Do smartwatches have Internet?
Before we answer the question, we want to break down the topic so that our readers will be able to understand it properly. Hence, we will ask a few questions of our own and explain.
First of all, what do you mean by ‘internet’? It is very important that you, as a reader, ask yourself this. What are you really looking to do with the Internet - do you want to use your smartwatch like a smartphone and browse the Internet? Can you handle the reading website on that tiny screen?
From these questions, you should be now thinking is really beneficial for us to have web browsers on the smartwatches or not. Nowadays, there are many top-end smartwatches with LTE or calling facilities. This means you can use your smartwatch as a smartphone as far as just calling is concerned, but there is hardly any smartwatch with an app store or web browser. You will have to connect to your wifi if you want to get message notifications and download watch faces and music.
Smartwatches do not have ‘internet’ in the sense that they cannot be used in the same way as smartphones. Otherwise, it can very well connect to your wifi to synchronize with your smartphone companion app.
There are a few large screen Chinese smartwatches with an app store, browser, and Internet; you can actually use it as a smartphone, but considering the size of it, there is no point in wearing the device on your wrist. It becomes heated and can damage the skin. In short, you cannot wear this smartwatch and not feel discomfort. It is not functional, and it is just for showing off.
The bottom line is - there are smartwatches with the Internet, but they are not functional as smartwatches because of their large size and screens. If you want to browse the Internet, just get a smartphone instead.
