Technology has evolved into more new sophisticated versions of itself throughout the years. From smartphones that can be used underwater up to bendable laptops, the continuous upgrades of gadgets providing ease and convenience do not seem to have an end to it. Should the wide range of technologies can amplify their features at a steady pace like this, who knows what the future might bring us besides flying cars and hologram screens?
Out of all existing gadgets that have been buffed with additional features, there is one in particular that has been innovated into a better model of it and screams “new year, new me” for the year 2021. Get ready to change your watch for a more refined yet functional version that does more than just reading the time.
Introducing smartwatches – a portable device designed like any other watch, except it has a wide range of uses compared to your regular watch from KL Sentral jewelry shops. A smartwatch consists of features like a smartphone, such as using touchscreens and apps and, for those who are fitness-concerned, can keep track of your heart rate and other vital signs just by wearing it on your wrist like usual.
Here are five main features of smartwatches that will pique your interest in buying them:
Sometimes it is a hassle to take out your phone from your pocket expecting a text message from someone special but it is only a message from your usual bill reminder. With the smartwatch, you can get notified with a simple display to alert you of important events, activities, or notifications from your social media account in case of any likes and comments received from your recent photogenic post. It is a “must-have” function that allows you to interact with your apps.
A Safer Alternative For Transaction
The pandemic has taken away one thing, and that is physical contact. To pay for your groceries at your nearest Bangsar South shopping mall on the weekend, you’d notice most supermarkets prefer contactless transactions to minimize the risk of spreading the virus. With a smartwatch, you can do exactly that with a simple scan and the payment will be settled in a jiffy.
Answer Messages and Calls By Voice
One special feature of a smartwatch is that you can double it up as your mobile phone. Use it as a remote to answer calls on your smartphone or make the calls. Smartwatches are created with a built-in microphone and speaker to make a call without your smartphone by using the network connection. It is crazy how technologies improve our lives.
Keep Track Of Your Fitness Activities
Are you an avid jogger who visits parks like Tanjung Aru Perdana at Kota Kinabalu on the weekends? Do you often follow up with your health but need specific data to be sure that you’re in the right pace without straining yourself beyond your capacity? Having a smartwatch as your friendly fitness tracker can actually do more good than you ever think of. It can measure your sleep quality, monitor your heart rate accurately through an electrocardiogram feature (ECG), and initiate activity tracking for your walks, cycling, swimming, strength training and many more.
Can Be Used As Your Travel Buddy
Planning to pay a visit to Ampang Hilir but worry you might get lost on your journey way there? Keep a smartwatch by your side (or wrist) and you’re good to go! Just like your phone, smartwatches deliver different kinds of vibration to your wrist to notify which is the right direction to go without looking at your phone back and forth which can be dangerous and risky for possible accidents. This helpful feature allows you to follow an invisible guide that lets you in on where to go and let you take in the scenery of the outside world rather than staring at the map all the time.
An honorable mention of the best smartwatch ever created is the Apple Watch Series 4 which not only guides you better than your normal GPS but also comes with a waterproof rating of 50 meters underwater for those who love to swim while taking note of your condition.
