The first thing you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 is that it runs on Android.

Among other things, it has its own built-in GPS system and its own heart rate monitoring system.

And it’s a lot less expensive than the Apple Watch.

It costs $169.

3. Garmin Forerunner 245 – $189

The Garmin Forerunner 245 is an adventure-focused smartwatch designed to last.

The case is made from fiber-reinforced polymer and the crystal is scratch-resistant.

This watch was designed for people who enjoy spending the weekend in the middle of the woods or at the top of a mountain.

It can take just about anything you can throw at it, and it keeps you updated with useful information -in live time – about your health and the weather condition.

The price is $189.

2. Huawei GT3 – $179

The Huawei Watch GT3 is elegant and sleek, almost like a dress watch.

But don’t let that fool you into thinking it doesn’t have what it takes to go up against the Apple Watch.

It’s a proper smartwatch, which means you can pair with your phone and receive calls and use apps with it.

It also comes in with a 7-day battery life – even under heavy use – and over 100+ workout modes.

It costs $229.

1. Fossil GEN 5E – $149

Fossil is an American watch brand that always comes through with interesting ideas.

In addition to that, it is a proper fitness watch with various features that allow you to keep track on your activity.

And the best part about it is the price.

Starting at $149.
