    Looking for a new smartwatch this 2021. I am surprised to see the Mi Band 4 here, as I bought mine more than a year ago a d been using it daily as a healthcare professional. Needless to say, I have used it way past its value! Very cheap and does the essentials. Though as you expect, you get less features but hey for $50 aud what do you really expect.

    I bought Apple Watch SE for almost 500 dollars (36999) RS, apple in India is selling its products at a very high price in compare to the products sold in USA

    I still miss Pebble…

  4. DrSarge37 on July 3, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    No Fitbit sense?

  5. Michael Bruchas on July 3, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    I gave up on my FitBit for an AmazFit cheaper model..

  6. Michael McNamara on July 3, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Garmin didnt pay you much?

  7. 21st and 8th on July 3, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Nothing beats the Amazfit T-Rex

  8. jake on July 3, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    I am not a doctor or anything but why would i need sleep tracking or o2 intake. What can i even take away from that info

  9. David Finlay on July 3, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    The Apple Watch is featured as a fitness tracker , but no Garmin Watches at all? This video just lost all credibility on that point alone.

  10. Vito Ciccia Romito on July 3, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Hi, can you recommend / do you know of a smart band that takes continuous heart rate reading and that give you a buzz or alerts you at predeterminate times? Something perhaps that you can program the alarm yourself to alert you when the heart rate rises above a certain threshold? Thanks!!!

  11. W R on July 3, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    I still love my Garmin Instinct, so simple, so useful, so durable. My second favourite is my Samsung Active 2.

  12. Listim Smith on July 3, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    I have some fitness watch for my friends,but i don’t have any.I want to make some line friends!

  13. Evan’s Show on July 3, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    I have the Apple Watch se and I love it honestly great quality and I can do everything with it I don’t really care about always on display so Apple Watch se is great for calls text messages and just whole communication thing I usually use my watch when I’m driving for everything I just hope they update it soon I like to have watch face that can fit over 10 or 20 apps shortcuts in it I have to have few watch faces to fit everything I need I wish there was one that I can fit everything in it

  14. usmannaeem on July 3, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    So here’s the thing. How many of these brands actually have highly experienced biotech engineers directly involved in the RnD, their testing and validation?
    How many are endorsed and admissible in serous heart health analysis. I am skeptical when just an electrical engineer or software programmer is just behind it. This entire industry is more gimmick and fooling you then anything else.

  15. John on July 3, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Why the Mi Band 4 and not Mi Band 5? Great video, though! Thank you!

  16. Ax S on July 3, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Amazfit is trash. I got it and my heart rate is at rest 190 and while working out not detected so f me right?

  17. Google User on July 3, 2021 at 9:24 pm

  18. robert stepien on July 3, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Galaxy watch 3 is counting calories not correct and battery is very very bad

  19. Aga Khan on July 3, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    You should edit the title as the best average consumer smartwatches.

    Or delete the whole video and make a new one including Garmin watches as they are the king of fitness trackers.

  20. Tony on July 3, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    When it comes to any and all fitness trackers/watches. The one common theme is the amount of exercises that are available. Why would someone want more than 20, which I think is about the standard amount of exercise options. From so many comments on sellers sights of any watches lasting a year at best. Is this the reality of fitness trackers and smart watches?

  21. Artemis on July 3, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    I hate Fitbit. Mine always malfunction no matter how well I take care of them. I just want a watch that will track my steps. I don’t need it to do anything fancy.

  22. Ftheod on July 3, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Kalispera from Greece! Nice review! What about Huawei gt2 or gt2e? Would you consider them?

  23. Jona Salas on July 3, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Vane : what about polar and garmin?
    Fitness trackers.

    What makes a watch smart? All watches give you message alert. Thats what everyone cares. Am I wrong?

  24. lenadahling on July 3, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    My Active 2 died yesterday, after 8 months. Samsung was absolutely useless, and tried to tell me it’s not waterproof – how are you supposed to swim then? They’ve also been reducing app compatibility, eliminating some apps and features altogether, and it took a over a year to activate ECG. Why don’t reviewers address these issues – seen on numerous message boards? This is just a piece of garbage, do not buy.

  25. Leonidas Karagiannis on July 3, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Watches for kids and womens

  26. pjoey on July 3, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Music is too loud and distracting.

  27. John1Y on July 3, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Not sure if anyone cares but If budget is what you are looking for check out watchplaystore, cheap and full of functions you’d want on a smartwatch.

  28. Anish Da Pro on July 3, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Now with the mi band 6, I think it is much better than all the fitbits in this list. It comes with about 30 sports, an amazing looking screen for 50 dollars

  29. Ali Alsodany on July 3, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    I mean i’m still rocking my galaxy watch with 4 day battery and that spinning bezel soooo……….

  30. Galaxy_World on July 3, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Nice ty

  31. Lavana Kumar on July 3, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Useful… great vedio!

  32. Sol K on July 3, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    It’s 2021, quite this annoying background music

  33. Quimbly Jones on July 3, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Watching this on me Mi Band…

    Wait no.

  34. Wyoming on July 3, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    You need to work on your manicure ….

  35. Don't Blink on July 3, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Fitbit stops working in 2 years after warranty is over. They immediately send you discount code to buy next watch with pressure to use it in 1 month. Nice business model, throw the watch after battery problems.

  36. Nicole Gomez on July 3, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    All the prices are wrong

  37. Said on July 3, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    is the xiaomi mi band 4c better than the xiaomi band 4

  38. boogie googie on July 3, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    What about the most accurate heart rate and calories burn data watch? I know that the better option for taking those two things would be a chest strap but which watch would give close readings as a chest strap?

  39. ygalion on July 3, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    have galaxy gear watch and xiaomi 5 nfc version with better sleep recording. Well differences are huge, galaxy watch does way better… jsut maybe someone will get this info useful

  40. Carlos Nicolas on July 3, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I loved the low expectations thing, it’s funny realistic and good-hearted, well done, great video overall.

  41. Siddh Mistry on July 3, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    As you shown in the video does this all watches which support spo2 are having real reading or programed value

  42. Nicolas Salazar on July 3, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Surpirsed to see the Xiaomi mi band 4 there…Have had it for over a year and still get 20 days battery life. Paired with a nice stainless steel band and its the best value!

  43. Fellow bacon pro on July 3, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    I bought an apple watch series 6 and my region wasn’t get supported for ECG and Blood Oxygen.
    -sobbing in painful-

  44. DigsArt Realm on July 3, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    You sold me for buying the se. however I won’t be using the link. I’m sorry I do apologize

  45. BBBT on July 3, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I have the Charge 4 and its great! It has great features all while l being super light and sleek looking.

  46. Owen Chua on July 3, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Thanks. I had been looking for a replacement for my ageing Fitbit Ionic

  47. Superior No1 on July 3, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Did she say Apple Best Value!? 😂😭😈

  48. Cris on July 3, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    What bout the huaweii fit watch?

  49. Jenny Maywood, Fit By Me on July 3, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    I’m surprise to see Polar and Garmin were not included.

  50. Anikuh on July 3, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    I love my Galaxy active 2
