People are now preferring the smartwatches over the traditional analog watches as these provide way better features apart from just seeing the time, But one biggest problem of the smart watch is battery life as it lasts long just 2 days at the fullest by utilizing all the possible features
Coming to user interface , Google Wear OS leads at the front as it provides better way to interact with applications such as changing the watch face, Google Fit, Google Maps, Calendar, Contacts and all these you can avail in the smartwatch and currently Samsung is competing with Google using their own Tizen OS for smartwatches but it lacks better UI compared to Google Wear OS, but one main advantage is Samsung producing smartwatches with up to 7 days battery life even with regular usage on daily basis.
