Smart Watch Recommendation

Hey Guys,

Hopefully, this is the right thread.

Just after some recommendations. Can anyone recommend any smartwatches with good battery life and heart rate monitor? I have the Samsung S10, so will need to be compatible with that.

Thanks in advance.

For the convenience of having Samsung Pay on the wrist, ability to wireless charge the watch, compatibility, health tracking, no brainer to get the Galaxy Watch Active / Active 2.

I have the standard 42mm Galaxy Watch. I expect the Watch Active 2 to have comparable battery life, which means easily getting through the day for normal use and AOD off
. The Active 2 is the one to get, as it has a speaker and can take calls and it's got a digital rotating bezel. When I go for a run, I stream music from the watch and use Strava. It'll use about 30% battery during this activity for my usual 10k run. No problem to charge again. But having the ability to charge from my S10 Plus wirelessly when abroad is a godsend. No extra cables / docks needed.

If I hadn't bought the normal Galaxy Watch at the start of the year, I would've bought the Active 2 that's just been released. But my Watch has had the One UI software upgrade and, I prefer the physical bezel, so all good for another few years...

Not that I use it much, but keeps pace / consistent with my phone readings.

Seriously, it's the best option if you already have a Samsung mobile. Health tracking is great. Lots of watch faces. Not bothered that it doesn't have the apps available with Wear OS; it's got the core stuff required but a smartwatch and aesthetically looks good.

Thanks for all the info bro. Really appreciate it and it's very helpful. I went to test the Active 2 today in the shop and it's very impressive and i liked how responsive it was. And as you say, very aesthetically pleasing on the eye. I was also very surprised with how light it was too. I think I'll go for it.
