Form and function align for the perfect fit
While Apple is the King of the Hill when it comes to smartphones, there are a few contenders for the title of best smartwatch. Here are some nifty smartwatches available on Qoo10, which will give the Apple Watch a run for its money.
Late last year, Pebble Time launched its Classic Smartwatch on Kickstarter to much fanfare and it’s not hard to see why. One of the first smartwatches to be compatible with both iOS and Android, the Pebble Classic delights with its 1.26 inch screen and 144 X 168 pixel e-paper display.
The #FreshHotFly Classic comes in Fresh Green, Hot Pink and Fly Blue limited edition colours and you can download and customise its watchface from the thousands available online.
Weighing just 38g with a TPU rubber wristband, the no-frills smartwatch connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and allows you to check calls, SMSes, emails and notifications with ease. What’s more, the watch is water-resistant and has 5-7 days of battery life per charge.
2. Huawei W1 Smartwatch
guably the best looking smartwatch on the market, the Huawei W1 Smartwatch combines classic style and smart technology. Powered by Android Wear, it works with both Android and iOS.
Boasting a 400 X 400 pixel AMOLED full circle display protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the watch’s cold-forged 316L Stainless Steel casing comes in 3 colour variants (silver, black and rose gold) and can be paired with a fine leather or steel strap.
Clocking in at the 2 O’Clock position, its ergonomic button grants access to a host of functions. Pair it with your smartphone via Bluetooth or Wifi to use mobile apps like Google Maps and Google NOW Personal Assistant and be notified of messages, calls and emails without reaching for your phone.
Its six-axis motion sensor (gyroscope and accelerometer), heart rate sensor (PPG) and barometer allow you to keep track of your fitness. Fast charged to 80% capacity in 45 minutes, its 300mAH battery lasts for 36 hours when fully charged.
3. ASUS VivoWatch
Made for the modern gentleman, the ASUS VivoWatch impresses with minimalist flair, with its 128 X 128 pixel display and sleek Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen. Fully charged in 1-2 hours, the smartwatch can operate for 10 days without a recharge.
Its built-in heart rate sensor, 3-axis accelerometer and pedometer allows you to keep track of steps taken, calories burnt and sleep patterns, contributing to your “Happiness Index”.
