10 Best Smartwatches for Everyone Who Wants to Be Connected and Productive
Smartwatches are great, but they can be expensive. If you’re interested in having an always-on connection to your email, phone, and other apps but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy new smartwatch, check out these 10 best smartwatches for everyone who wants to be connected and productive. You can use them as notification devices, fitness trackers, or just as timepieces. While not all of these watches have smartphone capabilities, they all have something unique to offer the user, no matter what your tastes are or your budget may be.
Apple Watch Series 4
The Apple Watch Series 4 is a shining example of the best that smartwatch technology has to offer. The 1.5-inch screen is one of the largest on any smartwatch, with a resolution of 272×340. It’s also one of the brightest screens, meaning you can easily see what’s happening in sunlight or at night. Plus, it comes with advanced health features like fall detection and an ECG app
Samsung Galaxy Watch
The Samsung Galaxy Watch will allow you to perform many tasks like making calls, listening to music, answering emails, and tracking your fitness. The watch even has a speaker! It can also be used as a fitness tracker if you’re looking for something that is all in one.
The Versa, Fitbit’s latest entry into the smartwatch market, is sleek, functional, and most importantly a device that you’ll actually want to wear on your wrist. With a polished design that retains just enough fitness features from its sister product the Ionic (such as automatic activity tracking), it’s an easy contender for anyone looking for a connected watch that can be both casual or hard-core.
We found ourselves wearing this watch all the time — even when we didn’t know what was going on with our fitness levels. It has a battery life of four days which means that you only need to charge it every couple of days. Another thing we really liked about this Fitbit is the size of its display.
Huawei Watch 2 Sport/Elegant
Priced at $245, the Huawei Watch 2 Sport has a 2-inch display and comes with built-in GPS. You can swim while wearing it, and it’s water-resistant down to 165 feet. There are also preloaded apps from Under Armour that help you track exercise sessions. The Sport is made of lightweight composite materials (a mix of plastic and metal) in a sporty design that still looks good when paired with a suit or business casual attire.
LG Watch Style/Sport
In the last few years, smartwatches have been a really popular option. They are perfect for anyone who wants to be connected and productive on the go without sacrificing comfort or style. I have always admired LG’s designs in all their products. The new Watch Style has a modern face that can transition from day wear to date night with just the turn of your wrist. It comes in four different colors: rose gold, titanium gray, white silver, or black. There is also the Sport version that is water resistant up to 50 meters (164 feet). This model comes in three different color options: titanium gray with lavender straps, bronze brown with olive green straps, or obsidian black with royal blue straps.
Fossil Q Explorist HR
The Fossil Q Explorist HR is one of the best smartwatch available because it provides a sleek look, tons of features, and an average battery life. Not only does it have an elegant band, but it also has an incredible battery life so you can stay connected for longer. One downside to this watch is that the included charger doesn’t work as well as you might hope so you’ll need to charge it more often than if you had charged through a USB port. Overall, though, the Fossil Q Explorist HR is a great choice because of its fitness tracker and SOS function.
Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music
This watch is packed with features. It has a waterproof design, offers on-demand music storage (1 GB of storage), does not require your phone to be connected in order to make/receive calls, can store up to 500 songs offline, and has an incredible battery life of up to 11 days. This is the perfect watch for anyone looking for features in their smartwatch!
Skagen Falster 2
With Skagen Falster 2 you can have all the features of a smartwatch without having to charge it, while still getting the classic watch feel. The strap is stainless steel and is fairly lightweight, perfect for all day wear. This watch allows you to customize your own dials which are quite easy, thanks to the free Skagen app. For those who work in dark or dimly lit environments, this is a watch that can withstand those conditions as well. The Falster 2 also includes software from Google’s Wear OS which offers a seamless pairing experience with iOS devices such as iPhones.
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
The Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 is designed with craftsmanship, modularity, and performance in mind. Its 46mm titanium case has a crown with an onion-shaped winding mechanism. It runs on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z34XX processor that includes an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 600 chipset, which can be upgraded from the less powerful GMA 500 if needed with help from Tag Heuer customer service at the time of purchase. Its steel strap attaches with a 6-inch stainless steel clasp that is guaranteed for life; there are also interchangeable straps available.
If you are looking for a fitness-focused smartwatch that is not as pricey as the latest Apple Watch or Rolex, Misfit Vapor is one of the best options. This innovative watch offers built-in GPS, integrated music storage (via Misfit Music), notifications for social media apps, and phone calls – all within a sleek and lightweight design.
Misfit has made a name for itself over the years with various fitness trackers, but Vapor pushes these smartwatch capabilities even further. While it is one of the most affordable smartwatches you can buy today, you’ll still get plenty of high-quality features that come in handy at work and play. It is also ruggedly designed, so you do not have to worry about damage due to daily use.
