What We Like About the Apple Watch Series 6

Talking about the best smart watch in Singapore, one certainly cannot miss out on the Apple Watch. What I like about the watch is its activity challenges – where my June challenge was to clock 20,000 kcals in the month of June, it sounded pretty daunting at the start but it motivated and challenged me to push my limits.

The Always-On Retina Display is now 2.5 times brighter outdoors, so even when exercising in bright sun, you can easily see how long more you have left to finish that set. Not much has to be said about the Apple Watch, one of the hottest amongst Apple users out there, aesthetics check and functionality check!

2. Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

What we like about the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

If you are using an Android device and even better a Samsung phone, this smartwatch has got to be one of the best smart watch options in the market.

We give additional points to its sleek and classy design, allowing one to don it at work and also during workouts, while still maintaining that professional image.

However, if you have more petite wrists, this watch may not be the best option as it is rather heavy and big. The Gear S3 Frontier’s face is protected by Gorilla Glass, and it’s MIL-SPEC-810G rated to withstand drops of about 5 feet.

What We Like About the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 Gen

Another all-time favourite Samsung pick is the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 Gen which we like for its sleek and lightweight design.

What We Like About the Fitbit Versa 3

With an integrated GPS and improved product specs, you can expect an improved battery life, an improved screen display which makes it a strong competitor against the Apple Watch.

In terms of usability of the watch, reviews have it that instead of a physical button, there’s now an indent on the left side of the watch to replace the button which at times is hard to navigate.

What We Like About the Fitbit Luxe

Aesthetics checked – Luxe has a chic design that complements any outfit. The slim profile, stainless steel case and comfortable band make it a wardrobe essential. On the health and fitness, sleep and wellness aspects, we think the functionalities are pretty much the same across the board.

However, the Fitbit Luxe has a “Little Luxuries” category, consisting of Google fast pair, do not disturb and notifications features. Though the features do not particularly scream unique to us, the Fitbit brand is definitely a reputable one, if you decide to go with a crowd favourite!

What We Like About the Oppo Watch

The Oppo watch made it into our best smart watches pick due to its sleek design and curved watch surfaces which undeniably resembles that of the Apple Watch. Like many other smart watches which allows for the customization of watch faces to suit your outfit and mood, you could also do so on the Oppo Watch.

What We Like About the Huawei Band 6

The vibrant and interactive screen display was what caught our eyes, also available in 3 pretty shades, we give aesthetics a check. We also like the Huawei Band 6 for its multiple watch faces, allowing you to change it based on your mood!

However, feedback has it that the Huawei health application requires the enablement of many permissions in order to use the watch features. If you’re uncomfortable with the sharing of your personal data, this might not be your go-to choice.

Polar Ignite – your versatile workout partner. Polar Ignite is specially made for supporting your workouts, with an integrated GPS that tracks your speed, distance and route. With it being waterproof, it can not only support your outdoor activities like running and cycling but also clocking in the distance you swam.

We also like their FitSpark Training Guide which offers pre-planned workouts – if you are feeling a cardio session or looking at a recovery workout, stretch and lower intensity plans are also available at the click of a button.
