I hope life has been treating you as well as it has been treating me. (I will pass my last semester of courses, so I graduate college mid-May with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and minor in business administration!!! And, I have job interviews coming up! Life is just going great, okay?)
Anyway, I have a different type of blog for you all today. This blog post is actually a review of a review. A member of reviews.com reached out to me to write a post about their smartwatch review post — which you may read here. They read my review about my Apple Watch, and they thought I could provide my thoughts on their smartwatch review post.
It is pretty cool to have others want your opinion on their work because they value your opinion and enjoy your blog. It was pretty empowering, and it reminded me why I love to blog so much.
In terms of their post, I loved it. They provide a fully fleshed out review about the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS, the Samsung Gear Sport, and the Fossil Q Venture. They discuss the watches’ features, design, navigability, and switchable bands. They get into the specifics about every detail, down to the time it takes each watch to notify you about a phone call.
Even though they focus on these three watches, they do discuss several other watches they tested to write this review. They discuss where these other watches fell short compared to the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS, the Samsung Gear Sport, and the Fossil Q Venture. In fact, they kind of call out these other companies about their watches; and, it is pretty funny to me. I pushed a burst of air out of my nose several times because of them. (For those who do not get the joke, it is the millennials’ version of laughing at stuff online.) But, even though they discuss these other watches’ downfalls, they do highlight where they excel and offer readers alternatives to the core three watches.
While they may poke fun at these companies and point out their watches’ flaws, the writers are very objective in this review. They neither praise one watch over the others nor completely bash one watch or company. I liked this. Some “reviews” are just subjective posts in which the writer(s) praise one specific thing and bash the others. Good job, reviews.com, you have quite an objective post.
I think I loved the chart at the end of this review the most. The writers provide an in-depth but easy to understand chart that highlights specifics about the watches they reviewed, such as the costs, battery life, charging style, and storage. This provides readers the opportunity to compare and contrast each smartwatch easily and quickly.
Overall, reviews.com did an excellent job. I urge you all to give them a chance and read their reviews. After reading their smartwatch review, I know I will return to see what else they post because, honestly, they provide you with all the information you need to make an educated decision about buying or doing something.
(On an entirely unrelated note, because I graduate college soon, I will have the time to return to my blog and post more content. A lot of new exciting stuff to come in terms of post-graduate life, such as getting my first apartment, starting my career, etc. Be on the lookout, all.)
