Smartwatches are one of the most practical, feature-packed, and user-friendly examples of wearable technology in today’s time. Tech stores now display a wide variety of top brand smartwatches with great features across brands like Apple, Samsung, Garmin, and Fossil, among others, that deserve to adorn your wrist. Here are the best smartwatches of 2020 that you can gift yourself or a loved one.
- Apple Watch Series 5: The Apple Watch Series 5 tops most lists of best smartwatches, as expected of a product from the brand. It sports the same wonderful design as its predecessor, but is packed with a whole lot of nifty, new features. The watch comes with the choice of 44mm and 40mm case sizes and numerous body variants including ceramic, titanium, stainless steel, and recycled aluminum. Perhaps the biggest new feature is the Always-On Retina display, which means users don’t need to raise their wrists to bring the screen to life. There are a variety of apps, some fashionable watch faces, and an enhanced set of fitness features as well. On the downside, the battery life is a bit low.
- Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2: The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 is undoubtedly one of the best watches for Android™ users. The watch uses Samsung’s Tizen software, which at the moment is giving tough competition to Google’s Wear OS. It comes in two case sizes, 44mm and 40mm, a super AMOLED screen with the touch bezel, and sleek design are just some of the features. The fitness features are one of the major strengths of the Samsung Watch Active2, which include a range of fitness apps, onboard GPS, fitness tracking, auto workout recognition, and heart rate sensor, among others. What’s more, it has 4GB internal storage, can connect to Bluetooth® and even supports Spotify music playlists.
- Fossil Gen 5: The Fossil Gen 5 packs a great set of features into an understated design package. The top brand smartwatch offers an improved performance and a better battery life aside from multiple features. It has 8GB of RAM and users get to choose the style between “Julianna” and “Carlyle”, which come in three variants each, although the watch itself has just one 44mm size. Users also have a choice of colors including Blush Leather, Smoke Stainless Steel, and Rose Gold-Tone Stainless Steel for Julianna, and Dark Brown Leather, Black Silicone, and Smoke Stainless Steel for Carlyle. The AMOLED display is bright and sharp and the watch can be paired with both iPhones® and Android™ phones. What’s more, it also has a heart rate sensor, a small microphone, NFC, a gyroscope, and an altimeter.
