The Apple Watch Series 6 is our favorite as it offers style, features, and fitness.
But there are others that work on both iPhone and Android that are slimmer and more elegant.
Check out our guide to the best smartwatches overall for more buying advice.
Apple helped popularize smartwatches with the launch of the Apple Watch in 2015, which was one of the first smartwatches that appealed to broad audiences beyond those interested in tech.
But it’s also facing increased competition as rivals like Samsung and Fitbit have upgraded the form and functionality of their watches, too.
