According to PCMag, Apple's smartwatch has gained a lot of attention due to its performance. Its features are similar to the two wearable devices mentioned above.

It can also monitor heart rate, and measure blood saturation levels. It also has a sleep tracking feature. Apart from that, Apple makes use of a 64-bit dual-core processor to enable this smart device.

For its glass display, it uses Ion X, as well as the Always-On Retina LTPO OLED screen. Let's take a look at its pros and cons.


  • Like Fitbit Charge 4, it can measure SpO2

  • It has an altimeter to track real-time elevation

  • It comes with a highly-developed wrist-down display brightness

  • Through its WatchOS7, it could now track sleeping pattern

  • It features a better processor

  • It boasts its third-party apps


  • It is extremely expensive (The price starts at $399).

  • Its battery life only receives slight improvement.

Gadget Battle: Which is the Best Smart Watch at the Moment?

For the final verdict, the three smartwatches have distinct features to one another. While all have health and fitness tracking mechanisms, the Vivo 3 Music seems to be the best when it comes to the music service, which people can use while running or working out.

For the price, they are all expensive, but the Apple Watch Series 6 could appear unaffordable to some users. However, its quality pays for its price.

Now weighing them all, from their specs, pros, and cons, Fitbit Charge 4 seems to be the most affordable while also being the best smartwatch that covers a lot of health features including exercise modes and blood oxygen saturation levels. Apple Watch Series 6 could have been great if it wasn't for its huge price tag.

For those music enthusiasts, you can still buy Vivoactive 3, where you store over 500 songs. Only remember that you will pay for its music separately.
