Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Amazfit Bip Smartwatch by Huami

Whether you spend your mornings going for a jog or getting into the office early, the Amazfit Bip Smartwatch is intended to match the needs of your lifestyle. Available in a variety of colors, this smartwatch tracks your steps, the quality of your sleep, and how far you’ve traveled each day, along with granting you instant access to incoming emails, texts, phone calls, and social media alerts. Lasting 30 days on a single charge, it is lightweight, unobtrusive, water-resistant and dustproof, letting you incorporate it easily into your routine. The watch also features four different sports modes — for running, using the treadmill, cycling, and walking — so you can more easily track your progress to set — and meet — your goals. Use it to stay organized, whether that’s checking the weather or setting alarms and timers. However, be aware that you’ll still need to keep your smartphone on hand: you won’t be able to reply to texts or emails using the watch, and it is not able to answer calls.

Best Budget: Alltrum Smart Watch

Try out the smartwatch trend even if you’re watching your spending with this Alltrum Smart Watch. This fun and budget-friendly smartwatch comes in black, blue or green and is compatible with most Android smartphones. Use your Alltrum watch to view notifications, monitor your sleep, play music, set alarms and reminders, as well as make hands-free calls. You can even set personalized reminders to help you remember to drink more water or to get up and move around if you’ve been sitting for too long. The flexible band is adjustable, so you can achieve a comfortable fit. You’ll love the full-color 1.56-inch touchscreen, too.

Best Sport: Misfit Vapor 2

Though a bit on the pricier side, the Misfit Vapor 2 is geared towards all athletes, from the casual runner to the marathon trainer. The exercise-specific sport straps, available in a variety of colors, may resemble leather but are both sweatproof and waterproof, and swimmers can use the smartwatch in water as deep as 50 meters. The watch plays music without needing a phone, includes a heart rate sensor, and boasts a standalone GPS that allows you to track the progress of your workout, monitoring everything from elevation to distance to speed. Built-in Google Pay lets you make purchases with just a tap of your wrist, and you can check your smartphone notifications while on the go. The battery life can last up to 24 hours, and it can charge up to 80% in less than an hour. With interchangeable bands and customizable watch faces, it will look the part at the gym or at happy hour. 

Best Water-Resistant: GV68 Smartwatch

The GV68 is an excellent Android smartwatch to use as a fitness tracker. It comes with a built-in heart rate monitor and a G-sensor, so you can track your steps, distance and estimated calories burned. This sporty smartwatch is water-resistant to three meters, so you don’t have to worry about wearing it when boating, hiking, or just hanging out by the pool. It even has a sleep quality analyzer that helps make sure you are getting the rest your body needs to perform its best. It also includes a remote camera function, alarm, calculator, calendar, and stopwatch – everything you need to train your hardest. This watch comes in gold, green, and red.

Most Professional: Bit Smart Watch

Be professional and prepared with the Bit S1 Plus Smart Watch. With polished silver and tan calfskin, the classically elegant design of this watch coordinates well with office wear while still providing all of the functional applications you expect from a modern smartwatch. Send and receive phone calls, texts and e-mails discreetly during meetings or presentations directly from your watch. You can also use the Bit Smart Watch to load and store over 1,000 songs in the Bit Music Vault. Download the free Bit Watch app from the Google Play Store to sync reminders, calendar appointments and download fitness tracker data.

Best Minimalist Style: LG Watch Style

Evoking classic watches, the affordable LG Watch Style is elegant, slim, and lightweight, featuring a stainless steel chassis and circular display. Bands are easy to swap out when you want to refresh your look and watch faces come in titanium, rose gold, and silver. The 1.2-inch P-OLED 360 x 360 resolution display includes an ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness of your screen depending on where you are. Built-in, voice-activated Google Assistant means all the watch's controls — and the answers to your questions — are always on hand. Though the watch doesn’t have a GPS or heart rate monitor, it can still be used as a workout companion. The frame is dust- and water-resistant, and users can take advantage of the movement tracker or other fitness apps to help them meet their exercise goals or track their progress. However, to make sure buyers could get a stylish watch without a higher price point, certain features are lost, notably Google Pay and a long battery life.  

Best Luxury: Skagen Falster 2

Beautiful and sleek, the Skagen Falster 2 combines aesthetics with performance, offering a bright, interactive smartwatch that can assist you throughout your day. Bringing Google Assistant to your wrist, the watch makes payments easy with Google Pay and relays your smartphone notifications.

Set goals and alarms, store your music, or hit the gym after work thanks to the swim-proof touchscreen and a variety of sports modes, including walking, cycling, and stair climbing. For additional functionality, third-party apps can be downloaded from the Google Play store. Customizable watch faces and interchangeable bands, including mesh and leather options, mean the watch can match your style, or change with it.
