The Latest Smartwatches Of 2018

A smartwatch is one of the best accessories you can buy for your smartphone. Outside of telling you the time, smartwatches can alert you with notifications and even run apps. The top smartwatch models come with plenty of features like allowing you to browse the web by voice alone, or track all of your physical activity. Some even give you the ability to pay for groceries straight from your wrist. A lot of this technology is designed to be intuitive and fashionable. Here are some of the top choices for smartwatches you can find in 2018.

The Apple Watch 3

The Apple Watch 3 is one of the top smartwatches currently on the market. It has an LTE connection, giving the watch high-end connection speeds. Unfortunately, the high-speed connection also means a higher price and less battery time. Apple also offers a non-LTE version of the smartwatch which comes with longer battery life, but slower speeds. It is water resistant, which means it can be out in the rain and even taken swimming, and has onboard GPS for jogging navigation.

The Ticwatch E

This smartwatch is not as well known as Apple’s, but is one of the best Android Wear smartwatches on the market right now. One of the main reasons for its popularity is the price you will pay for functionality. The Ticwatch E has built-in GPS, a heart rate sensor, and a modern design.
This product has the latest fitness features and you can use them while leaving your phone during exercise. However, you can’t make phone calls with this smartwatch. Be sure to do your research before making any smartwatch purchase to find the best product for your needs.

Fitbit Versa

Fitbit smartwatches are quickly becoming more popular, despite only being available since 2017. The Fitbit smartwatch can be set up with your credit or debit card for touchless payments with Fitbit Pay. It can also store over 2 gigs worth of your favorite music. The fitbit Versa battery life is said to last up to three days on a single charge. Despite not having GPS, it is still a good smartwatch choice for the price.

Fitbit Ionic

The Fitbit Ionic is Fitbit’s first smartwatch, released in 2017. The Ionic smartwatch is designed mainly for fitness tracking. It comes with GPS tracking, Fitbit Pay, and is water resistant for swimming or using outdoors in the rain. This smartwatch also comes with heart-rate monitoring technology and boasts a battery life of up to five days without charging. If you are a Fitbit fan, this product is great for upgrading from the standard Fitbit band.

Samsung Gear Sport

The Samsung Gear Sport comes with offline Spotify capabilities, which means you can listen to all of your playlists without carrying your phone. This smartwatch also comes with GPS built-in to help with your running exercises. It is also branded as waterproof up to 50m, so it can be worn while swimming or out in the rain. The Samsung Gear Sport also comes with various fitness tracking features that help with exercises like running, squats, biking, swimming, and even hiking.
