1. Samsung Galaxy Watch – * Editors Pick *

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is made with a lot of attention to detail.

It incorporates a lot of technology but still closely resembles the style of an analog watch.

It even has a ticking sound that makes it feel like a normal analog watch.


  • It has a rotating bezel.
  • The watch offers 4 GB of internal storage space.
  • It runs on Tizen OS which is a Linux-based operating system.


  • Its battery life is impressive with up to 4 days on normal usage.
  • Its always-on display feature can be turned off to extend battery life.
  • It comes with a 1.2-inch display and it has the following dimensions: 41.9 mm x 45.7 mm x 12.7 mm.
  • Its display is very color-rich when compared to most smartwatch screens in the industry.
  • Its rubber strap fits comfortably around your wrist.


  • It has a bulky appearance on the wrist.
  • It is not suitable for professional athletes although it is more than enough for casual fitness tracking.

Final Verdict

I recommend the Samsung Galaxy Watch to anyone that’s looking for a smartwatch that has a simple analog look and high-tech features.

Especially for people with thick fingers, it is very easy to navigate the Samsung Galaxy Watch because of its large screen.

Its stylish modern finish is also a big plus for anyone that is fashion conscious.

The Samsung Galaxy is without a doubt a fashion statement.

2. Ticwatch E2

The Ticwatch E2 is made by Mobvoi, a Chinese company, and it’s competing at the top of the smartwatch industry.


  • It comes with a 400 x 400-pixel resolution screen which has a pixel density of 404 PPI.
  • It comes loaded with an array of fitness-related apps.
  • Its color-rich display makes it visually appealing.


  • It is very lightweight.
  • It comes with a silicone strap that fits comfortably around your wrist.
  • It has an affordable price tag.
  • It can be charged fast (in about 1 hour).


  • You won’t be able to make contactless payments with this smartwatch.

Final Verdict

Although its battery life is not that bad and can easily last a day, it could be improved to suit the demands of most outdoor enthusiasts.

I highly recommend the Ticwatch E2 for anyone looking at performance and tracking features of high-end smartwatches at an affordable price with reasonable battery life. 

3. Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier can be hard to differentiate when compared to the Samsung Gear S3 Classic.

The Frontier has a black frame with a rubber strap while the classic has a silver frame with a leather strap.

It was developed by Samsung Electronics and released on 18 November 2016.


  • It has a rotating bezel.

  • It’s made from durable materials.


  • Its always-on display feature drains the battery quite fast.
  • Its metal frame is prone to scratches.
  • It can feel a bit heavy on your wrist.

Final Verdict

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is a great option that you should consider especially if you prefer an untethered connection between your smartwatch and your phone.

This is a great smartwatch for business people and traders that need to stay updated about the market around the clock.

4. Apple Watch Series 5

The Apple Watch Series 5 was released on September 10, during Apple’s fall event of 2019.

This smartwatch will only work well when its synced with an iOS smartphone.


  • It’s made from premium materials.
  • It comes with 32GB of internal storage space.
  • It comes with an always-on display feature.


  • Its amount of internal storage capacity is quite large.
  • It comes with impressive fitness-related features.
  • Its available in different premium finishes like ceramic and titanium.


  • Its always-on display can be too bright in the dark.
  • Its battery life is not that impressive.
  • It does not feature anything out of the ordinary compared to its predecessor the Apple Watch Series 4.

Final Verdict

Although the Apple Watch Series 5 is a great watch with high-tech features, when compared to the Apple Watch Series 4 it does not have any features that truly set it apart besides its higher price tag.

If you don’t mind the price then it’s a great purchase but if you want a smartwatch with almost the same features at a cheaper price then you should consider the Apple Watch Series 4.

5. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is developed by Samsung Electronics as an upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active.

It is loaded with new and improved features in particular fitness-related features that were not featured in the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active.


  • It has an always-on display feature.
  • The watch runs on Tizen OS.
  • Its screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
  • It comes with 4 GB of built-in internal storage and 1.5 GB of RAM.
  • It has a non-removable Li-Ion 340 mAh battery.

  • The watch can be charged wirelessly.
  • It is water-resistant.
  • It supports making contactless payments via Samsung Pay.


  • Its stainless steel frame is prone to scratches.
  • It does not have major upgrades when compared to its predecessor.

Final Verdict

Although the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 has a large circular display it does not appear bulky on the wrist which makes it great for any minimalist that loves a sophisticated look.

However, it is not much different when compared to its predecessor and that’s why going for its cheaper predecessor could be an awesome choice too.
