1. Apple Watch Series 5

The best smartwatch overall

Sizes: 40mm, 44mm | Battery Life (Rated): 18 hours | GPS: Yes | Swim-Proof: Yes | Heart Rate Monitor: Yes | LTE: Optional | Mobile Payments: Apple Pay | Compatibility: iOS

Always-on display

WatchOS 6 brings Cycle Tracking and App Store
Still just 18-hour battery life

The Apple Watch Series 5’s always-on display makes a meaningful difference in user experience, especially when working out. Now when you glance at your wrist, you’ll always be able to tell the time, with the Apple Watch automatically adjusting to the conditions around you with the help of an ambient light sensor. That always-on display doesn’t drain the watch’s battery, either, though you’ll still want to charge your Apple Watch nightly, as it lacks the multiday battery life that other smartwatches offer.

Apple’s latest watch also includes a built-in compass, which comes in handy while hiking or star-gazing, and also makes Maps more useful by showing you which direction you’re facing at all times. Series 5 looks identical to Series 4, but the newer model comes in fresh finishes — titanium and ceramic — and offers the same advanced health features we loved in the Series 4. This is the best smartwatch you can buy.
