6 Smartwatches To Match Your Lifestyle
In 2016, smartwatches proved they're no longer just a cool gimmick. With pieces from Apple, Android, Samsung, and countless others, you may be a little overwhelmed with the amount of options you can choose from. We’ve compiled a list of the best smartwatches to fit your lifestyle, because a commuter and avid runner may require different specifications for their wristwear. Check it out below.
For the Commuter: Motorola Moto 360
The Moto 360 is one of the most good-looking, versatile smartwatches on the market. The casing houses an on-board battery that lasts over 24 hours, making it a perfect choice for commuters. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices, and doesn’t always need to be connected to a smartphone to still function properly.
For Runners: Garmin Forerunner 630
If you’re an avid runner and you’re seeking a running watch with basic smartwatch features, then the Garmin Forerunner 630 is for you. This touchscreen GPS running watch provides users with some of the most advanced running metrics you’ll ever see, from distance covered to recovery time and even lactate threshold.
For Professionals: Huawei Watch
Smartwatches are hard to incorporate into professional work environments, mainly because some look like plastic toys on your wrist. The Huawei Watch doesn’t compromise style though. Drawing inspiration from classic Swiss design, the timepiece is constructed of high-performance materials for a quality build. With its interchangeable watch bands, you can switch up looks for any event.
For the Explorer: Nixon Mission Smartwatch
What most people look for in a smartwatch is value. What can it do for them? How can it improve their lives? Most smartwatches do the same thing, but it's hard to find a truly rugged piece. This one's for the adventure seeker. Nixon’s Mission watch boasts 100-meter water-resistance, Gorilla Glass, and a stainless-steel bezel. This is a watch you can take anywhere without worrying if you’ll destroy it.
For Android Users: Samsung Gear S3
Samsung opens its smartwatch to all Android users with the Gear S3. The S3 features an overall better design than its predecessor and includes an updated battery. The brilliant rotating-bezel makes a return, and the watch features great fitness-tracking technology. There aren’t tons of apps available yet, but that’ll change sooner than later. Expect everything you love about the S2 and more.
For Daily Wear: Apple Watch 2
The Apple Watch has a great low-profile build about it: it’s light, it looks great, and it makes you forget it’s there – in a good way. With the second generation, Apple included vital upgrades: water-resistance, better battery, and better fitness tracking. This is a great watch for anyone and for any occasion (except scuba diving).
