Gone are the days when the only thing watches did was tell the time. Technology has evolved through the years, so why should watches be left behind? The term 'smart watch' is pretty self explanatory. Smart watches have gained immense popularity in the past few years among youngsters and fitness freaks for all the right reasons. And let's not forget that they are stylish, too. Yeah, I know you must be thinking 'why should I invest in something like this?' Well, stop wondering because here are 6 reasons why you should get one for yourself. 

1. It can do more than just tell the time. 

This is a no-brainer guys. You know how traditional watches just tell the time and maybe the date and year but that's about it. Well, that won't be the case if you get yourself a smart watch. A smart watch offers multiple features. You can get notifications, reply to messages, set a reminder, pick up or reject a call and much more.

2.  Endless customisation options are available.

One of the main features that smart watch owners like in particular is the fact that there are quite a few customisation options available. These days, smart watches come with changeable wrist bands. If you think that is all, let me tell you most of the smart watches come in different shapes, sizes and designs to choose from. Let me elaborate. For example, if you are going out for dinner, you can remove the sporty wrist band and put on a luxurious one. Woohoo!

3. Because it does not need any batteries.

Most normal watches still have batteries and when the batteries die you have to get new ones. This seems like quite a task because everyone doesn't have the time to go to the market and buy new batteries and get them put. That is where smart watches have a clear advantage. Yes, you guessed it right. Smart watches are rechargeable nowadays which is quite a cool feature. All you have to do is charge your watch when the battery is about to die. Pretty simple, right?

4. It is great for carrying out mundane activities.

Another cool feature that a smart watch has is that they get connected to your phone. You can receive notifications, type out simple short messages, set an alarm or even set a reminder. There are a host of things that you can do and fiddle around with. They are like tiny computers that are there to make your life a lot easier.

It comes as no surprise that smart watches have started focusing on fitness in order to keep things relevant. Most smart watches come with a motion tracking sensor, a heart rate monitor, sleep tracker and much more. These are like Fitbit bands that can do quite a bit of multi-tasking too.

6. Hell yeah, they are quite affordable.

Affordability is again something that works to your advantage. Buying a smart watch won't burn a hole in your pocket or cost you a dime. You can buy a decent smart watch just within Rs 1,500 to 2,500 which is quite impressive given the kind of features it has to offer. What say?
