10 Best Smartwatches in the World

Smartwatches are convenient wearable devices that don’t just provide time-keeping features, but a host of other features as well, such as:


  • Calling and messaging features including emergency calls
  • GPS tracking
  • Altimeter, compass, maps, and other location features
  • Smartphone application notifications
  • Digital wallet applications and contactless payments
  • Temperature monitoring, blood pressure, and other health informatics.


In recent years, the popularity of smartwatches around the world has exploded, and more and more people are in a rush to get their hands on one. If your situation is similar, you’re at the right place. In this listicle, we’ll take you through the 10 best smartwatches your money can buy in 2022. So, read on.

1. Apple Watch Series 7

If you own an iPhone, there’s no better smartwatch to buy than the Apple Watch Series 7. This latest smartwatch offering from Apple improves on last year’s model and adds some handy features like blood oxygen monitoring and an altimeter that stays on round-the-clock.


The Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch also impresses in terms of its display and charging. Its display is 20% larger compared to the previous edition and it charges up more rapidly as well. The thinner bezels give it a sleek look but it manages to retain its compatibility with older Apple Watch straps.


While the smartwatch is loaded with a vast array of features, it isn’t pocket-friendly. If you’re on the lookout for a cheaper alternative to the Apple Watch Series 7, we recommend considering the Apple Watch SE. Sure, it lacks some of the features of the Apple Watch Series 7 such as blood oxygen monitoring and ECG, but it’s high on affordability.

2. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic might appear to be no different from the Galaxy Watch 3. However, don’t let its appearance deceive you. It’s got a lot of new things going on underneath the surface. For instance, Samsung has finally bid goodbye to its Tizen OS and welcomed the Wear OS.


User experience is top-notch, and some new health informatics features have been added as well. For instance, there’s an irregular heart rhythm detector, along with an ECG and body composition analysis. The Wear OS also makes the smartwatch compatible with numerous third-party apps, which wasn’t the case for older models.


To get the most out of this smartwatch, you should pair it with a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. However, it’s not a cause for concern even if you don’t own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone – as long as you’ve got an Android device, this smartwatch should serve you just fine.

3. Amazfit GTR 3 Pro

The Amazfit GTR 3 Pro is one of the largest smartwatches you can find – perfect for those with large wrists and/or the ones who like big displays. This smartwatch marks a slight improvement over the GTR 3 as its display is significantly sharper along with support for a higher refresh rate, which makes user interaction much smoother.


You’ll get access to several fitness and health features, but the missing NFC is a major downside, especially when you consider its high price. A single reading can give you detailed insights into your stress levels, heart rate, and blood oxygen. In terms of OS, the smartwatch is armed with the brand new Zepp OS. Even though third-party app support isn’t available, it still offers 150 watch faces, including animates ones.


You can also track up to 150 activities with the GTR 3 Pro. The BioSensor is better than before as well, and it works without any problem underwater. There’s Amazon Alexa voice assistance on offer too. Arguably the most impressive highlight of the GTR 3 Pro? Its battery, of course, which can make the device run up to 12 days.

4. Fitbit Sense

Before Fitbit Sense was launched, it was the Ionic that was Fitbit’s most complete smartwatch. However, the Fitbit Sense improves on the Ionic’s strengths and also does away with its minor weaknesses. In terms of health features, no other smartwatch on the planet can compare to the Sense.


Some of the highlights on the health and fitness front include electrodermal activity measurement, skin temperature measurement, blood oxygen reading, and ECG sensor – all of which have been approved by none other than the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


Another plus point of the Fitbit Sense is that it’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Some of the other features worth mentioning include the native app store, onboard GPS, and voice assistance in the form of Alexa. All in all, if health and fitness are your priorities and money is no object for you, by all means, you should consider buying Fitbit Sense.

5. Garmin Venu 2 Plus

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus isn’t just a stylish lifestyle device – it’s also one of the most capable workout companions you can find. While similar in many ways to its little brother, the Garmin Venu 2, the Venu 2 Plus adds some extra features such as voice assistance and on-wrist calls.


All previous smartwatches launched by Garmin were lauded by critics for their GPS accuracy and fitness tracking thoroughness. However, there was one weakness they all shared – they failed to be effective extensions of smartphones. The Venu 2 Plus changes that for good. Additionally, on full charge, the Venu 2 Plus’ battery can last up to 10 days.


However, despite the positives that the Venu 2 has to offer, it’s not as if it doesn’t have any weaknesses. For starters, there’s still no LTE support, and the third-party app store is limited at best. But it’s fair to say that its flaws are minimal, and its enhanced communication features are sure to appeal to a lot of people.

6. Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra

If it’s durability you’re after, look no further than the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 ultra. Its form factor is among the hardiest we’ve seen, and it looks amazing as well, thanks to Mobvoi’s signature dual-display tech. The smartwatch runs on the Wear OS 2 and its battery life is commendable as well, even though it lacks in comparison to premium smartwatches from Amazfit and Polar.

The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra has a 1.4″ AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. It is bright and remains responsive underwater as well. The built-in Google Assistant facilitates instant weather checking and heart rate monitoring.

There are more than 100 exercise modes, which makes it a great option for fitness enthusiasts. 

The app diversity is quite good too, and buyers of this smartwatch can look forward to an OS upgrade later this year.

7. Polar Grit X Pro

The Polar Grit X Pro is the perfect smartwatch for adventure enthusiasts due to its rugged design. With a scratch-resistant sapphire glass watch face and water resistance up to 100 meters, this smartwatch is as durable as a smartwatch can get.

Some other highlights of the Grit X Pro include turn-by-turn navigation, onboard maps, and tools to help you assess your recovery. The recovery tools can be of great help to athletes as they can tell whether someone’s ready for another grueling workout session.

A lot of people like to think of the Grit X Pro as a sports watch. However, the fact is that it packs in numerous standard smartwatch features such as music playback control, phone app notifications, and round-the-clock heart rate monitoring. The only major downside of the Grit X Pro is its less-than-impressive touchscreen, which isn’t always the most responsive.

8. Fitbit Versa 3

The Fitbit Versa 3 may not be as feature-rich as the Sense, but it’s one of the best smartwatches for people who want to track their sleeping patterns. While the Versa 3 retains many of the elements that made the Versa 2 such a success, it adds to its predecessor by incorporating onboard GPS.


Another welcome enhancement is the display, which is larger and curvier compared to the Versa 2. The highlight of the Versa 3 is undoubtedly the Active Zone Minutes feature, which monitors the time spent by users in peak, cardio, or fat burn heart-rate zones during exercise.


Additionally, the Versa 3 offers voice assistance and phone calls. All in all, it’s a cheaper alternative to the flagship Sense without compromising on the signature Fitbit quality.

9. TESCEO Smart Watch H60

The TESCEO H60 is an affordable smartwatch that has a classic appearance, but underneath its simplistic exterior lies a powerful and feature-rich device. Highlights of the H60 include the option to choose from multiple sport modes, deep sleep monitoring, and a built-in temperature sensor.


Some of the health informatics you can access on this smartwatch include blood oxygen level, body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. Switch on the exercise mode, and it’ll monitor and record your fitness data round the clock.


Other noteworthy features of the H60 include Bluetooth calling, one-touch dialing, and app notifications. Last but not least, its 1.69″ display is sizeable, and its build is incredibly sturdy too.


10. TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4

The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 is TAG’s latest smartwatch offering and it’s bound to turn heads due to its classic mechanical watch appearance. Buyers can choose from a 42mm and a 45mm option.


Compared to previous generation TAG smartwatches, the Connected Calibre E4 offers a brighter screen, greater options in terms of sports tracking, and improved battery life.


In terms of aesthetic appeal, only Apple smartwatches come close to matching the Connected Calibre E4. All in all, as far as luxury Android smartwatches are concerned, there’s nothing better right now than this gem from TAG Heuer.
