Thinking about a smartwatch for business? Here are the best timepieces for your workday
Asus ZenWatch 2
Asus’ second generation of its ZenWatch hasn’t generated the same fanfare as many of its competitors, but is still an extremely viable option for businesses – as well as a more affordable one with its £200 price-tag.
The display, although crisp and clear, is slightly smaller than that of many other smartwatches on the market, but the ZenWatch 2 makes up for this with features such as a great design, a built in microphone, Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi capabilities.
Performance won’t be an issue thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and a faster charging time than the previous ZenWatch means you won’t be stuck waiting around for it to charge.
Another premium Android Wear device, the Huawei watch is a smart-looking yet slightly pricey option that is also compatible with iOS, giving employees the best of both worlds.
The display is one of the standout features, boasting a 400×400 pixel resolution and a range of brightness setting to cover all weather conditions. The premium design and build quality means it certainly wouldn’t look out of place in a business environment a two-day battery life shouldn’t leave you caught short.
Performance wise, there are better options out there as the watch is prone to some noticeable lag, but Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity leaves all bases covered, as does the plethora of apps available.
The Vector Luna
As with the Asus ZenWatch 2, the Vector Luna has been largely kept out of the spotlight but provides some serious competition for the established pack to think about.
Vector took a slightly different route than its competitors when it comes to features, with a simpler, less cluttered approach removing some of the noise that can accompany the Apple Watch and Samsung Gear. In face, the Vector Luna is probably one of the most business-focused smartwatches on the market, with features such as an auto discreet mode for meeting being a perfect example.
It also boasts an incredible 30-day battery life, removing the need to carry around that extra charger on business trips or external meetings and making this watch well worth considering.
