Apple Watch Series 6: The watch connected to the apple remains the queen
If Apple has not really revolutionized its formula with its sixth smartwatch, the apple company retains the lead in the ranking. The reason? A perfect synchronization with other brand devices. And while Android users won’t have such a smooth experience, they’ll still have the best smartwatch available to them today.
The only big change compared to the Apple Watch Series 5, this Series 6 adds monitoring of the rate of oxygenation of the blood as well as a chip with increased power Depth. On the other hand, the autonomy of 18 hours remains disappointing.
In terms of design and screen, the object remains almost identical to its predecessor. We therefore have a 1.78 inch OLED screen, 32 GB storage and water resistance up to 50 m.

OPPO Watch: best Garmin smartwatch for women
As the name suggests the Oppo Smartwatch is Oppo’s flagship smartwatch. It is the first to be equipped with the Wear OS operating system from Google. Its elegant design makes it a perfect model for the fairer sex. Indeed, it displays a case combining aluminum and ceramic in shades of midnight blue, offering a very pleasant premium appearance. This rectangular smartwatch is also the only one on the market to be equipped with LTE technology using an eSim card.
The right part has two rectangular keys and a microphone. The button at the top displays the lists of the different applications. While the one at the bottom acts as a configurable shortcut to access the preferred program. To the left of the case is its speaker. It broadcasts, most often, a correct sound quality to maintain a telephone discussion.
This feature also allows certain information to be collected from the Google Assistant. As for the screen, it benefits from a very aesthetic AMOLED panel. Regarding the interface, it undergoes some improvements. To top it off, OPPO Watch offers the possibility to choose between five types of sports such as walking, intensive or simple running, swimming as well as cycling.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3: The best high-end smartwatch besides Apple
Thanks to a revised design, the Samsung smartwatch gains in elegance, comfort and discretion. There is a change, but the Korean manufacturer has taken care not to remove the rotary dial, still pleasant to use on this model. However, the novelties are more notorious at the software level, Tizen OS. Thus, the latter is more fluid and works better with iOS, although he still prefers Android. Samsung has also equipped its Galaxy Watch 3 connected watch with a robust set of features dedicated to sport and health.
Between swimming and running, the more athletic will have much to improve with many measures. As for health, we have a heart rate sensor and a sleep sensor. More advanced, we also have, but an SpO2 sensor (for the oxygen saturation of the blood), a blood pressure sensor and an electrocardiogram. Unfortunately, the latter two are still inactive in Europe.
To this, we must also add that the autonomy of barely 2 days (1.5 days in a little more intensive use) is more than disappointing. Despite everything, the very coherent package both in terms of aesthetics and functionality makes it one of the best alternatives to the Apple Watch for Android users.
