So these were the 10 best smartwatches for women available in 2021. If you have any other smartwatch in your mind, which should be included in this list then kindly comment below 🙂
I have a fitbit versa, purely because I thought it was one of the prettier smart watches on the market. You have really opened my eyes to other more feminine brands such as Kate Spade and Misfit Phase having smart watches. Thanks!
Hi. Your introductory paragraph is on point. I would definitely be interested in wanting to learn more about these women smart watches. There were graphics to support your statements too. for me that’s a great start.
As I read further into the article, I became more intrigued in wanting to know the products and felt like they were a part of me.
I, however, felt that you could have been more insightful in bringing across the details on the sleep tracking device….eg, why it is important to get proper sleep and not having to worry about oversleeping with the ownership of the smart watch.
Up to this point, my impulse was still high until you got the the part where you started listing the top 10 ladies watches. I started loosing interest from there. I think you went off too much into overselling the products and at that point, i’m thinking, you are trying to hard to convince me to buy.
In my opinion, you were giving me too many options and i’m beginning to wonder which one would I want to buy as they were all competing with each other. At this point i was comparing prices and features and wondering why this one is cheaper but carries more features. By the time I got to number then I was just going through the motion. I’ve totally lost interest. I had too much information and I could not make a decision.
I needed too learn more about the product and its credibility. You started me on a high but left me hanging in mid air as you didn’t give a reason why I should want to invest in one of these watches. The graphics were good but you didn’t compliment them. overall I would grade you five out of ten.
Thank you for allowing me to participate in this exercise, as I look forward to having my feedback soon. I am now able to look at other articles, make comparison and pull from each with the view of each one help each. Much blessings and great success.
I found your article interesting as I do not own a smartwatch, actually, I have never thought about even buying one. It has spurred me on to do more research about what a smartwatch is and if I need one. As I do use heart rate tracking, it was interesting that you may need to choose between a smartwatch or a fitness tracker.
Thank you for this article.
I really like the design of the Misfit Phase. It looks very simple, but yet classy. Also, it comes with a great price, so I would probably go for this one 🙂
Your article is quite timely for me (no pun intended lol). I was actually considering purchasing the Apple smart watch but after reading through the article and learning more about the other brands I’m now considering the Samsung Galaxy Watch or Michael Kors. I love that you’ve done the research on each of these watches and have made it available to your readers in one article.
I started looking for a smart watch over the weekend and realised I needed to do some homework before I wasted a whole lot of money – it’s about what features I need over which ones I don’t so I had to make a list – this post couldn’t have come at a better time and I thank you for explaining the differences between fashion, function, fitness etc so that I understand better which one I should target.
