After a year-long battle with the pandemic, it’s time to treat yourself with a new smartwatch that you can find in Malaysia. The best smartwatch does not exist but a suitable one does. Smartwatch has become an essential gadget in this generation. It’s stylish, it’s modern and some are even helpful for recording fitness activities.
Smartwatch might look like your ordinary watch. But they do have a display that shows notifications that are synced with your phone. You can even change the theme layout, background images and make phone calls.
As for Hybrid Smartwatch, it doesn’t offer as many features as the former one. It has a classic analog watch appearance and uses alerts through sound or vibration.
Then, we have Fitness Tracker. It is the same as a smartwatch but has more features that are good for your physical activities. It can help to detect your heartbeat and record the period of your activity.
If you are an Apple product junkie in Malaysia, this one is the best fit for you. The Series 7 smartwatch retains the same starting price as its predecessor, Apple Watch Series 6. The Apple Watch Series 7 in Malaysia comes in two materials: Aluminium and Stainless Steel. The base model with an aluminium body starts from RM1,749 while the stainless steel option is priced from RM2,999.
