Editor's Notes

February 01, 2019:

Apple's presence on this list is kind of a no-brainer, as they've driven the market forward at an accelerated pace since the first Apple Watch came out. Companies like Fitbit and Polar have evolved dramatically over the years, and their entries are almost good enough to usurp the crown from Apple, while Samsung's Galaxy Watch also offers some great features.

4. Polar Vantage V

5. Garmin HRM-Swim

6. Moov HR Sweat

7. Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

8. Fitbit Flex 2
