When they first hit the market a few years ago, smart watches were seen as a bit of a passing fad. Did we really need such devices at all? Flash forward to today, and it’s clear that they’re more than just a novelty – they’re actually a great way to stay organized, lead healthier lives and everything in between.
With so many models on the market, it can be difficult to know where to even begin. But don’t worry, we’ve taken care of that for you. Here are our top four smart watch picks that you should definitely consider before you buy one of your own.
It’s hard to find anything this particular smart watch can’t do. The built-in Alexa feature is certainly a huge feature. This Fitbit also provides daily sleep scores, monitors your heart rate around the clock and even stores 300-plus songs so that you’ll never run out of music options during your gym visits. Plus, it just looks good!
Samsung’s Galaxy Smart Watch can run for days on a single charge thanks to a wireless charger. And the watch faces are so realistic, nobody will figure out it’s a smart watch. Track your sleeping, calorie intake and more. Plus, this phone pairs with both Android and iOS smart phones.
One of the many reasons why we love the L8star fitness monitor is because it is by far one of the most cost-effective ways to enter the world of smart watches. No, you’re not going to get all of the features of a more expensive model. But when you consider that you not only get a built-in heart rate and sleep monitor but also six different sport modes, it’s easy to see why this particular item is so popular.
The Vivoactive 3 smart watch not only includes all of the functionality that you would expect from a device in this category, but it also looks incredible at the exact same time. You can extend that further by personalizing your watch with literally thousands of free watch faces. It comes with more than 15 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps (so those specifically for running, swimming and other activities) but you can also use it to keep a better eye on how you handle stress too.
