Best Smartwatches Of 2017
The best smartwatches will reflect some form of our personality. But one of the difficult tasks is to choose one among the various models designed by different companies. We know that there is a huge collection of smartwatches by top companies such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei, LG, and many. These smartwatches have been launched with great features and designs. These could make it difficult to select one of out them.
Here are some of the smartwatches that are expected to become the best smartwatches of 2017. All these smartwatches are available in all the stores. Hope this list will help you in easily selecting one for your wrist.
1. Apple Watch Nike+:
The looks of the Nike+ is designed the same as the remaining in the Apple family. Apple Nike Sports band is the biggest visual part of the Nike+ version. This band is soft and flexible which brings with it the comfortability to wear. The band is perforated with holes. There are two custom watch faces along with it which the feature is added in the Nike+ smartwatch.
The Nike Run Club app in the Nike+ allows you to track your running, as the name suggests. The smartwatch can measure distance, speed, and time of your run. This can be used for both indoor and outdoor purposes. It also can track our sleep. It has good GPS performance without startup lag and good heart-rate monitoring. Its battery contributes two full days maximum without draining its charge. While a long run will eat half the battery more than usual.
It is featured to have a great quality OLED display. But the thing is it lacks an always-on capability. You need to unlock the display that turns off after a certain time period to which it is set by the user. It has the capability to play offline music which you can listen to them with the headphones connected through Bluetooth Technology. The syncing case in the Nike+ isn’t always seamless. It has a flaw that it hasn’t any sharing options for other devices.
2. Apple Watch Series 2:
The Apple Watch Series 2 is virtually identical to its original version. It comes in same two sizes (38mm and 42mm), features a rectangular display, a digital crown control, and a single button on the side. There are also new Hermes models with exclusive straps and watch faces. There is a more capacious battery, there is a brighter screen, there is a faster processor, and there is GPS.
The Series 2 is also completely water-resistant down to 50m. It is designed to withstand the pressures of swimming. The S2 Watch processor is 50% faster than the original version. The Apple Watch Series 2 has a much brighter screen i.e., two times brighter than its previous versions. The S2 watch has a built-in GPS which includes GLONAS support. It is fast to pinpoint you from the iPhone soon after you disconnect it from your iPhone. It is a water resistant device which allows you to run in the rain or go swimming, take a shower or jump in a fountain.
3. Huawei Watch:
The new Huawei Watch is extremely similar, right down to its crown placement and stainless steel case. It’s a good look, but its starting price is Rs.23,355 and Android Wear operating system might be cause for pause. However, it has a longer battery life than most smartwatches, a sharp display, and a solid heart rate monitor gives the Huawei Watch an edge.
These Huawei watches are available in 6 models. They come in combinations of black, stainless steel, and rose gold-plated watch cases with black leather, steel link, stainless steel mesh, black-plated link, alligator-pressed brown leather, or rose gold-plated link bracelets. The prices range from Rs.23,345 to Rs.53,400 depending on your configuration.
4. Samsung Gear S3:
Samsung Gear S3 is compatible with both the Android and iOS smartphones. But the size of the Gear S3 has quite increased than the previous S2. This delivers better battery life, GPS, and a good clear display screen.
It’s not like the fitness trackers/sports watch to replace them with this. The lack of water-resistance and the app selection puts it behind the Apple Watch and Android Wear 2.0. Since these are more versatile.
However, its strong individual style, intuitive rotating bezel, and great battery life make it a huge competitor. Samsung’s impressive platforms such as S Health, the 3rd party apps aren’t essential for a fulfilling experience. These are featured on the Apple Watch too.
5. Garmin Vivoactive HR:
While the Apple Watch and the LG Watch Sport are great smartwatches. Their features include sports tracking. The Garmin Vivoactive HR is an amazing sports watch that’s more capable than a smartwatch.
It has dedicated GPS modes for running, cycling, swimming, golf and indoor gym work. The Vivoactive HR reports detailed metrics into Garmin Connect. It works with services such as Strava and RunKeeper. However, it offers to display notifications, weather forecast, and calendar details with alarming reliability.
Its low-resolution screen and chunky plastic body might not look so catchy. But its functionality is pure over form. The battery life can remain with you for around a week, even with all-day use along with a few workouts.
This collection of the best smartwatches of 2017 may help you in any way when you wish to have a smartwatch tied to your wrist.
