Amazfit Neo

This is definitely an inexpensive smartwatch and at the same time it is a somewhat atypical smartwatch. It looks like a vintage Casio and offers quite spartan functionality. However, it can count steps, monitor sleep, heart rate and other values ​​as well. Don't underestimate it. It is a perfect gift for anyone who is a victim of vintage charm.

Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite

Even Xiaomi finally has its own smartwatch on the market in its name. It is a simple but very functional Mi Watch Lite. Don't expect extraordinary features, but it does its own thing and also integrates GPS for positioning. And then it costs little, while guaranteeing the completeness and reliability of a product made by Xiaomi.

Amazfit Verge Lite

If aesthetically it looks a lot Amazfit Verge, in reality a lot has changed inside. Verge Lite is extremely simplified in its software, becoming more like what Amazfit Bip is. However, it remains an excellent color screen and now the battery, thanks to the lighter software and Bluetooth 5.0 lasts practically double. An extraordinary result.

Amazfit GTS 2 Mini

Not much changes between this GTS 2 Mini and many other Amazfit products, if we look at it from a software point of view. What changes is the size. In fact, GTS 2 Mini, while not really “mini”, is undoubtedly one of the most compact smartwatches around. Elegant and simple, for any wrist.

Huawei Watch Fit

Watch Fit does not offer different functionalities or applications compared to another smartwatch of the company but it is still interesting in its own way, not only for the very low price, but also because it is in an extremely particular format, a cross between a smartwatch and a smartband.

Amazfit T-Rex

This watch has a very rugged design, or as you would say for watches, very outdoor . It is a sportwatch similar in terms of functionality to the other Amazfit in this selection, but in addition it offers resistance to the outside world thanks to 12 military certifications. The display is beautiful and clearly visible and the presence of GPS for positioning is excellent. This Amazfit also enjoys excellent autonomy.

Huawei Watch GT 2e

The second version of Huawei smartwatch is a really interesting product. Unfortunately, it does not improve the management of notifications, but now it allows you to make calls on your wrist, as well as to be used more comfortably thanks to a new, more modern design. The software is also very complete and offers good accuracy for sports.

Xiaomi Mi Watch

It does not differ particularly from the Lite variant, but it has a more classic design, with a circular case, and software that is a little more fluid and pleasant to use. The autonomy is good and the software is also good, as it is very rich in functions and with a good detection of the fitness part. The only limitation remains that of the management of notifications, but otherwise it is absolutely a cheap watch that you should consider.

Amazfit GTR 2e

The big advantage of GTR 2e is that it costs less than its non essential variant. The features are almost identical, even if the speaker is missing and therefore it will not be possible to use it fully when the Alexa voice assistant arrives or to answer calls on the wrist. Very complete and very elegant, Amazfit GTR 2e is the perfect companion for everyone, also thanks to the many functions it is equipped with.

Amazfit GTR 2

Amazfit GTR 2 is undoubtedly a beautiful evolution of the previous model, especially as regards aesthetics. In fact, there is no doubt that this watch is first and foremost an advancement in this sense. As hardware and functions it remains overall quite similar to other Amazfit products.

Amazfit Stratos 3

The third version of Stratos, the Huami sportwatch with smart functions, not actually added a lot compared to the previous model. The big news is the presence of a double version of the operating system that allows you to save a lot of autonomy, reaching up to 14 days, with a complete and functional software, which also guarantees the receipt of notifications.

Fitbit Versa 2

Fitbit Versa 2 also doesn't have GPS and that's the only real thing to keep in mind. For the rest, this new model improves considerably compared to the previous one, introducing an AMOLED screen with always-on technology and integration with Alexa voice assistant. In addition, the alarm now has a smart activation function and the watchfaces can be saved (up to 5) directly on the watch.

Garmin Venu SQ

Garmin has been in the world of sports watches for a long time and in the world of smartwatches for some time too, and its Venu line is very popular. This boxy variant (hence the name SQ) is undoubtedly an extremely interesting product. The price is not out of scale and includes exclusive features such as NFC payments and also integrated GPS.

Amazfit T-Rex Pro

The Pro version of Amazfit T-Rex is an extremely similar product to what we have already told. In this case, what mainly changes are the certifications against shocks, stresses and falls, as well as the increase in the number of sports covered. For the rest it remains an exceptional smartwatch which however also winks at the world of sport watches.

Honor Watch GS Pro

It is not hugely different from other Honor and Huawei smartwatches but it still has its strengths. Mainly the robustness with the MIL-STD-810G standard and then with the battery that guarantees almost 3 weeks of autonomy. There are also a handful of exclusive features for hikers. Interesting product also for its price.

TicWatch E3

The third version of TicWatch E is a very interesting product. The autonomy is always one day, but with the new Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor it is lightning and still integrates the Google assistant, Google Pay and even the Play Store to install new applications, directly on the watch.

  • TicWatch E3 Review
  • Operating System: WearOS

Fossil Gen. 5

Fossil is a brand that alone holds almost the entire monopoly of Wear OS smartwatches. The fifth generation introduces new energy saving modes and the ability to make phone calls on the wrist (with the watch connected to the smartphone). Fossil Gen. 5 is the cheapest variant. This is perhaps the best smartwatch for those who want to better manage notifications on Android.

Amazfit GTR 3 Pro

Amazfit GTR 3 Pro is the first smartwatch to bring the new Zepp OS, a renewed operating system from Amazfit. The fundamentals remain the same, but in addition we also find some new features, such as support for the Alexa voice assistant.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

The fourth generation of Galaxy Watch drastically changes its way. Ditch Tizen in favor of Samsung's custom Wear OS with One UI interface. A modern, complete smartwatch that combines the best of both worlds of Google and Samsung, with compatibility with the services of both companies.

OPPO Watch

OPPO was the first (and only) to unhinge Wear OS by customizing it enough to make this OPPO Watch not just another clone with a different design, but something more. Its curved screen is also beautiful and its recharging is incredibly fast which allows you to no longer have to worry about autonomy, just like the excellent energy saving mode.

Apple Watch series 3 (GPS + Cellular)

The third version of Apple Watch returns to the fore in 2019 thanks to the introduction of the fifth version, which led to a maintenance in the list of this smartwatch, at a greatly reduced price. If you've never owned an Apple Watch and want to save money this is your choice!

Fitbit Sense

Fitbit Sense is the first smartwatch that goes beyond the concept of fitness and goes towards that of 360 ° health. It monitors many values ​​related to one's health and also allows you to check the state of stress through sweating of the skin and is also one of the very few devices sold in Italy to also make an ECG.

Apple Watch SE

Undoubtedly Apple Watch SE is the first choice for those who want to buy a new smartwatch to use in combination with an iPhone. It costs slightly more than an older Series 3, but has the advantage of being newer and will be updated for longer. It retains all the major features you might be looking for from this product and is unlikely to make you want anything more.

  • Operating system: watchOS

TicWatch 3 Pro

The best Wear OS smartwatch from Google is undoubtedly TicWatch 3 Pro which offers not only everything you would expect from Wear OS but also a double screen technology that allows you to significantly increase the autonomy of the product, allowing you to reach about 3 full days. Not bad!

  • TicWatch 3 Pro Review
  • OS: Wear OS

TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra

The Ultra version of TicWatch 3 Pro is a product that is not revolutionized compared to the past (the name in fact changes slightly), but it is certainly refined. Now the secondary display has changeable color backlighting and the whole watch has a military standard 810G certification that guarantees it a decidedly record-breaking duration over time. Otherwise TicWatch 3 Pro is usually excellent.

  • Operating system: Wear OS

Garmin Venu 2 Plus

Garmin is mainly known for its sport watches, but there is no doubt that when it puts all its knowledge into the making of a smartwatch the result is not equally incredible. Venu 2 Plus is probably the most complete smartwatch around in every respect. However, it does charge dearly and its interface inherited from professional products is a bit cumbersome.

  • Operating system: proprietary

Huawei Watch 3

Huawei returns with a new advanced smartwatch bringing its new HarmonyOS operating system as a dowry. The watch has therefore been updated to all today's standards and implements not only a blood oxygen monitor, but also a skin temperature sensor. It's comprehensive and fast, only missing the ability to respond to notifications.

  • Huawei Watch 3 Review
  • Operating system: HarmonyOS

Apple Watch series 7

Those who have an iPhone and want to pair a latest generation Apple Watch will necessarily have to point to this Watch series 7 which is the best you can ask for from a watchOS smartwatch. Excellent screen (with always-on mode), pulse oximeter, ECG calculation and perfect integration with iPhone, as well as a Health and Fitness app (also Fitness +) among the best around.

  • Apple Watch series 7 review
  • Operating system: watchOS

Montblanc Summit 2

Perhaps the best Wear OS smartwatch from Google around, although the price is obviously from Montblanc. It is a watch equipped (for the first time) with the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform and is among the most compact on the market, always arriving at the end of the day, even with the display always on. The price is obviously from Montblanc.
