1. Apple Watch Series 4

Series 4 is not only the best Apple Watch so far, but we can consider it without any doubt the best smartwatches on the market. The only problem is that it excludes Android users since it is only compatible with Apple products. It has a bigger and brighter screen and includes features to monitor your health, which makes it ideal for anyone who needs a smartwatch. Some of the advertised features, however, are not yet available. Its operating system, the watchOS 5, is also the best that Apple has developed so far for its wearable devices.  You will easily notice how it is faster and easier to use than previous versions. Now, at the same time that this model was put on sale, the prices of Series 3 fell, which can make the latter something more irresistible. Of course, you will still have at your fingertips a wide variety of straps that will make it unique.

Operating system: watchOS 5
Call function: Yes
Battery life: Up to 18 hours
Water resistance: Yes

2. Huawei Watch 2 from best smartwatches

The Huawei Watch 2 smartwatch is undoubtedly a big step forward compared to the first generation of best smartwatches from the Chinese company, despite the fact that the plastic straps give it a less glamorous touch. In that sense, we are not completely convinced by the sporty look of this watch, although it is true that the abrasion resistant ceramic rotating bezel provides a premium look that the previous model did not have. Although what stands out about this watch is its improved hardware. 4G connectivity, GPS and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks make this a much more practical device since it is not necessary to have it connected to your mobile. What’s more, its integrated sensors offer relevant data of the fitness routine of the wearer, which allow us to know what to improve and how to achieve the objectives. The only serious counter that does not automatically detect when you start a physical activity.

Basic specifications

Operating system: Android Wear 2.0
Call function: Yes
Autonomy of the battery: 2 days approx.
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

3. Apple Watch Series 3 from best smartwatches

The third generation of Apple Watch – with LTE – does not disappoint: it does everything it is meant to do. Their misery remains that society is not yet ready to replace their cell phone with a watch to make calls. In addition, although the integration of this product is undoubtedly the best on the market, that does not make it a mainstream device, especially if one also considers its high price, network restrictions, and its limited practical uses. As an intelligent watch, it is excellent and with a structure of the highest quality. Especially iPhone users will love its compatibility with Apple’s mobile, whose notifications will also reach the smartwatch. In contrast, as an activity monitor, the Apple Watch Series 3 is somewhat weak, especially when compared to other sports devices such as Fitbit, as it includes fewer features for fitness enthusiasts.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Digital
Operating system: watchOS 4
Call function: Yes
Battery life: Up to 18 hours
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

4. Samsung Galaxy best smartwatches

Samsung has designed the first smartwatch of the Galaxy range and has made the Samsung Galaxy Watch become the best smartwatches of the company. That means that it is also the most expensive. The price seems to be justified by the inclusion of GPS, NFC functions and monitoring of the exercise itself that make the experience complete. As for the design, we prefer the 42 mm version. Third-party applications are not the strength of the Tizen operating system, but the truth is that the Galaxy Watch is excellent in basic features. We recommend its use with Samsung phones, although it works with all brands, including the iPhone. It may not have the high technology and sophisticated software of the Apple Watch, but after all for Android users, it is better to use wearable devices that use the Wear OS system, since the watchOS is not compatible.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Hybrid
Operating system: Tizen
Call function: Yes
Battery life: Less than 48 hours
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

5. Withings Steel HR Sport

Some users may feel a bit confused the first time they see the Withings Steel HR Sport : is it an analog clock? Is it a smartwatch ? Is it really a fitness monitor ? Grace is in that: it is a little of each. The dial of the watch is analog, which means that it has the needles of any traditional watch, but it has a small OLED screen that will show you notifications, steps and distance traveled, as well as other information related to your physical exercise. In fact, it offers monitoring of more than 30 different activities: from standard exercise such as running or swimming to other more exclusive activities such as ping pong or dancing. It is, then, the ideal watch for any athlete. It is true, however, that perhaps you like more those who do not dedicate themselves to the sport professionally or who want to use it as a complement at any time. Its design is elegant and discreet and will suit you even with your most elegant clothes.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Hybrid
Operating system: n / a
Call function: Yes
Battery autonomy: Up to 2 and a half days
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: No
Heart rate and GPS monitor: Heart rate monitor

6. Samsung Gear Sport

The Samsung Gear Sport may be a somewhat expensive watch, but there is no doubt that its stunning design and its enviable state-of-the-art technology make it a device to be taken into account. Lightweight and compact, this device is ideal for both fitness and swimming enthusiasts , as it includes GPS, accelerometer and heart rate monitor, and is also water resistant to a maximum of 50 meters deep. Other advantages include a pretty good battery life and the possibility of changing the straps very easily. In fact, the watch comes with an extra silicone strap very useful and comfortable to go to the gym. This smartwatch is also very autonomous: it can be charged wirelessly and integrates wifi, Bluetooth and Samsung Connect, so it will not be necessary to have your smart phone nearby.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Hybrid
Operating system: Tizen 3.0
Call function: Yes
Autonomy of the battery: 3-4 days approx.
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

7. Fitbit Ionic

The price of the Fitbit Ionic is not available to everyone and there are those who would rightly say that it is still expensive for a fitness monitor , despite its high quality and the latest technology that it includes. Be that as it may, the truth is that this smartwatch can attract a wide variety of users, with different hobbies and needs. In this sense, it is designed for the most “hardcore” athletes or for those who visit the gym sporadically. If you are just looking for a healthier lifestyle, you can also benefit from this device and its heart rate monitoring, its integrated GPS, its personalized training on screen and its information on the quality of your sleep. Thus, despite not being the best smartwatch as such-there are others in the market compatible with more applications, it stands out greatly among smart watches for health and personal care.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Digital
Operating system: Fitbit OS
Call function: Yes
Battery autonomy: Up to 5 days
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

8. Huawei Watch

Despite being a device of a previous generation, the Huawei Watch remains one of the best smartwatches available today in the market, thanks to an attractive design and high quality of its manufacture. Two of the big drawbacks of the Huawei Watch are, however, that it does not come with GPS and its heart rate monitor leaves a little to be desired. In addition, it does not include any features that can not be found in other watches. Its large box can be somewhat uncomfortable for small dolls. For now, unlike its rival Apple, the Chinese multinational is not committed to manufacture the watch in different sizes. Yes, no one can blame Huawei have finally used a stainless steel case, as well as a sapphire crystal, which gives an elegant and refined appearance. This choice takes him away from the slightly ostentatious look of his mobile phones.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Hybrid
Operating system: Android Wear 2.0
Call function: Yes
Battery autonomy: 3 days approx.
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate and GPS monitor: Heart rate monitor

9. Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is a breakthrough compared to previous models because for the first time it includes GPS, but its functionality is still limited, so having a smartphone at your fingertips is still necessary. This is especially evident if you do not use a Samsung phone, since you will not be able to see text messages or emails from the watch. In spite of everything, it should be said that the Tizen operating system is still more intuitive than Android Wear. Among its advantages, we highlight the commitment to a much less sporty design with the intention of creating a final product that resembles more a classic watch than a technological device. If you decide for this wearable , you will take home a watch with a high quality color screen, resistant to both water and dust and with a battery that should be recharged every three days or so.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Digital
Operating system: Tizen 2.3.2.
Call function: Yes
Autonomy of the battery: 3-4 days approx.
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate monitor and GPS: Both

10. Asus ZenWatch 2

The second generation of Asus smart watches is a clear improvement over its predecessors, but unfortunately, we miss some features that we find in ZenWatch 3, not yet available in Spain. Anyway, it is a smartwatch more than decent for this price, with a technology of recharging the battery that allows you to charge it at 50 percent in just over half an hour. What stands out most is the control you can make of the screen simply by moving the wrist back and forth, and not touching the screen, something that can be a bit heavy for those who are accustomed to the watches of a lifetime. As for the exterior design, it is obvious that it looks simple but beautiful. Available in two sizes, users can choose from a variety of colors for the straps and case and the watch buckle.

Basic specifications

Digital or hybrid: Hybrid
Operating system: Android Wear
Call function: Yes
Battery autonomy: Up to 57 hours at rest
Water resistance: Yes
Wifi connection: Yes
Heart rate and GPS monitor: Heart rate monitor
