Best Smartwatches With Fast Charging Feature

Most smartwatches in the market charge at a standard rate of 5W. However, only a handful carry higher than average charging wattage, which is obvious considering that smartwatches already have tiny cells.

That said, some brands have gone a step ahead to make up for average endurance with quicker juice-up times. Below are some of the best smartwatches with faster than normal charging that you can buy right now.

1. Apple Watch Series 7

Series 7 is the first Apple Watch to get the fast charging feature. It comes with a new USB-C Magnetic fast charging cable that can charge it 33% faster than the previous-gen Series 6.

It can go 0 to 80 in 45 minutes and 0 to 100 in under an hour using an Apple 18W (or higher) wall adapter or a PD charger with comparable power. However, fast charging is unavailable in India, Argentina, and Vietnam.

The smartwatch comes equipped with EDA– an advanced sensor to accurately measure stress levels using sweat, followed by an ECG to check for signs of atrial fibrillation. You also get a skin temperature sensor, built-in GPS, and Google Assistant or Alexa to get reminders, news, and control smart devices.

Being a Fitbit, it offers a daily Stress Management Score, high and low heart rate notifications, a workout route map, and a health metric dashboard.
