Moreover, the Pro 4G is certified MLT-STD-810G – US military grade rating that ensures it can withstand harsh weather conditions. Although, the Falster 3 and Gen 5 are more stylish and classier smartwatches than the Pro 4G.

    The display on all three devices looks great as AMOLED powers the display of each of these three. Although, the Pro 4G with dual display has a second FSTN LCD display that’s activated when smart features are turned off.
    The 11mm Falster 3 is the slimmest compared to the 12mm Gen 5 and 12.6mm Pro 4G. Moreover, the Falster 3 and Gen 5 with 42mm case size are smaller than the 45mm Pro 4G. Although, this leaves the Pro 4G with a slightly larger display size.

  • Storage

  • The Gen 5 and Falster 3 both come with 8GB onboard storage which is twice what you get with the Pro 4G. This means you can store and stream (Spotify and more) more of your favorites tracks to your watch.

  • Cellular Connectivity

  • The Pro 4G comes with preloaded e-SIM that’s powered by Verizon (US, UK, and Germany)which enables cellular connectivity on this device that allows you to make and receive calls independent of your phone. With the Pro 4G you stay connected to all that matters to you without your phone.

    However, the Gen 5 and Falster 3 with microphone and Bluetooth can also make and receive calls but must be connected to your phone. You can also send replies to messages directly from these two.

  • Fitness Tracking

  • Each of these three is equipped to track your daily activities such as steps, distance and, continuous heart rate tracking. There’s inbuilt GPS on all three smartwatches which enables you to track your routes, distance, location and real-time pace.

    Both Gen 5 and Falster 3 have an inbuilt altimeter that enables these two to track floors climbed and elevation data.
    Google Fit is also your fitness companion on each of these three even though proprietary apps are available. From Google Fit you can manage your fitness goals, and as well get access to other fitness apps on the Play Store such as Cardiogram, Map My Run, Strava and more.

Verdict

No doubt each of these three is an outstanding smartwatch, some of the very best you can buy right now. However, the Pro 4G being a standalone smartwatch is the most comprehensive smartwatch compared to the Gen 5 or Falster 3. Moreover, it has the longest battery life which allows you to go longer form a single charge.

On the other hand, the Gen 5 and Falster 3 and more stylish and classier smartwatches with more storage capacity and a more advanced chip that brings significant improvement in performance.

Our Pick

I like the design of the Gen 5, it’s a very stylish smartwatch and it’s our preferred choice.
