Smartwatches are personal digital devices in the shape of a wristwatch. The latest smartwatches have a fixed graphical display for everyday usage and can be used independently or linked via Bluetooth with a smartphone to take full advantage of its features like receive calls and text messages, view photos, stream music, and use the internet. Smartwatches not only can be paired with phones but can also be paired with headsets to listen to music or sensors which can be used for working out or keeping track of your heart rate. Smartwatches became extremely popular after Apple’s 2015 conference when they announced the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch (First Generation) was released on April 24, 2015 after being revealed on September 9, 2014.
