Smart Watches for Men
Those men who have been looking for smartwatches temptingly at the fashion street and market in these last few years, it’s fair to say that you have done well not to pull the trigger and buy one smartwatch so far as the patience is now paid off. The likes of Motorola, Samsung and Apple, Fitbit all have launched an excellent collection of smartwatches and have gotten in on the action with smartwatches which are basically for all intents and purposes, aimed solely at men.
Most smartwatches are aimed at men and made particularly as per their choice and demand which is understandable given the stereotype that men are more interested in tech than women. But the main reason the smartwatch market has grown as it has is that smartphones have lost momentum. We have now reached what is known in the tech world as ‘peak smartphone’, a place in the smartphone’s lifecycle where devices are as good as they can get. Sure, OEMs can release phones with bigger screens and faster processors, but we’ve seen it all before.
There’s nothing new, and that’s boring. Smartwatches meanwhile are new and they offer an exciting new way for us to interact with our digital lives.
There are two versions of this watch, the Standard and the Classic, however, they both have the same internals and features. The Classic is more of a dress watch with a glossy steel body and the Standard is more an outdoors watch with a matte body that’s slightly thicker.
One of the easiest ways to look better instantly is to dress up your wrist with a timepiece that looks and performs like you do.
Lucky for you, modern-day smartwatches aren’t dainty pieces of hardware. Most on the market are bolstered with sapphire or Gorilla Glass (the stuff used on smartphones), adorned with stainless steel, silicone, or water-friendly genuine leather bands, and fitness-boosting technology. These aren’t your Joe Schmoe fitness trackers—these are designed with style in mind, and they look just as good in the bench-press station as they do in the boardroom.
We test smartwatches just like we test smartphones. We use them every day and test out all the marquee features. We strap them to our wrists (no matter how silly they look), and walk around town with them, making calls and exercising to test out the workout features. We pair them with different phones and test the experience when the watch is connected to phones different OSes. We dunk water-resistant smartwatches in water and take outdoorsy watches on hikes. We download tons of apps and discard the lame ones to determine how strong the app ecosystem really is, and we go to cafes that accept mobile payments and buy lattes with our wrists.
Basically, we get lots of weird looks, but it’s worth it.
