I tried to find out exact answers to my questions but I was unlucky. So may be this topic will help all iphone users ho are keen to buy a smartwatch else from apple watch.
I have been looking for a kinda affordable sw for a long time but when you are a iphone user it is hard to find right one easily. As I understand full android smartwatches are kinda standalone devices but some people like me are wishing to use smartwatches not as a substitution but more like supplement accessory. So everything shows us that apple watch is best option but for me it is kinda expensive. But before than its price my main motivation to have sw is possibility of using various analog watch faces. Imagine having a magical watch that looks great whatever you wear today. All you have to do is finding ideal face for your outfit. So that at least for me a watch should be round not square. That is why ı do not like apple watch.
But also while having a great device on your wrist you may hope to get more than using different faces. you are wearing a complete computer eventually. Wouldn’t it be great to see notifications off twitter, instgram or whatsapp messages or calender reminders etc. Even incoming calls or controlling apps like spotify. But when you have iphone things ger complicated easily. So I contacted many sellers, manufacturers and read or watch many reviews, forums and get even more confused. Is it possible for me to use a non apple smart watch which works well with my iphone? I am still not sure maybe you good people help me?
So what I am looking for? What are my expectations?
- A round smart watch which I can use with many analog watch faces (seems that full android wathces steps ahead)
- To be notified of whatsapp messages (it would be even gret if I may reply them),
- Getting Twitter and Instagram notifications,
- Controlling spotify which is installed on my phone,
- Getting Calendar reminders
- Seeing and responding (at least rejecting) incoming calls with caller id (phonebook record name)
I know that most of full android watches have sim card slot but i will not use if with sim if buy one. So wifi is an option, in this case all ı may do to share my iphone’s internet to connect watch but this will drain both devices battery. So Bluetooth is the best option. I get an impression that I need a 3rd party app but most of them do not work stable and not in app store.
Long story short I want to use round multi faced smart watch with bt connection to my iphone hoping to have notifications listed above;
What should I bought?
