Top ten smart watches 2018 – how, and why? see the articles below
first of all, choosing the top ten smart watches 2018 is not an easy thing to do, and it can be really the top ten for some people, and for some others, it’s hard to figure out how it should be the best smart watch for them. I mean it depends on a number of factors. there are some points to mention, before getting to the details. we will only choose five classic styles, and five sport styles, to make the article valuable for the large amount of people; and we will built our list based on spec. techniques that the watch has covered, and the design made material without taking care of the tag price.
► Samsung Gear S3 Frontire Smartwatch
Unlike some of the other smartwatches in the market, the Gear S3 does not run on Android Wear, instead, it runs on Samsung’s own Operating System called Tizen. it is a daring step from Samsung to jump into the market with it’s own OS. but I think after a couple months of use it’s OK, and it did well. 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 So-Cal 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. and with its 4GB of internal storage the Gear S3 no longer have to rely to the data connection to listen to music.
we can not go far describing the whole features of this watch, I’m sure I have so many reasons to make it one of the Top ten smart watches 2018 if you’re interested to see more: click here to see our full review.
► Motorola Moto 360 Modern Timepiece Smart Watch
The Motorola Moto 360 Sport, dived to the market with all the necessary tools, to present itself as something that a High class, or middle, or even average consumer should consider if they want to buy a perfect smart watch. with its highly finished design, and premium made-in material, the Moto 360 Sport classified itself inside the top ten smart watches 2018 made specifically for men, or women, it’s easy to find the color, size, and style that fits you best. Because you deserve choice when it comes to what you wear on your wrist.
but as always, and like any product around there in the market, this time-piece has also a little weak point, which is the battery life. I know it’s something that bothers so many people, though it’s not a big issue because it still works very well. additionally the battery life is the what bothers all manufacturers, when it comes to smartwatch, and other smart devices that need these kind of stored energy.
it’s not easy as it looks for ordinary users, a powerful battery means, making the users’ security in danger. They can double, or treble the capacity of the battery life, and make it stay longer, but it’s highly risky for you as user.
additionally I should mention that despite being a watch that is built for active users, there is no way you can do multi-sport tracking on the watch. Something that is strange for a watch that is centered around sports. Last but not the least, the heart-rate sensor is somewhat unreliable.
thanks to its stable connectivity the Motorola Moto 360 sport allow you to stay connected and up to date with your phone by bringing you the notifications; messages, news, weather, and all what you need without constantly having to check your phone. the watch has a GPS built-in which allow you to Track your distance and pace right on your wrist.
- Meet your new workout partner.
- Get everything you need for your run—without the need for your phone.
- Track your performance with built-in GPS and stay fit with an incredibly accurate heart rate monitor.
- After your workout, read your Gmail, check the latest traffic, and receive Facebook updates, all thanks to the power of Android Wear.
- Moto 360 Sport. Choose the watch that’s in step with you.
finally the Motorola Moto 360 sport considering its name it’s addressed to active people, but it has some big issues in that side, and the problem is, there is no way you can do multi-sport tracking on the watch. Something that is so strange and unpractical. an additional sad fact about Moto 360 is the heart-rate sensor is somewhat unreliable.
- Comfort-ability wearing.
- practical design, simple and have a good look.
- Screen tech with a hybrid display for an easy reading in, out door.
- Heartrate monitor is not reliable
- Does not have multi-sport tracking
If you are still looking for something that is minimal, and does not cost much, and gets you the job done, then this Moto 360 is still one of the best in the market that you can buy. Sure, there are issues like I’ve mentioned above, but don’t expect a smartwatch without issues, you can’t found it on the market.
► Suunto Spartan Sport HR
The Suunto Spartan trainer is basically a GPS sport watch, with a few activity tracking, and Smart Watch 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.
The suunto Spartan has 80 sport modes per-installed in, which allow it to be ready for almost any kind of activity right out the box, without any installation requirement.
you can use it to navigate your route using its stable and accurate POI’s, breadcrumb view and digital compass, will make your trip very easy even to the newest areas that you haven’t visited before.
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.

► CASIO Smart Watch WSD-F20 Protrek Smart
The CASIO Smart Watch WSD-F20 is one of Top ten smart watches 2018, for people who use Google products and apps. It integrates with these (for texts, emails, etc).

finally this watch has surprisingly accurate fitness activities tracking, that seems to be better then most of smart watches in the market, but it’s more likely to be a watch for hiking/ bicycling/comping and fishing more than a fitness tracker.

Fossil Q Marshall G2:
The Fossil 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. that’s why we put it in our Top ten smart watches 2018 and obviously it deserve.
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.
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 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.
- notifications and touchscreen functionality for texts, calls, emails,
- app updates.
- Wear OS by Google connects your watch and smartphone using Bluetooth technology.
- With built-in activity tracking, including steps, distance, and calories burned.
- Automatically syncs to your phone so you can keep tabs on your activity and notifications without ever pushing a button.See full review
