The Walkabout Watch 2 features settings for nearly every physical activity you can think of.

The waterproof smartwatch includes a variety of features, including the VeryFit app, which tracks data for analysis in its cloud platform. You can log in via desktop or using the app itself, which makes tracking and sharing data with loved ones and physicians simple.

Opening and turning the product on is simple, and if you have used an Apple Watch before you will immediately recognize the responsive touch screen and dial analog controller.

Walkabout’s four medical-grade health sensors and additional motion sensor enable comprehensive monitoring 24/7. Sleep tracking, mood, and exercise data is collected and analyzed. Activities can be selected to give Walkabout better contextual data. Even activities such as yoga and cycling are accounted for.

All the usual customizations are present, including home screen layout, wallpaper image, and idle screen.

The Walkabout Watch 2 is a worthy successor to the original, adding new health monitoring features and extending battery life without increasing cost.

Walkabout Watch 2 Review
The Walkabout Watch 2 features multiple color and wrist band options.

The Walkabout Watch 2 is one of the best smartwatch values if your primary focus is on health monitoring. Buying an athletic watch band separately is a small annoyance, but the overall price to features ratio make up for it.
