So with Apple announcing its Series five Apple watch, all eyes are on smartwatches all over again. So if you’re not part of the Apple ecosystem and don’t plan on buying the Apple watch, here are our top five alternate SmartWatches to take a look at.
1. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active
The best overall, in our opinion, would be the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. This would probably be the best sports SmartWatch option for all you Fitness activists out there. The Galaxy Watch Active offers two days of battery life and is half the price of the Apple watch series 5.
The watch is stylish which makes a really good option for both work and for the gym. It also has a heart rate sensor and a GPS built in operating on Tizen OS. The wash runs really smoothly and has a really decent battery life. This makes the Galaxy Watch Active one of the most well-rounded wearables experience for Android users right now.
2. Skagen Falster
If you’re looking for the most stylish SmartWatch, we would recommend the Skagen Falster. Everyone wants a simple SmartWatch that screams style. Just plain simple, great quality strap and finish that doesn’t scream “Hey, I’m a SmartWatch”.
The Skagen Falster is a very simple SmartWatch that offers a three button layout which includes a rotating crown that helps you scroll through Wear OS without having to touch the screen. The watch is also packed with important features you’d expect such as water resistance, GPS, NFC heart rate monitor and many more. You’ll also get a beautiful stainless steel body finish and well constructed straps in either metal leather or silicon and in various colors.
3. Mobvoi Ticwatch E2
If you’re looking at a SmartWatch that would offer you the best value, that would definitely be the Mobvoi Ticwatch E2. It’s got a big 1.4inch display that can be seen clearly and visibly at all times.
It also has a great touch response, amazing battery life, it’s waterproof and has a heart rate monitor and automatic workout detection. It has a decent battery life of up to a day this. It runs on Google’s Wear OS and is great for a lot of things including notification support and the Google assistant. The reason for it being the most value for money is that it focuses more on utility rather than aesthetics.
4. Fossil Hybrid SmartWatch
If you’re looking for a SmartWatch that’s suited for fashion, the Fossil Hybrid SmartWatch would be the way to go.
This hybrid SmartWatch is not like the other ones who are spoken about so far because it is mostly analog with a little bit of smart connectivity. The battery life can last up to six months but this also varies depending on usage. When a notification or an alert arrives, a gentle buzz lets you know right away via Bluetooth connectivity. This watch also has a renewable battery that lasts up to a year without having to renew or charge your watch.
5. Fitbit Versa 2
Last but not the least, if you’re looking for a SmartWatch for casual athletes, the Fitbit Versa 2 would be the way to go.
The Versa 2 is a fantastic and colorful product that combines the best of the company’s athletic DNA with solid SmartWatch features a bevy of useful apps and nearly a week of battery life. Built with a new sleek design, a faster processor, performance in this watch is amazing. You can also interact seamlessly with your Android phone. It syncs you after-exercise results in the background to keep you on track and connected. Even with its lack of GPS built in, it still has Alexa support built-in for whenever you need the weather or you want to know who won the game last night.
The bottom line is it really depends on what you’re looking for in a SmartWatch. Every SmartWatch has its own pros and cons, that’s why it’s very difficult for us to tell you which one is the best but it’s up to you to choose which feature you’re looking for.
