Industry Smartwatch vs. Consumer Smartwatch

Smartwatches are increasingly becoming our everyday companion – in the private as well as in the industrial sector. But what are the differences between industrial and consumer Smartwatches?

One thing is certain: the market for Smartwatches is growing rapidly and more and more suppliers are joining with improved models.

The Smartwatch in the private sector is able to receive mails, messages, WhatsApp messages and calls in the consumer area. The full appointment calendar is sent directly to the watch, giving a clear overview of appointments even in stressful situations. It records fitness data such as calories, steps and pulse and shows whether you have been active enough during the day. In addition, the sleep behavior can be analyzed. Also an alarm clock is integrated in the sense of vibration on the wrist.

The industry Smartwatch works similarly. With a Smartwatch (and the associated software) integrated in the company, it is no longer left by chance whether an employee notices immediately that a machine has a fault. Thus, the industrial Smartwatch reduces machine downtimes, increases efficiency and product quality, implements targeted maintenance, reduces the susceptibility of machines to faults and speeds up decision-making processes.

Their use also simplifies communication between individual employees and saves money because of the optimized communication channels between man and machine. The system can also send messages about machine malfunctions directly to the right employee who has the appropriate skills to solve the problem. This ensures that machine downtimes are detected, processed and resolved as optimally as possible and in the shortest possible time.

Overview of your benefits:

Consumer Smartwatch
