5 top smart watches to get you fit


If you think a wristwatch is only there to tell the time, you’re ignoring a whole range of possible features. Whether you’re out for a run, getting to grips with a new bike or working out at home, smart watches are brilliant tools for tracking your progress.

Achieving better wellbeing is about much more than counting steps. Modern smart watches are full of ingenious tech to help you monitor everything from your sleep to your stress levels.

Why wear a simple watch when you can have your own personal trainer in its place? Here are some of the models Currys PC World recommends to get you closer to your health and fitness goals in no time. Ready, set, go!

1. Samsung Galaxy Watch3
The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 is ultra-smart on the inside with a stylish look too. It’s made from stainless steel with a classic leather strap. You can choose bronze, black or silver to suit your own personal style.


The Super AMOLED display looks great and is protected by tough Gorilla Glass so it can handle whatever your workout involves. Plus, you can stay connected by sending messages, making calls and picking up any incoming updates too. And with Samsung Pay you can grab an extra isotonic boost mid-workout without any hassle. You can even get your favourite fitness playlists on Spotify.

Keep an eye on your fitness goals with a built-in step counter and heart rate tracker, and use the sleep-monitoring tech to track your night-time recovery.

2. Huawei Watch GT Pro
The Huawei Watch GT Pro is another solid choice for fitness fans who want to keep that classic watch design. The choice of materials is second-to-none, with a watch face made from sapphire glass and a body in super-tough titanium. That means you can work out the way you want without worrying about your watch. It's built to handle anything!


You can also control the information that’s displayed – from step counts to the weather. And its 2-week battery life means you can head out for as long as you like!

Like variety in your workouts? There are 100 exercise modes, including activities as diverse as frisbee and tug of war! Want to track your sleep or stress levels too? This watch has your total wellbeing covered. 

3. Fitbit Sense
Connect this smart and stylish watch to the Fitbit app to get medical and fitness support right there on your wrist. It’s waterproof too, so you can take it with you for the swimming section of your training.


Want to keep an eye on heart rate and stress levels? The Fitbit Sense tunes into your body and sends you alerts so you know when it’s time to get moving or build in some rest. Its skin sensors tell you your temperature, giving you crucial information to help monitor your exertion and changes to your health.

Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built-in, so you can control your watch just by asking. Keeping healthy has never been smarter!

4. Garmin Venu
Looking for a workout companion on your wrist? The Garmin Venu lets you play workout videos as you follow along. And if you love exercising to music, you can stream or store your favourite tracks.


With GPS functionality, it’s great for outdoorsy types as it can track all kinds of exercise with incredible accuracy, no matter where you end up. Plus it’ll monitor your heart rate, sleep, stress and much more to give you a complete picture of how you're doing.

Smart notifications will alert you to new emails, texts or updates so you can head out without your phone. And, thanks to its AMOLED touchscreen, it's really easy to use. Gorilla Glass and 50 metre water resistance make it robust enough to survive even the most gruelling outdoor winter workouts.

5. Fossil Gen 5E
Another impressive all-rounder! Don’t let the simple but stylish design trick you into thinking there’s anything basic about this watch. You can do everything from answer calls to tracking your heart rate or paying for an energising smoothie.


It’ll keep you up to speed with distance travelled, calories burned and all the info you need to get healthier and stay that way.

If you want to just use it as a watch, there’s a Time-Only mode, giving you plenty of extra battery life out of it.
