  1. Apple Watch 4- The Apple Watch Series 4 is the best smartwatch you can buy right now. This is the first time Apple has updated their design of it’s smartwatch line, and it looks smooth and slick. You get a much bigger screen with the choice of 40mm or 44mm watch sizes, there's a wider display (which is still bright and clear) as well as all the rest of the tech we've come to expect from the Apple Watch. Even the speaker on the watch is louder than before. It’s lightweight and you can use all your existing Apple watch straps.

    The dope thing about this watch is it has the ECG feature within the heart rate tracker. It can test your heart to see if you're at a high risk of atrial fibrillation, which will allow you to seek help earlier if your health is in danger. How dope is that! $384

2.Samsung Galaxy Watch- Samsung stepped their game up with this one. The new sporty watch from Samsung is one of a kind. The larger 46mm version of the watch it’s cool and it comes with a phenomenal four day battery life, so you don’t have to worry about charging it every few hours.. That's impressive considering a lot of other watches last a day or so from a single charge. The rotating bezel remains a highlight of navigating around the Tizen OS on the watch, and the interface is one of the easiest to pick up that we've seen on a smartwatch. The sporty watch comes with multiple app’s on the phone that can help you stay fit! Did I mention it’s very affordable! $198.49
