We're committed to providing the most comprehensive guide on the web. Don't be afraid of the length of this article. If you are looking for something in particular (cheap smartwatches, for sports, Android / iPhone, for kids, etc.), you can look at the handy table of contents below to find the section that interests you.

Samsung Galaxy Watch3
Let's start our selection of the best smartwatches with Samsung's new premium model, the Galaxy Watch3.

Compared to previous generations, this watch sees the return of the rotating bezel, which makes it possible to navigate through the various menus with extreme precision and naturalness, always maintaining maximum visibility on the screen.

The design is elegant and perfect to be worn on the wrist repeatedly. the AMOLED screen is very bright, with excellent visibility even in direct sunlight. In addition, the built-in light sensor works quite well, avoiding the "headlight in the night" effect at night. Water-resistant to 5 ATM and with IP68 certification, the watch reaches military standards for resistance to extreme weather situations.

The sports industry has done well, with around 40 controllable workouts. The precision of the measurements is high, both on the point value and on the average.

The management of notifications is very practical, with the possibility of voice response or emoji. In addition, it is possible to answer voice calls with a good degree of understanding.

In addition, the Galaxy Watch3 has a series of sensors (accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, etc.) which sometimes lack precision, while remaining on acceptable standards. Measurement of the oxygen level in the blood is also available. In addition, the watch also incorporates sensors for ECG and blood pressure measurement, features not yet active in the Italian market.

Also interesting is the possibility of downloading songs and playlists locally using Spotify or the preinstalled music player: in this way, it will not be necessary to take the smartphone with you to listen to music, but Bluetooth headsets will suffice.

Finally, it's worth mentioning the Samsung Health app, which we looked at in more detail in the Galaxy Fit e smart bracelet review. This application is certainly among the most valuable at the moment, thanks to the excellent level of detail and the customization options offered.

Battery life can be improved, reaching 2 days of continuous use, but decreases significantly with GPS and active training.

Certainly one of the best products in the category. To find out more, read our Samsung Galaxy Watch3 review.

Apple Watch Series 5
Among the best smartwatches of 2020, the most iconic watch on the market could not possibly be missing: Apple Watch Series 5.

The Bitten Apple smartwatch, now in its fifth generation, still remains one of users' favorite models and arguably the best smartwatch ever, although the price isn't exactly accessible and the compatibility limited to only Apple devices

Finally comes the always exposed, great lack of previous versions and the compass, which further embellishes the equipment of this watch.

The design is that of the previous versions, with a rectangular dial with rounded corners. Sleek and comfortable to wear, it lends itself perfectly to a variety of uses.

According to Apple tradition, the build quality is at the top, with a sapphire ceramic back and a sturdy and durable case.

The hardware sector is excellent which, unlike previous models, adds support for WiFi (unfortunately only for one band). In addition, the OLED display has an absolutely above average quality and definition, with excellent visibility in the sun.

There are many sensors (accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, GPS + Glonass), which make the Apple Watch a versatile and flexible product, therefore suitable for multiple uses.

Let's move on to drums. It can certainly be said that this is not one of the strengths of the watch. In fact, it's difficult to achieve two full days of use. With the arrival of the always displayed, this could drop another 10 to 15%.

Now we come to the software sector. Apple's best smartwatch rides WatchOs 5, an operating system focused on usability and ease of navigation. At first it can be hard to get used to, but after the first few uses this software turns out to be one of the best in the class.

The possibility of performing an EKG directly from the wrist is very interesting.
