How A Smartwatch Could Change Your Life

You are way off base if you believe that the only use for a smartwatch is to read messages and keep track of your steps.


A watch is a watch, but a smartwatch is so much more than that. These handy devices really do it all; from monitoring fitness to assisting in an urgent situation, they can do it all. It’s quite fascinating to delve into the history of the smartwatch and see how they have evolved. 

Here are some compelling arguments in favor of the widespread adoption of smartwatches.


They can help you with your fitness goals

Step counts are great if you are into pushing yourself physically through activities like walking or running, but your smartwatch is capable of so much more than that. By syncing your device with running apps such as Strava, you can go for a run or ride your bike without having to take your phone out of your pocket. Alternatively, there are apps such as 7 Minute Workouts that allow you to get a workout no matter where you are. You should also synchronize your music apps, such as Apple Music and Spotify, so that you can listen to your favorite songs while you exercise.

It can give you directions

Find your way around with directions displayed directly on your wrist! You will not have to keep pulling out your phone to check your location or following the map, only to run into everything along the way. Now both of those things are unnecessary! You can get turn-by-turn directions from your watch by downloading applications such as Google Maps. You can even get real-time notifications for public transportation with apps like Citymapper, and the Parking app can help you locate parking spaces in your area.

It can help you in an emergency

Additionally, smartwatches can be put to use in a crisis. There is a wide variety of precautionary measures available across brands. You have the option of either calling the emergency services or sending an SOS message to your loved ones, informing them that you are in need of assistance and providing them with your precise location. This can be an extremely helpful tool for ensuring the safety of elderly relatives or friends. In addition, using a button on your smartwatch is a lot less obvious and a lot quicker than using your phone in the same situation.

It keeps you communicating.

Keeping your laptop or tablet with you at all times in order to stay on top of your work or important events is a thing of the past. By downloading apps such as Outlook and Todolist onto your smartwatch, it will be able to notify you of upcoming meetings, emails, and items on your shopping list. Some can even do video calls too!

Control your playlist

The most annoying aspect of listening to music while traveling is that every time you want to switch the song, you have to remove your smartphone from your pocket, then select the songs that you want to listen to from the list that appears on the screen of your device. It can be a pain to have to go through the same steps again and again whenever your favorite song is missing from the playlist. If, on the other hand, you have a smartwatch on your wrist, you can switch to any song with just a few taps on the face of the watch.

While you are out there walking, you can easily navigate through all of the songs with the help of the smartwatch. You can even listen to your favorite songs using applications made by other companies.

Be aware of the weather.

When you are out in the wild, it is absolutely necessary for you to be aware of the current weather conditions in your region. To get a better idea of the upcoming weather, you might look to the news media for assistance; however, what if you are currently traveling? If you want to keep up with the weather forecast for your area, having a smartwatch that also has a GPS feature can be of great assistance to you. Now that you are aware of this information, you can take the necessary steps to get ready for the weather so that you do not have to cut short your trip and stay in a hotel because you were not adequately prepared for the harsh weather conditions.

Keep up to date with the news

Your smartwatch not only keeps you connected to other people who also have smartwatches, but it also keeps you connected to the outside world. There are a variety of highly developed smartwatches on the market today that include news snippet features. That you will from time to time receive notifications relating to the news is what this means. The purpose of these snippets is to give a general idea of what has transpired by summarizing the news in a few sentences.
