1) Apple Watch Series 7

When compared to all of the smartwatches we have reviewed, Apple Watch Series 7 is the perfect option for your Apple device. If you’re searching for a smartwatch for your iPhone, this is the product for you.

Design & Features

I mean, the design is fantastic, but the true measure of its success is how indistinguishable it is from the rest of the case. Casual glances won’t reveal that Series 7 is so different. In the meantime, the thin bezels help to draw attention to the watch’s larger screen. Additionally, the Apple Watch is now more durable, with an IP6X rating for dust resistance and improved Ion-X glass. It doesn’t seem like a significant change, but these small tweaks contribute to the greatness of the watch.

WatchOS 8 is adding more features to the Apple Watch Series 7. New watch faces will allow the larger screen to be better utilized, and with more room to spare, notifications will be able to show more detailed information. Moreover, accessing the Watch is a tad faster now.

Wellness

Wellness remains a core focus. The Apple Watch Series 7 can measure your heart rate and detect irregularities in it, take ECG readings, and send emergency alerts if you have fallen and can’t get up. On the fitness side, it includes features like timed exercises, exercising prompts, and dozens of exercise plans. If you like fitness or taking care of your health, the Apple Watch is a great choice. The Apple Watch Series 7 can last more than a day and a half when in normal use.

Price

Prices for the Series 7 Apple Watch start at $399 for the 41mm model and $429 for the 45mm model. If you get the GPS + Cellular versions of the models with a fancy strap, prices will increase.

2) Ticwatch Pro 3 GPS

The [Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3] is the only smartwatch running Wear OS software right now. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor, which is more powerful and more energy-efficient than the Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor found in other Wear OS smartwatches. Smartwatches with the latest technology will last longer.

It can also last for up to three days without recharging since it saves a lot of battery power when it is in ambient mode. TicWatch Pro 3 can last for up to three days without recharging.

A heart rate sensor, blood oxygen level detection, exercise, health tracking, and IP68 water resistance are all included in the watch.

With an update to Google and Samsung’s Wear OS 3 software coming in late 2022, the TicWatch Pro 3 is a great value, and it outperforms the competition. In addition to the 4G LTE versions of its Ticwatch Pro 3, Mobvoi is also offering a 4G LTE version of the Ticwatch Pro 3.

3) Fitbit Versa 2

Not everyone can afford to drop $400 on a smartwatch, so we recommend the Fitbit Versa 2 as the best affordable option under $200. We like this budget watch because it offers a lot of features for the price. This wearable has all of these: Fitbit’s robust fitness-tracking abilities (including auto-workout detection), sleep tracking, water resistance, connected GPS, blood oxygen tracking, and six-day battery life. One other important thing is that the Versa 2 supports Fitbit Pay using NFC and it also has Amazon Alexa integration for voice commands. With these things, we’ve seen it as low as $100.

4) Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

Though there were few upgrades to the latest version of Samsung’s popular Galaxy Watch, it doesn’t mean the Watch 5 isn’t still the best smartwatch for Android users. The aforementioned minor upgrades include a more durable screen and refined curvature that doesn’t sound exciting, but it ensures that the Watch 5 is more resistant and dependable. Plus, the Galaxy Watch offers the most complete health and fitness tracking on Wear OS and the company added a sleep coaching feature this year that is designed to help guide you to better rest.

If you’re okay with big watches, try the Watch 5 Pro. It is a bit more expensive at $450, but it has an extra-large titanium case (45mm), a more durable screen, and a larger battery. This Samsung watch is marketed as an outdoor device, but it’s better thought of as a big timepiece. It offers the same features as the other two models, except you can get turn-by-turn directions while hiking and biking.

Moreover, all three watches are water-resistant, so they can track swims, withstand storms, and last over a day (without the Always On Display). Furthermore, Wear OS 3.5 is so similar to Samsung’s Tizen OS that longtime wearers need not worry about adjusting to the new software. A well-rounded, capable set of smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 serves most Android users well.

5) Garmin Quatix 6

The Quatix 6 by Garmin is perfect for those who enjoy spending time in the water. The watch measures your speed, strokes, and efficiency, and can even determine your stroke type. It is also waterproof, with in-depth activity profiles for pool and open water swimming.

If you enjoy boating, the Quatix 6 connects to a range of Garmin products including chart plotting GPS hardware and wind monitors and can control autopilot, display engine RPM information, and mark waypoints on a map. Other features found on the Garmin Fenix 6, including kayaking, golf, cycling, and running, are GPS, a heart rate sensor, a blood oxygen sensor, and all the activity tracking features.

Garmin has improved the interface for their Quatix 6 watch by incorporating additional data, still preserving a simple and intuitive interface, and adding a widget function for conveniently accessing stored data on a 1.3-inch screen with a 260 x 260-pixel resolution. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS and it comes with ample storage space for music as well.

Garmin’s Quatix 6 comes in either a 47mm or 51mm case size, with the option to upgrade to a model with a sapphire crystal over the screen for extra protection against scratches, and a solar-powered option to charge it even while it’s away from the charger. If you use it conservatively, you’ll get 14 days of battery life; however, you can expect the battery life to shorten when you add in the tracking feature.

The Way We Review

Our reviews of smartwatches are similar to our reviews of smartphones. We subject them to tough tests, thoroughly investigate their features, and check their performance. We got the wireless Bluetooth earphones (despite how dorky they looked) and went on walks around town, talking on the phone and working out, testing them with different phones and different operating systems.

Regardless of what others might think, we have all these smartwatches and different watches for different occasions, we install a lot of apps and just keep doing our thing.
