Here they are:

  1. Fossil Gen 5 LTE

  1. Skagen Jorn HR

The Skagen Jorn Hybrid HR is Fossil Group’s latest entry to the hybrid smartwatch space. In appearance, the Skagen Jorn HR hybrid looks like a normal smartwatch, but it is loaded with health and fitness features like exercise tracking, heart rate monitor, and sleep tracking. It can also control your music preference and send alerts. Custom watch faces are made possible by a E-ink display, and the wearable is available in both 38mm and 42mm case sizes, reports AndroidAuthority. Because of its E Ink screen, the watch delivers a longer battery life, which can last for two weeks between charges. The watches are priced at $195 (£189).

  1. Huami Amazfit GTS 2e and GTR 2e

Amazfit unveiled the Amazfit GTR 2e and GTS 2e smartwatches at this year's all-digital CES. Featuring the latest fitness tracking features along with an ultra-thin and fashionable design, the two latest additions to the Amazfit GTS 2 and GTR 2 Family of smartwatches represent the perfect blend of style and health for today's active consumers, while also delivering extra-long battery life and uncompromised elegance.
