SMART­WATCH

Manchester Evening News - - DIGITAL LIFE -

Best: Ap­ple Watch Se­ries 5 (From £399 at ap­ple.

com/uk) If you want a smart watch, Ap­ple’s is just the best de­vice on the mar­ket. And though its suc­cess may be dwarfed by the suc­cess of the iPhone, it might sur­prise you that Ap­ple Watch alone is now a big­ger busi­ness for Ap­ple than the iPod ever was. A smash hit and an ex­cel­lent health tracker, as well as a sim­ple de­vice to help you stop us­ing your phone too much. A win­ner.

Honourable men­tion: Withings Move (From £59.95 at withings.com/

uk) Withings has had an odd few years – mak­ing a big noise in per­sonal health track­ing be­fore be­ing bought by Nokia three years ago and ru­inously re­branded as Nokia health. Founder Éric Car­reel bought the com­pany back last year, re-re­branded to Withings and con­tin­ued the good work he started, mak­ing great and sim­ple health track­ing watches that don’t do much else than that, apart from telling the time.
