The differences between hybrid and smartwatches
Hybrid watch: analog screen and a number of smart functions
A hybrid watch is a mix of an analog watch and a smart watch. Hybrid watches have a traditional dial with hands. You can connect a hybrid watch to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Are you receiving a message, call, or notification on your phone? A hybrid watch updates you with a vibration, light, or via the hands. Many hybrid watches also count your steps, calorie consumption, and measure your sleep. You can view this information in the corresponding app on your phone.
Smart watch: digital screen and extension of your smartphone
Smart watches differ from hybrid watches because they have a digital screen. You can use them as an extension of your smartphone. For example, it's possible to make calls and receive and send messages via a smartwatch. You can also install useful apps, such as Strava or Spotify. Do you want to consciously work on a healthier lifestyle with more exercise and better nutrition? A smartwatch offers help. Smartwatches, for example, have a heart rate and/or GPS sensor. This can give you more insight into your fitness, distance, and speed.
