2

The best smartwatches have multiple functions, and each new generation surpasses the previous one.

In the market, there are several attractive options with different brands and models of smartwatches. The list contains a watch for every style and age. We have also tried to include a diverse range of operating systems and price categories, besides fitness watches.

To sum up our choices, here are the best Android and iOS smartwatches that you can find in the market:

Apple Watch Series 4

No list is complete without including one of the best smartwatches of 2020. Designed by Apple, Series 4 has a variety of different function that is complemented by a bright and large OLED screen. In fact, the OLED screen is better than the earlier models.

Apple Watch Series 4

A new dual-core S4 processor offers a super smooth performance. The Watch OS 5 software also makes excellent use of the additional space offering in-depth data and detailed output. The larger buttons also facilitate user interaction. Similarly, it comes with a GPS, an electrocardiogram and an activity tracker. The “wrapper” is waterproof, and pre-compiled training plans include yoga and hiking. Overall, these functions are combined to make the Apple Watch a complete, easy-to-use, and among the most advanced fitness tracking watches available in the market.


PROS:

  • Innovative Features
  • Reliable Technology
  • Style

CONS:

  • Battery Life
  • High-Price
  • Design Variations


Compared to the Apple Watch Series 3 version, the updates speaker and the microphone will make it easier to communicate clearly; however, users will need to pay an additional sum to incorporate 4G to receive data.

The only major drawback is the battery life, which is certainly not a hallmark of Apple watches. The charge works for a maximum of 18 hours; however, you can extend the battery life by putting it in a battery-saving model enabling the user to keep the charge for an additional two to three hours. As such, there is an energy-saving mode that turns off everything except time.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is perhaps the most well-known smartwatches that Android phone owners can buy as it can support a number of operating systems. Irrespective of the manufacturer, the Samsung Galaxy is able to sync with the operating system of each brand. This is a watch for users who value an excellent user interface that has a very well finished sturdy-looking frame.

Samsung Galaxy Watch best rated

When using Wear operating system, the watch may not work as smoothly as marketed. Instead of using Google’s Wear operating system, you should use Tizen software of Samsung. The Tizen software is much better than Google Wear enabling users to easily interact with a lot of third-party software including the Gear Sport version.

Instead of pressing and sliding a small touch screen for each interaction, Tizen is based on a rotating bezel that helps you scroll through menus quickly and easily. The bezel rotates without sticking enabling minimum touch-interaction to keep the AMOLED screen in top-notch condition. This is a clear advantage of using Samsung Galaxy over other smartwatches helping minimize mechanical and touch-screen failures.


PROS:

  • Variety of Smart Features
  • Tizen Samsung Operating System
  • Variety of Colors

CONS:

  • Limited compatibility with iOS
  • Learning Curve
  • Limited in-built Storage


The watch itself is the most elegant of Samsung so far because it looks more like a watch than a tech-gadget. It is in stark contrast to Gear G3 and Gear Sport styles. Samsung has also removed the Gear name for the Galaxy Watch allowing for more flexibility in features. For instance, the new version comes with two case sizes and lots of straps and colors. The larger of these is a 46mm screen available in silver color; whereas the 42mm version is available in black or gold.

The change to more traditional looks did not take away useful functions. These functions include a heart rate sensor, integrated GPS, automatic exercise recognition, and a variety of advanced applications that can be downloaded from the Samsung store. The watch supports a separate 4GB storage for music and Spotify playlists. It also utilizes the Bluetooth connectivity so that you’re not dependent on the Internet. New users will definitely require some learning-curve to feel comfortable using a myriad of functions, which also means that it is not as user-friendly and as easy to use as the Apple watch, reviewed earlier. Samsung Gear app can be used with any Samsung phone that has an Android operating system. The watch can also be used with iOS but there may be a lot of features that you may not be able to utilize when integrating with an iOS operating system.

Mobvoi Ticwatch E2

It makes up this list because it is also the best-priced Wear OS smartwatch you will find in the market. Despite its low cost, it packs a punch by offering lots of functions found in the expansive models.

Mobvoi Ticwatch E2 review

It will adapt very well to individuals who love a sturdy framework as well as to those who have a strict budget. If you do not want to spend more than $ 160 dollars, it is recommended to buy the Mobvoi Ticwatch E2. The retail price is around $160, but you may get it at even a cheaper price on certain sales outlets. Despite being cheap, it is very functional and practical to use as a large1.4-inch screen complements Google’s Wear operating system. Just like other smartwatches, it also has a heart rate sensor and a GPS to track your runs. The only special feature missing is NFC for Google Pay.


PROS:

  • Low Cost
  • Google Wear OS
  • Battery Life

CONS:

  • Lack of Support for Third Party Apps
  • Style
  • Standard Screen Display


The battery manages to last at least one day with a full charge. While, it won’t last you two full days, but it won’t stop working either. The long-lasting battery means that users are able to use full functionality before the battery is fully discharged – something, that can’t be said of other smartwatches. It is not the most elegant watch in the world, but it is not ugly either. It can be defined as a functional watch that has a lot of high-tech features. Selecting the watch is practical because it is the most affordable Wear OS out there, and it brings many features found in watches that cost twice as much. The price-value proposition makes it a bargain, which is a rare feature to find today in today’s mobile technology.

If you want a more stylish watch that has similar functions but costs a little higher then go for the Fossil smart watch model, suggested earlier. The different types of models may cost a little more directly from Fossil online store but they compete directly with the Mobvoi Ticwatch E2 models. The possible disadvantage is the lack of support for third-party applications.

Nubia Alpha Smart

The Chinese company, Nubia, has introduced an amazing smartwatch that is similar to wearing a smartphone on your wrist. The innovative gadget is called Nubia Alpha, and it’s like a ride on a technology roller coaster, a kind of hybrid between a smartwatch and a fully functional phone.

Nubia Alpha Smart Watch

It is a smartwatch with smartphone capabilities, which includes everything from making and receiving calls to taking photos with a built-in camera. Instead of a circular screen, it has a flexible 4-inch rectangular OLED screen with a resolution of 960 x 192 pixels. It curves down on the side of the bracelet providing a longer viewing area compared to a traditional smartwatch. The bezel around the screen gives it shape and definition and holds a normal camera and a sensor to recognize gestures.


PROS:

  • Bright Screen
  • Battery Life
  • High-Tech Feature

CONS:

  • New Processor
  • Small Screen Size
  • Large Outer Frame


Users suggest that the bracelet is very comfortable and the size fits easily as it does not pull the hairs on the wrist. Due to the large size and style, it is unlikely to be attractive to a female audience. The screen is attractive, bright and colorful as you would expect from any OLED panel. The panel is able to display the operating system icons and wallpaper very effectively. You can also watch videos, show photos, and do other things similar to smartphones. While you can take pictures with your camera but the viewfinder is the size of a postage stamp and it consists of a low-resolution camera.

The Alpha is exactly what is expected of Nubia. It is rare, strangely convincing, technically innovative, and it does not resemble anything else that is currently available in the market. Overall, it is a roller coaster, with ups and downs.

Overall, higher operating time; protection against water; and constant exposure to elements are very important factors that allowed good sales and future prospects for the watch. The only weak link in this model is its design, which is more suitable for casual clothing.

As with every watch, there are a few drawbacks that can be improved. For instance, Samsung Gear S3 looks too big on wrists, which means that it may look odd on people who have smaller wrists. While there are a lot of great activity trackers, the Tizen operating system often lacks important application that is the hallmark of Android platform. If you’re OK with these minor inconveniences, Samsung Gear S3 is a solid watch that compares with the best in the market.
