I often wonder why smart watch makers market a watch (which isn't cheap), then continually and quickly keep updating.
The reason I ask is that I wanted to buy the LG Sport or Gear S3 or even the 42mm Apple2.
What turned me off was the waterproofing and battery life.
It can't be hard for these companies to look at what Garmin/Suunto have done with battery life, and in particular WR 10ATM to see what I mean.
Why would you buy a smartwatch that only is water resistant, having to take it off if you went to the pool or to the beach?
Yes, I know the Apple 2 is 5ATM, but really, that's not good enough and the battery life is poor.
When you pay $400-500 for these today, then in September or October, a new model is released (not a firmware update).
Don't you feel burnt by the fact you were never aware of the new model coming, it's only a modest update and still doesn't compete with the likes of Garmin's/Suunto's for battery life and 10ATM WR.
There are currently some 44 manufacturers of Smart watches (a lot I call Dumb watches). So why is the public's money being taken, for not a lot of shelf life and sub standard features.
Comments are going to be interesting from all owners, which is going to be helpful to all future buyers.......................................
