Posted by William Sattelberg on October 4, 2018

As a people, we’ve never been more connected than we are today. After Apple reinvented the concept of a smartphone in 2007, the adoption rates skyrocketed, and more than three quarters of American adults now own and use a smartphone as part of their daily life. In many ways, this constant source of connection is a good thing, allowing users to receive breaking news alerts, weather warnings, directions to nearby areas, and of course, messages from users all around the world. On the other hand, the constant connection means we’re never fully aware of the world around us. Even in places where it should be easy to take in our surroundings, like when waiting in line at a store or walking down a city sidewalk, you’re likely to see people with their phones out, checking up on their Twitter feed or looking through their collection of Snapchat stories. It feels nearly impossible to escape the barrage of notifications and the continuous feeling of being connected to the internet at all times. Something as simple as having a conversation with someone becomes a challenge to avoid looking at your smartphone.

Luckily, a problem created by gadgets can also be solved by gadgets. Smartwatches have been a product on the market for a few years now, and while there is no singular perfect smartwatch, it is an incredibly interesting product lineup. There are watches for all different kinds of people and interests, from smaller, more fashion-focused watches to sport watches designed to track your personal fitness, to watches that mix and match both types of devices. And while a smartwatch might seem like an unnecessary gadget, using it as a utility throughout your day can help you keep your phone in your pocket in social situations or in important meetings, only pulling it out to look at a specific notification when absolutely necessary.

If you’re tired of interrupting conversations with your smartphone, or you’re looking for something to keep track of your physical activity throughout the day, there’s really nothing better you can grab than a smartwatch to help you through your day. They may not revolutionize your world like the smartphone did, but when used correctly, they can make your day just a little bit easier. Let’s take a look at the best smartwatches for Android users.
