Posted by on January 11, 2020 in Technology with 0 Comments

If you’re looking for a great smartwatch to get this 2020, there are numerous options you can check out. Depending on your preferences and the operating system you’re in, the smartwatch you want may not necessarily be the smartwatch that’s apt for you. Or your lifestyle. But let’s face it, shall we? It’s going to boil down to the price.

Smartwatches can fetch quite the price. Not mechanical watches level, but if you want to get the most expensive smartwatch on the planet, you’d be shelling out quite the amount for it. A couple of thousand dollars to be exact. But why would you want to do that when there are perfectly capable options out there in the market today?

We’ve collated the best smartwatches for 2020 – these smartwatches may or may not be the latest versions but trust and believe they’re the best in class right now. So hold on to your hats and maybe open up that savings account cause some of these smartwatches will set you back a pretty penny. But not drain your account, of course.

Apple Watch Series 4

Sure, the Series 5 has been out for quite some time now, and it has a great addition to it: the always-on display. You can’t get that out of the Series 4 but what you’ll be trading off is longer battery life. Yep, you read that right – the always-on display of the Series 5 is causing serious battery drain in Apple’s latest smartwatch, so you’re better off with the previous generation instead.

You get all the features as well – larger screen size, seamless integration, activity tracking, and a bevy of smartwatch apps that’s second to none. The Apple Watch really is one of the best watch brands on the planet today, but it’s also at least a $100 dollar more expensive than your flagship Android smartwatches.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

Among the Android watches in the market right now, the Galaxy Watch may be the one to offer the best bang for your buck. This smartwatch is a marvel, and the engineering and design team at Samsung was clearly hard at work when they’re discussing how this watch should work and how’s it going to look. What we get as consumers is a watch that’s not only classically handsome, it packs all the tools that a smartwatch should have.

At the heart of the watch is Tizen OS, Samsung’s in-house developed OS, which they also use for their famous television sets. As an operating system, it’s good enough and will carry you through the rest of the day. It has its own app store, and the integration with Samsung devices is second to none. Plus, this is a watch you can use at board meetings and such, without looking like a trying hard millennial.

Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch

Right now, the Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch is the best representation of the Google-based Wear OS. It’s a stunning watch for starters. It looks like a classic watch, maybe a bit simplistic. What you get is round bezels, gold, or black depending on your choice plus a silicone or steel-link bracelet that’s reminiscent of classic mechanical watches.

The watch itself is surprisingly lightweight, but it can do so much more that you’ve ever imagined. It can direct you to the dedicated watch app store on Google Play, where you can download dedicated apps for Spotify, Nike Run Club, etc.

It’s swim-proof, which means you can use it on casual pool parties and not to have to worry about it dying on you. Untethered GPS, activity tracking, and the usual smartphone features integration complete the package.

Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro

If you’re looking for a smartwatch that will last you for days without worrying about its battery, the Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro is for you. Its got the best battery life in this list, bar none. It’s a newcomer, that’s why you may not have heard of the brand yet. But what’s the best thing about newcomers in an industry? They usually come in with guns blazing.

And that’s exactly what Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro has done. It’s running Wear OS, and while it’s good-looking in its way, the integration can be better done. The Fossil Gen 5 may be the best Wear OS smartwatch right now, but Ticwatch Pro is just getting started.

There are some clever technologies underneath it, like dual-screen processing, fitness data integration, and phenomenal battery life. The kicker? It’s priced mid-range, so you’re paying for half the price when compared to the Apple- and Samsung-branded smartwatches.

Takeaway

Smartwatches are the future. Mechanical and quartz watches may not be going anytime soon, but the convenience and integration that smartwatches offer are just leaps and bounds better than any wearable right now. So if you’re still stuck in deciding whether to get yourself a nice smartwatch or a mechanical one, don’t overthink and go for the more technologically-advanced option.
