DID YOU KNOW?

The first ever digital watch came out back in 1972? The Hamilton Watch Company and Electro/Data Inc. developed an LED prototype and called it Pulsar. They wrapped it in 18-carat gold and sold it for $2,100. Seiko released the T001 in 1983 and it featured a 1 and a quarter screen divided into two areas and linked to a TV receiver. It was the first watch that tried to show more information on the screen. The Timex Datalink then came in 1994 and it was the first watch that is able to operate without wires. The early 2000s was the time of Personal Digital Assistant or PDA devices. Fossil made the Wrist PDA and it might as well have been the progenitor of modern smartwatches. It's packed full of features like a touch screen, an infrared port, and even a stylus for better precision.

Since then, various companies have tried their hand at a modern smartwatch. They faced plenty of hurdles with their attempts. It was both from a practical standpoint and from a technological one. It was not until Pebble came out with their smartwatch that people started noticing. They proved that making a smartwatch that was actually useful was possible. Apple and Google joined the fray with their Apple Watch and Android Wear devices. Most would argue that the Apple Watch is "the smartwatch" to beat. Android Wear put up a good fight and runs on more smartwatches. It also offers some of the best smartwatches under 200 and a great experience. It's also more customizable with plenty of wear apps to improve its functionality. Smartwatches are here to stay and will only get better in time.

    "I scored an LGW270 smartwatch for under 200$ on Amazon. I was skeptical, but at that price I thought I'd try it out and return it if I didn't like it. After a week, I am definitely going to keep it. It doesn't have full smartwatch capability, but it has all I really need from a watch, and the thing is light and small enough for comfort and style. "

    "In my humble opinion, this is just not attractive at all. If I'm buying a smartwatch I have to really like the look of it and this doesn't appeal to me at all. It's got all the usual bells and whistles though. I would rather have a watch where I love the look of it and the brand is a technology based brand not a fashion brand. If you like the look of it maybe give it a try but check out the warranty info carefully."

Since I am always on the toes with little one around and even though I may not be able to do full fledged excercies, this fitness tracker is going to help me to track the steps and calories that I burned on a day. The best part is it is affordable and is less than 50$. I would definetley go for it."
