A Helpful Illustrated Guide to the Best Smart Watch.
Many people ask what is the Best Smart Watch for me? The simple and somewhat obvious answer will be, it all depend on what you want it to do and how much you have to spend.
Normally when you look through the specification you will see a list of terms and abbreviations and with the ever increasing rate of technology it can be difficult to know exactly what your getting, so before deciding what is the best smart watch for you it makes sense to understand what your getting for your money and ask yourself do you really want it or indeed need it?
If your into camping or hiking as a hobby or you work somewhere that the watch may come into contact with water it makes sense to go for a smartwatch that is IP (or "Ingress Protection") rated and as you would imagine there are various different levels of IP ratings starting with IP65 and going to IP68.
IP65 is rated as “Dust Tight” and protected against water projected from a nozzle. In other words its Ok if it gets splashed.
IP66 is rated as "dust tight" and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water, so would be fine if you worked on a ship for example.
IP67 is rated as "dust tight" and protected against immersion. The Zeblaze Vibe Rugged Smart Watch is a perfect example of this and it has a waterproof performance of 50 meters.
IP68 is rated as "dust tight" and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water and this is currently the highest rating. The All New L5 Multiple Sports Mode Mens Smart Watch is IP68 rated and has a tough Carbon Fiber Material Casing.
It also has a built-in one press LED torch light, so would be ideal for someone who likes Camping, hiking etc.
Now for someone looking to track their fitness many of the new Smart Watches have fitness trackers including pedometers that do all the usual stuff like counting the number of steps you take and the calories you consume. The prices of this technology is coming down and we currently have and Android Smart Watch for under $26
However, if all you want is something that can tell the time and track your fitness then you maybe better off with a fitbit that is more compact like the Lemfo IP68 Smart Sports bracelet
But lets be honest there are some of us out there who really don’t care how many steps we take or how many calories we consume in the course of a day!
However, some these smart watches have built-in blood pressure and heart rate monitors and can be really useful if you suffer with high blood pressure and want a convenient way to keep an eye on it.
The Colmi M3S has an optical sensor that can accurately monitor your heart rate 24 hours a day.
The next big thing with smart Watches is GPS. The Global Positioning System (GPS), was originally known as Navstar GPS and was launched by the U.S. Department of Defense in 1973 for use by the United States military. It became fully operational in 1995 and in the 1980s civilian use was allowed.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a network of approximately 30 satellites that orbit the Earth at an altitude of approximately 20,000 km. So wherever you are on the planet, at least four GPS satellites are ‘visible’ at any time and anyone with a GPS device, be it either a SatNav, Smart Phone, Smart Watch or handheld GPS device, can receive the radio signals that the satellites broadcast.
Each satellite transmits information about the current time and its position at regular intervals. These signals then travel at the speed of light and are picked by the GPS receiver device that then calculates how far away each satellite is based on how long it took for the messages to arrive.
Your GPS receiver can then pinpoint your location using a process called trilateration as soon as it has calculated the information on its relative distance from at least three of the satellites and the more satellites it can pick up the more accurate it becomes partly due to the effects of relativity of time as the atomic clock on board the satellite will seem to run faster than a clock on Earth and whole GPS network has to make allowances for these effects, so the more satellite the device can pick up the more accurate the reading.
GPS can be use by your Smart Watch with Google Maps for example to give you directions this can be particularly useful if your riding a push bike around town and our Lem7 Smart Watch for example has this capability.
The Best part?
The best part of GPS technology however is when its used for a real practical purpose. Many of our Smart Watches feature Geo-fencing.
Put simply Geofencing is a virtual perimeter that can be set up to cover a geographic location generated around a set point to cover a set radius. For example Our GPS Kids Smart Watch can be set up using a downloadable App on your phone and if your Child moves out of the safety area an alarm will sound on your phone alerting to to any potential danger.
Many or Our GPG enabled Smart Watches also feature Historic Route Play back so you can trace someones steps should you need to?
This feature can also be of great use if you have an elderly relative who may be suffering from Alzheimers Dementia and is a feature of the D99 Smart Watch that also features an SOS alarm that will call through to a preset number to get assistance in case of a fall and also has a two way intercom.
That’s not all...
GPS can also be used for pets...
Now we’re not suggesting for one minute that you buy your four legged friend a Smart Watch and try to teach him the time. Some Dogs are known to be very intelligent but telling the time might be a bit of a stretch! However, when the mode takes them they can always find their way out of the back yard and off they go!
Fortunately, we have a range of GPS Tracking Collars to find them when they have done a runner, like the Silicone IP65 Pets Collar that also has Geofencing and Remote Intercom to give commands to your pet via your phone.
Ok, so now we have covered GPS the next feature we need to cover is Calling Reminder.
Many of the Smart Watches in Our Collections like the Luxury Multi Dial Ladies Smart Watch can connect to your Smart Phone via Bluetooth, so that when your phone calls you can take the call through it. It can also be used for message reminders as well as notifications from Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, WeChat, SMS, Skype, etc
However, if you want to make stand alone Cellular Calling you will need a phone with a built-in Sim Card Slot.
Many of the Smart Watches in Our Collection have this feature and some of the lower price point models run on the 2g GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz network.
Higher price point models like the Series 4 Apple Watch have GPS + Cellular and Start at around $499
The Lemfo X Sport from Our Collection has GPS + 4g Cellular for just $249.99
You can now leave your phone at home and still take calls and connect to the internet where ever you are.
It also has another trick up its sleeve that you won’t find on the more expensive Apple Watch... An 8 megapixel Camera!
Another feature to look out for on the latest Smart Watches is Video Calling and with the latest Lem4 Super Big Screen Pro phone this isn’t a problem. In fact you might wanna think of it as your very own "Personal Life Assistant" that comes with Google Assistant, Built-in GPS Navigation, Music, Notifications, Bluetooth Calling, Independent Calling using the 3G Network and Nano SIM to name but a few of the many built in features.
If that wasn’t enough there are also a host of downloadable Apps to suite your every needs!
One other useful feature of this Big Screen Smart Watch is Global Communications Gaming...
