With all the modern technology we have these days, a highly functional watch is essential especially for people who have an active or busy lifestyle. Whatever kind of lifestyle you and your friends have, versatility and functionality will surely be a huge factor in choosing your daily gadget.
Hybrid watches are great for any type of day and outfit, may it be a chit chat with a friend, a business meeting, or an exciting activity day with your family. With the upsurge of hybrid watch products in the market, it may be overwhelming to check out each one you see online or in physical shops. To help you with that dilemma, here are our best hybrid watch recommendations:
Garmin Vivomove 3 displays simplicity and sophistication with its classic analog design but with advanced features such as its fitness and daily activity tracker. It lets you stay connected with its smart notifications when you get phone calls, messages, emails, and more. What makes it stand out from most hybrid watches in the market is its hidden touchscreen display which reacts to your movements and only gets seen when needed.
Withings Move ECG’s seamless tracking is great for physical activities such as walking, running, biking, swimming, and many others. It can recognize more than 10 activities and allows you to monitor the calories you burn and the distance you cover for every activity you make.
With its always-on readout display, it is easy to preview your calls and text and other notifications. HR stands for “heart rate” which means that this watch is equipped with a heart-rate sensor that tracks your physical movements and wellness activities. Fossil Hybrid HR is also designed with a rugged yet laid back look, with integrated mechanical hands and the other easily readable components.
Withings Steel HR Sport comes in a stylish form with its stainless-steel case and uniquely designed silicone wristband. Specially made for physical activities, it has the typical smartwatch features, but enhanced with a VO2 Max estimation that creates the user’s fitness level assessment and wide range of activity recognition as it recognizes 30 different sports!
The Fossil Commuter looks like your typical everyday watch with its simple dial and leather wristband. You would not even think it is a smartwatch! It does not look like it, but it can track your notifications and let you know if there is any by a gentle buzz. One of its best features is that it does not require charging unlike other smartwatches, and it is compatible with both Android and iOs systems.
