Upcoming Smartwatches in 2021
In this article, I have compiled a handpicked list of Smartwatches expected to release in 2021, which you will like to buy for sure.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is the most awaited smartwatch in 2021. Up to now, the company has not commented about its features or release date. However, we have a handful of leaked information about the upcoming flagship from Samsung.
This time we are not expecting a Galaxy Watch Active model. Instead, the company will be launching a classic and standard edition of Galaxy Watch 4 this year. Another significant change from Galaxy Watch 3 is its OS. The new Galaxy Watch 4 would be using the improved version of Wear OS 2.0 instead of Tizen OS.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to have a 1.3 inch AMOLED screen with 360x360px resolution, 45mm bezel diameter, and 1.2 inches thick body size and weighs around 110gms. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 chipset that would definitely boost its battery performance.
In addition to existing features, the Galaxy Watch 4 may come with improved health tracking features such as advanced sleep monitoring and blood pressure. Unfortunately, the most awaited invasive blood sugar monitoring feature is not expected in Galaxy Watch 4.
So far, we have no clue about the launch date or pricing of Galaxy Watch 4. However, you can expect it sometime at the end-2021. We hope that this smartwatch would be an absolute beast.

Apple Watch Series 7
Apple Watch Series 7 is another upcoming smartwatch in 2021. The release date of the Apple Watch Series 7 is not confirmed yet, but we assume that it will be released by September because Apple has launched its smartwatch series in September every year since 2014. We hope that this year also will not be an exception.
According to the recent leak, the Apple Watch Series 7 would have a complete design change with a rugged design and thinner screen. Apple was always blamed for its short battery life, so it is expected that Apple will utilize the newly developed battery technology in this new watch to solve this problem.
Well, these are all unofficial information given by the sources; we will find out about the exact specifications of the upcoming smartwatch only when it is released officially.
The Apple Watch 7 is expected to come with a feature that monitors blood sugar levels non-invasively. If it is true, it would be a very significant step in the healthcare industry.

Garmin Fenix 7
Garmin is one of the most trusted smartwatch brands in the field of wearable technology. For many years, the company has been providing innovative and advanced sports and fitness trackers to people worldwide. At the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022, Garmin may launch a new Fenix smartwatch that would undoubtedly attract huge attention from outdoor enthusiasts and tech geeks.
Like advanced Garmin watches, the Fenix 7 Series also would have many features such as GPS, barometer, temperature sensor, altimeter, and 3D compass. Like Fenix 6, the upcoming model may also feature solar-powered charging.
Garmin recently acquired an emergency monitoring and incident response company called GEOS Worldwide. This indicates that the upcoming watch may have some advanced safety and incident detection features similar to Apple Watches.
Garmin recently introduced the LTE feature to its Forerunner 945 series. So, we are also expecting a Garmin Fenix 7 LTE model. Though, there is no confirmation about this feature yet.
The price of the product is still unknown. However, Garmin usually launches its products at a high price point due to its premium quality. So, the Garmin Fenix 7 is expected to have a price range between $700 and $900.

Is it worth waiting for a newly releasing Smartwatch?
We are sure many of you would be wondering whether it is worth waiting for the new watch or not. If you are a long-time user of smartwatches, including the Apple Watch Series 7 or Galaxy Watch 4, it is probably not worth waiting for. However, if this is your first time buying a smartwatch, then definitely go for an upcoming smartwatch.
To be honest, all the upcoming wearables have incredible features that are hard to ignore. So, it isn’t easy to choose any one of them as a winner. If you own iPhone, then the Apple Watch Series 7 would be the right choice. On the other hand, if you are an Android phone user, then the new Galaxy Watch 4 or Fitbit Charge 5 would be perfect for you.
When you buy a new smartwatch, the most important things are design and battery life. If your current watch is not cutting it for you anymore or if you’re looking to upgrade, we’ve highlighted some of the best upcoming smartwatches in 2021 that will be worth waiting for.
So when deciding which smartwatch or fitness tracker to purchase, think about what features matter most to you: do you need something with built-in GPS?
