Whether you use one for receiving quick phone notifications, fitness tracking, or listening to music, smartwatches are a cool tech item that look good and are super functional. Smartwatches are also really easy to use, and are definitely one of those items that once you have one, you’ll wonder why you never had one before. If you have a tech-obsessed or fitness junkie in your life, a smartwatch is a great gift that’s both practical and stylish.
While the smartwatches in the list below tout fitness tracking as their main feature, they have all of the functionality of standard smartwatches, like sending you notifications for texts, calls, and social media updates. If you’re out and about for the day and don’t want to carry a phone with you, a smartwatch is the way to go as you’re still connected without having to hold a separate device.
