There’s no mistaking that the smart watch segment has a lot of activity. We’ve had some articles about them (here’s our review of the MetaWatch, and a roundup article), and do have another review in the works.
In the iterim, however, I ran across an article over at Lifehacker that covers some of the basics as to what you can do with a smart watch, and how they work. As you read it over, it can definitely give you some food for thought as to whether or not one makes sense for you.
Then, past that, they have an overview of three different watches that offer varying functionality – the Pebble (which seems to be the current king of the hill, at least when it comes to ink splashed), a variant of the MetaWatch that we reviewed, and then another intriguing option from Martian (which is what we’re working on a review of).
It’s a quick read, but the article will give you some idea of what a smart watch can do, and help answer (for you, or someone you know) the question of whether or not it’s a smart purchase.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
