Are you thinking of buying a casual watch? If so, I would recommend that you buy a smartwatch simply because it comes jam-packed with useful features; one of which is the ability to track your heart rate.

There are some people that would need to track their heart rate and it is mainly for healthy purposes. If you want to have that functionality, do read until the end of this article to find out the best smartwatches with accurate heart rate monitors that you can find on the market in 2020.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

If you own an Android device, I highly recommend that you think about getting the Samsung Galaxy Watch. That is because, among all of the smartwatches that are built for the Android ecosystem, Samsung seems to be the best one.

What I love about the Galaxy Watch is that its sensors are pretty accurate. So, whether you want to know how many steps you’ve taken thus far or how fast (or slow) your heart rate is, this smartwatch will definitely not disappoint.


Apple Watch Series 5

If you have an iPhone (which uses a completely different mobile operating system), the Apple Watch Series 5 is a no-brainer.

The watch, just like the aforementioned device, comes with impeccably accurate sensors that will definitely provide accurate data (and results) if need be.

Suunto 3 Fitness

For more active individuals, the Suunto 3 Fitness is a stylish, waterproof smartwatch that is designed for activities without missing a beat. This is a definitely great watch to have as your fitness companion and can be used on both Android and iOS devices.

L8Star Fitness Tracker

Another smartwatch that was built for the more active individual in mind, the L8Star is a glorified smartwatch with really good fitness tracking capabilities.

Aside from tracking your heart rate and steps, this watch also helps you track your sleep quality as well. Plus, the device has a pretty long battery life so you can use it for longer periods of time compared to other smartwatches.

Withings Steel HR Sport

Although this smartwatch is specifically designed a sports watch, it looks stylish enough that you can safely wear it no matter what the occasion is.

It boasts of a pretty impressive heart rate monitor and the good thing is that it has a nice sleep analysis algorithm that truly helps you find your sweet spot when it comes to sleeping.

Fitbit Charge 3

If you are an active person, it is important that you choose a watch that is rugged enough to keep up with you. That being said, the Fitbit Charge 3 fits all of the criteria in terms of usability, functionality, and durability.

This fitness tracker/smartwatch is waterproof and has a relatively long 7-day battery life that ensures that you need not worry too much of it; just move, move, move.


Garmin Forerunner 35

The Garmin Forerunner’s strong suit is its accurate heart rate monitor that tells you what your heart rate is in real-time. That means that every second, it pings your pulse to help you know exactly what your heart rate is.

The Garmin Forerunner 35 also comes with different exercise modes so that you can prime the watch to tell you some important information based on the activity mode that was chosen.
