Smartwatches are sill not a standard equipment for the average person, but a time comes when they become as common as a smartphone. They still may not be perfect, by they are getting better and better as the years pass by. Largely they are still slaves to a smartphone but they can accomplish things on their own and can even do some tricks you weren’t expecting. Check out the best smartwatches available on the market which you can use in a combination with your mobile device.
Apple Watch Series 4
For those who have an iPhone or similar iOS device, the Apple Watch Series 4 seems to be the best option. It has a large screen and it is comfortable for wearing. The battery life is reliable and it has a lot of different fitness tracking and health-related features. The Apple Watch is best at providing quick access to the notifications that come in to your phone, and you can even reply to message directly from your wrist. You can also use it as a speakerphone or for controlling the music that is playing on your mobile device. The Apple Watch also has GPS, heart rate tracking for workouts and even the ability to warn you if it detects certain heart problems.
Samsung Galaxy Watch
For Android phone users the best pick is the Samsung’s Galaxy Watch. It can work on iOS devices as well, but for best results, we recommend pairing it with an Android phone preferably a Samsung. The Galaxy Watch has almost all features you would expect on a modern smartwatch: GPS, touchscreen, long-lasting battery, voice control, mobile payments, and heart rate monitoring. It has a circular shape with an “always-on” mode which makes it look like a regular modern watch. A nice part is the rotating bezel, which is a natural and simple way to glide through the software interface.
Fitbit Versa Smartwatch
A nice alternative of the watches mentioned above, is the Fitbit Versa Smartwatch. It has its own Fitbit operating system which is compatible with iPhones and Android phones. It has a flat, lightweight build and the interface can be changed to suit your style. The Fitbit Versa Smartwatch tracks a variety of health and fitness related things and it has 15+ exercise modes. The good part is that the battery can last up to 4 days on a single charge, but the notification support is not particularly brilliant.
Fossil Explorist HR Gen 4
The Fossil Explorist HR Gen 4 has heart rate tracking, GPS, rapid charging, it supports smartphone notifications and can be paired with an Android or iOS device. It is powered with Wear OS by Google, which can be clumsy at times, but it also has Google Assistant and you can download third-party apps through the Google Play Store. The watch also has a touchscreen functionality, microphone, music storage & controls, customizable watch faces, custom goal & alarm settings.
Skagen Falster 2
This smartwatch is similar to the one we mentioned above. It has almost the same functionalities like heart rate tracking, Google Pay, GPS, rapid charging, smartphone notifications, touchscreen, Google Assistant, microphone, music storage & controls, customizable watch faces, custom goal & alarm settings etc. It is also swim-proof and the battery life is around 24 hours. Skagen Falster 2 has the same Wear OS and can be connected to an Android or iOS device.
