Why PeekSmith 3 is better than an Apple Watch or a smart band?
PeekSmith was designed for magicians, and the messages are staying on the screen. Apple Watch and smart bands are turning off their screens after a while to save battery, and you cannot turn this feature off. PeekSmith is compatible with several apps has no Apple Watch or other smart device support, too.

The exact answer depends on your brightness settings and usage pattern.
