Most Expensive Smartwatches In The World
1. Kairos Hybrid Watch
So we first would like to start our list with an award-winning design smartwatch. The watch has a dual display, a transparent digital display as well a hidden analog display.
When you receive notifications and messages you see them on the transparent digital display. But when you don’t have any message or task on the screen you see the analog watch with mechanical moving parts. So it’s kind of a mechanical hybrid smartwatch that you rarely get to see.
It gets connected to your Android and iPhone and shows you notifications you receive on your phone on its transparent digital display. And since it also supports health tracking it also works as a fitness tracker and shows you your vital health stats.
Along with basic smart features, it also has a feature that you generally would not find on many other smartwatches, which is using it as a remote control for your smartphones. You can use it to control your music playback or shooting selfies from the phone without even touching it.
The watch is also built with high durability as it is waterproof and can withstand rough usage. Also, it feels luxurious to wear and is available in three different colors, which overall provides this watch a rich look. It cost around $2500 and is one of the most expensive hybrid watches out there.
2. Garmin MARQ Driver

It runs on Google’s operating system called Wear OS, which was formerly known as Android Wear 2.0. And, since Wear OS is compatible with both Android and iOS platforms, you can easily use this smartwatch with both Android smartphones and iPhones.
Apart from luxury, the watch also offers decent battery life. Since the watch does not have a heart rate monitor or GPS sensor the battery will easily last a full day. That’s because these sensors consume the most amount of battery on a smartwatch.
Since it does not have fitness tracking ability it is not made for fitness enthusiasts. The watch is mainly built for travelers who love to visit different countries because it has a dedicated city guide app. This helps you roam in any city around the world by showing you maps, places of interest, right on your wrist.
Also, it shows the weather forecasts for different time zones so it will be easier for you to plan your day accordingly in a new city. Overall, if you want to travel in style then this expensive smartwatch is what you should consider.
