Intelligence on Your Wrist: Top 10 Smartwatches With Special Features

Smartwatches have firmly entered the life of modern man. And even though most of them offer a standard set of functions, like sending you notifications about, calling your friends, or posting Tweets, there are models that boast their “cherry on the cake” – unique features that are not characteristic of the general mass. We bring to your attention the top 10 of such gadgets.

Hyetis Crossbow

The design of the watch will seem ugly and unworthy of attention to most people. But this model has one advantage – it takes photos with a resolution of 41 megapixels, which can not boast of the lauded competitors by Apple, Xiaomi, and Samsung. A camera with a Carl Zeiss lens is responsible for the high quality of photos. But the brainchild of Hyetis has another trump in its pocket. The immediate timepiece here is pure mechanics. Although you should not expect anything else from the Swiss manufacturer.


When there is no need for new-fangled features, but only battery life is important, you should consider buying a Pebble. The screen of the device uses a special electronic paper. This can be found in some representatives of the e-book world. Thanks to it, battery life greatly increases. And this is the key advantage of Pebble. Otherwise, it is an unremarkable smartwatch with a high cost.

Matrix PowerWatch

This is the world’s first full-featured smartwatch that charges from the heat of the wrist. It is based on the MATRIX thermoelectric power supply. It converts the heat energy of the human body into electrical energy. Useful when you rarely have a power outlet handy. As for other features, there is nothing special here: sleep tracker, calorie counter, pedometer – a standard set for any “smart” watch. Separately, we can mention water resistance to a depth of 50 meters.

Garmin Venu

Garmin Venu is the largest feature set for monitoring your well-being. It has everything you need to keep yourself in shape: a Pulse Ox sensor to analyze blood oxygen saturation, a stress level sensor to remind you to relax, a heart rate measurement function, and a sleep monitor. There’s more original stuff, too: the Body Battery feature. It measures body energy in real time. There are also modes for sports activities. Unfortunately, the price tag of the watch is not the lowest.

Aimoto Disney Cold Heart

Inexpensive children’s watches, made in the style of the animated film “Cold Heart” by Disney. Focusing on the youngest users saved the manufacturer from having to cram a mountain of unnecessary functions into the device. Instead, the clock installed the application “Knopka 911”. Thanks to it, parents will always be aware of the whereabouts of their child, and will be able to track the history of his movements and the number of steps taken.

Omron HeartGuide

The world’s only watch with a tonometer function. A small cuff is built into the strap, which allows you to take measurements using the classical method. This feature is essential for those with heart problems or who monitor their health closely. All readings are transmitted to the HeartAdvisor app. But it will cost a pretty tidy sum – it is easier to buy a regular tonometer. The rest of the features are standard for most smartwatches.

KOSPET Optimus 2

The watch appeared in the summer of 2021. In addition to powerful “iron” in the form of the processor MediaTek Helio P22, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of ROM, the device has two features. The first is the battery capacity of 1 260 mAh. With its help in Lite mode (displaying time, calls and sms-messages) the watch will work up to five days. The second feature is a retractable camera with 13 megapixels and a flash. The perfect solution for selfies. KOSPET Optimus 2 also boasts a stylish design, the modern Android 10.7 operating system and two SIM card slots (4G LTE).

Casio Edifice EQB-500

Manufacturers solve the problem of autonomy in different ways. Casio took a rather rare path – they supplemented the built-in battery with a solar cell, increasing the battery life to almost infinity. This is in theory. In practice, it all comes down to battery life and operating conditions. The watch is sure to please men. They have a brutal appearance and an abundance of hands on the dial. It’s all designed in classic colors.


Budget model with a very important function in a complex epidemiological situation – a thermometer. A built-in sensor measures the temperature of the human body and reports when the readings go beyond 36.1 to 37°C. Otherwise, it is a simple smart watch with a small set of functions: heart rate measurement, sleep monitoring, demonstration of synoptic forecast, counting steps and calories, etc.


Finally, we will tell you about one more model from GARMIN, known as GARMIN INSTINCT. Their main feature is WR-100 water resistance. The device withstands static pressure of 100 meters of water column. However, this does not mean that you can dive to a depth of 100 meters with such a watch. A huge plus is the watch case itself made of fiber-reinforced polymer – it does not get scratched or scuffed. The military-standard MIL-STD-810G manufacture allows you to take the gadget on the most extreme hikes. This is a model for people who lead a truly active life away from civilization.
