Here are our favourites:
Michael Kors Access Grayson
This stainless-steelMichael Kors (£200) smartwatch will work with most Android or Apple phones and gives a stylish take on the smartwatch. The digital crown is used for scrolling through the apps, and of course the watch face can be customised to suit the wearers style that morning, afternoon, or night.
Skagen Hybrid Smartwatch
The Skagen Connected unisex hybrid smartwatch (£99) delivers a more traditional looking circular watch with a hidden fitness tracker so you can ditch the Fitbit. Because it's a hybrid it doesn't need daily or weekly charging and with a range of different styles available, you're sure to find the perfect one for a friend or family.
Fossil Q Gen 3
Smartwatches don't have to be clunky, and this Fossil watch (£149.99) certainly proves that. Able to work with both Android and iPhone the touchscreen watch offers activity tracking, notifications on the go and 24 hours of battery life. Fosil makes a number of different styles too if you think the Fossil Q Gen 3 won't be to their liking.

Fitbit Flex 2 with Tory Burch Fitbit Flex 2 Accessory Pendant

Available in silver or gold a built-in magnet lets your tracker know you're using the pendant and adapts your step tracking accordingly.

Better still there is an LED backlight below the front mirror for using the mirror in the dark.
