Posted by Martin Simkin in Feature Articles on 14/06/2018.

Rugged smartwatches are incredibly versatile. They’re great for hiking, swimming, wearing to work, playing with the kids and everything in-between. What makes a smartwatch rugged? It’s got to have a durable outer body, some level of shock protection and waterproofing of some kind, be it an IP certification such as IPX8 or IP68 or an ATM rating such as 10ATM. It’s also got to have in-built GPS - a feature which is extremely useful if you do any outdoor exploring.

The best gym smartwatches will track each lift and every step you take in the gym. If that’s something you’d benefit from, we’ve got some great recommendations for you. It’s important to note that regular fitness trackers have little to offer if your workouts heavily focus on weightlifting. The market is such that it caters for running, swimming and cycling rather than lifting weights. Even something as simple as a push-up, or pull-up, isn’t tracked by standard wearables. The market is also such th..

Top 10 Smartwatches under $100 2018

Posted by Martin Simkin in Feature Articles on 27/01/2018.

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, and one that isn’t let down by a slow OS or dated..

If you can live with that compromise, read on,..
