Smartwatch suggestions?


Recommended Posts

It looks like I am in the market for a new smartwatch as my current one, the Moto 360 Gen 1 seem not able to stay on or last a full day (turning off at random times, sometimes 75% battery, sometimes 25% battery, or whenever I toggle bluetooth on/off). I was hoping I could have it limp until at least July before replacing it, however with the reliability of the smartwatch in question (and with the missus blessing) I'm on the market for a new one. The only reason I was trying to shoot towards July is that would have made the 3 year mark of owning the watch and 3 years for what I paid for it (great sale) seems like the good lifespan of an early smartwatch.

What I typically use my smartwatch for is for notifications, time, minimal fitness (aka heart rate monitoring and steps tracking), replying to messages, etc. I'd consider it normal to light use.

So far I've been looking at the following smartwatches (as I like the round face) though can't seem to decide which I'd rather have. Budget is around 400 CAD but if I can get something that would be good for me at a lower price, I'm all in.

Samsung Gear S3 - I fear that this one is going to be replaced later in the year with the Gear 4.Huawei Watch 2 - No Canada warranty, US only, watch itself looks a bit 'cheap'-ish looking.Ticwatch E - Watch itself looks a bit 'cheap'-ish looking.

All comments, questions, etc appreciated and I'll try to respond back when able to, especially since eBay has 15% off orders over 50$ today might be a quick trigger purchase...

I have no experience with smart watches, other than keeping an eye out for when they will meet what I want them to do before buying (for me the battery life is the critical thing I want better before buying). That said, given you have kept the last one almost 3 years, I wouldnt suggest bothering with a watch you dont like the looks of now (aka cheapish). That feeling is only going to get stronger over time and I would suspect lead to purchase regret.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software

    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
