View the latest fitness smart watches. Full list


List of all the smartwatch brands and their newest models 2017:

Garmin (21)
The Garmin Approach X40

Our picture shows the Garmin Approach X40. The slimmest Garmin Approach smartwatch model at only 0.83-inches wide, tracking activities through an array of sensors like its accelerometer, GPS receiver, optical HRM, fitting everything inside a 5-ATM waterproof chassis with a mineral glass display-protection.

Suunto (5)
The Suunto Traverse Alpha

Our picture shows the Suunto Traverse Alpha. The Military-inspired smartwatch from Suunto's Traverse collection, sporting a cross-hatched design on its bezel and buttons, a sapphire glass display cover, a MIL-STD-801G-rated protection, and a 100-hour GPS-on usage time on 1-minute intervals.

Samsung (5)
The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

Our illustration shows the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. A stainless steel-clad Gear smartwatch running on the Tizen operating system, parading MIL-STD-801G durability specs, a higher IP68-rated water resistance than its 2nd generation model's IP67-rating, using a rotating-bezel control similar to its predecessor, and holding a 4-day usage time.

Pebble (4)
The Pebble 2 Plus Heart Rate

Our picture shows the Pebble 2 Plus Heart Rate. Pebble surprises us by inexplicably taking a backward step with its latest smartwatch model, copying the design of its 1st generation model, going back to a monochrome E-paper display from the colored ones used by their Time series, but trying to make it up with a 7-day usage time, a 30-meter water resistance, and an Optical HRM sensor.

LG (3)
The LG Watch Urbane

Our picture shows the LG Watch Urbane. LG's 1.3-inch P-OLED Watch Urbane is the first LTE-enabled smart wearable, also boasting 700mAh worth of battery power.

Huawei (3)
The Huawei 55020539

Our illustration shows the Huawei 55020539. A Huawei smartwatch that tries to lean toward fitness with its built-in HRM, but affords an IP67-rated ingress protection only, lacks a GPS receiver, and runs a 2-day battery, which squarely positions it along the luxury category.

Asus (3)
The Asus Zenwatch 3

Our illustration shows the Asus Zenwatch 3. Asus' 3rd generation model from their Zenwatch lineup, breaking their previous rectangular design for a more classic approach, holding a round 287ppi 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a Corning 2.5D Gorilla Glass cover, oozing premium with its Cold-forged 316L stainless steel chassis, diamond-cut bezel, and a genuine Italian stitched-leather wristband.

Polar (2)
The Polar M400

Our picture shows the Polar M400. Strongly geared towards fitness despite a smartwatch appearance, the Polar M400 yields eight hours of GPS tracking (30 days without GPS) and offers a 1.6 display and 4MB of flash storage

Sony (2)
The Sony SmartWatch 3

Our illustration shows the Sony SmartWatch 3. Sony's first Android Wear-running flagship smartwatch that gears up with a 1.6-inch transflective display, a compass, as well as a GPS sensor that supplements its fitness tracking, and provides up to two days of usage time with its 420mAh battery

Mio (2)
The Mio Alpha 2

Our picture shows the Mio Alpha 2. Mio's second generation Alpha smartwatch, which updates workout progress through its Bluetooth connectivity with a compatible smartphone, features an optical HRM sensor, while a 170mAh battery gives it around 24 hours of activity-tracking usage.

Apple (2)
The Apple Watch 38mm

Our illustration shows the Apple Watch 38mm. Apple's first foray into the smartwatch category with voice and gesture controls, a digital rotary-crown for added functions, and an integrated heart rate monitor all packed into a 10.5-inch thick body weighing only 40-grams.

Motorola (2)
The Motorola 360 Sport

Our picture shows the Motorola 360 Sport. Motorola's sporty smartwatch that monitors air pressure, elevation, as well as heart rate to enhance workouts, then finally bets on a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and IP67-rated protection to keep away moisture, dust, or impacts.

Tomtom (2)
The TomTom Spark Cardio Music

Our picture shows the TomTom Spark Cardio Music. A fitness-centric GPS-equipped smartwatch with a built-in HRM, showcasing music with its 3GB internal storage for MP3 or AAC files, and exhibiting an estimated 3-week battery life as well as a 5-ATM waterproof body with a mineral glass-covered display.

Vector (2)
The Vector Luna

Our picture shows the Vector Luna. Vector's classy-looking smartwatch with a 5-ATM waterproof case, which showcases longevity with its above-average 30-day usage time, handles workout-tracking through a built-in accelerometer, and offers a 2-year warranty coverage.

RAZER (2)
The RAZER Nabu Watch

Our picture shows the RAZER Nabu Watch. RAZER's second smartwatch model keeping an interesting two-battery setup, relying on a coin cell (CR2032) for its timekeeping, a rechargeable lithium-ion unit for notifications, and loading everything inside a sturdy 5-ATM waterproof chassis.

Fitbit (2)
The Fitbit Blaze

Our picture shows the Fitbit Blaze. Fitbit's fitness-directed smartwatch that tracks sleep, pulse rate, activities, receives smartphone notifications, brushes off impacts with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and imparts an estimated 5-day battery life.

Fossil (2)
The Fossil Q Wander

Our illustration shows the Fossil Q Wander. A Fossil smartwatch working on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, surprisingly switching from its first generation's Gorilla Glass lens to a mineral glass variant, offering specs whose main attractions are just a single day on its 360mAh battery, a 1.5-inch display and a 45mm diameter, as well as its IP67-rated protection.

CNPGD (One unit: CNPGD All-In-1)
The CNPGD All-In-1

CNPGD's affordable GSM-capable smartwatch that surprisingly claims a 3-day usage time, holds a micro-SD expansion slot (up to 32GB), but sadly apparently fails to feature any protection from impacts or water like other models do. -- Full specs

Lenovo (One model: Lenovo Vibe Band)
The Lenovo Vibe Band

The Vibe Band's phone proximity reminder, waterproof body, and E Ink display register Lenovo as a smartwatch manufacturer. -- Full specs

Timex (One unit: Timex IRONMAN RUN X50 Plus)
The Timex IRONMAN RUN X50 Plus

Timex enters the smartwatch market with a strangely under-equipped model, which apparently lacks any kind of fitness-tracking sensor, opts for an acrylic display cover (Most smartwatches use mineral glass), weighs around a lightweight 40 grams, and runs on a 3-day lithium-ion battery. -- Full specs

Alcatel (One unit: Alcatel OneTouch Watch)
The Alcatel OneTouch Watch

The first smart wearable from Alcatel features a built-in USB 2.0 charging pin, a splash-proof case, and a remote control feature. -- Full specs

Padgene (One unit: Padgene DZ09)
The Padgene DZ09

Padgene's simple smartwatch boasting full-telephony capabilities, interestingly donning a 2-megapixel camera, a micro-SIM as well as a micro-SD slot (up to 32GB), and powering itself with a 380mAh battery providing up to three hours of talk time. -- Full specs

Luxsure (1 smartwatch: Luxsure DM08)
The Luxsure DM08

a camera-toting smartwatch that cleverly designs a 3-megapixel sensor to appear like a winding crown, handles scratch protection with a Gorilla Glass-protected display, and pushes notifications through its bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. -- Full specs

EFOSHM (One unit: EFOSHM V8)
The EFOSHM V8

A chunky 2.1-inch thick smartwatch, using a barometer and altimeter to enhance its fitness tracking features, notifying users through an audio prompt or via its 1.48-inch TFT touchscreen, as well as a silent vibration for discreet alerts. -- Full specs

Indigi (One model: Indigi S6)
The Indigi S6

A deceptively-simple watch, with a 2-megapixel camera covertly embedded in the wristband, an up-to-64GB MicroSD expansion slot, and full-telephony capabilities, but no water/dust-resistance information. -- Full specs

Scinex (One unit: Scinex SW20)
The Scinex SW20

Scinex's luxurious-looking smartwatch also doubles as smartphone, holds a single side-mounted camera, gains an added 32GB storage space through a microSD expansion slot, and relishes a 2-day battery life in between charges. -- Full specs

Casio (One model: Casio WSD-F10)
The Casio WSD-F10

This Casio Android Wear smartwatch seems to prefer the outdoors over fitness-tracking, since it requires a connected smartphone for GPS, lacks a built-in HRM, but its MIL-STD-801-rated protection and 5-ATM water resistance seem like an acceptable trade-off. -- Full specs

Nixon (One unit: Nixon Mission)
The Nixon Mission

A rugged smartwatch from Nixon revealing a rugged 10-ATM waterproof construction, bearing a 316L surgical-grade stainless steel bezel and Corning Gorilla Glass display-protection, a GPS receiver, and using a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset at its core. -- Full specs
