Hexowatch is a tool designed for e-commerce business owners, marketing agencies, and UI designers. You can even see it as a partner that will give you updates on competitors by checking their websites for price changes, content, keywords, and even visuals.
You get nine different options for monitoring. Each option can be selected from an easy to understand interface and a short description. To start the process, add the URL and select what you wish to track. These options include HTML elements (such as price changes or product availability), keywords, technology, content, visuals, domain (such as changes in ownership), and automatic AI monitoring that gives you notifications when any changes are detected.
You can even decide which type of screen you would like to check these updates. There are 7 device sizes to choose from for the visual monitor. This tool can be integrated with email, Slack, Telegram, Google Sheets, and Zapier.
