The Best Smartwatches of 2021 Ranked
By BRITTANY ROSTON
1. Apple Watch Series 7
The Apple Watch continues to dominate the smartwatch market and for good reason. Not only does the Series 7 sport a larger display, greater durability, and higher resolution, but its most recent operating system, watchOS 8, brings a slew of features to the tiny device, like the ECG capability for heart health monitoring.
2. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
Samsung’s latest flagship smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4 combines a high-quality build with advanced Wear OS features. Like Apple, Samsung has stuffed a ton of features in its latest Galaxy smartwatch, including sleep tracking with snoring detection and real-time ECG measurements with the company's BioActive Sensor.
3. Fossil Gen 6
For stylish design and fast-charging support, it’s hard to beat the Gen 6. It offers a large selection of customizable bands and dials, ranging from minimalist and modern to sporty and classic, as well as around 24 hours of runtime on a full charge and a built-in built-in microphone and loudspeaker for taking calls and using voice assistants.
4. Huawei Watch GT 3
Masquerading as an ordinary, albeit attractive, timepiece, the Huawei Watch GT 3 packs a number of high-end smart features, for instance, an AI running coach to improve the user’s performance and make training recommendations. Plus, the GT 3 can stream music to Bluetooth headphones, eliminating the need to carry a phone while active.
5. Garmin Venu 2
The Venu 2 is a great option for consumers who are very active and want a smartwatch primarily for health and fitness reasons. Notable features include a pulse oxygen sensor, heart rate monitoring, respiration tracking, and a "health snapshot" that provides details based on a quick activity session.
