Are you ready to jump into the smartwatch bandwagon? Wearing smartwatches is now becoming common but should you buy a smartwatch? Let’s find out! If you have been thinking about buying a smartwatch but is still undecided, take this simple test to find out if it is for you.
Check which ones apply to you
1. You are a watch wearer and you feel naked if you don’t wear a watch. You’re used to wearing one and wouldn’t mind the extra bulk that comes with the common smartwatches of today. There would be a huge adjustment if you jump from not wearing a watch to wearing a smartwatch. It might become too uncomfortable.
2. You love new gadgets and typically buy the new stuff before it becomes common. You love to try new things and can afford it. The smartwatch is definitely something that you should try before it becomes totally mainstream.
3. You’re a health buff or at least pretending and trying to be one. You’re probably thinking about getting a fitness tracker already. Or you might already have one. Counting steps has become a habit. Smartwatches provide more functionality than standard fitness trackers. Smartwatches are also generally more fashionable.
4. You’re always anxious about checking your phone. You get disturbed when you hear your phone sound off or feel it vibrate and would always want to know right away if it is urgent or if it can be ignored. This is true if you’re just obsessive compulsive about it or if your work requires you to respond right away for urgent situations.
5. You have 5 or more meetings in one day. You need to be constantly reminded of your next meeting.
Now, let’s see what your score means!
|0-1||Forget it. I’m not sure why you even considered buying one.|
|2-3||Yes, go for it as long as you can afford it.|
|4-5||What are you waiting for? It’s only a matter of time. Get one now!|
