How to choose the right smartwatch

Not sure where to start? No problem, we have a big list of the best smartwatches to review, but also we’ve put together some quick steps for doing your own research right here:

  • Step one, choose a style you want between round watch faces, square watch faces, and more compact designs you’ll find in dedicated fitness trackers, like Fitbit’s Inspire series.
  • Next, consider the size of the watch you want, denoted in millimeters. The bigger the watch, the more space it’s going to take up on your wrist (obviously) but also the heavier it will be. If you’re planning on using the watch while active, like running, swimming, or even hiking, you may not want a heavier option. However, a bigger device also typically means a bigger screen size which is more manageable for thick fingers and may be easier to see with bigger onscreen elements.
  • Review the brands, of which there are many, including Fitbit, Google, Garmin, Apple, Samsung, and beyond. Apple and Garmin are great for more active lifestyles, but you’d also be fine with Samsung or Fitbit. As far as fully-featured smartwatches go Google, Samsung, and, of course, Apple are the crowned royalty there.
  • Look for deals. You don’t always have to pay full price for a smartwatch, and many of the new models are released with iterative updates, meaning they’re almost identical to older models. This is especially true in the case of Apple’s smartwatches, with older devices getting new software improvements through the WatchOS software.
  • Give the watch a try. Many retailers offer generous return or refund policies, giving you the opportunity to try out your new watch for a short period before making the final decision. Just know that although you’ve made a purchase, your decision is not necessarily set in stone.

Finally, another great piece of advice is to potentially consider renewed or refurbished smartwatches, offered through both retailers and manufacturers. In many cases, these devices are in excellent or “like new” condition and have been barely used. It’s a great way to save money and get a fantastic and name-brand smartwatch for less — even when there aren’t huge sales going on.
