How to choose and buy your smartwatch
According to Wikipedia, a smartwatch is a wearable computer in the form of a wristwatch; modern smartwatches provide a local touchscreen interface for daily use, while an associated smartphone app provides for management and telemetry (such as long-term biomonitoring).
Smart watches are gradually becoming part of our daily live. Looking into the future it will be a must have for everyone. I mean think of a future that is similar to what we have today where smartphones are becoming kings over our lives.
I once heard that Bill Gates “prophesied” decades ago that the big computers we had on our tables then will become devices on our palm. And true to his prediction smartphones have become awesome devices that the average citizen of the earth cannot do without.
Our lives revolve around it. Now into the future these smartphones could metamorphose into smartwatches. When you look deep down into smartwatches, they seem to be miniature smartphones.
Smart watches are powered by about same application and operating systems that power other smart devices, particularly the software.
The backbone of the operating systems that powers these watches are the same or like the applications that run the phones.
Android or variants of android, apple OS and its variant are the two leading applications. Providers like Huawei, Xiaomi and Samsung use android or their own in-house applications.
Most of them also use their own inhouse developed hardware but usually there is cross pollination of hardware between the various manufacturers of these smart gadgets.
Processing speeds of smartwatches
The processing speed of smartwatches, storage and efficiency over the years have seen gradual improvements.
Processing speeds have continued to increase so also is the RAM and storage space. Features of these phones is only limited by the imagination of the designers. From tracking to monitoring to reminding and lots more.
The latest phones are now delving into the health features where they can monitor things like blood pressure, electrocardiogram (ECG) and lots more.
Some of them have spy cameras, recording apps and more. A common feature is that of being able to make calls, send messages and get notifications.

Benefits of smart watches.
Features give benefits and this should be the key reason for wanting to acquire a smart watch. The benefit could be as little as aesthetics, wanting to look good or a function. What ever it is it should bring the user some for of joy or satisfaction.
Smart watch development have improved in recent years with lots of features. From physical features like colours and ability to change the watch band to internal features like increased speed, storage, camera, ability to make calls, send and receive sms to more sophisticated functions like checking your heart beat, monitoring blood pressure, exercise, sleep and even electrocardiogram, you are bound to find the smart device of your choice.
While every watch may not have all of these functions, doing some research is sure to help you make a decision on what you want and budget accordingly.
My advise however is to consider acquiring one as a capital project, invest well and make sure that whatever you buy carries you into the next few years. Why you may ask? Well the tech industry is one of the fastest if not the fastest at evolving. The gadgets you see in the market today are archaic already, if newer versions are not released into the market already, the manufacturers are putting finishing touches to having latest improved versions in the market. So get the latest version you can afford.
