The truth is that for many decades the world of watchmaking consisted, in general, of the same mechanisms (see here about them ). There were of course innovations such as clock-calculators or sun-powered clocks. However, the last "revolution" in the magical world of watches goes back many years, in 1969, with the production of the first watch powered by a quartz battery.

Since then the space had remained relatively stable until the technological boom and advancement of smartphones brought smartwatches to the fore. Although there have been some isolated and not particularly commercial efforts in the past, smartwatches emerged as a true product that marries technology with watchmaking when Apple, in 2014, introduced the first Apple Watch.

Today, smartwatches are worn on many hands and the numbers are staggering! This is, of course, due to the fact that in addition to being a stylish piece of jewelry, a smartwatch has many extremely useful functions. For example, a smartwatch can tell you the time (obviously!), the weather , the temperature , find your cell phone, work as a GPS (via Google Maps), measure your blood pressure , the steps you've taken , the calories you have burned, show you notifications from incoming calls and messages, play music and much more. Hence the well-known saying "yes, but does it make coffee?" it's not too far from reality (especially if you have a bluetooth coffee maker).

At Goldy we have a particularly large collection of branded smartwatches and we present to you some of them:

To get you started, we suggest some affordable but great-featured options:

DAS-4 's SG04 offers many functions in a package affordable for everyone and with a beautiful design it deserves a place on the list.        

DAS-4 's 70056 has all the features one would ask for in a smartwatch, and the square dial-display makes it a very attractive choice.

The DAS-4 70001 has every function one would want from a smartwatch while the leather strap gives it a more classic and timeless style.

Brands such as Michael Kors , Fossil and Armani Exchange have many excellent proposals made of quality materials and many possibilities creating the unique jewelry-tool combination:
