A smartwatch can help you do a lot of things. Big companies such as Apple, Samsung, Fitbit are improving their technology and adding new features to give you best user experience.

But, getting a good smartwatch is not easy, when you don’t know what things that you should keep in mind. But don’t worry, In this post, I will show you what features you should look for in a smartwatch.

Features You Should Look For In A Smartwatch


Never buy a smartwatch without knowing the compatibility. If you want to buy Apple watch, then you can use it using Apple iPhone. If you have Samsung brand smartwatch, then you can use it on both OS Platforms.


Sensors are another important aspects that you should look for. If you are paying the premium amount, then check your smartwatch has GPS and heart rate sensor. Apple has the best heart rate in terms of accuracy.


You should always look for battery backup because we know how important it is. Usually, most of smartwatches give 2-3days of backup. But if your watch has a lot of features, then maybe you will get 1-2 days.

Fitness Tracking

Tracking our fitness is an important part of your life. But during your busy schedule, it’s not always possible, and that’s why you should have fitness tracking smartwatch. So, whenever you buy, make sure the smartwatch has inbuilt fitness tracking features.

Samsung gear S3, Gear Sport, Apple Watch 3 has GPS sensor. It will be best for those peoples who love to running or biking.


App selection is a factor, but it’s not as important as, design compatibility and other features. I use few apps, and it helps me to do a lot of things. Check the list of best Samsung Gear S2 Apps that I use.


Now, I hope your doubt has cleared. Keep these points in mind before buying a new smartwatch.

I have been using Samsung Gear S2 and thinking to upgrade my gear. Rumors have it that Samsung might be launching the Gear S4 this year. I am waiting for it. You can follow Samsung Gear S4 Update here.  If you are looking for a smartwatch for fitness, then you can go for Samsung. They have amazing features and great design.
