A few years ago, sports monitoring wristbands were the order of the day. Relatively economical, functional, lightweight and comfortable devices to carry , that apart from tracking our sport activity allow us to receive notifications, calls, set alarms and a long etc.
However, with the passage of time, it seems that the smartband have gone losing bellows , leaving way to smart watches. Do not, we are not talking about Android Wear , an operating system that does not finish taking off due to the very high price of the devices that incorporate it. Today, we talk about how is the current market for smartwatch and smartbands, and why it is worth or not worth getting the second .
One of the main reasons why bracelets like the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 had a great sales success, was, basically, for its price . Very users are willing to spend hundreds of euros on a smartwatch, so the bands were plated as cheap alternatives, with very trimmed but similar functions.
All this changed with the arrival of Amazfit. The firm that we all related to Xiaomi, started selling smartwatches at a very reduced price , making the smartbands the ones that started to lose their meaning. For example,, a watch that can be found for about 50 euros , and that fulfills practically the same functions as a smartwatch of hundreds and hundreds of euros.
Notification center (you can read the content of the messages)
GPS monitoring and route mapping
Heart rate monitoring
For just a few euros more, we can find the Amazfit Pace, a watch that has some extra features, and a better design. Between 50 and 100 euros for watches that match or better than an Apple Watch that costs 6 times more . If they are already a bargain, it loses enough sense to opt for a sports bracelet, which except the Mi Band 2, walk on the same price as the two watches mentioned.
For a purely sporting use we recommend the Bip, resistant and lightweight, while for those who want a great smartwatch, we chose the Pace. Amazfit has been a revolution in this type of gadgets , removing the hype for the presentation of the My Band 3, which will be presented this Thursday, and leaving us with a lot of desire for the Amazfit Beats -the successor of the bip-.
Our summary opinion is that before opting for a smartband, take a look at the Amazfit catalog , since it is the signature with the best quality-price ratio in the market at this time.
