Reviewing the best smartwatches of 2022 to suit any budget, focusing on Wear OS and Android users rather than the Apple Watch. From Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and the Google Pixel to the greatest affordable options, here’s my top 12 smartwatches right now for fitness tracking, battery life and more.
The fresh Google Pixel Watch is certainly one of my favourites for Android smartphone pairing. You’ve got impressive features like turn-by-turn navigation and that Google Assistant works well. However, the battery runs dry every day, so the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will suit you better if you’re always on the go. Especially as that Sammy smartwatch is more durable.
I’ve reviewed the Pro as well as the regular Samsung Watch 5, plus big rivals like the Huawei Watch GT3 which delivers even better battery life. That’s certainly one of the greatest options in 2022 for longevity, along with the Amazfit GTR4. Although their notification support, app selection etc isn’t as good as the Pixel Watch or those Galaxy watches.
