Best smartwatch for 2021


There are so many amazing smartwatches out there that choosing the ideal one for you might be difficult. Some smartwatches may be used as a true second screen for your phone, allowing you to respond to messages and make phone calls while on the road. However, you could want something more fitness-oriented to help you stay on track with your workouts. Then there’s the choice of a round or square watch, Android or iOS compatibility, and, of course, price.

But that is simply the tip of the iceberg. Heart rate monitoring, activity tracking, GPS tracking, and notifications should all be available on most smartwatches. Many of them accept contactless payments and have LTE or cellular connectivity, allowing you to leave your phone at home.

To help you pick which smartwatch is appropriate for you, we’ve compiled a list of the best smartwatches available in 2021 based on function, price, and compatibility. This list is updated on a regular basis with new smartwatch reviews.

Apple Watch Series 7

The best Apple Watch you can get

For a reason, the Apple Watch Series 7 is the company’s flagship wristwatch. It not only has a larger screen than previous Apple Watches, but it’s also more durable due to its dust and crack-resistant build. It comes with a blood oxygen and electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) sensor and comes in two case sizes: 41mm and 45mm. You can also get a cellular or LTE device that allows you to receive calls and respond to messages without having to pull your phone out of your pocket, but it will cost you more.

However, the Apple Watch is only compatible with iPhones, and its battery life is only 18 hours with regular use, which is less than many of its competitors.

Garmin Venu 2

A great fitness companion for Android and iOS

Although the Garmin name has long been associated with fitness tracking, many of the company’s previous watches didn’t appear or feel particularly “smart.” The Venu 2 features a sleek, spherical form and a bright screen that is easy to read in direct sunlight. It’s also compatible with Android and iOS, and it has a variety of fitness features such as thorough workout monitoring, a body battery that tells you whether you should push yourself to go out or take a day off, and women’s health tracking. It can also measure blood oxygen levels, and with moderate use, the battery will last many days.

The downside is that it doesn’t have as many smart features as other watches on this list, including no LTE or cellular connectivity, plus no speaker or mic onboard.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

Setting the standard for Android watches

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is the first smartwatch to use Google’s new Wear platform, which was co-designed by the two companies. It sports a round shape with the option of upgrading to the Classic version with a rotating bezel for a little additional money. Although ECG and heart rate tracking are included, Samsung attempts to set itself apart from rival watches by including a new impedance-based electrical sensor that can provide additional information about your body composition.

However, several critical capabilities, like as ECG, are now only available on Samsung phones, and the battery life is not as good as on other phones on the list.

Apple Watch SE

The best Apple Watch for your money

This is the Apple Watch to get if you’ve never had one before. The Apple Watch SE is a less expensive version of the Series 7 that has many of the same amazing features as the Series 7 but with a little longer battery life. Apart from the additional health sensors (ECG and SpO2), the SE lacks an always-on display watch face. However, if you’ve never used this feature before, you’re unlikely to miss it.

Fitbit Versa 3

The best Apple Watch alternative

The Versa 3 works with both iOS and Android devices, and you can pick between Alexa and Google Assistant as your voice assistant. It doesn’t have as many applications or smart features as some of its competitors, but it’s a well-rounded wristwatch with lots of health and fitness features, like as inbuilt GPS and live heart rate zone notifications, to keep you on track. It has the greatest sleep tracker on the list, and it also breaks down your SpO2 and body temperature data overnight (Fitbit Premium users). The battery life is also better than most other smartwatches: with the screen always on, I got around four full days (and nights) of use.
