But we here at Android Police have done the legwork for you! Here, for your convenience, is a selection of the very best wearables you can get for your Android phone.

Samsung's watches now support ECG monitoring in 32 more countries

Samsung's Galaxy Watch3 and Watch Active2 both have hardware support for ECG monitoring, but it is taking a long time to show up for everyone, since the feature has to be approved by each country's health agencies.

Samsung's next watch is reportedly ditching Tizen for Android

Samsung's next watch is reportedly ditching Tizen for Android

Samsung stopped making Android smartwatches a while ago, the last one being the Gear Live announced in 2014 — back when Wear OS was called Android Wear.

If you thought the $250 starting price was steep, especially now that it's a year old, then you're in luck as Amazon has the majority of configurations available now for $70 off.

Five apps you should try on your Samsung Galaxy Watch

Five apps you should try on your Samsung Galaxy Watch

Samsung's Galaxy Watches usually pair excellent hardware with refined software, but there still aren't that many third-party applications. Samsung has covered most of the basics with its own apps, and you likely won't do most of the same tasks with your watch as you would with your smartphone, but it can still be difficult to find apps to improve your watch's usability. It doesn't help that the Galaxy Store lumps in watch faces with applications, so scrolling through the top apps mostly amounts to scrolling through various clock styles.
