The top 10 alternatives to the Apple Watch

1. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active

While Apple might have the most popular smartwatch with the Apple Watch Series 5, not everyone wants to join that ecosystem. Here are some other great options.

Likely Samsung's best sport smartwatch option, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active offers two days of battery, and is half the price of the Apple Watch 4. The smartwatch is still stylish, however, making it a good option for work and the gym. Running on Tizen OS 4.0, the watch has a heart rate sensor, GPS, and LTE option. The watch is also waterproof, which is a big perk for swimmers.
