Gli smartwatch stanno spopolando durante questo 2014 e oltre a visualizzare le notifiche senza avere accesso allo smartphone sono utilizzato in maniera massiccia dagli sportivi per monitorare la loro attività sportiva ma anche contare i passi, sapere tutti i km fatti durante la corsa e monitorare i battiti del cuore in modo da avere sempre sotto controllo l’attività sportiva sotto tutti i punti di vista.
