1. Fossil Gen 5 Julianna

The continuation of the series of smartwatches by Fossil will bring long-awaited improvements in comparison with the Gen 4 series. Julianna, a part of the Gen 5 smartwatches, comes in a new gorgeous design and with updated specs, like increased RAM and an external speaker that will let your smartwatch make and receive calls without earphones. Other useful functions include activity and heart rate tracking, signature Google functions like Google Pay and Google Assistant, and water resistance up to 30 meters underwater.

The engine of the smartwatch is the new Snapdragon Wear 3100, which optimizes the battery life, but not much more than the previous generation: an approximate 24 hours of battery life is not very different from the Gen 4. Nevertheless, the Gen 5 features new battery saving modes, that will turn off nonessential wireless communications and dim the display, and the “Time Only” mode will give you a few extra hours only displaying the time. However, if you want to get the most from your device, you will probably need to juice it up every day.

2. Fossil Gen 4 Venture

Another Fossil in our list offers specs not so flashy, but still great for your money: for the price more than $150 cheaper than the updated model, you will get a lot of features, such as Google Pay, built-in GPS and activity and heart rate tracking, normally only found in expensive smartwatches. The Venture’s design is more minimalistic than the Julianna’s which could be an upside for some. The watch’s stainless steel band allows for many color modifications, including gold, rose gold, and silver.

Apart from a gap in price, among the differences between the newer model is the outdated Snapdragon Wear 2100, less storage, and an absence of an external speaker. Nevertheless, handy Google apps, a water-resistant design and activity, and a heart rate tracker are still there, so the Venture is still worth considering. The Gen 4 is a bit outdated, but it still is a great option for those who look for a modern accessory rather than a powerful gadget while saving a considerable amount of money.

 

3. Michael Kors Access Runway

Michael Kors’ Access Runway is a perfect example of a high-end gadget that is also a gorgeous designer accessory. Packed with features usually expected from a smart device, like Google Pay, Google Assistant, built-in GPS, heart rate and activity tracking and many more, the Access Runway is one of a few devices that can boast a stylish and timeless design without compromising the specs. The stainless steel band comes in five colors, among them is gold, pink, black, silver, and rose gold.

In addition to its elegant look, the Access Runway is packed with handy fitness features, like setting customized fitness goals, creating your exercise routes, and tracking burned calories. The fitness programs are tailored to your chosen type of activity and there are quite a lot of activities to choose from, including running, aerobics, boxing, and elliptical. However, even though the Access Runway has a wide array of cool features to help you stay fit, its design isn’t really meant for intense workouts. Another drawback is the gadget’s limited iOS functionality — to keep your smartwatch connected to your iPhone, you’ll have to launch the Wear OS app and keep it running in the background, or otherwise, your device won’t receive any notifications or calls. When connected to a smartphone, the Access Runway can accept or reject calls, but then a pair of earphones is a must, as the device lacks an external speaker.

4. Michael Kors Access Sofie

If a sparkly design is what you value in a smart device, then the Michael Kors Access Sofie is a perfect choice. It can offer an estimated 24 hours of battery life, smartphone synchronization, Google Assistant, and water resistance (which will save your device from dust and splashes but won’t suit for swimming). Fitness functions include activity tracking with Google Fit and steps and calorie tracking.

If you count on built-in GPS, Google Pay, or heart rate tracking, you’ll be missing out on these features. Nevertheless, the Access Sofie is still a good deal if a stylish design is the most important thing you look for in a device. Android users have a double advantage as they have the option of replying to texts from the smartwatch along with accepting and rejecting calls. The bottom line is that if you have a passion for dazzling designs and you can ignore a price gap between more function-packed watches, you can safely go with the Access Sofie.

5. Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch 2

The Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch 2 is a feature-packed successor in a smartwatch series that is tailored for women. The list of features added in comparison with the predecessor of this gadget is pretty impressive and includes onboard GPS, Google Pay, heart rate tracking, and many more. This update didn’t compromise the looks of the device, offering a choice from black, white, pink, gold, and rose gold. Apart from the colors, you can also choose the material of the watchband: silicone, leather, or classic stainless steel.

Google Assistant is also on board, letting you view your notifications, have easy access to music controls, or personalize your watch face. The fitness functions include heart rate and activity tracking, allowing you to keep track of your steps taken and burned calories during exercising. The engine of this device is the outdated Snapdragon Wear 2100, however, it’s not a huge compromise for the gorgeous design of this gadget.
