscreen, but it’s still very annoying and speaking of swiping left, and right on this  vivoactive smartwatch.

been the top rated fitness smartwatches is not from its technical specs. only, but because this is a watch that you’re supposed to wear basically all day. the way that it looks, and its attractiveness is clearly very important, and when I first saw this device, when Garmin first announced it at CES 2015, I was thinking man that is not an attractive device, it’s actually pretty ugly and boxy, but since I’ve been testing it out, it has really grown on me I now think it’s really modern, and attractive and I like, the fact that you can customize the bands, so I really think you can make this your own device, and I don’t think it looks really all that bad on your wrist.

And that’s about it in terms of design, I think it’s comfortable its custom izybelle it is stylish, and it’s got a nice little color display on it. which actually has really good viewing angles in sunlight.

”<<<check the price Garmin vívoactive on amazon>>”



3 main things that made Garmin Vivoactive the top rated fitness smartwatches:

-number one: track your 24/7 activity, and your Sleep.

-Number tow: monitor your cardiovascular workouts.

-and then number three: act as your Smartwatch.

let’s go a little bit deep into these three main features:

number one: it tracks your steps calories burned, and distance traveled. it provides you with a daily steps goal, and it has auto goal which automatically adjusts that daily steps goal based on your recent activity, and I’m a really big fan of auto goal, and as a move bar on the bottom of the wellness screen that grows in size the more you remain sedentary, and when Garmin deems it’s time for you to get up after you’ve been sitting way too long, it will then vibrate to alert you it’s time to move, and I really like the move reminders as well, and lastly it automatically logs your sleep though the sleep analysis on garments app is lackluster to say the least oh yeah” I forgot to talk about the app this is a little bit off on a tangent, but whatever the app is available for iOS and Android users, and the vivoactive actually syncs via Bluetooth 4.0 automatically when you open up Garmin connect. Additionally you can sync via USB using the Garmin Express Mac and PC app, and from here you can use the Garmin Connect online application.

number two: monitoring your cardiovascular workouts, it has eight built in workout apps running cycling swimming walking golf, and indoor running indoor cycling, and indoor walking for now there isn’t a strength training app, or interval training app, nor can you create your own workout apps like you can on the Fenix 3.

So you should plan on using the active only for cardio workouts, and for golf at any rate it shows your activity specific information during your workout. So for running that means time distance pace cadence laps etc. for swimming you’ll get laps distance stroke count calories, and more just so you know it is water-resistant up 250 meters, and for cycling well you get most of the headline stats. there is one thing I want to point out before we go into golf in indoor activities, is that the vivoactive has ANT+ built in, and you can connect to a number of different sensors, that will be helpful in your workouts, including heart rate monitors foot pods, and cycling sensors. So that’s always really nice now for golf has 38,000 courses available for download. and can show you the distance to the front middle, and the back of the green as well as your shot distance for indoor workouts, the vivoactive is really relying on the accelerometer to determine your distance, so it won’t be the most accurate thing in the world, but regardless it’s still nice that it will attempt to find your distance while you’re running on a treadmill. You’ll probably be connecting to an ant plus speed, and cadence sensor for monitoring your indoor cycling, and this will show your speed cadence, and distance.

 I mentioned earlier that this is a GPS watch, and that’s true it will map you’re running, and cycling endeavors and uses GPS for the golf app, but it also has access to the Russian form of GPS known as GLONASS, the global navigation satellite system, which basically ensures that you’ll always have a mapping connection, unfortunately GPS is a real drain on the battery life, though the vivoactive gets three weeks in watch mode, but only 10 hours in GPS mode. so right around five to seven days on average.

top rated fitness smartwatches



and the last thing that I want to discuss regarding the apps, are that you can turn on different features, like heart rate training, and speed training as well as auto scroll, and auto pause essentially you can customize the apps to a certain extent and even change what you see in certain screens, and add and remove different screens, so you get quite a lot of control over the workout applications.

”<<<check the price Garmin vívoactive on amazon>>”

it can track your activity, your sleep and your workouts, but it also is your Smartwatch, and it’s only getting smarter allow me to explain, so while you’re at the main screen of  the watch face you can swipe to access your wellness information. so your steps calories burned distance traveled, and that’s really good stuff, but you can continue on swiping, and you’ll get a few really neat things your phone notification, your full days calendar weather, and the ability to control music playback on your phone, and this is just the start Garmin rolled out connect IQ which is a platform to allow developers to create more widgets, and watch faces and applications for select Garmin products, and this is what I mean when I say it’s only getting smarter the more developers that invest in Garmin, the more useful and capable your vivoactive will become. At present you get your phone notifications, but in the future hopefully you’ll have much more at your disposal.

top rated fitness smartwatches

now Garmin Connect IQ, is a part of what makes it in top rated fitness smartwatches, and as an exciting device, but I also think just the level of personalization you have is really neat, I’ve already talked about changing the screens within apps, and I don’t want to undersell this it’s really nice that you can switch around which data points are presented to you during a run for example, or during a bike ride. But you also can set silent alarms that will vibrate you to wake you up in the morning, you can rearrange and turn on, and off widgets and applications. You actually do this in the Garmin Connect and Garmin Express apps. And then you can also choose custom watch faces for your vivoactive.

But you know that’s the cool stuff unfortunately I did run into a few problems with it disconnecting with my phone, and then not immediately being able to find a GPS signal. also I couldn’t find out how to adjust the brightness, yes it has a backlight but I wanted the display to be brighter in general, and just couldn’t get there not a huge deal though.

right down to it should you buy the vivoactive, and the answer is that it depends clearly if you’re in the market for a GPS watch, and you want activity tracking features as well, yes you should look into the vivoactive. it’s one of the best devices in this category.

 

the vivoactive is still really a great fitness tracker, and gps watch and it’s definitely worth your consideration, and like I said it’s only getting smarter and been one of the top rated fitness smartwatches as the connect IQ platform grows, so look into this.

Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80 review What You Need To Know About UW80

2
Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80


Doing a small overview on the Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80, the watch looks very similar to UWEAR in terms of design, and technical features as well, and personally I don’t see any difference between these tow time pieces. they both are smart sports watches, and featuring integrated navigation system, and powerful battery life, real-time body condition monitor, location and trail sharing, and various sports modes, but to be honest with you, the both watches are messing something very important in the design side, and elegance. I don’t know what is it, but I feel like the manufacture didn’t consider the design, as one of the three highly important factors in today smart watches, before lunching this watches.



Technical features:

Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80. With built-in GPS marks your starting point and tracks the distance, speed and space when you are hiking, even when your smart phone is not around. Aiwako UW80 will guide you back to where you set off, so you will never need to worry about getting lost. That’s why I think this watch is most likely to be a hiking, and fishing sport watch or something like that, than been a fitness watch. You know fitness passionate are highly sensitive to their style mode, and unfortunately that’s what this watch had missed out. 

This watch is IP68 which mean, it is fully waterproof, and has an always-on technology, A very powerful battery 450mAh, with more than fifteen days on watch-mode, seven days on usage mode, and with the constant GPS usage the battery life can stand up to 20 hours. of course the manufacture declared that it can last more than that, but logically these are the numbers that can take effect in normal cases, because there is no why to get an exact data about how long a smart device battery can stay. it always depends on usage.

Bluetooth and connectivity of Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80:

we have also a Bluetooth 4.2,  which is an advanced version which allows you to make different connections with lower energy consumption. and the Strap Material is made from Environmental Silicone Rubber, and It fits 5.5″-9.3″ wrist circumference.

The Aiwako UW80 has a built in heart rate monitor uses a very sophisticated technology called photo-plethysmography, which detects your pulse without discomfort from a chest strap.



SOS FUNCTION AND SOFTWARE:

Hiking alone could be fun, but sometimes things Go wrong and the fun trip could be highly risky. That’s why it’s important to let your friends know where you are in case anything dangerous happens. Hiking smartwatch Aiwako UW80 allows you to share your location with your family and friends using its free app.

And of course you can use the location share feature, for other purposes as well if you want that, but the main idea as I’ve already said is for safety reasons.

By setting up your custom SOS buttons on your UW84, your watch will notify all your friends to help you out as soon as possible, when you’re in danger.

with a full Compatibility with Android 4.4, iOS 8.0 and above system, the UW84 smart watch is the best triple-positioning system that offer accurate running tracking and outdoor navigation. It marks your starting point and tracks the distance, speed and space when you are hiking, if you’re someone who don’t like the habits of charging the watch every night, and still want the have all your smart features in your wrist, then most probably this watch is what you need to have on your hands.

Ticwatch E review What You Need To Know

2
Ticwatch E


So the Ticwatch E“, there’s technically two models, the S Sport, and the E version. Which is the cheaper of the two.

you can wear it with every single outfit. Unlike some of the brighter versions that they have for the S model it’s just versatile, and that’s what makes it so good.

of course it being so cheap. It’s primarily made of plastic, and it’s got a silicone Bin, which means it won’t crack over time, and it doesn’t feel like Cheap toy watch. it obviously doesn’t have the metals, or premium materials that other smartwatches have. but when you look at the price I think that Ticwatch E is very good wearable to buy. and for me smartwatches are all about how it performs. of course how it looks. but Smartwatches have to be cheap because I feel you replace them every-time depending on the technology sophistication, and it’s something relevant to the style, that’s mean you should always have more than one style, and color.



 

***NEW***

 

On the other side of introducing Android wear 2.0, we lose the fabled tickle strip which was one of the coolest sounding names from last year, and it was a pressure-sensitive strip on the side, which you could scroll through the menu system. everything is interfaced into the watch, and it is fully touch sensitive, and going through everything even when you’re multitasking running a couple apps, thanks to the media tech processors everything hums along perfectly fine.

It’s smooth and fluid, exactly how I think an experience on a Smartwatch should be. Unlike many watches that I looked at last year it’s got a 1.4 inch OLED display which means it has an always-on function as something that is super useful, and that’s something that an Apple watch which is $400, $500, or $6 hundred dollars still can’t do.



and I think it’s one of the primary reasons why I have a watch on its to tell the time nice despite, it’s being only a hundred and sixty bucks, it still doesn’t skimp out on the heart rate monitor, or GPS so all people that want to use this for working out, you can use it Without any problems.

Note:

I would like to mention it’s also ip67 certified that’s both for the S, and the E, so no matter how much he sweats, and this still kicks on like It’s day one.

connectivity and storage:

TICWATCH has passed on cellular connectivity that’s both to reduce cost as well as conserve battery life, it does have 4 GB. on-board storage though, so if you want to download songs to this, you don’t have to bring your corresponding phone. listen to music, and it’s nice to be disconnected, and not get text message notifications all the time. and there is also one thing to mention which is the phone call are available only for android devices now, it might be some update in the future, but this is the actual compatibility.



battery consumption:

Ticwatch E



I think that’s actually a bit of a plus, and probably the last thing that you’re wondering about is battery life. and the one thing that I’ll knock about the TICWATCH. actually that goes for most smart watches in general, proprietary charger if you lose this guy it’s game over. Just to be on the safe side.

would Probably charge it every single night if you’re a super wearable user, but if you’re a light user only check the time, and may be a couple messages from time to time, you should be able to squeeze around two days of usage just be Sure to have the charger with you, if you want to top it up throughout the day.

 

and talking about the battery, here are some tips you must consider If you meet abnormal battery capacity, like sudden drop or short battery life:




charge the watch more 2hrs before you start to use it. And use the watch till battery empty and charge it up to full for 1-3cycles, the battery capacity indicator will be on right status. 

 

 

the ticwatch line-up consists of a few models, but the E, or Express as it’s sometimes known, is the cheapest in the line up. and that doesn’t mean it’s a poor experience, absolutely far from it I have been staggered by how good this actual device is. the watch face isn’t dominated by printed dials, or loud colors.
this simple black model, is it’s nice and sleek, and it goes well with just about any outfit, which is also a nice bonus. and the strap itself can be swapped out. unlike the S model if you want that, a little bit more customization unlike a few watches that I had to choose between the size as well is quite a big bonus.

it’s not much bigger than a normal watch face, so it does mean a smaller battery. but it does result in a more comfortable wear for long periods, especially if you use it in your hands, for work for instance the day. and as a standalone device, I think it’s absolutely superb straight out of the box, where 2.0 runs nice and smooth mean app scrolling taps and swipes all nice. and responsive which is exactly what you want, with a SmartWatch.
the big surprise for me, was just how good the main user experience has been especially for the price of $150. I thought I’d be experiencing some slowdowns crashes, and even minor bugs. but honestly it’s been an absolute dream come true.

screen itself gets nice, and bright. so even in bright sunlight it’s easy to read, and obviously being responsive to touches, it’s often a major problem with smartwatches marketed as affordable for our budget, and that is not a problem here. of course the touch screen means, there isn’t much need for loads of buttons, and the single hardware button, is the power sleep button, Google assistant button, and menu button.

brick with this little 300 milliamp hour battery, and it can go from near 0% to 100 in absolutely no time. so there’s no worries if you want to give it a little bit a juice throughout the day. with the odd bit of Bluetooth connectivity for the old push notification say for instance.
even when it’s in airplane mode, you can still use the GPS, and almost every other feature. which is where I recommend doing so to preserve the battery life. once you turn off the always-on display, you’ll increase the time between charges a little bit. but considering just how quickly charges, if you do need a quick blast, then you can get a bit more lifespan.

another major benefits this watch, and Android wear in general, is the connectivity to the Google Play stor, which means, you can download a raft of popular apps, such as Spotify, and Google Play Music. and with four gig of on-board storage, you can save some of your playlists for listening via bluetooth headphones, or even get this via the onboard speakers.
one thing I will say is a ticwatch app, it’s a little bit basic, and it is almost an exact replica of the Apple smart watch app. you can see your steps distance, and workout stats, if you want but that’s about it.

the thing is that price point here means I’m incredibly impressed. simply wanted SmartWatch that would track how I’m getting on. i was on my run for instance, and I’ve come away with appreciation for a relatively new tech brand. I think if you’re in the market for your first SmartWatch like I was, and don’t want to completely break poket, then the ticwatch E, could be a great intro to the Android wear ecosystem. with smooth operation being the major standout feature here.

and Now thanks for being here, i think we’ve covered more than 85% of the Ticwatch E features. I hope the review was helpful for you, and if it is please make sure to share it with your friends, because that’s they only way to donate us, and helping others got answers to their questions about Ticwatch E.

LG Watch Style Review Tic-Tac Reviews

1
LG watch style


when Google launched Android 2.0, they also announced two brand-new smartwatches coming from LG, the LG watch sport ,and the LG watch style, both watches have armed with the needs to be among the best high end pieces. and because, I believe that the Sport version is more powerful than style, that’s why in this review I’ll only focus on the style version , and I’m sure this review will give you a clear idea about the sport version too.

basic features of LG watch style:

unlike the watch sport which comes with LTE GPS, and more.. the style comes with only the bare minimum, this makes it so that the body of the style is incredibly thin, not as thin as others like the Zen watch, but thin enough that I constantly had to push my sweatshirt out of the way to see it. Well” there is one thing that differentiates the LG watch style, when comparing it to most Android wear smartwatches, is its size weighing in at, only 46 grams, which makes you forget the watch is even on your wrist.

LG watch style



the watch’s hardware and LG watch style of the body

The LG style’s body is made out of stainless steel, while the underside is made out of plastic so that the watch can wear off. the charge on the right side of the style, is where the digital crown can be found. this works as a home flash power button as well as a scroll wheel. so you can navigate through the interface well it does the job nicely, I do feel like the digital crown is almost too small, obviously it was made to match, the overall design of the style but with it being so small it is sometimes easier to just swipe on.

”<<<LG Watch Style Smartwatch with Android>>>”

LG watch style

The LG watch style, comes with one Google’s leather mode watch bands, these are great as they make the job of swapping out bands incredibly easy, simply slide the latch found on the other side of the watch band, and remove it.

unfortunately as this is genuine leather. the band itself is a little stiff when you first get the style, but over time it will break in. and become softer while wearing it. now back to the watch itself running Android 2.0 the style runs as smooth as butter. it’s sometimes faster to just pull out your phone that interact with your Smart Watch, but it is fast enough that these situations are much less common. you still access all of your notifications by swiping up on the screen, but all of your notifications can now be found by pressing on the home button, and that’s another big change with Android wear 2.0, you get a version of the Google Play Store built into the watch as well as standalone apps, having to have your phone around for data does pretty much everything else on its own.



these updated apps with standalone capabilities, also make using the style much better than those with previous versions of Android wear.

LG watch style

Google assistant assisting, can answer your questions, set reminders, and so much more.

and it’s launched by holding down the digital crown for just a second, and responses that it gives though will be in written form, as the LG watch style doesn’t have built-in speakers. the biggest downside of using Google assisting on wear, is that you are already waiting a second for it to launch, and then another second for it to load, then once you’ve asked your question the response can take up to 8 seconds to show up, this might not be the everytime case

But you should consider it to be taken place, if you are in android wear user.

Technical performance of the LG Style:

  1. It’s a Snapdragon wear with 2100 CPU.
  2. 512 megabytes of RAM.
  3. and a 240 MILAMP battery power.

finally I can say: The LG style basically is for notifications, and alerts. yes you can still launch all the apps that you’ve downloaded onto the watch, and do basic Google searches, but the smartwatch LG style, wasn’t meant for much more than that. thankfully it’s a lot like the Google pixel, in this way it’s a basic Smart-Watch but it does most things almost perfectly, and has consistent performance.

Fossil Q Marshall G2 Android Wear Detailed Review

Fossil Q marshall


The Fossil Q Marshall gen 2 Android wear, this Smart-Watch is part of fossils second generation of Android wear devices. As this has succeeded the fossil Q founder, which was released last year.

The Q Marshall comes in a variety of configurations, but the smoke stainless steel supposed to be the most popular of the various configurations that are offered. this is not an unboxing review, that’s why I’m not going to dive deeply on what’s inside the box, but the first thing that will catch your mind when you open it, is there are not too many Unnecessary things inside it, like what other brands are doing now.

OTHER ARTICLES:

fossil Q Marshall



Hardware and design specifications of FOSSIL Q MARSHAL:

Under the hood, fossil Q Marshall watch features a Qualcomm processor, which is certainly an improvement over the Intel CPU, that was featured in last year’s Q founder. This new processor is not only faster, but also more power efficient.

So far the battery life has been really impressive,Taking a look at the exterior Hardware of the device, we have a 45 millimeter case, a built-in speaker, and microphone, and a conductive magnetic charger on the bottom, which makes charging really easy. The display of the device still features the controversial flat tire design, but that doesn’t really bother too much as the bezels around the screen are pretty thin, and the watch itself isn’t too thick.

Fossil Q marshall

The displays brightness can be adjusted, and it features an acceptable pixel density. I don’t know if this is just an illusion but the fossil Q Marshall, seems a lot sleeker, and stylish than the Q founder from last year.

This watch feels like, a quality timepiece, and I think that is the core competency that fossil is going for, when designing this device. They have successfully been able to make an Android wear device that is truly unique when compared to its competition. The crown feels really solid and clicky, which I appreciate and the links on the bracelet are smooth and refined, and the buckle is very solid.



Fossil Q marshall

Now if you just want to change up the bracelet, there’s no need to worry, because the Q marshal is compatible with all 22 millimeter straps.

Moving to the software experience on this device:

fossil Q marshall

fossil Q marshal features Android wear as its operating system, which is compatible with both, Android, and IOS, smartphones. Now due to some limitations of iOS the device has more available features when paired with Android devices, once paired with your smartphone, you will see that your Android wear compatible apps will be automatically visible on your watch. Some of my favorites include Spotify, google, maps, and google calendar, the device allows you to easily change watch faces. And 22 individual watch faces are included with the ability to download many more from google.

SEE ALSO:

 

With this device you will be able to track your activity, including steps, Distance, and calories burned.

It would take an extremely long article to be able to go over all the features contained within Android wear, but let’s summarize, and say that it’s an advanced Smart-Watch platform, that is constantly improving thankfully the Q marshal features. Outstanding internal, and external hardware, so it

Should be able to accommodate software upgrades, and improvements for many years to come, so in conclusion I really like the fossil Q marshal I think this device is good for people who are already used to wearing traditional watches, and want to upgrade into the Smart-Watch world.

 



Unlike other offerings out there, such as the Apple watch the fossil Q Marshall, features a more traditional and stylish design. This device takes practicality, and style, and combines them into a single package. Well it does contain activity tracking, and fitness features, I do not think this watch is the best for athletes to wear considering its weight, the device isn’t necessarily heavy but it also isn’t a feather, and could be a nuisance for athletes to wear this watch.

However is perfect for casual occasions wear dress watches would typically be worn, so with that being said I’m now going to conclude my review of the fossil Q Marshall.

Garmin vivoactive HR GPS Smart Watch, Regular fit

0


Hi” dears, first of all, the Garmin vivoactive HR, is a gps sport watch activity  and sleep tracker, All right so the Garmin vivoactive HR there is a lot to talk about with this device, so let’s first take on design, and then we can talk about what it actually does, and how it works. 

If you want to learn more about its companion app called Garmin Connect. In terms of design, the vivoactive HR has an interesting yet oddly familiar look to it.   

 <<grmin vivoactive HR Deal with FREE Shipping on amazon>>

garmin vivoactive HR



it reminds me of a smaller more comfortable version of the Fitbit surge, or a slightly larger version of the Garmin vivoactive HR, it’s really nice, and it’s comfortable, but there’s no way around the fact that it definitely looks like, a sport watch at all times. Now it does have traditional watch style bands that are removable so you can get different colors, and whatnot. But again, it doesn’t have that style element of the Fenix 3. And it won’t be as durable either, because it’s mostly plastic beyond that however the hardware side is pretty much on point.

It’s got Garmin’s Chroma display, that is beautiful and it’s large in full color, and backlit, and sunlight-readable which is awesome and then it’s also a touchscreen, and I do believe it’s better, and more responsive than the touchscreen we saw on the first generation vivoactive. The lens on top of the display, is mineral crystal, so eventually you’re going to get smaller scratches on that in the bezel. But I think it will be mostly cosmetic stuff.

garmin vivoactive HR

So aside from using the touch screen, you will also be using two physical buttons. Basically a back button that also serves as a way to lock the device, and turn it off, And then a start button which is also how you enter settings, and start a workout.



Now if you turn the watch over, there’s a built-in risk based heart rate sensor, that is running both 24/7, and during workouts. though if you want you can also pair with it an external aunt plus heart rate sensor, the wrist heart rate sensor is the same one we saw on a bunch of other Garmin devices, it’s good for endurance sports like running, and certain interval training workouts, but anything with a lot of muscle flexion in your arm, it won’t be good for so things like weight training, and CrossFit. 

you’ll probably want that external heart rate sensor, also that built-in heart rate monitor will be switched off during swimming, workouts, and unfortunately the vivoactive HR will not work with the HRM swim or HRM tri heart rate monitors for your heart rate during swimming, so that’s not going to be an option with that. I really like having the built-in sensor I think it’s better gauges your activity level throughout the day, and you can see more accurate calories burn numbers, so it’s nice to have that 24/7 heart rate sensor.

garmin vivoactive HR

Battery life of Garmin vivoactive HR.

Five days on average, that’s what you can expect even though Garmin says it can be up to 8 days in Smart-Watch mode. I’ve never quite got there. This will obviously all depend on how active you are, and how many sensors you have running, and then how often you sync it. Which by the way it uses Bluetooth to pair with your Android iOS, or Windows 10 device, and it will sync also via USB to your PC, or Mac. so a lot of options to

you there in terms of sensors it does have GPS, and GLONASS which is the Russian form of GPS so you’re double covered, but the more sensors you have running, the more you’re going to tax that battery.

Three things you can do with the smart-watch vivoactive HR:

1-it’s your activity and sleep tracker, so it has all of the features of your more advanced fitness tracker. you do get a daily steps goal, and Garmin automatically adjust that goal based on your recent activity level, so that goal remains attainable to you, and keeps you motivated it’s pretty cool, and then you do get daily alarms both vibration, and audible ones, and move reminders in a move bar.

2-the vivoactive HR is also a GPS sport watch that is in constant beast mode and by that I mean, it supports a lot of activities you’ve got running indoor, and out cycling indoor, and out pool swimming not open water swimming unfortunately. you also have golf Garmin has over 40,000 courses that you can choose from, and then you have water sports, such as paddle boarding, and rowing and indoor rowing. Snow sports such as skiing, and snowboarding. And then you can also create your own sport profiles as well.



It tracks all of the metrics you’d expect basically anything you’d associate with that sport. it works with external sensors such as heart rate monitors, and speed and cadence sensors. And if you’re looking for a GPS watch or a running water, or whatever, the vivoactive pretty much has you covered.

3-It’s a Smart-Watch that is actually. Very helpful, it relays all of your phone notifications, so as soon as you get an alert, it’s going to show up right on your wrist. assuming you’re within 30 feet of your phone, but then you also have a little notifications widget to check all of your older alerts, and that’s anything that shows up in your phone, not just text messages, could be a Facebook message whatever. In addition to that it shows the weather and your calendar, and then has music controls.

Though the iOS ones are not quite perfect it’s only stored music on iOS, and then you can also control the Garmin VirB action camera, which is a huge plus if you ask me. It does have access to Garmin Connect. IQ for other apps, and widgets and more custom watch faces. For me the Smart Watch features, or basically exactly what I wanted enough, so that it was helpful but not too much.

It was distracting, so that’s for the most part, what you can expect from the vivoactive HR, but If I’ve asked, what would be the changes that might make me feel much addicted to this smart piece, my answer will be based on the following six main features:

Number one: I wish we had open water swimming with it that would be nice.

Number two: HRM swim and HRM try support heartrate while you’re swimming would be cool.

Number three: internal storage for Music, if it actually had the music stored on the device, so you didn’t need to bring your phone to control your music number four, I wish you could edit the support profiles in the data screens, for those four profiles within Garmin connect, as opposed to only on the watch.

Number five: it’d be great to get a tougher more resistant display on it.

number six: training features: I wish It had some of the training features, that you see on the forerunners, and the higher end GPS watches, that would be like vo2 max, and certain like training components that you just don’t have on the vivoactive, but not with standing that stuff.

There is a metal round frame on the amazefit smartwatch that is beautifully polished and looks quite fancy. The front is filled with a scream, and it is round but has a small cut off piece at the bottom for antennas apparently, and there are a few antennas in this watch.

The screen size is 1.30 4 inches in diameter, and the resolution is 320 by 320. The screen is quite large, and it has a backlight. The technology used for it is transflective; means, that you can still use backlight at night or dark indoors, but on a bright day or even under the direct sunlight the backlight goes off.

Rather than trying to fight the Sun, and the transflective screen is perfectly visible under proper viewing angles as if the data was printed on the screen. This looks better under direct sunlight than any other SmartWatch. Get it HERE…

The transflective screen is a great idea. It might seem dull right out of the box, but then you will appreciate it. It is well visible at night, and perfectly visible at daytime. thumbs up” it is a full-color screen as well, which is better than the black, and white pebble for example, and faster to look better than the color eating as well.

The screen is very usable and is also always-on it is well visible without back-light, so it doesn’t drain the battery in any significant way. It is covered with a protective glass, and that from what I can tell, it is not easily scratched.

The battery life of this watch is then directly dependent on the screen technology used, this watch lasts much longer than any other Smart-Watch on a single charge. The proprietary operating system used, seems to aid this as well. Get it here with free international shipping



This small 280 milliamp-hour battery, will red notifications, and GPS turned off lasts for up to 12 days, this is great result with active notifications it lives up to 5 days, under maximum load with turned on GPS and Wi-Fi constant, heartbeat measurements, and Bluetooth music, it will last up to 35 hours this means charging a watch once a week, or even more rare than that this is much more comfortable than daily charging.

The amazefit smartwatch is built on a similar to other architecture:

  • The dual-core 1.2 ghz CPU.
  • And 512 Mgb. of RAM.
  • And 4 Gibts of flash memory.

But it is not the entire where it is proprietary, this doesn’t cripple the main Smart-Watch functions, and with firmware updates that new features will be added or even app support. Eventually, this is more a fitness tracker, than a smartwatch. so the fitness functionality of the device is emphasized. Get it here with free international shipping

It has a rather precise laser heartbeat sensor, its own GPS receiver to record tracks, and movement when you run, or ride a bike, for example, a full-fledge comm pass is also available. The watch has iP67 water-resistant, so you can shower with it, or workout under heavy rain, but I would rather not swim a long dive with it.

Also here are the oldies, but Goldie domitor, gyro accelerometer, etc.. wireless a Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, Wi-Fi, and on-board GPS GLONASS receiver, Bluetooth is obviously required to connect to your phone, but can also be used to directly connect the amazefit smartwatch to a stereo Bluetooth headset to listen to music.

This can be done without the phone, and the music is then stored on the 4 gigs of the internal memory of the watch. This is enough for even the longest runs and bike routes. The built-in Wi-Fi can update the firmware, and upload the stats to the mi account without the need for the smartphone connection, as well as place some internet radio, which is cool. And you can also record your run track or bike ride without using the phone.

The built-in GPS is then used to record speed route elevation and all other GPS dependent stats. You can leave the phone at home and basically have everything you need in the watch. The screen brightness can be adjusted in three steps or less, and automatic the brightness is far from high but is really plenty enough; since you really need it only in the complete darkness, when there is any other light source, you won’t need the backlight at all. Get it here with free international shipping

The watch can display whether this is another great feature. it has it is much more intuitive to look at your weather on a watch, rather than a smartphone, somehow more natural I have no idea why.?



 

Notifications from amazefit smartwatch:

This is one of the most important things on a Smart-Watch. In the supplied app you can choose the apps that will push the notifications to your watch, and the list is really unlimited, any installed app can do it.

The Android API is used, so no additional support on the watch site is required. anything in the notification tray can be displayed on the amazefit smartwatch properly with app icon, and everything used mail notifications both Gmail and ordinary SMS calls, with the ability to answer them or mute Facebook, and the messenger, Viber, WhatsApp, really anything even the long messages arrive intact, and are scroll-able within if you open the message or the notification on the phone.

Though it will disappear from the watch, the notifications immediately appear on the screen plus the watch vibrates, which is handy, and the calls notify with the long continuous vibration. The watch face can be changed either from the left, or right on the watch itself, there is a night mode where you can turn all of the notifications, and vibrations off, but sleeping stats and other sensors will still function.

Design, and style of the Xiaomi amazefit:

The amazefit smartwatch is rather big but looks adequate even on a smaller hand. It doesn’t look like a technic gadget, but rather looks like a slightly sporty fashion accessory, which it really does hitting the spot exactly. The watch weight 53 grams which is much more than seven grams of the knee bent too, but really not more than any ordinary watch.

The bands are made from an extremely pleasant silicone, and looks nice there are a few colors already announced, and surely there will be a whole bunch of other bands introduced both, original and third-party, also the mentioned 22 millimeter standards strap fitting, will fit any 22 millimeter strap exactly like the Huawei watch 2 classic edition.

The watch design is universal enough to totally change the style, and feel of the watch by changing just the strap. Original straps also have a convenient quick release, and change system, so changing a vent is very easy from what I can tell, assuming you will be able to see this watch on many wrists, it doesn’t have any obvious flaws, and the proprietary platform doesn’t harm it too much, and it does all the useful Smart-Watch stuff.

Again thanks for been here, this almost 85% of the features, but I think I’ve covered all the most important stuff.

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Review Why It’s Almost the Best Smartwatch

3


Samsung’s Gear smartwatches’ evolution, has been an interesting thing to observe and perceive from the first watch (Samsung Gear) until now with the Gear S3 Frontier. But this last one it stand out from the crowd, because, it takes all the things we liked about the other Gears and refined them to build a wrist watch that gives an obvious answer to the most of our questions.

This Gear is a direct message to people who like traditional timepieces, but

Samsung Gear S3 US Version with Warranty


they want to benefit from the world of technology.

If you want to use Gear S3 Frontier as a daily driver with other manufacturer’s phones, the setup process won’t be painful but there are several apps necessary to install before you can use the watch.

This is a lot more involved, than setting up an Android wear, or Pebble watch for instance as you’ll be tight in the Samsung services like s-health.



GEAR S3 FRONTIER AMOLED SCREEN REFLECTION:



The construction on the frontier is fantastic excellent build quality. This is maybe the best wearable hardware I’ve ever handled. comparing it to Huawei watch Android wear, the frontier feels a lot less like a gadget. it doesn’t broadcast its geekery nearly as much as past Samsung efforts, and this is the best AMOLED screen I’ve personally used on a watch.

It doesn’t handle direct Sun, as well as ePaper,or digital ink solutions, but it’s well readable in bright conditions it almost passes the SoCal driving test. we’re at an angle reflections can still be troublesome, though, the battery saving option of disabling the screen, means you’ll have to move your hand off the steering wheel, to see content.

SOME IMPORTANT SPECS:

Operation System: Android 4.4 higher, iPhone 5 with iOS 9.0 and above.

CPU Speed: 1GHz.

Bluetooth: v4.2

RAM: 1.5GB



Screen: 1.3” super AMOLED full color display.

Two buttons on the side are used as a back and a home button, the latter also doubles as the app drawer shortcut went on the main watch phase. The dial around the screen turns to navigate through pinned apps to the right, and notifications to the left, and then the touchscreen can be used to swipe, or pull down a status shade.

The Gear S3 Frontier is refined, but it still very much continues the notion that a Smart-Watch should perform like a mini phone on your wrist. I’d prefer Samsung move to a three buttons layout giving us a selection button.

DESIGN AND BUTTONS FUNCTION:

There’s a tactile disconnect between using this great clicky wheel, and then smudging up the screen to make a selection, or hitting these small three menus wedged to the side of a circle. the ability to navigate fully through hardware would be appreciated maybe, even disabling the touchscreen at some specific times.

Gear S3 Frontier

Navigation isn’t difficult but it takes a while to program the muscle memory for where every feature setting an option, like a checking heart rate for example. From the main watch face you hit the bottom button, and click wheel to s-health, where you touch the screen to activate then click wheel five menus over to the heart-rate section, and then it’ll take a reading this is a phone grade software, and the gear routinely rides that line between functionality and time.

check out the Samsung Gear Series3 Frontier on Amazon

it’s impressive that we can do this much from a watch, but many of these interactions would be faster from your phone. further complicating matters Samsung doesn’t really fully support other phones.



NOTIFICATIONS AND ALERTS OF GEAR S3 FRONTIER:

notifications are delivered and calls are alerted but any action or reply you take, will be sent back to your phone. One batch that also seemed to hold true for the Bluetooth alert, one of my biggest frustrations with Android wear, is it doesn’t notify when it lost the Bluetooth connection.

The gear S3 Frontier will, but it could sometimes take over a minute of time. For example, if you accidentally leave your phone somewhere, the watch will notify you when you’re out of range.

Lastly, Samsung advertises an always-on display and up to three days of battery life, you just can’t have both at the same time. individually each statement is true but if you want that run time, you need to disable the screen.

Gear S3 Frontier

The frustrating aspect of having to perform a gesture to see the time, somewhat defeats the convenience of wearing a watch. That said with the screen auto-dimming we easily reached three full days with moderate use notifications, and a couple workouts.

So, let’s wrap this up where does that leave As with the Samsung gear S3 frontier, I love this hardware but the recommendation on this watch requires two critical issues to be discussed.

The first: This is a tough recommendation, if you don’t own a Samsung phone, the experience is hamstrung when tackling notifications, and calls. you’ll end up paying for features you won’t be able to use.

for how good speech-to-text is on a cheap pebble or Android wear, it’s a shame that Samsung couldn’t really translate the gear experience over to other devices.

It’s a walled garden approach, I don’t appreciate don’t punish me for not owning a Samsung phone, instead, impress me with how good this accessory is, and maybe I’ll consider a Samsung phone in the future.



The second issue, was a little more philosophical if your idea of what a Smart-Watch should be is migrating as much smartphone functionality as you can to a small screen, then the Gear S3 Frontier is hands down the best Smart-Watch on the market.

However, if your idea of a Smart-Watch is targeting at a glance information in the most streamlined way possible, that a watch should complement a phone and not replace it.

Then the gear can feel downright cumbersome as this review is tempered by my personal quest to replace my pebble, I’ll have to keep searching which is a shame, because, I absolutely love this hardware.

Apple Watch S3 FULL Detailed Review

11


The apple-watch S3, is the Apple’s first smartwatch that can be used entirely without your iPhone. It comes with a built-in LTE cellular connectivity, which allow to use it anywhere you wish.

 

apple-watch S3



covering everything you need to know from the design display for form ants only feature is battery life stellar connectivity and, so much more..

Galaxy Buds, Bluetooth True Wireless Earbuds

Even though, it’s called the apple-watch S3, it’s not Apples third generation smartwatch but it’s actually apples fourth generation watch.

So, the first one was just called Apple watch, and was announced in 2014, and then released in 2015, then in 2016 Apple released two models the series one, and the series two, and in 2017 we have the series 3.

The series 3 comes in two models, there’s a GPS only model, and a GPS plus cellular model, which is the one that we’re going to review in this ARTICLE.

 



 

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular (Refurbished) ”cheap Price ON AMAZON”

apple-watch S3

In my opinion, every new product from every company should come with three major changes from the previous model, that’s like the marketing tactics of some companies, but not all of them.

 

1- The design changes: Obviously everyone wants fresh design with each new generation.

2- Performance: Enhancing the technical specs and performance is something that the users care about, because, they already know the first version and maybe the have some issues with it, like it slow down or the battery drains quickly. So, promising different specs always help the company to convince their costumers to buy the new one.

3- New Features: Obviously, the new model will attract people more if it has new features. Because, you’ll pay extra money so would want to have different experience with your new watch.

 



 

So, starting out for number one we have five main design changes with the Apple watch series 3, even though the series 3 looks almost identical to the series 2, and series 1, and the original Apple from back, in 2015 there are actually 5 minor design changes in this model.

Buy Now Price” Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular

1- RED CROWN: The first one would be the red crown, now we only get this with GPS plus cellular models of the SERIES 3, not the GPS only models.

And the whole purpose of this, is to distinguish the models from the other ones and there’s no functionality reason behind this red crown. now some people like it some don’t, I personally don’t.

I think it limits the use of certain watch bands, like the green ones or even the blue ones if you mainly use black or white bands, then this would actually look pretty nice but otherwise it would obviously depends on the band.

2- DESIGN BUILD MATERIAL:You can only get the stainless steel model or the Apple watch edition with the cellular models, which are a bit more expensive than last year. So, if you just want to get the GPS only model that one only comes in aluminum.

3- DESIGN THICKNESS: Even though the case of the watch has remained the same sensor bar on the bottom, is actually thicker now. So, Apple says that it’s about 2 sheets of paper thicker, but honestly they were using some pretty thick sheets of paper to measure this”!.

Anyway, you won’t notice this on your wrist, but from a design perspective, the Apple watch should be getting thinner, not thicker especially since it’s already a fairly thick wearable.

 

4- THE BASE:This new watch base called the Explorer watch face, and this is by the way exclusive to the LTE Apple watch series 3. So, you don’t have this on other Apple watch models, and when it comes to the font of course you can customize this further to your liking, and you can change the colors and add complications and so on…

5- EXTRA COMPATIBLE BANDS: Even though, this one applies to pretty much all Apple watch models, we do get a few new bands. So, we get a new band called sport loop, which I actually really love.  And you get this when you buy a new series 3 Apple watch.

You have the option together with another band, which made from the same nylon as the woven nylon band. it’s actually one of the most comfortable Apple watch bands that I’ve ever used. it’s right on pair with the letter ones, and it’s also in credit light and it’s also water-resistant.

Then you’ll also get some brand-new colors for the existent watchbands, but the sport loop itself is definitely a welcome change.
