Smart Watches for Men and Ladies (That Are Under £1,000)

We’re to reveal the best smart watches under £1,000 for both men and women, after previous we’ve shared our curated list of the best smart watches under £200.

Unisex watches are quickly becoming a trend for the younger generation’s preferred fashion style, so are unisex smart watches. We’ve included watches for men, ladies, and unisex in our reviews. 

What is a Smart Watch?

A smart watch is a modern gadget and a wearable computing device. On the appearance, the smart watch resembles a wristwatch. Besides the very basic function for telling time through the watch dial, the smart watch is capable of tracking health information and activities.

Smart watches must be complemented with mobile smart phones. The smart watch is somewhat an extension of functionality to the wearer’s smartphone. To enable full functionality, the smart watch must connect through Bluetooth and be within wireless range of an Android, iOS smartphone or tablet.

The wearer’s interactions are usually done through the smart watch’s colourfully designed interface or screen.

The benefits of wearing a smart watch at least include the following:

  • A device to track fitness and exercise progress
  • Makes it easier for you to find your mobile/smart phone and keys (should you have mis-placed them somewhere)
  • Enables you to make or receive phone calls instantly
  • Lets you have access to notifications instantly
  • Allows you to stay connected even when you're out doing your fitness exercises or other outdoor activities
  • Enables playing of music
