How should you choose a smartwatch?
Similar to picking a smartphone or tablet, one of the biggest things to consider when buying a smartwatch is which operating system you want to use. After setting your budget, picking out your favored OS is key. We’ve taken a deep dive look at the best smartwatches out there, and have evaluated every smartwatch including the best Garmin watches, and found the Apple Watch Series 6 to be the best overall choice due to its wealth of features — but that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect fit for you.
You need to consider what OS you’re most comfortable with, and most importantly, the OS your phone uses. For instance, the Apple Watch works only with an iPhone. If you have an Android phone, it’s not a viable option, thereby ruling out the latest Apple Watch Series 6, the budget-friendly Apple Watch SE, and the regularly discounted Apple Watch Series 3. Android users will fare better with a Wear OS-based device like the Fossil Gen 5 or a Samsung smartwatch like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3.
Style may also be an important factor for you. How do you plan on using your smartwatch? Do you want to use it during the working day and perhaps for evening events? If so, you want a smartwatch that looks good. Mechanical watch styles are usually attractive but so are subtle Wear OS-based ones. Consider the size of the watch too, especially if you have smaller wrists. A large watch face can crowd your wrist and can be uncomfortable and awkward.
If you want a smartwatch for exercise purposes, have a look at the best fitness trackers. Something from Garmin or Fitbit is a good option as they both focus on exercise tracking and offer relevant features. They’re not as fashionable as some of the other smartwatches, though, and they can be limited for other features unrelated to workouts. Don’t forget that if you plan on swimming with it, waterproofing is essential.
How much should you spend on a smartwatch?
With a topic as broad as smartwatches, it’s hard to judge how much you should spend, as discounts will be different between different brands. The golden rule is not to buy anything you wouldn’t consider buying anyway, and to treat a discount as a bonus rather than a reason to buy. Discounts are coming in between $30 to $200, with more expensive products getting bigger discounts. You’ll also be getting the best deals on older smartwatches, so if you’re happy to not be up-to-the-minute on the latest tech and high-end features, you can score a real bargain.
