If you’ve shopped for a smartwatch recently, you’ll have probably noticed that smartwatches tend to be listed for specific markets. For instance, outdoor smartwatches make different lists than fashion smartwatches. However, what these devices have in common is that they usually require a connection to your smartphone to be useful - or at least, for you to use their best features. The solution to the issue of smartphone-tethering is to buy a standalone smartwatch, which lets you use all its best features without a connection to your smartphone. Below, we have listed 10 standalone smar..

Indian wearable-tech and covert GPS tracker manufacturer Leaf Wearables has launched its first smartwatch for kids this month. It’s called the SAFER Kids Smart Watch, and it keeps kids connected to their parents with GPS tracking and call functionality. The SAFER Kids Smart Watch is simple to setup and thoughtfully designed.

If you’re into smartwatches, but you like the timelessness of analogue dials, then a hybrid smartwatch is what you want. Hybrid smartwatches don’t have a touchscreen. Instead, they boast a stonking battery life and track your activity and sleeping patterns - with your daily progress displayed on a smartphone application. They’re wear and forget devices, and what they do they do well. But, with so many to choose from, sifting the good from the bad isn’t easy. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Below, we’ve listed what we believe to be the top 10 hybrid smartwatches of 2018 to help you..
A few weeks ago, we brought you the news that ZTE were going to launch their first Android Wear smartwatch. The ZW10, as it was codenamed, wasn’t overly surrounded by rumour because news of it popped up very quickly. We did hear though that it would run the latest version of Android Wear 2.0, and have a ‘quartz’ movement. Today, we’re pleased to report that we have been proven right on one count and close on another, because ZTE has finally launched their new smartwatch. Introducing the ZTE Quartz The ZTE Quartz (see, we were almost bang on with our quartz reference) is an A..
If you have a traditional watch on your wrist that you love, then you probably aren’t interested in buying a smartwatch. Because for all their useful gadgetry and fitness-tracking features, they aren’t the watch you fell in love with. Thankfully, there’s now a solution available to you, if you’d like to keep the watch you love on your wrist while also tracking your activity. It’s called the Chronos disc. The Chronos Disc The Chronos Disc is an innovative device that can transform a traditional watch into a hybrid smartwatch. Simply put, you install it onto the back case of..
Here at Smartwatches4u, we love covering smartwatches that offer reasonable features for a reasonable price, such as the Samsung Gear S3. We also love covering pricier smartwatches, such as the delicious Movado Connect, and the prestigious Montblanc Summit. But, it’s time for something new. Something… pricier, and way, way more exotic. You know what fits the bill? The new Casio G-Shock MRGG2000HT. Announced at Baselworld 2017 (but not widely reported about), the G-Shock MRGG2000HT costs about the same as a five-star, month-long holiday in the Bahamas. It will retail for a staggering $7,..
Take a gander at the smartwatch market, and you’ll notice that smartwatches generally fall into three categories: Sporty (Moto 360 Sport), Rugged (Casio WSD-F20), and Formal (Movado Connect). These three tiers serve consumers well, and there’s even all-in-one devices, such as the HUAWEI Watch 2nd gen and Samsung Gear S3, for those who want it all. The area that’s seen the most interesting new devices recently is the Formal one, with Movado launching their Connect smartwatch and Tommy Hilfiger launching their curiously named TH24/7You smartwatch at Baselworld 2017. What’s interesting is..
Fresh from launching their Swiss-Made Connect smartwatch, Movado has launched another smartwatch through their Tommy Hilfiger brand. The Tommy Hilfiger TH24/7You (yes, it’s a rubbish name) is a touchscreen smartwatch with a casual design and a reasonable price tag, and it promises to be a hit when it goes on sale within Tommy Hilfiger stores. The Tommy Hilfiger TH24/7You The Tommy Hilfiger TH24/7You runs Android Wear 2.0 through a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. That processor is Snapdragon’s latest and greatest for Android Wear, and it can be found in all 2017’s top-tier sma..
Not everybody can afford the luxury of a smartwatch. And quite frankly, there’s plenty of people who can afford one but aren’t too bothered about them due to their price. The way we see it, the way around that is to launch a smartwatch for less than $90. At ninety bucks or less, a smartwatch becomes accessible for many people and gives them the perfect introduction to what smartwatches can do. Stark, a small start-up wearable technology company, thinks the same. Which is why their first product will be a smartwatch that costs just $80. $80 For a Smartwatch? Yep, just $80. It..
Running. You either get the bug, or you don’t. Garmin has been at the centre of the wearables market for runners and athletes for some time, with devices that track steps and calories burned on the market since before the iPhone was launched in 2007. Indeed, Garmin’s Vívoactive HR (launched last year) is a fantastic GPS and heart-rate wristband, with the ability to run standalone applications without the need for a smartphone. One thing that makes all of Garmin’s fitness devices different is this: Even if they have a smartwatch aesthetic which the Vívoactive HR has, they shun Android We..
