Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

Smartwatches are a great companion, especially when you are doing your usual run of the mill. Choosing the best one is very hard, because of the many amazing smartwatches that 2016 has to offer. Hopefully, this article will help you get to know the watch you have been waiting for.

Apple Watch 2

The Apple Watch 2 is expected to arrive in April. It is rumored that the second version is more techie than the previous one. It is expected that the Apple Watch 2 will have longer battery life for better performance. But who knows, there aren’t any concrete answers regarding questions on battery life, yet. Even so, Apple will definitely add new features to the watch.

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch

This is probably the first watch that’s ever been created for fishing. This is great for individuals who love the great outdoors. The watch is waterproof up to 50 meters, shockproof, and vibration-proof because it uses US military standard MIL-STD0810 of dust and shock resistance.

The screen comes with a monochrome display that can be used instead of the color panel. This helps save battery life because color displays are battery killers. It possesses all the sensors necessary for the outdoors. It also has an accelerometer, gyrometer, and magnetometer. The Casio Smart Outdoor Watch has more to offer.

Tag Heuer Connected

Tag Heuer Connected is the first smartwatch to be powered by Google Intel silicone. It is very comfortable, despite its chunky appearance. It is lightweight due to its grade 2 titanium lugs and weighs only 52 grams. Its carbide-coated titanium bezel boasts of its anti-fingerprint technology. The face is on crystal sapphire glass. It’s a luxury watch you got to have.

Razer Nabu Watch

The Razer Nabu Watch looks like a typical watch, but only with smart features. It consists of a tiny OLED screen at the bottom of the face, which displays push notifications such as emails and text messages.

The upper part of the face displays the date and time and can switch to different timers and stopwatch modes. It is also a good fitness tracker. It looks like a 90’s watch with a chunky appearance.

The Omate Rise is the first water-resistant watch 3.0 with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Companion and 3G Standalone. It is powered by Android 5.1 and Omate User Interface 4.0 with a carbon fiber bezel.

Sony Smartwatch

Pebble Time

The Pebble Time smartwatch will have to be the winner in battery life, which can last for up to 7 days. So, if you are outdoors trekking, you would not have to stress about dying batteries. The timeline interface lets you view notifications, calendar events, weather, sports scores, weather forecasts, missed calls, and app alerts. They are converted into pins that allow you to view what is about to happen and events that have already happened. It’s a great watch that works well with android and iOS smartphones.
