Features Compared

  • Design

  • Whatever your definition of outstanding design is, it’s quite very clear that each of these three watches look beautiful, classy and very stylish. In fact some of the most stylish smartwatches on the market.

    While the Gen 5 spot a classic design that makes it a better wear for formal outings, the Armani watch 3 spots a sporty design and also lightweight compared to the Axial and Gen 5 which are quite heavy – no thanks to the stainless steel case. As a result, the Armani watch 3 is a more befitting wear for sport activities and a more comfortable wear all day long.

    The Axial with its denim straps (also available in leather and stainless steel) is more casual wear that depicts fashion and style.

  • Fitness Tracking

  • Just like the Gen 5, both the Armani watch 3 and Axial are fitness-focused and come with improved heart rate sensor for more precise and accurate monitoring. Each of these three will track your heart rate, calories, sleep, steps, and more. And the improved Google Fit is an intuitive fitness companion that can help you manage your fitness goals effortlessly.

  • Battery Life

One of the major gains of the 3100 chip is the battery manager features it brings to the new sets of Wear OS watches it powers – thanks to the nano-size co-processor. These enable all three watches to feature battery saver modes that will see any of these three last a little longer above the average 1 day+ battery life.

Which Should You Buy?

All three watches look outstanding in many aspects, fitness tracking, remarkable design, features such as calling and answering calls directly from the device via Bluetooth calling, playing media files anywhere, issue voice command and listen to Google Assistant respond, as well as somewhat impressive battery life.

I think the Gen 5 has the most sophisticated design, even though the other two look stunning as well. Moreover, the Armani watch 3 with aluminum case is lightweight and makes a great wear for sport activities. It all depends on you, you choose which is more stylish to you. As under the hood, it’s almost same features.
