1. Samsung Galaxy Watch

Samsung Galaxy SmartwatchSamsung Galaxy Watch is arguably the best Samsung smart pocket watch today.

First off, there is an enormous battery life of up to 4 days and its attractive user interface.

Another feature we like about this watch is its design which gives it a casual yet fashionable look.

Samsung’s Tizen OS adorns this smartwatch while being compatible with both Android and iOS devices. It has a Dual 1.15GHz processor and onboard storage of up to 4GB.

 Samsung Galaxy pocket watch charges wirelessly and allows for Bluetooth, WiFi, and LTE connectivities.

 Furthermore, the smartwatch comes in two sizes; 46mm size and 42mm size. For the 46mm size, its battery lasts up to 4 days while the 42mm size battery lasts about three days.

Also, the 46mm size comes with 1.3″ super AMOLED screen while its smaller counterparts have a 1.2″ super AMOLED screen.

 The innovative design of a bezel that rotates to fit different screen menus expands the functionality of the Wristwatch.

The smartwatch is also great for fitness purposes as it automatically recognizes and tracks some exercises.

This way, the user doesn’t always have to activate these exercise trackers before starting.

 The total number of exercises that it tracks is a mind-blowing figure of 39. With exercises like cycling, sit-ups, shoulder presses, step machine, and yoga, all making a list.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • An innovative rotating bezel makes it easier to use
  • Long-lasting battery life
  • Attractive user interface

Cons

  • Tizen OS needs to be improved, honestly

2. Apple Watch Series 5

Apple Watch Series 5 The Always-on display of this smartwatch is new to Apple Smartwatches, making it stand out among its predecessors.

Series 5 also has outstanding fitness functionalities that make it an appreciated option among smartwatches.

These functionalities include GPS tracking, ECG monitoring, heart rate monitoring and more.

 Apple’s smartwatch OS, Watch OS, adorns this smartwatch with compatibility with only iOS devices.

It has an Apple S5 processor and onboard storage of up to 32GB. Apple Watch Series 5 charges wirelessly and allows for Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, and LTE connectivities. Furthermore, the smartwatch comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes.

3. Samsung Gear S3 Smart Pocket Watch

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch Here is another Samsung product that is worth mentioning on this list.

This smartwatch is excellent for many things, one of which is its compatibility with both Android and iOS devices.

 However, if you are going to be using it with non-Samsung smartphones, you would need to install several Samsung apps on the smartphone.

Otherwise, you should have no problems connecting the smartwatch with whatever smartphone you use.

Samsung Gear S3 also features the innovative rotating bezel design of the Galaxy Watch.

It has a 4GB onboard storage and a 1.3″ super AMOLED screen with 360 by 360 screen resolution. It is a Bluetooth smart pocket watch, and it also allows WiFi connectivity.

Samsung’s Tizen OS is an excellent smartwatch OS in isolation. However, when you compare it with the WearOS of Google and Apple’s WatchOS, Tizen OS has a long way to go.

Due to this OS type, apps that are available on other smartwatches with the mentioned alternative OS are absent on Tizen OS.

This is a massive blow for Samsung Gear S3 Smart Pocket Watch.

However, this smartwatch makes up for its shortcomings when it comes to its fitness functionalities.

The smartwatch tracks your workout progress almost accurately and automatically.
