The best smartwatches come with a multitude of pre-installed apps for displaying the calendar and other useful information, but usually, people are attracted to buy smartwatches for the fitness functions they offer.

Now that many smartwatches offer built-in GPS, along with features such as step counting and heart rate monitoring, you’ll find that most of the devices below will accurately track your running or cycling without being connected to your phone.

The best smartwatches you can buy

1. Apple Watch Series 7:

The Apple Watch has consistently topped the list as the best smartwatch I’ve ever tested, and that hasn’t changed with the launch of the 7 Series.

Like previous generations, the improvements here are rather subtle and nothing is revolutionary. You have the same health and fitness functions, including heart rate, blood oxygen, and sleep monitoring. The main changes are a 20% increase in screen size and faster USB-C charging.

The only downside is the familiar one: the short battery life. This is up to 18 hours with the display setting permanently enabled, which is no improvement over previous generations. However, the Apple Watch Series 7 is a fantastic smartwatch and it is the best that an iPhone user can own.

2. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

Samsung’s latest smartwatch introduces some major changes. In addition to a faster processor chip with twice the storage space, the Galaxy Watch 4 replaces the brand’s Tizen operating system with a version of Google’s Wear operating system.

Watch 4 also comes with some new health and fitness features, including continuous monitoring of blood oxygen at night, as well as a new and improved “BioActive” sensor that can measure your BMI, basal metabolic rate, muscle mass skeletal, and more.
