What do you like seeing on your watch face more? Well known brands? Or key information? For those of you without a watch yet, this article is especially for you!
In today’s technological day and age, how do our traditional dress and sport watches compare against the newer, novel smartwatches? Which kind of watch wins out, and where?
Let’s take a timeout to discover the answers…
Regular, classic watches have long been a fashion piece for men and women alike! With a wide array of materials and looks, mechanical watches often have elegant, beautiful designs suitable for a professional look or a glamorous night. The mechanical portions are often a sight to behold as well. Their cousin, the digital sport watches, are perfect for a casual, sporty look!
On the other hand, smartwatches actually are also catching up in appearance. Some smartwatches have the unique squarish look but others are beautifully designed and look just like regular watches, complete with small intricate details and metal shades that are able to suit a professional image. Even the fitness watch wave, which includes fitness tracking capabilities, is sharing a similar form in some models.
On the outer portion, both regular watches and smartwatches may look similar at first glance. But if we were to look at strictly craftsmanship, some dress watches definitely win out due to their exquisite and unmatched design, and some designs may be dressier for formal occasions. Yet for the majority of us, both kinds of watches look fine for most situations!
Of course for regular watches, other than the obvious ones of telling the time, functions are quite limited to perhaps stopwatches, alarms or even rotation on World Time!
Smartwatches on the other hand, are an invention made for our modern times. They integrate specifically with our smartphones to provide us the information we need on demand! In fact, they may make us look less at our phones and focus more on those around us! There’s less of a need to worry about missing that important call or message!
For many dress watches, you can go bespoke – the act of requesting watches made to the specifications you desire. This could be a superior build quality and look, the type of movement, name engagement, or even down to the intricate details like the rotors! Some may even offer sports editions – just remember such craftsmanship does not come cheap, easily setting you back a couple of hundred dollars!
In the smartwatch world, we talk customisability in a wider term. Some models offer changeable straps to match your outfit for the day, and of course, you can even change watch faces and wallpapers to suit the mood and occasion! This means transforming your look in seconds just with a few taps. Certain watches have master apps to even customise what notifications you want showing up on your watch, letting you filter those which matter the most!
In the end, which watch one chooses depends on what one values – is it the unmatched elegance of certain dress watches, or the utility of smartwatches in our day to day lives? Each will always have their strengths and drawbacks.
