Smart watches have existed for a few years now, but as they get more and more popular, all sorts of new features and technology have become more available. There are smart watches for children, smart watches that are waterproof, and even smart watches that look pretty fashionable on your wrist.

But what is the best smart watch for women?

Everyone knows about the Apple Watch, and that’s a great option, but if you don’t have an iPhone to sync it to, you aren’t going to use it to its full potential. There are other options out there that look and feel a lot like that one, but can be used with any technology or phone you have.

Given that range, you have a better chance of choosing the best smart watch for yourself. And if you're a woman, these are right up there.
