The best smartwatches can perform lots of tricks, like searching the internet with your voice, tracking your location with GPS or even monitoring your heart rate to protect your overall health. Look below for amazing deals on smartwatches from your favorite makers!
Samsung Galaxy Watch
Our best smartwatch you can buy right now is from Samsung, and instead of opting for the expected Gear S4 name it’s called the Galaxy Watch. Following on from the Gear S3 series and the Gear Sport in 2017, the latest Samsung Watch is much improved. We’ve tested out the larger 46mm version of the watch and it comes with a phenomenal four day battery life even when you’re using it extensively. That’s impressive considering a lot of other watches on this list last a day or so from a single charge. The rotating bezel remains a highlight of navigating around the Tizen OS on the watch, and the interface is one of the easiest to pick up that we’ve seen on a smartwatch.
Apple Watch 5
Apple hasn’t taken the top spot in our best smartwatch list, but this is the best device you can get if you own an iPhone. It works seamlessly with Apple’s phones, and it’s well worth considering if you plan to stick with the iPhone range for at least a few years. There aren’t many huge upgrades over the Apple Watch 4, but the main change is it comes with an always-on display for the first time. That means you won’t have to raise the watch to see your key stats, and instead it’ll display most of the information you need on a dimmed screen. The design is similar to the Apple Watch 4 – a look that we loved – so you’ll get a larger display than earlier iterations of the device, and it comes in either 40mm or 44mm sizes. All of the fitness features you’d expect come on this watch, and that includes a variety of top-end features such as the ECG monitor, GPS tracking, impressive heart rate monitoring and more. If you’re looking for the very best Apple Watch, this is it… it’s just not our favorite smartwatch money can buy.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
Samsung shrank the best parts of the the Galaxy Watch into this sportier smartwatch that’s slimmer, lighter and, arguably, more comfortable – then released a second version months after the first that included a few coveted features, including a rotating digital bezel and LTE version. Overall, not much has changed – which isn’t a bad thing, as it’s still a quality smartwatch at a decent price. Galaxy Watch Active 2 features a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 display that is bright and beautiful yet small enough to be strapped around your wrist than a lot of the other devices in this list. It still comes sporting all of the top-end fitness features you’d expect from Samsung’s Tizen watch range, with 39 workout modes, a heart rate and ECG sensor, and health app with stress and sleep monitoring. There’s even a way to monitor your blood pressure, but that won’t be activated for some time.
Fossil has developed a lot of expertise in the wearable tech space over the last few years, and this has all culminated in the best smartwatch the company has made so far. The Fossil Sport is a top-end watch with a lower price tag than the two devices above in this list. It features GPS, a lightweight – yet premium – design and at least two days of battery life from a single charge. Fossil has packed a Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset inside, which is the latest update from Qualcomm that offers a smoother experience than you’ll get on a lot of older Wear OS watches.
