Analysis of the best smart watches for men

7 AGPTEK Smartwatch

A natural step up from your basic fitness tracker

Price quality: 95%

Functions: 80%

Reliability 88%

  • Display: 1.3 inch IPS TFT, 240 x 240 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy: 7 days
  • System: Android 4.4, iOS 8.0 or higher
  • Sensors: pedometer, sleep monitor, heart rate
  • Dimensions and weight: 45 g
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0
  • Submersible: IP68 (1.5 meters)

The AGPTEK G20 watch has a clear sporty design . And that is its main function, so it can be interesting for those who want to go a step further from their activity bracelet.

If we analyze it from a smartwatch perspective, the features are somewhat limited: it only has 3 dials available, it does not have integrated GPS and, although it allows you to receive notifications from the main messaging apps, it does not give you the option to respond to them.

Its ability to submerge is not top notch: the brand does not report atmospheres (ATM) and merely indicates IP68 , which suggests basic water resistance , despite the fact that it includes a swimming mode.

However, it is the cheapest model in this ranking of smart watches for men, and it can be very suitable for those who want a watch with basic functions, reliable and with a good design.

In addition, it includes other surprising and practical functions, such as taking pictures remotely with the connected mobile.

Its charge is quite fast (2 hours) and its side buttons make it easy and intuitive to use , reminiscent of the timers of yesteryear.

The package includes two straps : one in leather and one in silicone, allowing you to vary your style from more elegant to more sporty, depending on the situation.

PROS

  • Price
  • Consultation of notifications

CONTRAS

  • few dials
  • no gps
  • submersibility

6 AmazFit GTR

One of the most durable models of the brand… which is not little!

Price quality: 94%

Functions: 88%

Reliability 92%

  • Screen: AMOLED 1.39 inches, 454 x 454 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy: 24 days (normal use), 74 days (basic mode), 40 hours (with GPS)
  • System: Android 5.0 and iOS 10.0 or higher
  • Sensors: BioTrackerTM PPG bio-tracking optical sensor, 6-axis accelerometer, 3-axis geomagnetic, air pressure, capacity, ambient light sensor, GPS + GLONASS
  • Dimensions and weight: 47.2 x 47.2 x 10.75mm, 36-48g (without strap) depending on case material
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0
  • Submersible: 5 ATM

The 47mm Amazfit GTR is the men’s smartwatch of this model and, thanks to its larger size, it considerably increases some features compared to the ‘small’ 42mm version.

The most striking thing is the durability of its battery, reaching a spectacular 24 days in normal use . It is also very well endowed in terms of the variety of sensors and the resolution of its screen . And best of all: at a very reasonable price .

For all these reasons, it can be considered a very complete and balanced smartwatch. Among its weak points is perhaps the weight in its stainless steel version (48 g).

In any case, it is a fairly thin model that does not bother the wrist . As far as the number of sports is concerned, its 12 modes cannot compete with other more sports-oriented watches, but they will be enough for an amateur user, including shallow sports such as snorkeling or swimming.

Its screen stands out for its high resolution and for the variety of designs available , with more than 100. In it you can check the incoming notifications of the main apps and control the music playing on a connected smartphone.

PROS

  • Sensors
  • Drums
  • Screen

5 AmazFit T-Rex

Great resistance and durability – Ideal for the mountain

Price quality: 93%

Functions: 91%

Reliability 93%

  • Display: 1.3-inch AMOLED, 360 x 360 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy: 20 days (normal use), 66 days (basic mode), 20 hours (with GPS)
  • System: Android 5.0 and iOS 10.0 or higher
  • Sensors: BioTracker PPG optical biotracking sensor, 3-axis acceleration, geomagnetic, ambient light, GPS, GLONASS
  • Dimensions and weight: 47.7 x 47.7 x 13.5mm, 58g (with strap)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0
  • Submersible: 5 ATM

The great claim of the Amazfit T-Rex is its “military” resistance, in the words of the brand itself. In fact, the design of its case and its strap are in that line.

Some of the certifications reported by the brand refer to its resistance to cold (-40ºC) and heat (70ºC) , so it can be considered one of the best men’s smartwatches for mountain sports .

However, in terms of functions such as smartwatch, we have to consider it a ‘mirror’ option, that is, as a mirror of the connected smartphone, but not a device with autonomous functionalities. It shows notifications and incoming calls , but you can’t answer them.

It allows you to control the music being played , but it does not have internal storage or the ability to play it directly.

It has 14 sports modes and the advanced health control is carried out with its prestigious BioTracker PPG.

Its autonomy is another of the most remarkable features, with 20 days in normal use . On the contrary, that implies a size and weight above average, so it cannot be said that the user forgets that he is wearing it.

  • Endurance
  • Durability

CONTRAS

4 Honor Magic Watch 2

A feature-packed smartphone… for HONOR users

Price quality: 94%

Functions: 93%

Reliability 94%

  • Display: 1.39-inch AMOLED, 454 x 454 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy: 14 days (normal use)
  • Sistema: Android
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, heart rate, ambient light and barometer, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo
  • Dimensions and weight: 41 g (without strap)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.1, HONOR ecosystem
  • Submersible: 5 ATM

It can be said, without fear of failure, that this is one of the best smartwatches for men. But with an important nuance: only for users of the HONOR ecosystem . In this case, the universe of possibilities is huge, and the compatibility is very advanced.

For example, to listen to music: thanks to its 4 GB of internal storage , songs can be saved and played independently, which can be listened to on HONOR Sport PRO headphones.

Or, its speaker and microphone can be used to answer and make calls if it is connected to a smartphone from the brand.

You can also configure simple and useful functions without having to go through your mobile , such as setting an alarm or checking the weather .

However, outside of that compatibility, the user will find important limitations. Without going any further, it does not work with iOS .

Its design is remarkably elegant , with a leather strap available, but it has also worked notably on the sporty aspect. In this sense, its 15 training modes stand out, which also have voice guidance in off.

And another distinctive feature is the customization of the spheres : in addition to those already available, the user can create his own with images stored on the watch.

PROS

  • speaker and microphone
  • Internal storage
  • Elegant design

CONTRAS

  • iOS incompatibility

3 Motorola Moto 360

A smartwatch with the power of Wear OS

Price quality: 92%

Functions: 95%

Reliability 94%

  • Display: 1.2-inch AMOLED, 390 x 390 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy:
  • System: Android 6.0 and iOS 12.0 or higher
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, heart rate, ambient light, GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo
  • Dimensions and Weight: 42.8 x 42.8 x 11.68mm, 52g
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, WiFi
  • Submersible: 3 ATM

One of the most surprising niches (for the better) of the legendary Motorola brand is that of smartwatches. And the Moto 360 is a good example of this. It is a smart watch for men with many features, thanks to the fact that it works with the Wear OS operating system, from Google .

That, together with its powerful hardware, results in one of the best models currently available for those who do not want to spend many hundreds of euros on their purchase.

It has 8 GB of internal storage , which allows you to store numerous songs and play them locally.

Its aesthetic is that of the watches of yesteryear , especially if the leather strap is chosen. However, it has a drawback, which gives us clues to its uses and limitations: it only has a 3 ATM classification to be submerged in water, which means that it is not a watch exactly designed for the most extreme water sports… although the brand ensures that it is tested for 10,000 swimming strokes.

That contrasts with its variety of geopositioning systems (GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo). Finally, fast charging (100% in 60 minutes) is also a point in its favor.

PROS

  • Wear OS
  • functions
  • Fast charge

CONTRAS

  • Weight
  • submersibility

2 SoundPeats Watch 2 – Men’s Smartwatch with the best quality price

Elegant, with all the necessary functions and impeccable operation for its price

Price quality: 98%

Functions: 92%

Reliability 92%

  • Screen: 1.28 inches 240 x 240 px
  • Autonomy: 15 days (normal use), 7 days (heart rate monitor always activated)
  • System: Android 6.0 or iOS 10.0 and later versions
  • Sensors: pulse, O2 saturation, sleep monitor
  • Dimensions: 45.5 x 45.5 x 11mm
  • Weight: 38g
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0
  • Submersible: IP68

The SoundPeats smartwatch is truly a unisex watch because it fits by design on male or female wrists . In fact, it is a watch with a somewhat smaller dial than usual, something that you will appreciate if you have a small wrist , this is my case and after having used it for several weeks, it is the one I find most comfortable with, even using it to sleep .

Its performance is very good:

  • Pairs perfectly
  • Its app presents a very clean and easy to use design
  • You can control the music from your mobile or tablet
  • Monitor hours of sleep accurately

It is a watch that suits very well due to its elegant but discreet design, both for men who wear it with more formal clothes or for a more sporty look . In fact, I use it for sports and it is very comfortable.

It has 12 sports modes – although there are better sports watches in this regard – but for basic time and pulse logging use, it works reasonably well.

I liked the app a lot , it shows that they have taken care of its design and it is quite polished, you can configure multiple sections, such as the notifications you want to arrive, the time the screen lights up (the brightness is done from the clock itself) , the cover to show, vibrating alarms (ideal for waking up without making a fuss), reminders to move, check the weather and a few more.

One of the things that I liked and that not all watches have, is that you can find the mobile using the locator function from the watch   and that you can control the music on the mobile from the watch.

On the downside is that, although it has 12 sports modes, its pulse and oxygen saturation measurements are not as accurate as more expensive watches.

What I really liked is that you can see the maps where you have been doing sports from your App and configure a voice assistant for training.

PROS

  • Good value for money
  • Slim and elegant design
  • very comfortable to wear
  • efficient operation

CONTRAS

  • upgradable sensors

1 Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 – Best men’s smartwatch

A watch with the Samsung stamp… and all its advanced features

Price quality: 92%

Functions: 96%

Reliability 96%

  • Screen: Super AMOLED 1.2 inches, 360 x 360 pixel resolution
  • Autonomy: 2.3 days (normal use), 6.2 days (saving mode)
  • System: Android 5.0 and iOS 9.0 or higher
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyroscope, Ambient Light, Heart Rate, GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo
  • Dimensions and Weight: 46.2 x 45.0 x 11.1mm, 53g
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, NFC
  • Submersible: 5 ATM

The 45mm Samsung Watch 3 is one of the best smartwatches a man can buy today. Its functions are as advanced as those of the HONOR Magic Watch 2, but with an important difference: although its use with Samsung devices multiplies its functionalities, it can also be used with good results with other brands , including Apple.

It has 8 GB of internal storage, WiFi connection and full functionality with apps like Spotify, so the user can choose whether to listen to music locally or streaming .

It has a microphone and speaker, allowing the user to make calls independently , although the best listening option will be the Galaxy Buds , especially in music.

As for screen designs, there are more than 40 available. And such a popular model is also a guarantee of variety in terms of straps , both from the brand and from other compatible brands.

However, this analysis would be incomplete if we did not refer to its great limitation: the battery . According to data from the brand, the watch has a range of 56 hours in normal use, which does not even reach 2 and a half days. And if it is given a little intensive use, it only goes up to 51 hours.

PROS

  • functions
  • Elegance
  • reliability

CONTRAS

  • Drums

Another interesting men’s smartwatch option: FitBit Versa 3

If none of the 7 proposed models convinces you, here we provide one more alternative: Fitbit Versa 3 .

It will convince you if you are looking for men’s activity watches, since its main function is this: monitoring training and the state of health , something in which this brand has managed to position itself very well.

Now, you should keep in mind that the most accurate reports and measurements are achieved with the Fitbit Premium service, at a separate cost.

All this is accessible by voice, since it has integrated Alexa , as well as Google Assistant . For this, of course, it has a microphone and speaker, so it can be used to answer calls and messages directly from the smartphone, as long as it is linked to it.

This also allows, among other functions, listening to music from apps like Spotify, but not independently, since it does not have internal storage available to save songs.

In summary…

  • AGPTEK G20 is the cheapest watch on the list, but with amazing features
  • Amazfit GTR has everything good about this brand and, in addition, a spectacular battery
  • Amazfit T-Rex is an all-rounder for adventure lovers
  • HONOR Magic Watch 2 is a very advanced model if used with devices of this brand
  • Motorola Moto 360 offers many features thanks to the fact that it works with Wear OS
  • Soundpeats Watch 2 is an excellent option if you don’t want to spend too much, but you want guarantees of proper functioning.
  • Samsung Watch 3 is an almost perfect smartwatch if it weren’t for its short battery.
