The Smartwatches have taken the wearable industry by storm. They have changed the way people used to think about watches because today, smartwatches do not only tell time but do loads of things like every smartphone.

My top picks are apple watch series 5 and Samsung Galaxy Gear S3. 

List of top 7 watches that support the iPhone. 

  1. Apple series 5
  2. Samsung Gear S3 Frontier
  3. Apple series 3
  4. Fitbit versa 2
  5. Fossil sport
  6. TicWatch E2
  7. Huawei Watch 2 Classic

So you have recently purchased an iPhone and you are looking for the best smartwatch for your iPhone.

Well, you’ll be surprised to know that my top 7 picks are not only the Apple watches, but some of the famous watches like Samsung, Fitbit and a lot more are included in my top picks. 

So if you have a budget, I would recommend buying the Apple watch series 5 watch or Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. 

If you have less budget, I have still got the watches for you. So stay tuned as in this article I am going to share with you the 7 best smartwatches for iPhone 2020.

What Kind of watch should you buy for your iPhone?

This might seem obvious because you’re looking for a smartwatch (not a simple watch). But when you dig deep, you will get to know a lot of other things that smartwatch offers to its users. You will find the smartwatches more compelling when you will look into its features, specifications and advantages that the companies offer. 

You will definitely want to buy the one for you right away when you come to know about built-in GPS features, health metrics, such as tracking the calories you burn during cycling, swimming or doing your favorite squats. The smartwatches can sync with your phone easily and a lot of things to consider in mind before buying the perfect one for you. 

Let me tell you a secret. The perfect watch is not only Apple, but there are a lot of alternatives in my top 7 list.  

Moreover, you will also have to look into the price before making a purchase.

The thinking that higher the price, higher will be the worth does not always work. On the other hand, if we talk about Apple or Samsung or Fitbit products, they are worth the price. 

Moreover, you might be a person that gets attracted to the shape of the watch.

Every Apple watch is rectangular, means, you might not be interested in buying that for you.

Samsung or Huawei, on the other hand, is circular and you may be attracted to those shapes. In the end, it depends on each individual and it may be anything.  

In this blog post, I have listed out everything a smartwatch must-have. So without any further ADO, let’s get into the world of the best smartwatch for iPhone 2020.

#1 Apple series 5

The best Apple smartwatch for iPhone in 2020

There is no doubt in the fact that Apple Watch Series 5 is the most upgraded version of Apple smartwatches and is most suited with your iPhone.

The watch has a lot to offer you and that makes it the number one on the list because it has built-in GPS feature, it is sim proof, it can track your heart rate, means it has a heart and monitoring feature in it. It has an LTE option and supports Apple pay as well.

The watch has an always-on display feature. If I talk about the user experience, it is tremendous and marvellous because people feel easy to use the watch and it is not difficult to learn all the features. 

If I talk about the shape of the watch, it is rectangular. You might love this shape because it looks professional and sporty at the same time. 

If you don’t have any problem with the shape of the watch, this watch is best in terms of features. But, the battery lasts for 18 hours only.

Moreover, if you already have Apple watch series 4, you don’t need to upgrade it to series 5. The 90% of the features are almost the same so there is no chance that you should go for series 5. 

If you want to change you might want to look for a Non-Apple watch, such a Samsung and Fitbit. It is going to be worth it.

#2 Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

The next on the list Samsung Gear S3. Some of you might be wondering why Samsung watches for the iPhone.
I know, I know, you might be thinking the same, but if I tell you its features, how it connects with the iPhone and it has everything you need in a Smartwatch, you will want to buy it right away.

Samsung Gear S3 has a beautiful design (classic design). With the rotational physical bezel, it is easy to navigate for bright or low screen.
The watch has health and safety features. It also has an ECG app and trip detection.
Select lots of watch faces from the several options which, I think, is the most attractive feature of this smartwatch.

It can be the best alternative to Apple series 5 because it is a great competitor in terms of features. The best part of the watch is that it has an ECG tip detection feature which makes it different from the crowd.

Not only the Samsung watch detects the blood pressure, but also SPO2 detection level of the body which makes it better than iPhone 5 because this feature has yet to come in the Apple watches.

The watch can be easily connected with the iPhone. The classical look of the watch will make you look professional as you will get the experience of both the operating systems iOS from your iPhone and Android from your Samsung watch. I would rather prefer buying this watch for my iPhone if I have to buy a Non-Apple watch right now.

If you don’t have any problem buying out of the Apple watch series, and you want a lot of features in one place, this is the only watch you have been looking for.

#3 Apple series 3

Apple watch

Affordable Apple Smartwatch.

If you are looking for the Apple smartwatch, you have less budget and you want most of its features, Apple watch series 4 can be your next purchase.

This watch has slightly fewer features than both of the watches above. And, I am sure you might be getting puzzled right now. 

Wait, don’t worry, when you get deep, you will find that under this price range, you are getting a lot of features because watches under this price range won’t give you this much.

In this watch, you will get a GPS feature and has a storage of 8 GB with offline support. It supports music, playlist, and can track your songs. If I talk about the fitness capability, it has improved a lot from the previous version and the previous version is the Apple series 2. This version is quite faster than the previous one. However, when we connect the watch with cellular, it affects the battery life drastically.  

The look of the watch is classic and you will find that you are not wasting money on this watch. Having a low budget does not mean that you are not going to get the maximum benefit of the smartwatch. This watch has all the essentials you need in a smartwatch.

Features:Pros: Cons:
Gps: yesBetter fitness tracking than the previous oneOnly iPhone compatibility
Swim Proof: yesBetter SiriLess battery
LTE: yes
Payment: yes
Compatibility: ios


If you don’t want to get out of the Apple system and you want to buy their products and you have a less budget, Apple watch series 3 can be the best buying decision. If you have less budget and want almost the same features as compared to the apple watch series 5, this watch is made for you.

#4 Fitbit versa 2

A health and fitness smartwatch

The Fitbit Versa 2 has been the best watch of the Fitbit so far. It is quite slimmer and smaller in size than Apple watches. 

If I talk about its features in terms of fitness, it comes with a lot of fitness benefits. It can do several things for users such as it can track your calories, you can also track your sleep and moreover, it is swim-proof. The watch also supports HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) coaching feature that makes it one of the best fitness watches in the town and supports iPhones.

The only thing that the watch lacks is GPS. The watch does not support GPS. I know some of you might be panicking right now. But wait, are you buying a smartwatch only for GPS? No, right? There are many other functions that you would love about smartwatches and Fitbit Versa 2 is no exception.

Let me tell you the solution, use the GPS of your phone.  

I think, if you don’t have any problem with GPS unavailability, you can also use the GPS feature in your iPhone itself and the rest you already know how amazing the watch is. 

It has a lot of things to offer you. The powerful battery of the watch makes it apart from Apple Watches. It lasts for more than 6 days on a single charge. It has always-on display screen feature. 

The design looks quite sleek, beautiful and classic. You will look professional wearing the watch in your office or the gym. 

This amazing Fitbit Versa 2 fitness tracker supports Alexa and can monitor blood oxygen saturation level in a better way than other watches in this price range. The best thing that I like about this watch is that it supports Spotify, meaning, you can listen to your favourite playlist at any time of the day and anywhere.If you still want the GPS feature in the watch itself you can buy the Fitbit Versa 3 (coming soon) or other Fitbit watches that support GPS such as Fitbit Ionic but let me tell you Fitbit Versa 2 is the best in terms of fitness tracking and iOS connectivity.

Sleep Score: 80Good batteryNo GPS
Swim Proof: up to 50mSleep tracking
Battery: 6+ days
Amazon Alexa: Yes
Connectivity: iOs and Android


If you want a watch with the best battery life of up to 6 days, under the budget, has all the sleeping and health tracking features and, most importantly, if you are a Fitbit fan, Fitbit Versa 2 is made for you.

#5 Fossil sport

Best Fossil watch with health and fitness features

Fossil sport is really an amazing smartwatch for fitness enthusiasts. The watch has a little bit higher price but less than the Apple and Samsung. But, if you are looking for a gym companion, this is just for you. It can help you track your calories even while you’re sleeping and while you run or workout. I think it can be a good purchase if you are looking for something different.

The watch is really light and has a comfortable design that can support water, mean, it is swim proof. Fossil sport can last for two days on a single charge.

The watch is primarily made for fitness lovers as the name suggests Fossil sport means it is made for the people who love sports and working out that includes cardio and other strength training.

The watch comes with several easily exchangeable bands. You can wear the band according to the situation and the occasion you are in. For example, you are going to the gym, you sporty bands will look great and if you are going to the office, professional-looking is for you.

The in Ticwatch stands for “Express” because the company launched two smartwatches at the same time, “Ticwatch S2” and “Tichwatch E2.” The only difference between both of them is design.

If we talk about its design, it’s not good looking, but it’s quite functional and has a lot of features that you would love if we put the design aside.

Last but not least, this one is a powerpack smartwatch and has a lot to offer to its users. The watch comes with great design and features and is certainly worth the price.

When compared with Samsung Gear S3, it has an amazing design and built-in features such as it supports GPS. You can also track your activity levels from the watch.

You don’t have to carry your phone with the watch while working out. You can track, take a call, answer the messages from the watch without the phone and that’s the great part of the watch. 

Moreover, with the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, you can also monitor your heart rate easily. 

The best part of the watch is that the watch has a workout coach. It will help you to guide at every step of the way. If you love working out, you don’t need to plan anything as the watch has everything you need during the workout. This watch will definitely take your fitness level to the next level.

If I talk about the price, the watch is definitely worth the price because you can also track your sleeping pattern from the watch itself. It is compatible with both the IoS and Android devices. 

The watch has its own storage where you can install music, videos and listen to your own playlist while working and that’s pretty amazing right?

The Smartwatch can last for 7 hours if you use it consecutively with the GPS feature. However, if you use it without GPS, it can last for 3 weeks. I Know you are shocked right now because I was astonished to. 

“That is why I bring the best in class products at Wearable Hacks so that I could help you make better decisions”.

What is the BEST Smartwatch For iPhone 2020?

I know you want to buy the best smartwatch for your iPhone. But it depends on various factors. You will have to look into your budget, the features you like the most, and most importantly, for what purpose you want a smartwatch (currently, you are looking for your iPhone, but there are many other things also. Isn’t it?). 

For example, if you have a budget, of course, you would definitely buy Apple series 5 or Samsung Gear S3. 

Or maybe, you still have a budget and you don’t want to buy an apple watch or a Samsung because you want to get the classic Fitbit Versa 2 (Well, that’s a great choice!). Features in Fitbit Versa 2 are pretty amazing such as the battery life. 

Or maybe, you don’t want to buy Fitbit Versa 2 because now your heart is on the amazing Ticwatch E2 as it can track your swimming and a lot of other things as well.  

And if you are a person who likes to buy the design and wants to buy the best watch for the iPhone, you know your answer right now. 

If you don’t have any problem with the design and the look of the watch, but you want the best features from a smartwatch, Ticwatch E2 can be the best buddy. 

If you’re looking for the perfect watch with built-in GPS feature that also supports the payment, has a workout coach within the watch and you love classic and sports watches at the same time, and you may have a less budget, I would say Fitbit Versa 2 or Apple series 3 can be the best buying decision for yourself. 

And, if you want Apple Watch at less price, Apple Watch Series 3 is waiting for you to ring your doorbell and wear it on your wrist. 

 In a nutshell, it depends on you and your priorities. Watches that I have mentioned above are best suited to the iPhone.

You will not face any problem when connecting to your iPhone and you will be able to get its all features even with the ios as well as Android.

How to pick the best one for you?

You have to consider several things to get the best one for you.

If I talk about Apple watches, they are great and have a lot of features but they are only compatible with the iPhone (good for iPhone users only), but cannot be connected to the other Android devices.

Non-Apple watches such as Samsung and Fitbit are compatible with both the IOS and Android devices. and you are likely to get almost every feature that you get in an Apple watch.

In addition to the features, there a lot of things to consider. For example, Is it comfortable? Is it looking amazing? Does the watch fit on your wrist? Maybe your wrist is small or maybe the watch is too small or too large.

So you have to consider those things as well.

If you are a busy professional, you want to buy a watch which looks professional and has all the features that an ideal smartwatch has. 

If you are a fitness enthusiast, you might want to look sporty, then you might want to buy a watch which has a sporty look. 

And, some of you might want a mix of both the looks – you want to be professional in your office and sporty in your gym with the same watch. 

Consider all these factors before buying the best smartwatch for you. 

For more variants, you can also buy a watch which has different straps so that you can show off the numerous designs of your smartwatch to your colleagues.
