Smartwatches have stepped up their game to a unique approach as compared to what they were a few years ago.
Earlier the smartwatch companies used to emphasize only on notifying the users on their smartphones but now they have extended their purposes which increase the utility of your smartwatches with features such as fitness data, media controls, checking messages, and notifying about calls.
Though smartwatches haven’t seen improvement at the pace of that smartphones have seen.
We can still see improvements in smartwatches ranging from design, battery, software, and features.
Let’s look at the best smartwatches available in the market right now.

It has a bigger and better display with the choice of 40mm or 44mm dial size. The speaker is louder than the older versions, the build is lightweight while feeling premium and you can also use your older straps of older apple watches with the new watch.

This watch can’t be called a smartwatch in the traditional sense. As it runs on a custom operating system and there is no way to third-party apps. You won’t be able to reply to the notifications.
Though it has good features for people who love to workout with a provision to track fourteen different kinds of activities. You can find dedicated apps to take Sp02 and heart rate reading as well as track your sleeping data.
The major add on is the app to control music playback on your phone, and another feature that could be useful for people is that it can work as a remote shutter button for the phone’s camera.
