Our Favorite Smartwatches Do Much More Than Just Tell Time

The number of smart watches on the market is astonishing. I have tested models of heuer labelCitizen, Mont Blancand many other fashion brands, but most of them are simply too expensive for what they offer. Here are some options I like.

Apple Watch Series 8 for $329: If you can find the 2022 Apple Watch Series 8 (8/10, WIRED recommended) for much less than the Series 9 (under $300), you should buy it. It is almost identical to the latest model, especially in health features. Save your money!

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 for $229 and Watch5 Pro for $380: The 2022 Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro (7/10, WIRED recommended) are still excellent, just make sure you pay less than the price of the new Galaxy Watch6 models. They match the accuracy of the Apple Watch on several health and fitness metrics, from SpO2, sleep and heart rate tracking to electrocardiogram measurements (although the latter is exclusive to Samsung phones). He Watch5 Pro It’s larger and has a battery that lasts about two full days, while the Watch5 lasts about a day and a morning. The Pro also adds GPX, meaning you can download hiking routes to the watch. They have sapphire crystals that protect the screen, but the Watch5 Pro’s glass is even more durable and has a stronger titanium case than the aluminum case of the standard Watch5.

Casio G-Shock Move DW-H5600 for $299: Do you want a G-Shock with a heart rate monitor? He DW-H5600The measurements lined up well with the Apple Watch, but if you really want to monitor your health, I think you’re better off purchasing something from our Best Fitness Trackers guide. The buttons are a little hard to press and there aren’t many workouts you can follow (running, walking, gym exercises). You can examine a good amount of data in the app, although I was left wanting more and the battery life lasted about three days with continuous monitoring. It can be recharged via solar power, but you’ll need to use the bulky charging clip every few days. I still enjoyed using it, even if I didn’t find it as useful as our previous picks. You can use it to track different time zones, your movements via GPS during a workout, and even sleep.
