Due to the fact that there are so many Bluetooth watch for Android devices on the market, users can choose the design according to their taste. The cost of the gadget can range from 2-3 thousand RUR, up to 20 000-30 000 USD. Of course, there is also the rule: the higher the value, the higher quality and more functionality you get.
How the Bluetooth watch works
Note that as a rule, these watches can work with any Android device. First, you need to pair your phone with gadget. Let’s look at this process on an example of smart Bluetooth watches for Android Motorola Moto 360. Today they occupy a leading position. Of course, the price of such a device is quite high, which is why not everyone can afford such a luxury.
So, in order to pair you need to download and install the application Android Wear. Run it.
If the Bluetooth is turned off, the application will ask to enable it.
After that the system will search for gadgets that are available for connecting. You will be left only to choose the name of your watch from the list.
Next, follow the instructions on the screen. After pairing, the application will synchronize the data. If you have any difficulties, in the bottom right corner you can click “Connecting assistance”. Clicking on it will take you to a site with detailed instructions.
If smart Bluetooth watch for Android is equipped with Wi-Fi adapter, you can enable the synchronization with the cloud in the Android Wear app. In this case, the data between the watch and the phone will take place via Wi-Fi connection.
After synchronization, you can configure notifications. That is, you will be able to choose applications, messages from which will be displayed on the watch.
Note that the Smart Watch is equipped with an accelerometer, thanks to which the screen of the watch is activated by a small shake-up. In other words, when you raise your hand and turn the gadget to you, the latter automatically turns on the display. This means that you do not need to press the awakening button.
As mentioned above, many companies produce similar devices. They all have differences. Some manufacturers use Gorilla Glass which is resistant to scratches, others apply the usual glass and the cheaper models have plastic screens. Of course, everything depends on the price. The more expensive the device is, the more high-quality and reliable materials you get. For example, Motorola Moto 360 hours have 3rd generation Gorilla Glass and jewelry stainless steel. In addition, the gadget is resistant to brief submersion (less than one meter). But the cost of such a device starts from 12,000 RUR.
Despite the external and functional differences, all Bluetooth wrist watch for Android work on the same principle. The developers simplified the pairing, so you should not have any difficulties. Note that today the Google Play (app store) has more and more programs written specifically for smart hours. Of course, most of them are useless, however, some apps are able to expand the functionality and make use of the Smart Watch more comfortable.
