A watch is no longer just a watch. With wearable tech on the rise, watches are really becoming more like mini computers you can wrap around your wrist. That might be the most true when it comes to sports watches—ones that track things like your heart rate, sleep cycle, and activity level (or just stand up to a serious workout). Here are the 10 best ones to get right now. 

1| Timex Ironman Essential 

You can never go wrong with a Timex, especially when you're entering a new kind of territory. This watch is in partnership with Ironman competitions, so it can take a beating. It can be used up to 100 meters underwater, and has a very good nightlight for late-night workouts.

3| Nokia Steel HR Hybrid Smartwatch 

In addition to hear rate and activity tracking, Nokia's smart watch also includes sleep monitoring. It tracks your cycle and depth of sleep, and has a light wakeup call to wake you in the most optimal time.

Garmin—yes, like the original Google Maps—makes an app that really personalizes your fitness goals. Use one of the programmed sports apps to help guide your workout, like yoga, running, or swimming.

5| Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch 

If swimming (or triathlons) is your go-to activity, this water-resistant watch is a great fit. Plus, you can check calls, use Samsung Pay, and get personal coaching through just the single screen.

Apple and Nike are a perfect fitness-tech pairing. There's really nothing you can't do with this—it has all the capabilities you'd want in a smartwatch, but with an emphasis on exercise.

7| Fitbit x Adidas Ionic Watch 

Adidas is getting into the sports watch game, too. This easy-to-use monitor can store and play songs (for those trying to leave their phones at home), and access many of the health and fitness apps you'd use on your phone.

9| Movado Motion Smartwatch

 

For the guy who truly doesn't want to skimp on style, while still getting his health tracking in. Movado's motion smartwatch is about as sneaky smart as it gets.
