Smartwatch Specs under Discussion

by Neil Mawston | Aug 19, 2022

Interesting to see the wearables community challenging recently the official measurement and definition of specs for multiple smartwatch and fitness devices.

Some folks on social media and elsewhere are challenging the claimed thickness of smartwatch casings. Others debate whether a fitness tracker should be weighed with or without its wristband. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is sometimes said to be weighed officially without its wristband (source).

It is certainly an interesting debate. Without industry-standard definitions for measuring, weighing, etc., it can get very difficult to compare wearable devices across specs, categories, and brands. Consumers may end up comparing apples with oranges.
