How the pricing table works

More accomplished and equipped with an OLED screen that is still so noticeable, the Venu 2 Plus is logically even more recommended than the first Venu for sports users who want to wear an elegant watch. It is indeed made for sports, despite a design and some health measures that make it comparable to more versatile connected watches (Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch). In any case, its good autonomy and wealth of sports functions make it a very good choice for those for whom sport is more important than the rest. This 2 Plus version also stands out for managing phone calls and controlling the smartphone’s voice assistant, making it even more practical.

How the pricing table works

Elegant and versatile, the Huawei Watch GT 3 appeals to casual sports enthusiasts who want to take advantage of the sophistication of a connected watch. However, it suffers from the limitations of HarmonyOS and isn’t quite as successful as an Apple Watch, nor quite at the level of more sporty watches like the Garmin Venu 2.

How the pricing table works

Like the Watch GT 2e and the Watch Fit before it, the Watch GT2 Pro benefits from a solid technical sheet and proves to be a good watch. Unfortunately, it is the user experience itself that limits the watch. Slightly less sporty, but much more fluid, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 46mm is a very relevant alternative if sport is not your priority.

How the pricing table works

The Suunto 9 is definitely a well connected watch. The autonomy is excellent and the heart rate measurements accurate. But it sins with a quirky interface and an application that is perhaps less fluid than the competition. This makes it less relevant than the Polar Vantage V.

How the pricing table works

The Watch GT 2 46mm is a frustrating watch. It clearly offers ideal autonomy – about a week without Always-on – ensures good heart rate measurement in all conditions and benefits from high-quality finishes. Unfortunately, despite its strengths, it integrates an operating system that is far from satisfactory. It is therefore less comfortable than some competitors.

Although smartwatches have more and more sports functions, a real sports watch generally provides more detailed sports analysis. It also offers specific functions, especially for training. Enough to justify the choice of a more or less specialized watch if you exercise regularly and want to make progress.

In addition to renowned manufacturers such as Garmin, Polar, Suunto or Fitbit, new players are also emerging who offer their connected watches in sportier versions. Mostly Chinese manufacturers such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Huami, Mobvoi or Coros, whose watches are improving day by day.

Conversely, the historic sports watch manufacturers have clearly understood the challenge of offering more sexy watches equipped with connected functions. The line between connected watch and sports watch has never been so thin…
