Top 10 best smartwatches for women in 2022 according to KP

1. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active

Sam­sung Galaxy Watch Active. Pho­to: market.yandex.ru

The first thing that catch­es your eye about the Sam­sung Galaxy Watch Active is how sleek and mod­ern it looks. The device comes in four col­ors: black, sil­ver, rose gold and green, with match­ing sil­i­cone bands. The 1.1‑inch AMOLED dis­play has a crisp 360x360 res­o­lu­tion, and because the Goril­la Glass case curves slight­ly at the top, the watch looks a bit like an Apple Watch, only with a round­ed bezel.

Sam­sung claims its 230mAh bat­tery will last sev­er­al days on a sin­gle charge. The 1.15 GHz proces­sor is run­ning Tizen OS 4.0, which means the user will get pret­ty fast, respon­sive per­for­mance. And of course, with the help of an accelerom­e­ter, gyro­scope, and activ­i­ty and heart rate can be tracked. In addi­tion, thanks to the water resis­tance to a depth of 50 m, you can track your swim­ming progress. And since the device also sup­ports wire­less charg­ing, there is noth­ing to wor­ry about at all.

Pros and cons

Nice design, per­for­mance
Not the best bat­tery life

Inex­pen­sive alter­na­tives to watch­es from Sam­sung and Apple are both qual­i­fied fit­ness track­ers and smart­watch­es com­pat­i­ble with iOS and Android. By con­nect­ing the Fit­bit Ver­sa to a smart­phone, the user will receive all calls, mes­sages and noti­fi­ca­tions, as well as track things like heart rate, sleep, men­stru­al cycle and activ­i­ty.



The bat­tery lasts about three days on a sin­gle charge, which is excep­tion­al when com­pared to the Apple Watch and dis­ap­point­ing when com­pared to oth­er Fit­bit mod­els. But if you don’t need to charge your watch, you can prob­a­bly nev­er take it off because it’s com­plete­ly water­proof: wear it in the show­er or in the pool, and sleep com­fort­ably with it on.

Pros and cons

Price, good bat­tery life

3. Apple Watch Series 5

It seems that every­one knows about the main fea­ture of the new watch — the always-on Reti­na dis­play. Oth­er­wise, quite ordi­nary smart watch­es can mea­sure heart rate, set up noti­fi­ca­tions about too low and high heart rate, and track dif­fer­ent types of work­outs.

Spe­cial activ­i­ty rings show progress and inspire you to move more, as well as com­pete with friends and com­pare achieve­ments. There is a built-in com­pass and altime­ter, as well as an installed App Store, where you can quick­ly find and down­load appli­ca­tions.

This watch allows you to make calls, text and lis­ten to music, as well as pay for pur­chas­es using Apple Pay. If any­thing, you can always turn to the voice assis­tant — he will find all the infor­ma­tion on the Inter­net, deter­mine the name of the song using Shaz­am, turn on the desired work­out or turn off the lights in the room.

Pros and cons

Great design, very effi­cient

4. MICHAEL KORS Access Bradshaw

Most smart­watch­es are main­ly aimed at techies and fit­ness enthu­si­asts. Their designs, while sleek and func­tion­al, don’t always go well with an evening dress. But Michael Kors Access watch­es keep you con­nect­ed and in style. Their 1.4‑inch dis­play with 320x290 res­o­lu­tion sup­ports the Snap­drag­on 2100 proces­sor, 4 GB of mem­o­ry and a 360 mAh bat­tery.

This mod­el lacks the heart rate mon­i­tor that has become a main­stay in oth­er smart­watch­es, but this trendy item should not be con­fused with a fit­ness track­er. It runs Wear OS 2.0 and the Michael Kors Access app makes it easy to cus­tomize the watch face.

Pros and cons

Styl­ish design, large dis­play
Lack of func­tion­al­i­ty

5. FOSSIL Gen 3 Smartwatch Q Venture

Choos­ing a watch can be an impor­tant deci­sion, espe­cial­ly if you plan to pay a lot of mon­ey for it. But with the Fos­sil Q Ven­ture watch, you can change the style as soon as you get tired of it.

The device allows you to change the watch face with just a few clicks, as well as add new straps. Over­all, the design is quite com­pact and light­weight, with a 42mm round butt and a fixed bezel. The watch charges wire­less­ly via a small mag­net­ic disk attached to the bot­tom of the watch, and a sin­gle charge will last about 24 hours, depend­ing on usage.

Inside, the device is pow­ered by a Snap­drag­on 2100 proces­sor, paired with 512MB of RAM, which isn’t quite as good as the oth­ers on this list, but should still run smooth­ly. The watch does­n’t have a heart rate mon­i­tor, which means it won’t be your best friend for work­outs, and the lack of NFC means you can’t use Android Pay. How­ev­er, the watch tracks activ­i­ty and allows you to view mes­sages and noti­fi­ca­tions.



Pros and cons

Easy to use, nice design

6. Samsung Galaxy Watch 42mm

A beau­ti­ful and ele­gant mod­el of wom­en’s smart watch­es is designed for a thin wrist. The design also did not let us down — a stain­less steel case with a coat­ing, a swiv­el bezel and a hypoal­ler­genic sil­i­cone bracelet. The 1.18-inch touch screen is made using Super AMOLED tech­nol­o­gy. The watch allows you to con­nect to devices on Android and iOS. Inter­faces Blue­tooth, Wi-Fi and NFC will pro­vide the own­er with all the wire­less tech­no joys. The built-in mem­o­ry of 4 GB will allow you to lis­ten to music from the watch dur­ing fit­ness and walks. By the way, the device also has mois­ture pro­tec­tion, thanks to which you can take a show­er in the watch.

Pros and cons

Great looks, great func­tion­al­i­ty
Short run time

7. Garmin Vivomove HR Premium

Wom­en’s smart watch from the famous man­u­fac­tur­er of wear­able elec­tron­ics Garmin. The met­al case goes well with the leather bracelet. Garmin Vivo­move boasts a clas­sic design and an arrow dial. In addi­tion to it, there is also a 0.38-inch OLED screen that dis­plays noti­fi­ca­tions and data from sen­sors. By the way, these wom­en’s smart watch­es can mon­i­tor the stress lev­el of the host­ess. They can work with Android, iOS and Win­dows devices.

Pros and cons

Clas­sic appear­ance that will suc­cess­ful­ly fit into any image, advanced phys­i­ol­o­gy mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem
Small OLED screen, noti­fi­ca­tions may be a prob­lem

8. Amazfit Bip

One of the most afford­able wom­en’s smart­watch­es on the mar­ket is a prod­uct of Xiaomi’s Amaz­fit divi­sion. This watch will appeal to those who lead an active lifestyle, but do not want to over­pay for a brand or unnec­es­sary fea­tures. Indeed, Bip boasts the nec­es­sary func­tion­al­i­ty for smart­watch­es in 2022: GPS, smart­phone noti­fi­ca­tions and a unique trans­flec­tive dis­play. On a sin­gle charge, the watch can work up to 35 days, which will espe­cial­ly appeal to for­get­ful ladies. And yet, Amaz­fit Bip works togeth­er with the con­ve­nient MiFit appli­ca­tion, which is known to many fit­ness bracelet lovers.

Pros and cons

Afford­able price, long bat­tery life
Plas­tic case and no play­er func­tion

9. Huawei TalkBand B3 Classic

The man­u­fac­tur­er him­self calls the Talk­Band B3 a smart bracelet, but it can per­fect­ly ful­fill the role of a smart wom­en’s watch. After all, it is so rem­i­nis­cent of a minia­ture watch — anodized met­al and a leather bracelet only empha­size this sim­i­lar­i­ty. The device is able to track sleep phas­es, mea­sure heart rate, dis­tance trav­eled and cal­cu­late the num­ber of calo­ries burned. All infor­ma­tion is dis­played on an OLED touch screen. In addi­tion, this smart watch for women has a com­plete­ly unique fea­ture — it can work in Blue­tooth head­set mode.

Pros and cons

The appear­ance will please the fair sex, the abil­i­ty to work as a Blue­tooth head­set
Small screen may seem unin­for­ma­tive

10Fitbit Ionic

Spec­tac­u­lar smart wom­en’s watch from the Cal­i­for­nia man­u­fac­tur­er of fit­ness gad­gets. And they can offer the cus­tomer almost all the options of a mod­ern wear­able device. Large touch screen cov­ered with tem­pered glass; sen­sors — accelerom­e­ter, gyro­scope, altime­ter, light sen­sor, built-in heart rate mon­i­tor. All this in a case ready to take show­ers and swims. And Fit­bit Ion­ic can store your music col­lec­tion.

Pros and cons

All mod­ern tech­nolo­gies in a styl­ish case, mois­ture pro­tec­tion
Con­tact­less pay­ments of this mod­el do not work in Rus­sia

How to choose a smart watch

When choos­ing a smart watch for women, you want to see not only a func­tion­al device, but also a styl­ish acces­so­ry. “KP” gives advice to cus­tomers on how to choose a smart watch for a woman.


Of course, as an acces­so­ry, wom­en’s smart­watch­es should have a mod­ern and attrac­tive design. There are two main mate­ri­als that are used in the cas­es of these devices — met­al and plas­tic. Water tight­ness is pre­ferred, thanks to which it is pos­si­ble to per­form. If you have cho­sen a mod­el with a touch screen, then it should be cov­ered with glass with an oleo­pho­bic coat­ing, for bet­ter fin­ger glid­ing on it.

Health tracking and sports features

If you want to mon­i­tor your health, count the num­ber of kilo­me­ters trav­eled and calo­ries burned, then it is bet­ter to pay atten­tion to the mod­els of wom­en’s smart watch­es that can do this. Some of the mod­els have ther­mome­ters and can even take an elec­tro­car­dio­gram of the heart.

Dial or screen

If you are attract­ed to the “clas­sic”, then some man­u­fac­tur­ers are ready to offer smart­watch­es with a clas­sic dial. Usu­al­ly, they have a long run­ning time. But, for exam­ple, you won’t be able to watch the weath­er or lis­ten to music from them. Tech­nolo­gies on the dis­play side. The best on the mar­ket are AMOLED matri­ces, which are installed in the flag­ship watch­es of Sam­sung, Apple and Fit­bit.




Anoth­er use­ful fea­ture for sports and fit­ness enthu­si­asts is GPS. You will not be guid­ed by it, this mod­ule will record the exact track of your work­out or walk. Or, it can mea­sure your run­ning speed.


It is unlike­ly that any of the ladies will want to con­stant­ly think and charge their watch­es, because one smart­phone is enough. There­fore, pay atten­tion to the bat­tery life on a sin­gle charge. For exam­ple, Apple Watch will ask you to “eat” elec­tric­i­ty lit­er­al­ly every day. And record-break­ing mod­els can work up to a month.
