If you’re searching for a new smartwatch and you already own a Google Pixel phone, you might as well grab the Google Pixel Watch. The two obviously make a good pair. The Pixel Watch lets you access your messages and calendar, and even lets you control your other Google smart devices. That means changing the temperature, picking a TV show, or turning on lights just by talking into your wrist. It works with most Android phones, and comes with fitness tracking for 40 different exercises.

Garmin Venu Sq — $187, was $200

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is the premium version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6. While both models share health and fitness tracking capabilities, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic looks more like a traditional watch with its stainless steel case compared to the sporty look of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, and it also keeps the rotating bezel that you’ll use to navigate its interface. Our Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic versus Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 comparison highlights more differences, so feel free to check it out.

Apple Watch Series 9 (GPS + Cellular, 45mm) — $429, was $529
