The most famous smartwatches at a glance

In this article, you will learn more about the various functions of a smartwatch..

Smartwatches have developed into true all-rounders over the years and their range of functions is sometimes even superior to smartphones. Depending on the model, the smart wristwatches are either at home in the Android or Apple ecosystem. Apple watches can only achieve their full potential in connection with an iPhone, while Android smartwatches are not tied to specific devices. Samsung devices still work best with smartphones from the same manufacturer. In this article we have summarized the most important functions of a smartwatch for you and at the end we will introduce you to some of the most popular smartwatches and their functions.

What can a smartwatch do?

The design, range of functions and compatibility of the smartwatch differ depending on the manufacturer and model. However, basic functions are now supported by almost all devices - including the inexpensive ones. The main functions of a smartwatch are:

  1. Synchronize important data with the smartphone : weather, time, messages and calls are displayed on the smartwatch.
  2. Counting steps : A step counter is part of the standard equipment and should be present in every modern smartwatch.
  3. Play music : You can control the music collection on your smartphone remotely with the connected smartwatch.
  4. Voice control : Voice control is also possible through built-in microphones.
  5. Fitness functions such as pulse measurement, consumed calories or running speed are usually also integrated. The range of functions can be expanded even further with third-party fitness tracker apps.
  6. GPS function : Thanks to the integrated GPS, map apps or route planners can be used.
  7. If you use a SIM card (E-Sim), you can operate the smartwatch completely independently of the smartphone and thus make calls , send messages , etc.
  8. Some smartwatch models now offer an EKG function with which you can monitor your heartbeat and create a simple cardiogram.
  9. Flashlight function : The display can be used as a flashlight by showing a bright, white background.

Apple Watch
The smartwatch from the manufacturer Apple impresses with its unique design and high recognition value. If you want to connect the smart watch to your smartphone, you can only do this with an iPhone. Other devices are not supported. The Smartwatch comes in several versions: The Apple Watch SE for price-conscious users who still want a very good range of functions; the Apple Watch Nike for sports enthusiasts with exclusive watch faces; the Apple Watch Series 6, the flagship with the highest equipment and maximum functionality; as well as the older generation 3, which still offers a good range of functions and modern technologies at a lower price.

Samsung Galaxy Watch In
contrast to the competition, the Galaxy Watch from the manufacturer Samsung has a classically round design and therefore looks more like a wristwatch. In terms of functionality, however, it is in no way inferior to the Apple Watch. On the contrary: Bluetooth and LTE are on board as required, as are EKG and blood pressure monitors..

Huawei Watch
Like Samsung, the smartwatch from the manufacturer Huawei relies on a classically round design that, in direct comparison, appears much more minimalist and straightforward. Functionally, it is on a par with the models from Apple and Samsung.
