So when it comes to non-Apple alternatives for the best smartwatches, Samsung’s Galaxy watch lineup leads the charge, first and foremost the circular dial on the Galaxy Watch 3 makes for a classic and elegant look, while the physical rotating bezel makes browsing through the screen simpler, besides the dial.


The first thing that comes to mind is the classic design with a rotating bezel.

Without, always-on display users can get 2 days of juice. Though it lacks fast charging support, and it takes almost 2 hours to fully charge. But, with the help of Wireless Powershare on compatible Galaxy smartphones, the watch can also get a quick boost. So, it’s easy to take along the trips without worrying about charging.


Samsung Watch 3 reminds us of the traditional old days when we had physical buttons and rotating bezels which makes this possibly the best Android smartwatch. For Indian users, it is still a bit disappointing due to the lack of ECG and blood pressure monitoring support.

Samsung offered quite impressive performance customization and numerous useful apps. However, missed out on seamless integration of Google services, especially for Android users. 

If you want to go with the looks, design, and unique features with added health & fitness features, then Samsung Watch 3 is the best smartwatch for Android users.
