The best stylish smartwatches for women

We tested dozens of smartwatches to see which ones are best for women in terms of style, size, and function.
The 40mm Apple Watch Series 5 is the most stylish, high-tech smartwatch for women with its simple interface and attractive looks.

The first smartwatches were bulky, ugly monstrosities that only the most ardent of tech addicts could stomach wearing every day, but over the past few years, smartwatches have become much more fashionable.

As more and more fashion-forward brands join the latest tech craze, smartwatches for women have started to arrive. Fossil, Skagen, and Kate Spade are getting into the wearable world. Of course, traditional tech companies are taking notice of the trend, too.

Apple was one of the first tech companies to make female-friendly Apple Watch styles, and it remains the only company to have successfully made a smartwatch that’s small enough for women with dainty wrists. Meanwhile, Samsung, LG, Huawei, Motorola, and others have dabbled in making attractive versions of their smartwatches for women.

As a female tech reviewer for the past six years, I’ve tested nearly every smartwatch that has come out to date — no matter how big or manly — so I can confidently say that these are the best smartwatches for women.

Our buying guide of the best smartwatches for women includes all kinds of watches to suit every style, so whether you like gold, silver, or a unique finish; whether you like chunky watches, slim ones, or futuristic styles, we’ve got you covered.

SoCal Palisades Fire escalates, evacuations are ordered

By Amir Vera and Paul Vercammen | CNN

The Los Angeles Fire Department ordered mandatory evacuations Monday as a fire ripped across the hillside of the Pacific Palisades area, threatening multimillion-dollar homes.

“This is due to both potential fire and smoke behavior as well as the pending arrival of large fixed-wind retardant dropping aircraft,” LAFD said in a news release.

The fire began around 10:30 a.m., quickly moving uphill and burning more than 30 acres of brush, LAFD said. It has burned trees in the backyards of homes, according to CNN affiliate KTLA-TV.

Charlie Lyons said he was hiking Monday morning when he noticed the plumes of smoke.

“You go into denial immediately saying, ‘I hope it’s not what I think it is,’” he said, adding that this was the second time in three weeks he’s seen fire in the hills of Palisades. “We’re in a terrible cycle right now.”

His daughter, who is also named Charlie, told CNN she feared for the worst.

“I immediately started packing my stuff, my valuables,” said Charlie Lyons, 22. “My friend last year lost her house in Malibu. You can’t predict what Mother Nature is going to do.”

Fire officials say this is a terrain-driven fire, not wind-driven.

More than 300 personnel from the LAFD and the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to battle the fire by air and ground, KTLA reported.

Helicopters were seen releasing numerous and precise water drops and fire retardants on the flames. Firefighters along an extremely steep ridge below multimillion-dollar homes were also seen using hoses and cutting paths to stop the fire’s progress.

There was no immediate cause given for the fire. Arson investigators were on scene, according to CNN affiliate KCAL-TV.

Diablo 4 leak may have just spoiled a BlizzCon reveal

We may be seeing the resurrection of an iconic franchise soon. A leak in German magazine Game Star may have just spilled the existence of Diablo IV, the latest entry in the dungeon crawler series. The telltale reveal was in an ad for a Diablo art book. It claims the book (which you can pre-order on Amazon) contains “over 500 artworks from Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo III and Diablo IV.” BlizzCon 2019 new Diablo 4 leaks in Germany. If this is true, information about previously leaked Overwatch 2 may be correct. pic.twitter.com/J3cmfciGNt — Naeri x 나에리 (@OverwatchNaeri) October 20, 2019 It’s not much…

Google got wireless charging right on the Pixel 4

Google sort of botched wireless charging on the Pixel 3 last year. Only customers who bought the company’s own Pixel Stand accessory and a very small selection of third-party chargers were able to juice up the Pixel 3 at the fastest possible wireless charging speeds. Everyone else using their existing mats and charging stands were limited to a much slower 5-watt charge. But Google has righted this mistake with the Pixel 4.

According to Mishaal Rahman of XDADevelopers, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL support 11-watt wireless charging. This is confirmed on a page for the device at the Wireless Power Consortium, and has also been further verified through direct testing.

Well, I’ll be damned. Turns out the Pixel 4 supports 11W Qi wireless charging….
