Smartwatches have become an integral part of our lives in the past decade. A watch used to only tell you the time, but now you can answer texts, find directions, and even track your fitness goals, all with a watch. As the batteries of smartwatches can last longer, and they don't have complicated programs running in the background, restarting them every couple of weeks should be enough, says Trinh. Don't miss these other cool things your smartwatch can do.

TVs are doing much more than they used to, so they too need a break every now and then as well. According to Shull, you should be restarting your smart TV at least once a month. Doing so helps clean out the clutter, and prevent freezing mid-stream, sign-in troubles, and unresponsive services. Restarting can also cancel out multiple tasks from interfering with each other and allow your TV to start fresh, according to Shull. If you're thinking about getting a smart TV, make sure you read up on what your TV salesperson won't tell you.
