Apple popularizes the smartwatch: Apple entered the smartwatch market in 2015 with its first smartwatch. However, Apple was not credited with inventing the first smartwatch, as IBM had created the "WatchPad" in 2001, which used the Linux operating system's cut-down version. Another smartwatch named "Pebble" was introduced in 2011, which was the first to pair with smartphones and provide notifications.

Smartwatch manufacturers are continuously adding new features and functions while focusing on lightweight and user-friendly designs. Here's a glimpse of some of the most exciting and attractive watches currently available in the market:

Huawei Watch 4 and Huawei Watch 4 Pro: These watches can monitor glucose levels without drawing blood, a feature that Huawei introduced first, despite other companies working on it for many years. While it doesn't directly measure blood sugar levels, it can monitor various health indicators, including high and low blood sugar levels. However, it cannot replace the need for a device that directly measures blood sugar levels in diabetes patients. Still, it can provide early warnings for hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic episodes.

Apple Watch Ultra: In the list of top smartwatches over the past year, Apple Watch Ultra stands out. Its titanium build, sleek design, and water resistance up to 600 meters set it apart from other smartwatches. The new technology has improved the battery life, allowing it to last up to 36 hours compared to previous models. It is designed for sports enthusiasts and is similar to models like Garmin Fenix 7 or Polar Grit X Pro.

Google Pixel Watch 2: Google's new smartwatch will reportedly use Fitbit Sense 2 technology to detect stress in the body. Fitbit, a subsidiary of Google, will play a key role in implementing this feature. The flagship watch will incorporate this assistant technology to add modern features. While the previous version used various indicators such as daily sun exposure, heart rate, and skin temperature to measure stress levels, this new version is expected to provide alerts based on the user's stress level.

Amazfit Cheetah: The Amazfit Cheetah smartwatch utilizes generative AI technology. This AI assistant is trained using data from the Cheetah app. Large language models are employed to provide users with assistance and guidance on various information and questions. It feels like having a personal training program integrated into the watch. This watch also offers GPS routing features.

Fitbit Ace 4: Towards the end of this year, Fitbit Ace 4 is expected to enter the market. It is specially designed for children, focusing on fitness tracking. The watch will feature parental controls, a child-friendly design, customization options, and a separate Fitbit app. The watch has been designed to withstand the active and playful nature of children.

Citizen Smart Touchscreen Gen 2: This watch is created using IBM's Watson AI engine. Through AI, this watch can determine a user's daily lifestyle, health, and activity levels. It uses machine learning algorithms developed by NASA astronauts to monitor a user's daily routine, energy levels, and recommend when to stay active or take a break.
