Choosing your SmartWatch smartly

Specialized Watch or A General Purpose One ?

The first thing you should ask yourself is why do you want a smartwatch in the first place.

The answer to this question will help you identify which smartwatch is for you.

If you want one for upgrading your sleep, you should search for a specialized smartwatch with sleep and heart sensors.
If your need is for exercising and fitness, then by all means don't go for the general smartwatches, look for one which takes seriously your steps, heart rate and the rest of your fitness needs.

But if you want the smartwatch for the general reasons of getting notifications and other cool functionality then, go over the list of functionalities a smart watch might have, and mark the ones which are necessary for you, these will guide you to the right watch for you.

Phone Locator - Will cause your phone to ring so you can find it easily
Text messages - Notification and answering back
Social Media - Notifications and replying
Music Control - Browse between songs, volume control
App Eco System - So will have the option to download additional apps to your watch
