I never used to train with a Smart watch. It was just one of those items I didn’t want to spend money on. That only lasted until I had my first smart watch. And of course I never looked back again. I can’t believe how much I missed out being so stubborn. Here are links to the 3 Best Smart Watches to buy in 2021. I go into more detail about why I like them later on in this article.

My Favorite Smart Watches Reviews
Here are my reviews of the best smart watches in 2021 to help you choose the right one for your fitness needs. Training blindly is a thing of the past. You don’t have to get obsessive about it but looking at your results after a hard session, or just looking for extra motivation makes using a smart watch totally worth it. Not to mention all the other add-on uses for everyday life. But first, have a look at this video.
#1 Fitbit Charge 4 Fitness and Activity Tracker
|Price||Check pricing here|
With the built-in GPS you can see your pace and distance on the screen while training outdoors or indoors. You can watch your heart rate changes along your route without the need for extra straps. And get a buzz when you reach your target heart rate zone. It is swim proof and water resistant up to 50m and can be worn in the shower too.
Sync your Fitbit Charge 4 Smart Watch to your mobile device via Bluetooth LE and internet connection. Long lasting battery (up to 7 days) depending on use.
#2 SAMSUNG Galaxy Watch Active 2 Smart Watch
With the built-in pace coaching, you will get better insights into your training to help you reach your fitness goals. Making heart rate monitoring easy, you will receive an automatic alert if your watch detects a too high or low heart rate. Get valuable insights on your sleeping patterns with a built-in sleep tracker.
Being more than just a fitness tracker, you can take calls, receive messages and notifications, and roam the internet all through your Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch. Battery lasting more than a full day depending on usage.
#3 Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch
With the Alexa built-in you can use your voice to set a timer, get the weather etc. The larger display also makes it easy to have a quick glance to see the info on your watch. You can track all the fitness information you require like heart rate, steps, distance, calories burned etc. The sleep tracking feature makes sure your time in light, deep and REM sleep stages is tracked and gives you valuable insights into your sleeping habits.
With your phone nearby, you can also call, text and get calendar and smartphone app notifications. Long lasting battery life with up to 6 days depending on use.
All 3 watches are on the Amazon choice list. You won’t go wrong buying any one of them. My favourite though would have to be no 3, the Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch. It is not the top Amazon choice for no reason. I love the bigger face (I have been struggling too many times having to stop dead still in the middle of my workout, just to try and read what is on my watch.)
The Alexa feature is a great added bonus. Added to that you get all the basics you need plus it has a great battery life. No point in tracking everything if your watch is busy charging half the time and not on your arm. Oh and did I mention if you have a Spotify, Deezer or Pandora (US only) subscription, you can download and play 300 plus songs on your wrist. Being a woman, a big plus for me is also the fact that I can choose a color I love. Boring black is gone. Time for some color.
Thanks for reading and I hope this guide will help you build a stronger life.
