Smart watches have long become a trend among those who love active pastime and keep up with the times. At the current stage of production, they have incorporated so many capabilities and tolerances that they can be considered full-fledged mini-computers.

That is why the magazine carefully studied the segment and selected 13 of the best women's smartwatches. User reviews, expert opinions, as well as a comparison of the visual and technical characteristics of all models were taken as criteria for compiling the rating.

Samsung Galaxy Watch (42 mm)
Smartwatch rating: 4.9
Perhaps the most unusual concept of a women's smartwatch that you would never expect to see from a manufacturer of technology and smart gadgets. Suddenly, for myself, the Samsung Galaxy Watch turned out to be a very successful combination of elegance, style and functionality, and not for the largest price. This model uses its own operating system Tizen, which supports connection with both the platform iOS and Android versions 8 and 5.0, respectively. Super AMOLED – the 1.18-inch display is framed by a stainless steel case and has an IP68 waterproof rating, which allows you not to take off the watch while taking a shower without much risk.
Samsung Galaxy Watch has advanced multimedia functions: it can independently play music and output it to third-party devices. All this became possible thanks to the built-in speaker and Wi-Fi / Bluetooth 4.2 interfaces. In addition, we will note the presence of a microphone and an NFC module for contactless payment.
- huge functionality;
- the ability to listen to music directly from the watch;
- 2-core Exynos 9110 processor with a frequency of 1.15 GHz, 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory;
- working time from 48 to 120 hours;
- the presence of an NFC chip;
- beautiful design.
- not found.
Apple Watch Series 4 GPS 44mm Aluminum Case with Sport Loop
Smartwatch rating: 4.8
The undisputed trend among women's smartwatches is Apple Watch Series 4, which opens up new facets for lovers of an active lifestyle. Obviously, they work exclusively with devices on the platform iOS, but not older than 12th version. The case of this particular model is made of aluminum and ceramic, and the bracelet is made of textiles. At the same time, the touchscreen is quite ordinary, “wrapped” in mineral glass and corresponding to the WR50 water resistance class. It is noteworthy that with all the described structural part, their weight is only 36.7 grams.
From the system part Apple Watch Series 4, we can distinguish that the smart watch is based on a 2-core processor Apple S4, supplemented by 16 GB of internal memory. In addition to standard metrics, they can be used to take ECGs (although the function is available only in the USA) and use the built-in “Walkie-talkie” application. There is only one drawback: extremely low battery life – only 18 hours.
- durable aluminum-ceramic body;
- abundance of built-in functionality;
- powerful system part (processor Apple S4);
- the ability to play audio.
- autonomy of work is limited to 18 hours.
Michael Kors MKT5055
Smartwatch rating: 4.7
American-made smart watches for women, made especially for sophisticated and elegant sports lovers. For a fairly high price, you can get a unique design using a multi-part liquid crystal AMOLED – display under mineral glass, a steel case with a pink PVD coating, as well as a convenient silicone strap.
And if in terms of the appearance parameters Michael Kors MKT5055 can be called an outstanding model of smart watches, then in terms of filling and functionality it is similar to FOSSIL Gen 4 and ARMANI Connected ART9005. True, with the exception of measuring the height, but you expect a little more from a branded thing. You also need to charge them after 24 hours, which is still a big drawback.
- divided projection of the dial on AMOLED – display;
- very beautiful body finish;
- a wide range of functions and capabilities;
- powerful system components.
- the charge lasts for 24 hours;
- high price.
Suunto Kailash SS021240000
Smartwatch rating: 4.6
The large Finnish smartwatch Suunto Kailash SS021240000 is a good choice for those who love active pastime. True, they are not suitable for everyone, since they only support gadgets on the platform iOS. The silicone strap and case are complemented by a digital display enclosed by a sapphire crystal. Their waterproof rating corresponds to the WR100 class, which allows you to swim and dive freely in hours without scuba gear.
The battery in Suunto Kailash SS021240000 uses a capacious lithium-ion battery that lasts 720 hours of continuous operation in standby mode. With active use, this figure drops to 240 hours, but still remains acceptable for users.
- battery life ranges between 240 and 720 hours;
- moisture protection class WR100;
- original appearance with large features of the components.
- can only take indicators of physical activity;
- only supports devices on iOS.
FOSSIL Gen 4 Smartwatch Venture HR (silicone)
Smartwatch rating: 4.5
This women's smartwatch makes a very strong impression on those around you at first sight. It seems that everything is correct in them: a large electronic dial in a stainless steel case, refined silicone straps, a harmonious display of the main screen icons with nice fonts, etc.
FOSSIL Gen 4 Smartwatch Venture HR work on the basis of the operating system Android Wear, but they allow to interface not only with Android – smartphones, but also with gadgets on the platform iOS not older than version 9. The processor in this model uses a Wear 2100 chip Qualcomm Snapdragon, backed up by 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. By the way, smart watches really have something to remember: in addition to basic metrics, they give access to a heart rate monitor, thermometer, gyroscope, Google Pay service and other technological chips. Discharged in 24 hours, and this is the only significant drawback that we can note.
- very beautiful appearance;
- visually pleasing display of information on the display;
- an abundance of built-in management functions and metrics;
- powerful component part.
- the battery is designed for only 24 hours of active use of the watch;
- high price.
ARMANI Connected ART9005
Smartwatch rating: 4.5
The ARMANI Connected ART9005 Women's Smart Watch is a style complemented by high technology. Behind the visual appeal of the finish of a smart watch, there is a great deal of functionality and built-in power. For example, 512 MB of RAM or 4 GB of memory, allowing you to remember a huge number of activities and captured metrics.
The case and strap of the ARMANI Connected ART9005 smartwatch are made of stainless steel with a rose gold finish, which is combined with a black AMOLED – a 1.19-inch display enclosed by an impact-resistant mineral glass. By default, the watch has built-in sleep quality monitoring, physical activity analysis, pedometer and heart rate monitor, as well as many organizational functions that distinguish a business person. The key drawback of all this: the battery, which allows you to actively use the smartwatch for only 24 hours.
- branded item in perfect design;
- an abundance of working functions and metrics available for taking measurements;
- powerful processor-based “stuffing” Qualcomm Snapdragon;
- 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal memory.
- short battery life;
- very high price.
Garmin Forerunner 245
Smartwatch rating: 4.5
The high cost of this model of smart watches is due to the exceptional accuracy of the settings of all counters and sensors: the always “lying” pedometer here has an error of no more than 1%. In addition, Garmin Forerunner 245 tries to target all popular platforms: not only Android and iOS, but even Windows and OS X. The electronic display with a diagonal of 1.2 inches is framed by a silicone case with a strap made of the same material, as if hinting at its belonging to the sports segment.
And here we should abruptly move on to the functionality. The fact is that the Garmin Forerunner 245 is positioned not only as a sports watch, but also as a travel smart watch. Consequently, to the usual metrics and functions, such as altimeter, compass, sunrise / sunset time monitoring, Galileo and much more are added. Standby time here is 168 hours with full functionality, which also refers to the merits.
- an abundance of special applications and opportunities for travel and sports needs;
- very accurate pedometer;
- pleasant design and exceptional wearing comfort;
- works not only with mobile, but also with PC platforms.
- very high price.
Nokia Steel HR 40mm
Smartwatch rating: 4.4
The Nokia Steel HR is a women's smartwatch in a completely different price range. They differ from the bulk of competitors in that they use digital and analog displays at the same time, integrating one into the other to achieve unusual visuals. The bracelet and case are made in the classics and emphasize the severity of the model, allowing smart watches to complement both casual and formal styles.
In addition to taking standard metrics such as sleep, calories and exercise, Nokia Steel HR provides the ability to measure heart rate even in continuous mode. Standby time on one charge can reach 600 hours, and this is also one of the advantages of the watch. The disadvantage lies in the cost: the same Noerden life 2 + have an equally impressive look, but their price is 2.5 times less than that of the model in question.
- monochrome OLED – display under protective glass;
- very stylish visual design;
- 600 hours of battery life;
- possibility of continuous heart rate measurement.
- high price.
Noerden life 2 +
Smartwatch rating: 4.4
Noerden Life 2+ is an attempt to fix the errors in pairing the watch with smartphones and to increase the stability of their work with some applications. Laconism and elegance have not gone anywhere – this is still a beautiful watch, but with a revised visual. The place of the silicone strap is now replaced by a stainless one, and the usual tempered glass of the analog dial has been replaced by a sapphire crystal. Water resistance remains at WR50, which means you can shower and swim in the watch without diving.
In terms of the functional part, the Noerden Life 2+ smart watch has not changed at all: the same capabilities for taking metrics (relative to the Noerden Life model), the same software functionality, but with increased stability of actions. Even the need for charging once every six months remained in place. Only the price and the outward glamor have increased.
- luxurious appearance;
- up to 6 months without recharging;
- increased stability of work with applications;
- a wide range of possible actions.
- the quality of synchronization decreases if you do not pair the watch with the phone for a long time (7-10 days).
Pebble 2 + Heart Rate
Smartwatch rating: 4.3
Women's smart watch with an LCD screen, withstands contact with water from splashes and rain, class WR30. Their case is made of soft plastic, which looks monolithic with a replaceable silicone strap. In general, the watch sits comfortably on the wrist, does not overload the wrist (the official weight is 31.7 grams), but sometimes it tends to slip. The 1.26-inch monochrome display is covered with a tempered glass that is scratch-resistant but not too prone to mechanical shock.
As the name implies, as an additional function to the basic metrics, the Pebble 2 measures heart rate, and in a continuous mode. In a smartphone, through them, you can receive call notifications, set an alarm and control a music player. Poorly, but there is a microphone with which it is convenient to speak on the phone at a distance.
- light weight and ergonomics;
- high degree of screen customization;
- work in standby mode up to 172 hours;
- the presence of a heart rate monitor.
- very few in the official sale – they were discontinued due to the presence of systemic communication problems with smartphones.
KREZ Pro S
Smartwatch rating: 4.2
Unlike Noerden Life 2, the KREZ Pro S smartwatch has a digital display that makes it easy to access many smart functions. Both the case and the strap are made of stainless steel, and the bracelet can be replaced if necessary. The display has shockproof protection, and all the insides of the watch are IP65 waterproof.
With its built-in sensor, the KREZ Pro S can monitor basic vital functions including sleep, calories and physical activity. Also, the bottom has its own timer and stopwatch, and in the smartphone you can additionally control an alarm clock, a player and a camera. In fact, there is only one drawback in the model: the operating time in active mode hardly exceeds 1 day, which is very inconvenient and can scare off a potential buyer.
- acceptable price;
- informative display;
- the ability to control some smartphone functions and monitor vital signs directly on the digital watch screen.
- too short battery life (24 hours).
Noerden Life 2
Smartwatch rating: 4.1
Sophisticated and elegant women's watch Noerden Life 2 represents a compromise between spectacular appearance and smart functionality. They do not have an electronic display, making do with an analog dial with an arrow. This can be interpreted as a deviation from the canon type of smart watch, but there are also advantages to this. For example, they need to be recharged no more than once every six months. The stainless steel case of the model is complemented by a nice silicone strap, which, if desired, can be changed to any other (even metal).
It connects to smartphones Noerden Life 2 only through Bluetooth – interface, and can interact with an alarm clock, camera, player, accepting and rejecting incoming calls. But there are not so many metrics taken: the user will only be able to control the process of sleep, calorie burning, and physical activity.
- very beautiful design;
- acceptable price;
- up to 6 months of battery life;
- the ability to remove the basic metrics of vital activity.
- inconvenience of use with smartphones due to the lack of a display.
