Market analysts love the Apple Watch. In fact, they just love Apple. That isn’t because they are brand biased or invested in Apple Stock. It’s because as a brand, Apple leads the way with smartphones, tablets, and smartwatch sales. Because of that, they give market analysts a great indication of market health, which is what projections are largely based on. One of the things that has come from these projections is the sheer domination that the Apple Watch holds over the smartwatch and wearables market.

What can you buy for $100? A decent pair of kicks’ costs more than that. Still, if that’s your budget for a smartwatch, there’s plenty of options to choose from. If you have $100 to spend on a smartwatch, for the most part we recommend you look at hybrid smartwatches (smartwatches with an analogue watch face and activity tracking sensors) over smartwatches with a digital display. That’s because the market for smartwatches under $100 with a digital display is weak. Most are from brands you’ve never heard of. At least with a hybrid smartwatch, you’ll get a product that’s enjoyable to use,..

From heart-rate sensors to EKG readings, it appears that our heart health and blood health is the next big thing for smartwatches on the medical scene. The only thing missing is a smartwatch that can take blood pressure measurements. That is, until the Omron HeartGuide is granted FDA approval and comes to market. Omron HeartGuide Revealed at..
Fitness smartwatches have become a dime a dozen. They can now track your heart-rate, pace, calories burned, and much more. Get a GPS smartwatch, and it’ll even log your runs in real-time. However, there’s one single feature that can make or break a fitness smartwatch, and that’s the ability to run untethered from a smartphone. “Untethered” means that a smartwatch doesn’t require a smartphone to operate its features. For example, GPS or music. Music is an important one, since most people only get into their zone when working out to their favourite tunes. A smartwatch that can store songs..
