Smartwatches are portable devices that are meant to be worn on the wrist. In their form factor, they are touchscreen devices, offer apps, and usually record your heart rate and other health data. Our smartwatches today are capable of many more things, such as replying to messages, making phone calls or even initiating calls.

More consumers grew to appreciate the value of wearing a mini-computer around their wrists with Wear OS (formerly Android Wear), Apple Watch, or Samsung Tizen. Additionally, specialty smartwatches for outdoor activities are often used to complement other, bulkier devices in an adventurer’s toolkit.
