I was lucky enough to trial the Huawei smart watch (are we saying smart watch or smartwatch?) for a week. Not being much of a runner, I found most of the apps to be gimmicks and found that, for me, it was all about the notifications. With selected notifications on my wrist, I freed myself from constantly checking my phone throughout the day, mostly just ignoring everything until I could look at it all in one go. Plus I’ve been missing a lot of reminders, texts and calls on my phone recently, even with it on vibrate. With notifications on your wrist instead, it was impossible to miss them. Very reassuring when you’re a new father. I’m definitely converted.
