Many people would love to have the latest and greatest smartwatch. But, it’s hard to choose which one is right for you. There are a lot of brands out there Apple, Samsung, Motorola, LG and Koretrak Pro each with their own advantages. And then there’s the cost: some watches are hundreds or thousands of dollars! So how do you find the best watch for your needs?
Why are people drawn to smartwatches?
Smartwatches allow you to easily view and respond to text messages, email updates, social media notifications, and much more. Plus, you can control your music and even access apps right from your watch. But some watches do all this while still looking like a “real” watch. Others add an extra layer of bling that may not be suited for business meetings or evening dates. One thing to note is that most smartwatches require you to charge them at least once a day, and some even require charging twice a day. If you need a watch that will last all day without being charged, it might be best to get a regular men’s or women’s watch.
How do I connect my smartwatch to Wi-Fi?
Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular
You must have an existing iPhone plan with AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon in order for this feature to work on your Apple Watch . Once you have an active cellular data plan, go into the Apple Watch app on your phone and select “Cellular”. Make sure both are updated (your phone and your watch) and restart your Apple Watch by holding down the side button until you see the power off slider. Select that and allow it to update. After that, activate your cellular plan on your phone and wait a few minutes for the watch to sync with the updated data (this could take several minutes). Once this is done, go back into the cellular settings of your Apple Watch and select “Wi-Fi” instead of “Cellular”. Then use Wi-Fi on your phone to find networks and connect to one. This will work as long as you have service from AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon on both devices.
