The best smartwatches and wearables of CES 2023

Wondering about all the wearables and smartwatches at CES 2023? It’s often difficult to keep up with the announcements, so we’ve gathered all the most interesting new products here — including a new smart ring for women from Movano, a hybrid smartwatch from Fossil, and a simple Moto smartwatch for seniors.

Here are the best wearables and smartwatches we’ve seen at CES 2023!

Citizen has two new Google WearOS smartwatches at CES 2023, the CZ Smart Sport and CZ Smart Casual, which are differentiated by the case size and the design. Both come with a new wellness app called YouQ, which takes research into alertness and fatigue from NASA, then feeds it through some A.I. from the IBM Watson Studio, all to help you understand how your body is performing.

The Sport model has a 44mm case and a bold bezel around the 1.28-inch AMOLED screen. That bezel is also shared by the Casual model, except it’s wrapped up in a 41mm case with a more subtle design. Both smartwatches have a heart rate sensor on the back that also measures blood oxygen levels, a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, and a battery expected to deliver 24 hours of use. Prices start at $350, and both will be out in March.

Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition

The new Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition continues Fossil’s use of an e-ink screen and physical watch hands on its hybrid smartwatches, giving you the best of both worlds. E-ink consumes very little power, so you can expect two weeks of battery life. The physical hands give it a very watch-like look and ensure you can always see the time.

The smartwatch has a 44mm case size, and there are multiple styles to choose from — including a stainless steel finish, a black IP, and a gold finish too. The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition has a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen monitoring, automatic workout detection, and various fitness-tracking features. Fossil has not revealed the price yet.

Movano Evie

Renders of the Movano Evie smart ring.

Movano first showed its smart ring for women at CES 2022, but didn’t provide much detail about it at the time. For CES 2023, Movano has given the ring a name, the Evie, and detailed more about its quest for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. It also confirmed the ring will cost $300 when it comes out in 2023. Through its sensors, the Evie ring will measure your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and skin temperature.

Its hoped that FDA approval will come before the smart ring is released, as it will mean that it meets set standards for accuracy, making Movano’s Evie ring not only desirable, but also unusual in the consumer wearables space. We’ve also seen the design, which is split to make the ring more comfortable to wear all the time, even if your finger swells. Movano anticipates the Evie ring to be released during the first six months of 2023.

iTouch Air 4 and Active Jillian Michaels Edition

Lifestyle wearables brand iTouch has announced a partnership with The Fitness App creator Jillian Michaels, who has also put her name on a special edition of the brand’s newest smartwatch, the Air 4. Exact details about the technical side of the smartwatch are limited, but we do know it has a larger touchscreen than the Air 3, an updated biometric sensor, 20 different workout modes, and a feature that lets you send a glowing heart icon to a friend. The feature is called the LoveTap, obviously.

If you buy the Jillian Micheals Edition of the Air 4, it comes with a 90-day subscription to The Fitness App, something that will also be included with the special edition of the iTouch Active fitness smartwatch. The exact cost of the Jillian Michaels editions hasn’t been confirmed, but will range from $75 to $115 when they are released in the spring.

Moto Watch 100

The Moto Watch 100 isn’t actually made by Motorola — it comes from a company called eBuyNow, which was also responsible for the last major Moto smartwatch release, the Moto 360 in 2020. The Moto Watch 100 is pitched as the most affordable smartwatch with fall detection. It also features a 24-hour emergency alert notification and response app, making it suitable for vulnerable people living alone.

It offers heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, fitness tracking, built-in GPS, a circular LCD screen, a silicone strap, and an aluminum case. The Moto Watch 100 works with iOS and Android, plus the smartwatch has water resistance to 5ATM. It joins the recently rumored Moto Watch 70 in the lineup and costs just $100. The Moto Watch 100 is available to buy now.

Oxa Life

Oxa Life sensors and clothing.

Described as a wearable breathing system, the Oxa Life is a combination product consisting of a custom smart shirt or bra with electrodes and a sensor built into it, ready to measure your breathing, heart rate, and heart rate variability (HRV). It combines the stress-relieving benefits of mindfulness and crucial data about our heart and breathing to reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost recovery.

It’s certainly unusual, and its showing at CES comes after its successful Kickstarter campaign closed at the end of 2022. You can still order the Oxa Life package through the company’s website though, with the shirt and sensor together priced at 400 euros, or around $423.

eSight Go

The eSight Go are wearable smart glasses designed to improve vision for visually impaired people. Digital Trends looked at the eSight smart glasses at CES several years ago, and the new lightweight eSight Go model is designed to be easier to wear in more everyday situations. It uses a combination of cameras, lenses, and high-resolution screens to help those with central vision loss live more independently.

For the eSight Go, the company promises a range of new features and improvements. These include new software that’s easier to navigate, better image stabilization, and a portable and comfortable battery pack that’s worn around the neck, as well as a set of 12-megapixel cameras and OLED screens. The eSight Go is expected to launch in late 2023.

That’s all the CES 2023 wearables we have for you right now, but remember to take a loot at our selection of the quirkiest mobile gadgets at CES 2023 we’ve spotted too.

Is this the best cheap Android tablet of CES 2024?

Lenovo is adding a new Android tablet to its tablet portfolio, and this one is targeted at content consumption and classrooms. Dubbed the "Tab M11" and announced at CES 2024, the midrange tablet features an 11-inch screen with a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels). Notably, Lenovo has put a 90Hz refresh rate screen on its budget tablet, which is a neat addition given its appeal as a reading and scribbling device.

The company is offering the Tab M11 in a trio of configurations, and once again, they play to the core use-case scenario for each buyer. The base variant combines 4GB of RAM with either 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage, which is not too shabby if you are predominantly into streaming videos.

The app for your Garmin wearable is getting a huge overhaul

Garmin is going into 2024 and CES with a "new year, new me" approach, and that is made evident by a huge redesign for its Garmin Connect app. The new interface will deliver a simplified experience, and device wearers will be encouraged to pick out the specific elements they want on their Connect homepage.

Garmin Connect is the bridge between your Garmin smartwatch or fitness tracker and your smartphone. While your wearable can keep you up to date with your latest stats and activities, you want the larger screen of your smartphone to really dive deeper into analysis.

The new Garmin Lily 2 isn’t like other smartwatches

Though most smartwatches are bulky and clearly look like a piece of smart tech strapped on your wrist, Garmin has other ideas with the Lily line. At CES 2024 in Las Vegas, Garmin has just announced the next generation of the Lily with the Lily 2 and Lily 2 Classic smartwatches.

With the Lily 2 and Lily 2 Classic, Garmin has added new health, wellness, and other connected features. Both models of the Lily 2 feature an elegant and refreshed design with new metal watch cases.
