The best smartwatch that are compatible with the iPhone
Triumphant launch of Apple Watch didn’t guarantee the dominance of the new platform, and representatives of the Android Wear and major manufacturers of wearable electronics, such as Fossil and the Fitbit, repeatedly increased their efforts, blocking the potential blitzkrieg of Apple.
There are so much worthy competitors on the smart watch market and to find the ideal watch is quite difficult, however you can narrow down the search by reading my review of the most popular “wearables” that can work in tandem with the iPhone and provide you with everything you need, such as: notifications delivery, specialization on targeted information (weather, fitness-tracker, GPS, etc), attractive look and the guarantee of the bright future, which includes the development of the platform, evolution of the model range and the introduction of new solutions and applications.
These watches are just perfectly working just like the iPhone. Both products are crafted by Apple with the brand standards and with the objective to cooperate with each other. However, Cupertino screwed a bit by carrying too much with the expansion in the industry of fashion accessories and invested unusually a lot of work in the design of the component of the gadget. There is a great collection of straps, materials and body colors to decorate your wrist and to make a guaranteed impression on the audience. However, you might be dazzled from an excessive amount of widgets and the choice of optimal applications list turns into a difficult task.
The display of the watch is made with “electronic paper” technology, which means not only a demonstration of useful information under the direct rays of the sun, but also the long battery life of the gadget measured in days. Perhaps it’s even superfluous, because the iPhone itself without recharging do not often live up to the evening. Software of the Pebble Time is universal, but with the gadgets running Android it works a little better than with Apple products. However, the range of applications, services and dial designs far cannot be called poor, on the contrary, specifically for this model of wearable third party developers created lots of diverse and useful software. And the price tag of $150 is much less than $350 for the Apple Watch in the minimum configuration.
Smart watch manufactured by Motorola designed for Android Wear platform, but work well in tandem with the iOS, not as great as the Apple Watch, but quite decent. Moto 360 are waterproof and allows the owner to take a shower or swim in the pool without taking off the gadget. Motorola was the first one who began selling the only one of its kind smart watch with a circular display, which is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. Overall, it is great fashion accessory, undoubtedly, circular display will attract the attention of other people and an induction charging method is probably the most convenient for the smart watch, however the charging time is about 3 hours. Anyway, this gadget is difficult to advise for geeks who are going to use the functionality to the maximum, running the variety of applications on it. Because the developers are not hurrying to adapt applications to the circular screen and also, Moto 360 has short battery life.
The scale with which Huawei does business, ensures a stable and rapid development of the platform, which is compatible with iOS and Android. Among the obvious merits of Huawei Watch – large dimensions and stylized classic mechanical chronometers of the gentlemen from previous years. The price tag is $349.
TAG Heuer Connected
The famous Swiss brand, previously commented with contempt about the Apple Watch project, changed its position and has recently presented its own version of “wearable”. Something between a tribute to fashion and trying to catch up, to squeeze into the niche of premium accessories for smartphones. Formally it is created with the active participation of the Intel and Google, model TAG Heuer Connected in fact it is common watches with functional of typical chronometer. The main feature is that the potential buyer for $1500 gets a titanium body, recognizable design and … the ability to get rid of them and switch for classic mechanical watches from TAG Heuer.
