A smartwatch is a fully computerized wristwatch which nearly has all the features that your smartphone has. Smartwatches, like smartphones, have their own operating system and also run mobile apps (albeit limited). Some smartwatches may support a Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, or all of them. Such devices may host an array of features including a camera and video, accelerometer, thermometer, altimeter, barometer, chronography, compass, speaker, and even a slot for SD cards.
