Are Smartwatches Finally Living Up To Their Promise Of Being “Smart”?
In the early days, the designs were bulky and not very aesthetic. The battery life was awful and the functionalities were not that great. Soon, smartwatches working on Google's Android Wear software became available.
With Apple’s first launch, the category was redefined. It no longer was just a gadget. It became a piece of accessory filled with functionalities. Today, even luxury brands like Montblanc and Louis Vuitton are developing smart watches.
Apple introduced its fourth smartwatch, Qualcomm has partnered with companies like Fossil on fashionable devices, and Samsung again updated its wearable lineup with its new Galaxy Watch.
Apple released its first watch in 2015 and since then, has featured heart-rate monitors and fitness trackers. It can now detect falls which is a major reason for death among the elderly. It can also detect atrial fibrillation and comes with an FDA clearance.
At the last IFA electronics show, Casio, Fossil’s Skagen, and Diesel showcased their latest smartwatches placing emphasis on health and wellness functions. In spite of Samsung’s new release, it is still having trouble competing with Apple. Qualcomm has partnered with Tag Heuer, Movado, Fossil Group, and Montblanc to develop devices that are not focused on just the features.
