Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3 Review: Not the style icon it should be

Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3 Review: Not the style icon it should be

Wearing an Armani suit is a big statement, and such things are often worn by someone who wants to look classy and sophisticated. Surely wearing an Emporio Armani smartwatch will return the same effect? Sadly, the latest model -- unimaginatively named the Smartwatch 3 -- just doesn't have the style or performance you're looking for.
Puma Smartwatch

Puma Smartwatch review: Looks sporty, performs poorly

Puma Smartwatch review: Looks sporty, performs poorly

Manufactured by the Fossil Group, the Puma Smartwatch offers a sleek and sporty Wear OS look and plenty of fitness tracking features. It's also a device that doesn't need your phone to track your workouts. But performance is a major issue -- even more so than most Wear OS watches.

Fossil Gen 5 review: Style overcomes the flaws of Wear OS

Fossil Gen 5 review: Style overcomes the flaws of Wear OS

Google’s Wear OS watches have a hard time distinguishing themselves. Some poke their head above the status quo with value, looks, or performance. In the case of the Fossil Gen 5, it’s the looks and smooth performance. I still can’t help but feel that Google is letting companies like Fossil down.
Garmin Instinct

Garmin Instinct review: A budget smartwatch for adventurers

Garmin Instinct review: A budget smartwatch for adventurers

The Garmin Instinct has a price you can't resist and a feature set that begs you to get outside. It's durable, offers fitness and health tracking features, and can help you navigate.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 review: A bite out of Apple

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 rounds out Samsung's watch lineup well, offering Android users the essential functionalities and price of an Apple Watch Sport. Adding ECG, LTE, and some new third-party app integrations, its biggest competitors are its own Galaxy Watch siblings and its predecessor.

Fitbit Versa 2 review: The subscription smartwatch

Fitbit Versa 2 review: The subscription smartwatch

The Fitbit Versa 2 is in a strange place. It delivers multi-day battery life, and priced at $200 it offers almost any feature a Google Wear OS smartwatch might. But it bumps right up against pricing on the Apple Watch Series 3. Where it should set itself apart -- fitness -- it comes up short.

Garmin Fenix 6S Pro Review: Small watch, big deal

Garmin Fenix 6S Pro Review: Small watch, big deal

Garmin didn't disappoint with its new Fenix 6 outdoor watches adding power-saving battery modes, a new pace calculator and even solar charging in select models. We've enjoyed hands-on time with the Fenix 6S Pro, the smallest model in the Fenix series, and discovered that size definitely doesn't matter.
Diesel On Axial

Diesel On Axial review: A bold design for Wear OS

Diesel On Axial review: A bold design for Wear OS

Diesel's Wear OS smartwatch stands out for its rugged, industrial, over-sized design that's sure to turn heads. It's not just unashamedly a Diesel design. It's also a feature-packed bit of tech with the latest Android smartwatch internals, and all the hardware you could ask for in such a device.

The $160 Amazfit Verge is an affordable and surprisingly full-featured GPS watch. It exceeded our expectations on several counts and even rivaled Garmin and Suunto in performance. It's an incredible value.
Michael Kors Lexington 2

Michael Kors Access Lexington 2 review: Elegant form, average software

Michael Kors Access Lexington 2 review: Elegant form, average software

It's quite the looker -- Michael Kors is a designer brand, after all -- and you'll find most of the sensors you could ask for in a smartwatch. Better yet, you have battery modes that can take this watch beyond the average. But Google's Wear OS just can't help but hold it back, even with capable hardware inside.

Huawei Watch GT2 hands-on review: The software holds it back

Huawei's latest smartwatch is the Watch GT2, and it has been treated to an upmarket redesign and a host of new features, which make it more of an all-rounder than its predecessor. However, first impressions of the software are not as good, and there's still work to be done on this aspect. Read our hands-on review.

Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE review

Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE review

Mobvoi has launched a 4G version of its TicWatch Pro, which has seen some slight changes from last year’s model. The LTE connectivity only works on Verizon at the moment, but it opens a world of possibilities with the watch. You won’t find a more feature-packed Wear OS by Google smartwatch than the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE.

Amazfit GTS Review: Apple Watch looks, but not Apple software

Amazfit GTS Review: Apple Watch looks, but not Apple software

It’s easy to dismiss the Amazfit GTS off as a cheap Apple Watch knockoff. It’s undeniably a clone due to the distinctive shape of the body, but to ignore it entirely because of this would be a mistake. However, the software still needs work, as the notifications are not always reliable.

Garmin Forerunner 945 review

Garmin Forerunner 945 review

Garmin's Forerunner 945 takes fitness tracking to a whole new level with a feature list that is beyond compare. We spent some time with the Forerunner 945 to find out if all these features are worth the watch's high price tag.
Samsung Galaxy Fit Hands-on review

Samsung Galaxy Fit review

Samsung Galaxy Fit review

Samsung’s going toe-to-toe against Fitbit’s Inspire HR with its own $99 fitness tracker -- the Galaxy Fit. It also has a heart rate monitor, can automatically detect six workouts, shows you all the notifications from your phone, and has a battery that can last for days -- all in a small package.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active is a strong contender in the wearable world. It has solid battery life, a great notification system, and good fitness-tracking capabilities, all for a price of $200. Did we mention it looks great, too? The competition’s tough, but the Galaxy Watch Active puts up a tougher fight.
