Not only is it a great alternative to something like the Apple Watch SE, but the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 stands alone as a well-priced yet premium fitness tracker.

It’s able to do each of these automatically and with advanced detail.

The Apple Watch Ultra is a more recent addition to the Apple Watch lineup, and while there’s a newer Apple Watch Ultra 2 available, we think the original Apple Watch Ultra is still a big, exciting, overwhelming success.

It does everything the Series 8 can do, and it comes with LTE cellular capability standard.
