Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 comes with numerous watch faces and features. Available in two sizes (41mm) & (45mm) and three colors (Black, Bronze & silver), these have classic designs. The watch has a MIL-STD-810G rating, which means in simple language that it has military-grade durability. But whether this rating is done in-house or by an external agency needs to be checked.
The watch comes with blood oxygen measuring sensors(SPO2) but is not accurate. In some countries, these also come with blood pressure and ECG monitors. There is also an LTE version so you can make and receive calls. You can enable fall detection whereby your near & dear ones will know if you fall and do not respond for a minute. You can also send SOS alerts. There ECG monitor has been approved by the USA and Korea. They also have a blood pressure monitor in their Korean model.
To conclude, it is a perfect looking and rugged watch and very functional too. One point which I dislike is its charging speed. It takes almost 2 hours to charge, but a charged battery lasts up to 1.5 days. It is the best-looking round watch in the market.

It features blood oxygen measuring sensor(SPO2), more accurate than Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, and deserves special mention for a very aptly timed 20-second hand-wash timer. Now it also has a faster processor and generally on the altimeter. Battery life is about 18 hrs is always an issue in an apple watch. Fall detection and emergency features are present in Series 6 too. There ECG monitor has been approved by many countries worldwide.
To conclude, Apple Watch Series 6 is a great watch to own, a trendsetter in square watches though some of the models are not square now. There are a vast no. of apps and health & fitness features in it.

Fitbit Sense is the most advanced Fitbit in the market. They also have a slew of sensors, including stress, blood oxygen levels, temperature, sleep, and FDA-approved ECG. Various countries in Europe also approve the same. Along with fitness, it is becoming more of a wellness watch now. Fitbit provides a new Stress Management score at the beginning of each day. Its SPO2 tracking is possible while sleeping only.
Battery life is the main plus point of Fitbit. With an always-on display and active usage of other apps, it works for more than 48 hrs. If the always-on display is switched off and operates only when needed, the battery life increases to four-plus days.
You cannot store songs on the Sense, so listening to music during the long run isn’t possible.
To conclude, Fitbit Sense is a high-end premium looking watch with accurate GPS and heart rate sensors. SPO2 requires a separate dedicated watch face, and the watch apps need some refining.
