In a nutshell, its dual-layered watch face comes with an LCD screen on top that offers a long-lasting battery life of up to 30 days. This “essential” screen will allow you to keep using and enjoying the smartwatch for weeks on end, making it an ideal long-term hiking or camping companion if you won’t be able to recharge the watch for some time. The relatively wide screen allows you to access a multitude of apps without fumbling with the buttons – something I hate with other smartwatches. It also pairs pretty quickly to various smartphone types and can receive texts and other app alerts. If you pair the watch with an Android device, you can send quick replies to text messages or calls at the touch of a button. This is a really handy feature for those who primarily wear the watch while exercising and who don’t want to mess up their groove in the middle of a workout.

Keep in mind that Google Assistant is unique to each Google account. If your phone is shared among more than one Google Account, make sure you’re using your account before continuing. You can change accounts at any time by pressing the Home button until the Assistant menu appears, choosing Settings, and heading to Accounts. With the $25 monthly subscription, you also can control your system with Google Assistant, and SimpliSafe’s devices will respond quickly to your voice commands. Ecobee’s budget model and its companion app offer most of the same smarts as more expensive competing models, including the $250 Nest thermostat. It responds to all of the same voice commands and the intuitive controls make manual scheduling easy.
