Smartwatches are a versatile tool that tells more than, well, time. They offer various functions like call & message notifications, fitness tracking, music control and so on. Here, we will cover some of the best Android smartwatches that you can purchase online.
If you’re looking to have a smartwatch for your travels in the wilderness, the Suunto 9 Baro will keep up! With many features that make it durable including a sapphire crystal display and smooth silicone straps, the Suunto 9 Baro also packs something else that’s big – battery.
On a full charge at 100%, one can get a battery life lasting over 7 days. If you’re still out with 10% battery left, the watch goes into a battery-saving mode, minimising power usage on other background features.
The Suunto 9 Baro supports many sports modes such as Swimming (up to 100m in depth), Badminton, Martial Arts, Gymnastics, and HIIT. Also functioning as an altitude barometer, it’s the perfect fit for sports like mountain climbing.
Suunto 9 Baro functions for both Android and iOS users, so everyone can enjoy the offerings of the Suunto 9.
Aside from indoors, do you like exercising outdoors or have an affinity for constant jungle trekking and hiking? The Suunto 9 Baro is highly durable and can definitely stay on top of the game with you. Maybe, even outsmart you.
With a built-in GPS on the Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit 2, you no longer need to carry your phone with you. This is particularly useful when you are exercising outdoors like jogging and cycling. Now, tracking your real-time stats like speed and distance has never been this convenient.
But of course, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit 2 isn’t just about the GPS functionality. The smartwatch also boasts a 1.5-inch curved rectangle touchscreen with a Super AMOLED display, which is both bright and sufficient enough to check your stats during a workout or any ongoing activities.
This entry-level smartwatch from Huawei is particularly suitable for budget-conscious buyers. With an affordable price below RM 200, you’ll get an IP67-rated smartwatch that is both waterproof and dustproof. It also comes with a few fitness-tracking features such as a heart rate monitor, a pedometer and a calorie counter. This is amazing for the price you’re paying!
The familiar phrase of “first impression matters” certainly rings true for the Xiaomi Huami Amazfit Pace. The smartwatch boasts a minimalist design that definitely looks good on your wrist. The 1.34-inch display is large enough to read the screen with minimum fuss.
This is also a good smartwatch for sports lovers. It comes with essential features to track your speed, distance, as well as calories and heart rate, thanks to its built-in PPG heart rate sensor. Available in different straps including black, red and metal.
Let’s face it, round-shaped smartwatches are more popular than the square varieties. But that doesn’t mean square smartwatches are unappealing. Take the Asus ZenWatch 2, for instance. It boasts a fashionable square watch face covered with a premium stainless steel case. You can also customise your watch face with up to 50 different designs by downloading the FaceDesigner app.
As for the smart functionality, you can use the Asus ZenWatch 2 to make phone calls, send text messages and monitor your fitness goals using the built-in pedometer and activity tracker. The smartwatch also supports fast charging, and you can get at least 50% battery with approximately 30 minutes of charge.
The Fossil Q Tailor is specially made for the ladies out there. It’s a hybrid smartwatch that offers the best of both worlds: analog and smart connectivity. It boasts standard features like activity tracking and smartphone notifications. The light brown leather strap complements well with the smartwatch’s overall elegant design. Best of all, the strap is interchangeable.
The Fossil Q hybrid smartwatch range isn’t just reserved for the ladies. Not to be left out are the gentlemen, with the suave-looking Fossil Q Grant. Like the Fossil Q Tailor, it features both analog and smart functions. You just need to install the Fossil Q app and sync with your smartphone.
Once it’s done, you can customise call notifications and set up a second-time-zone. You can also monitor your sleep pattern and keeping track of your daily activities such as the number of steps taken, amount of calories burned and so on.
Sometimes it’s just inconvenient to bring your smartphone everywhere with you, especially when you’re just heading out for a short while. Thanks to Diggro DI05, you can now leave your smartphone at home since this watch comes with a dedicated SIM card slot. That means you can make a call, send text messages and even download apps using the smartwatch alone.
It supports both WLAN and 3G network, enabling you to gain a fast internet connection. Some of the other features included in the Diggro DI05 are heart rate monitor, pedometer, music player and sleep tracker.
Believe it or not, there aren’t many smartwatches on the market that comes with a built-in camera. But in the case of the Aipker DZ09, this smartwatch comes with a 2MP camera. It also sports a 1.56-inch colour touchscreen along with numerous functions like audio player, pedometer, sleep monitor and sedentary reminder.
