Five of the best smart watches – from Fitbits to Apple

With prices ranging from £120 to £369

Fitbit Versa 3

Fitbit Versa 3

Technically, the Fitbit Versa may be a smartwatch, but in reality it is a fitness tracker that tells the time. In other words, it doesn’t offer as much as some models, but what you do get is a great battery life, a lightweight chassis, and a plethora of fitness statistics.

TicWatch Pro 3

With its Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset with 1GB of RAM, this smartwatch is one of the most powerful devices on this list. Apps load quickly, so you’ll never be left waiting for something to boot up.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

This smartwatch has great apps and a decent battery. However, it doesn’t work with iPhones, and while it is compatible with most Android phones, you’ll need to own a Samsung to access some features, such as blood pressure or ECG measurements.

Apple Watch Series 7

Apple Watch Series 7

Apple’s flagship smartwatch has a great screen and a variety of features, including a heart monitor, sleep tracker, Siri voice assistant and more. Crack- and water-resistant, it is a decent fitness compan­ion, but suffers from a fairly short battery life.

5

Honor MagicWatch 2

The MagicWatch 2 has a range of advanced health features including stress monitoring and pace tracking, but arguably its real selling point is its immense battery life: a full charge should last for up to two weeks.
