See the Pros and Cons of having a Smartwatch in Your Fitness Regime

A smartwatch is a wearable computer-like device that looks like a wristwatch. These modern smartwatches available on Etpsonline are connected with the smartphone app for management and other benefits.

While the early models only could perform basic tasks, such as showing us the digital time, calculations, basic translations, and then the game-changing smartwatches came up from 2010 onwards, and you can’t believe they have functionality similar to smartphones 

e.g:

  • Mobile Apps, 
  • Operating System,
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity.
ProsCons
Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle.
Besides being a smartwatch, it can track most of your activities, nutrition, and how much calories are burned. Some can also monitor heart rate and blood pressure. These data can help you reach your fitness goals faster as well as give an overview of your overall health. Also, some smartwatches have lots of sensors that make your fitness tracking easier. Some even have dedicated workout modes such as walking, running, swimming, cycling, weight lifting, etc.
Price. 
Smartwatches can be quite expensive. The more affordable ones have priced no less than Rs.5000, some do cost about Rs.2500, while high-end models can cost up to Rs.30,000. If you’re on a tight budget, you may be thinking hard about buying a smartwatch that is really worth it, or it’s better to just stick to your smartphone. But if you can afford these smartwatches, you may want to check out our website. 
Quick Access to Notifications.
Another important function of these smartwatches is to show notifications so that the users can have quick access to them. Receive email notifications, calls, texts, calendar alerts, news alerts, and whatnot. You can even receive Social Media notifications, such as Facebook or Instagram. One doesn’t need to take out your phone from your bag or pocket to check the notification. After reading the notification through your watch, you can decide whether to take any further action or to ignore it. It becomes very convenient, especially if you’re in a meeting or doing something really important.
Limited Battery Life.
This is one of the main disadvantages of a smartwatch. Typically, smartwatches can only be used 1 to 2 days after a full charge. Some don’t even last for one day, especially if you use power-hungry features. If you forgot to charge it, you’ll end up having a dead watch the next day. Moreover, you won’t be able to use some features like sleep tracking if your watch runs out of charge while you’re sleeping.
Never Miss a Call. 
If you’re the type of person who is always on the go or quite in a hurry, missing a call can be a normal part. When you’re outside, in a crowded noisy place and you don’t hear your phone ringing, the vibration from the smartwatch is easily noticeable and can send you an alert that you’ve received a call or text. Then, you can quickly decide whether to respond or not by just looking at the watch immediately.
Your Phone Has to Be Close By.
Unless your smartwatch has cellular capability or can connect to a Wi-Fi network, you have to be within the Bluetooth range of your smartphone to use apps. One limitation of Bluetooth technology is that the watch has to be within 300 feet of the device that it is connected to. That means your phone has to be in your pocket, bag, in the room, or anywhere around.
Convenience.
These High-end smartwatches offer features that are truly convenient. Some have NFC that will allow you to make cashless payments. Others have LTE cellular capabilities as well, which will enable you to send texts and make calls even if you don’t have your smartphone around.
Screen Size.
One not so nice thing about smartwatches is that everything is grouped in a small space. When you want to use apps, pressing the correct button may require extra effort, especially if you have big fingers. Watching videos and movies on a smartwatch may not also be as visually pleasing compared to doing the same on a smartphone, PC, or tablet. For this reason, you may want to check out the two smartwatch models with the biggest screen size that is available on our website.

New Watch Faces Every Day.
If you use a regular watch, it can get boring seeing the same dial every day. On the other hand, you can change the dial/watch face of a smartwatch every damn day. Besides being stylish, it allows you to match the watch face according to your mood and preference also. 
Will Never Replace a Smartphone.
Smartwatches are always getting better in terms of performance, capabilities, and connectivity. However, it is unlikely that a day will come that it can perform all the functions of a smartphone. Because of its small size, it will have an effect on the size of the display, how long the battery will last, and how powerful hardware can be fitted into a smartwatch.
Watch Movies and Listen to Music.
When it comes to entertainment, there’s really no point of comparison between a smartwatch and an ordinary watch. You can watch a full-length movie on a smartwatch without any problem. A smartwatch also allows you to connect earphones so you can listen to your favorite music anytime.
May cause health problems
The smartwatches might be helping with the daily course but the various health problems cannot be ignored. Smartwatches emit EMF radiation which is extremely degrading and harmful. Similar contributions also need to be done in the field of smartwatches to educate people about the problems that this small electronic device might trigger.
Fashionable.
Unlike fitness trackers, smartwatches are stylish and fashionable. The former is designed for sports activities while the latter can be worn on almost any occasion. You can wear a smartwatch at work, at school, on a dinner date, or while meeting an important client. It will also blend well with your OOTD, whether casual or formal.
It is basically a waste of money.
It’s not very useful for most people, it’s just an accessory for fun. If you don’t plan to use its full potential, a smartwatch is probably not for you. Smartwatches are just another tech trend for those who have extra money to buy them and look cool.
