1. Fitbit Versa 2 Health & Fitness Smartwatch – Best Overall
While you may be wondering why we haven’t put the obvious “best smartwatch” (you know, the apple watch) at the top of our list, first let’s talk about the Fitbit Versa 2.
While there have been newer models of the Fitbit Versa come out since the 2, we still believe that this is the best overall smartwatch for women.
Not only doe sit have all the functions and gadgets that you would expect in a smartwatch (we’ll go over those in a minute), but it is really good value for money.
It works well in any women’s lifestyle whether they are a stay at home mum or a high flying businesswoman and they don’t look too overbearing either.
Overall the functionality and the style of this watch really outperforms when it’s put up against some bigger names and we think that it’s the best overall smartwatch for women.
The features of this watch include built in Amazon Alexa to get all of your news and up to date info, heart rate monitor, sleep score monitor, Spotify access, fitness goal trackers (including calories burnt, steps counted etc) AND it connects to your phone so you can read texts or see who is calling.
Finally, it comes in a range of colours that compliment any outfit. From rose gold to urban carbon, you’ll be making a real statement with this watch.
2. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 – Runner Up
While it was a hard choice deciding which of the two watches, the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 or the Fitbit Versa 2, should be the overall winner in this top 10, the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 has made it as a close runner up.
This watch is only compatible with Samsung which is such a shame because it is a really good watch.
Along with all the functionality you require, it is a sleek and pretty watch. In fact, at a glance you wouldn’t be able to tell it was a smartwatch at all.
As with the Fitbit, this watch offers all the functions and features you would expect such as fitness trackers, sleep trackers and phone connectivity.
It connects to Spotify, uses Bixby (which is Samsung’s version of Siri) and is even waterproof. The screen is a high quality display that has a watch screensaver when not in use.
This watch does come at a higher price than the Fitbit which can put some people off, but it is still cheaper than an apple watch and ideal if you have a Samsung Galaxy phone.
3. Garmin vívoactive 4S – Best for Runners
The Garmin Vivoactive is the most sleek and sophisticated smartwatch out there.
If you are worried about having a massive screen hanging off your wrist or people constantly pointing out your smartwatch and asking you “how many miles you’ve run” or “how many calories you’ve burnt” then the vivoactive will be much better suited to you.
This watch barely looks like a smartwatch at all, with a normal watch face for most of the time and a smaller screen.
However, just because it’s small doesn’t mean that it isn’t jam packed with functions.
This little watch not only tracks your fitness, health and connect your phone to it, but it also displays little workouts for you to follow.
For an extra bonus you can even set up Garmin Pay which allows you to make purchases with your watch via contactless payments (this is subject to the right connections and availability of course).
4. Amazfit Bip Smartwatch by Huami – Best for Phone Usage
The Bip is a great smartwatch, not just for the fact that its less than $100 but also because it has such a long battery life!
I don’t know about you, but my charging dock is pretty full already at night-time, I’m not sure I could fit another device in every night.
Thankfully the Bip has a 30 day battery life (although this is lower with more consistent usage) which only takes 2.5 hours to charge up.
The built in GPS means that it can track where you are and what you are doing, specifically as it has 4 sport modes including running, treadmill, cycling and walking
You can connect this watch to your phone, including your iPhone (did we mention it was less than $100?!) AND it comes in 4 different colours!
The best part is that you can get notifications for everything from twitter to emails. This phone has more technology than you would expect for the budget and is a good all-rounder.
5. Stainless Waterproof Smartwatch and Fitness Tracker – Best for Budget
Specially designed for women, this smartwatch not only offers great value for money at under $60 but also has specific functions for women such as period trackers.
Along with the ability to connect the watch to your phone so that you can receive notifications, read text messages and see who’s calling, you can also track your fitness with a calorie tracker and sedentary alert.
All of this comes as a sleek steel look watch that has a battery life of around 15 hours.
Overall this watch has many of the functions that you’d expect to see on a more expensive watch so is very good value for money.
6. Willful Smart Watch – Best for Basics
Sometimes you just want a smartwatch that will connect to your phone and maybe keep count of your steps. Is that too much to ask?
You might not need any of the fancy health trackers, don’t worry about how many calories you’ve burned and definitely have no interest in a friendly reminder from your watch telling you when your period is about to start (like you don’t already know).
Well if you want a basic smartwatch that isn’t going to bamboozle you with too many functions then the Willful Smart Watch is a good option.
Still featuring the essentials such as phone connectivity and a GPS, this watch offers a less fussy and technical set of features than the rest. This watch also has a 10 day battery life which is great for this price range and also connects up to most phones.
7. SmartDaily Smart Watch for Women – Best for Basics
Want a smartwatch but want it to look stylish and elegant? The SmartDaily is a good choice.
Just like the Samsung Galaxy Active (but for a fraction of the price) this watch delivers all the functionality of a standard smart phone but packaged in a really pretty watch.
The Rose Gold link chain effect strap that holds the sleek black watch face onto your wrist will go with any outfit and won’t look like you’ve just come from the gym.
There are different watch faces to choose from as well so you can decide which one you like the look of and use that when your watch isn’t in “active” mode.
As well as looking gorgeous it, of course, has all the functions you could require such as sleep tracker, heart rate monitor, pedometer and calorie counter.
You can connect your device to it to receive notifications and read text messages. Gone are the days of bulky smartwatches, this is one for the ladies.
8. FITVII Health & Fitness Smart Watch – Best for Gym Bunnies
Do you take your fitness seriously? The ongoing trend of female fitness is growing and nowadays you’re more likely to see women lifting weights and running marathons than joining in with an aerobics class.
If this sounds like you then the FITVII is a good watch to help you track your goals and your activity.
Designed to give the likes of Garmin and Fitbit a run for their money, the FITVII is full of features that will help you analyse your activity and compete against it.
It offers a 1.3 inch full color screen which is completely touch sensitive and waterproof.
It records things like your sleep, your heart rate and your fitness levels and compiles them into readable reports so that you can see what is happening in your body day to day.
The battery life is good being between 3 days for full on usage to 7 days on limited usage. You can connect it up to most phones and receive notifications as well.
9. Eleoption Kids Smart Watch – Best for Girls
Looking for a smart watch that’s specifically designed for girls or children? The Eleoption smart watch is a great little gadget.
While it may not have all the fitness and tracker functions that you find in the other smart watches on this list, it still has GPS so you can track where your child is at any given time.
As well as this your child can still use it just as they would a normal cell phone. They can take pictures with the camera, send and receive text messages and even send an SOS emergency call.
There are additional features such as an alarm clock, some maths games and a flashlight which really is all you want if you are giving it to a child.
This smart watch does require a sim card to work and you put this into the back of the screen Overall for the money it is a good smart watch and a great way to introduce your children to the maturity of having a phone but without the worry of accessing the internet as well.
10. GOKOO Smart Watch – Best for All Occasions
If you want a watch that can easily go from a session at the gym to a day in the office and not look out of place in either, then the GOKOO smart watch is a good bet.
This watch comes with interchangeable straps, one silicone (for working out) and one rose gold chain link (for every day or going out).
As well as this it also has every function you could need day or night. For working out: heart rate monitor, blood oxygen monitor, blood pressure gauge, different sport trackers, pedometer and calorie counter.
For general day to day: email notifications, text notifications, call log and is compatible with most phones.
Hopefully you have seen the right smart watch for you on this list and you’re now checking out whether it is compatible with your phone!
Remember that battery longevity is worth it’s weight in gold so where possible up the budget for that, otherwise you’ll be so frustrated at charging it every day. We hope you enjoy your new smart watch and that it gets you moving and helps you to be more connected for the rest of 2021.
