What can you buy for $100? A decent pair of kicks’ costs more than that. Still, if that’s your budget for a smartwatch, there’s plenty of options to choose from. If you have $100 to spend on a smartwatch, for the most part we recommend you look at hybrid smartwatches (smartwatches with an analogue watch face and activity tracking sensors) over smartwatches with a digital display.

At least with a hybrid smartwatch, you’ll get a product that’s enjoyable to use, and one that isn’t let down by a slow OS or dated..

Whether you want to be able to take a shower with your smartwatch on or go diving with it on, your ability to do so safely depends on what water resistance rating it has. Watches are given a water resistance classification that is based on what atmospheric pressures they can resist. These are most commonly 30 metres / 3 ATM, 50 metres / 5 ATM, 100 metres / 10 ATM, or 200 metres / 20 ATM. Some watches are also given an IP rating, such as IP68 or IPX7. IP68 devices can be submerged in water up to 1.5m for 30 minutes, while IPX7 devices can be submerged in water up to 1.0m for less than 30 minutes. For a watch to be considered ‘wate..

If you have trouble sleeping sometimes, or you find yourself feeling more tired than you should in the morning, a sleep tracker could help you to understand why. Sleep trackers are fitness trackers.
