Why Would I Need A Smartwatch?

Why Would I Need A Smartwatch? You might be asking this question so you can think about buying a Smartwatch for yourself. You already have a simple watch that can tell you time but you have never thought beyond the time. FYI, Smartwatch is really smart. It means we can do a lot more than a simple watch cannot do and it can do even more than an Android or an IOS device.

You need a smartwatch for Answering calls, fitness tracking, notifications and navigation are the main reasons you would buy a smartwatch. Most importantly, it looks professional when you see your smartwatch for notifications because looking at a phone during a meeting seems unprofessional.

I have seen a lot of people talking about smartwatches as a waste of money because they think that why would people spend more just to see the time. But in reality, it is way more than that. 

In this article, we are going to discuss 7 reasons why you should consider buying a smartwatch.

If you are the one looking for a smartwatch and want some solid reasons to buy it, this article is just for you. So, read the full blog post to know more.


1. Fitness Tracker

Yes, you hear it right. This is one of the main features of a smartwatch. I think a watch without a fitness tracker is not a smartwatch. You should not buy a watch which does not have this feature. (Rest, it depends on your preferences.)

If you want to achieve any goal, whether it is a fat loss or muscle gain, the fitness tracker features in the smartwatches can help you achieve your goal efficiently. 

And, if you are thinking of buying a fitness tracker or a Pedometer separately, you should probably change your mind and buy a smartwatch which is a one-stop-shop to track your fitness activities.

How Can A Smartwatch Help You Track Your Fitness?

Smartwatch can help you track and count the distance, steps, pulse rate, heart rate and sleep.

I have recently purchased a Samsung Gear S2 watch and let me tell you that this watch has been one of the best watches ever. It comes with a lot more features that other watches under this price range do not offer.

2. Notifications

If you are unaware of this feature that comes with every smartwatch, let me tell you that technology has reached so far that it is unpredictable and a lot more things coming on my way.

Well, let’s talk about the notifications.

This one is really interesting because every notification that comes on your phone also comes on the smartwatch you are wearing.

For example, you are in a meeting and you cannot pick up your phone during a meeting. It does not seem professional. So what can you do so that you are not disturbing others? You can just look into your watch that you are wearing because everything which is on the phone or in the notification war will also be available in your smartwatch. 

Thanks to the latest technology and personally, I love this feature.

That’s the beauty of the smartwatches. However, it will only happen if you own a smartwatch.


3. Travel Buddy

Are you a Traveller? Do you want to travel to different places to witness the beauty of the earth? If you are going to the woods, smartwatches or tactical watches can be your travel buddy.

Tactical watches are more than just a simple watch. You can do a lot more than a simple watch.

These types of watches are made to survive in harsh conditions. Most of the Tactical watches are dust resistant, durable, have long battery life, amazing design, GPS feature, and a lot more you can’t imagine..

How amazing is that? A watch is doing things that a simple watch cannot and even more than an Android or an iOS device.

4. Answer Calls on the Go



This feature is for the two categories of people, one who are lazy and the others who are active.

Ok, let me explain.

You are watching Money Heist on Netflix, sitting and enjoying your favourite snack. Suddenly, your phone starts ringing. You get frustrated because your phone is disturbing you and the Professor is about to enter the Royal Mint of Spain. 

Unfortunately, you have to get up from your bed because it might be your manager’s call. In this situation, a smartwatch is a lifesaver for you because you can pick up the call from the watch you are wearing.

If it is an emergency, and you are not able to find your phone, but you have to call somebody, then again, the smartwatch is a lifesaver for you.

Now comes the Categories of people who are active.

You are running and you have to complete 5 rounds of the playground and suddenly, your phone starts ringing. Now you have to stop and pick up the call of your boss. 

What you just did? You picked up the call of your boss. NO!!! You just stopped and it disturbed your running. 

If you had a smartwatch, you would have done both the tasks. 

Would you rather pick up a phone from your pocket or just answer the call from a smartwatch that you are wearing on your wrist? Of course, you would choose a smartwatch. 

It is easily accessible, saves your time and at the same time you are completing the five rounds of your playground. Isn’t that great?

Indeed yes.


5.Manage Social Media

Are you fond of using social media? This feature is just made for you. 

If we talk about the data, every 7 out of 10 people use social media for at least two hours a day.

Isn’t that big? Of course, it is.

On the other hand, if you are a business person, you might have to use social media again and again in order to engage with your customers.

Using a Smartwatch can save your tons of time and engage with your customers is easy with the watch because you will get instant notification whenever there is an activity in your feed.

I know this is not the optimum solution to interact with social media. But it can save you a lot of time. As a business owner, you might be busy in meetings, you might be travelling, or you might be having a zoom call with your clients, with just one smartwatch, you can do multiple tasks. 

NOTE: While buying a smartwatch, make sure that the watch has social media connectivity with it.

6. Play Music On The Go


Who doesn’t love music? Everybody does. Right?

But, what if I told you that you can listen to your favourite playlist from the smartwatch that you’re wearing?

How would you feel? Excited. I know, even I got excited when I came to know about this feature.

This is a really amazing feature that comes with the most smartwatches.

Still, thinking, why would I need a smartwatch? Think again about how it can change your life.

If you are a student, a busy professional, startup owner, or a house maker, this amazing feature of a Smartwatch can actually entertain you and boost your mood.

Smartwatch can make listening quite easier because you can easily adjust the volume and can line up the next song.
