I’m looking to purchase a smart watch and am wondering if anyone knows which will be compatible with a Moto G5 plus. I am not going to get an Apple product so any others out there folks have had success with?
Pretty much any smartwatch that uses Bluetooth will work with any Android phone…even the Apple watch (to a limited extent).
What smartwatch u get really is based on what u need most, a fitness tracker/health stats first, with some smart phone tie in abilities, get a Fitbit, a actual smartwatch, get a Samsung Galaxy watch or some Android wear watch.
Note that, Republic Wireless does not support a SIM card for standalone LTE use on smartwatches. But u can pair the watch to your phone that is on RW, using Bluetooth.
Thanks for the info. I had seen some reviews out there on some of the watches indicating complications with some types of phones so I thought I should check it out before I actually make a purchase.
You will want to make sure that the watch you select doesn’t require a newer Android version than your phone has. I believe the G5+ is updated to Oreo, so you wouldn’t want anything that requires Android P or newer.
Can you tell us what you’re hoping to be able to do with the smartwatch? As @SpeedingCheetah mentioned, some are designed more as fitness trackers.
I hope we’ll see some people using smartwatches chime in with some good suggestions from personal experience.
Well I like my galaxy active2 paired with my s9+, but ymmv
