Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS)
You don't need a cellular smartwatch to have a great smartwatch experience. The Apple Watch Series 4without LTE is our top pick for the best all-around smartwatch because of its sophisticated health-tracking features, including an FDA-cleared electrocardiogram app that will debut on the watch by year's end. The Series 4 can also detect serious falls and alert emergency services if you remain unresponsive following your landing.
The Series 4 delivers excellent fitness-tracking features, a well-stocked App Store and the ability to handle lightweight smartphone tasks, including querying Siri and sending text messages. The Apple Watch offers built-in GPS, a heart rate sensor and an NFC chip for Apple Pay transactions, and it comes in two sizes with multiple band options. You won't find a better smartwatch than this.
On Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you'll find the best deals for the more affordable Series 3, which doesn't have on-the-go electrocardiograms or fall detection but otherwise offers the same excellent suite of fitness-tracking features.

Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music
Garmin's Vivoactive 3 was already a stylish smartwatch with built-in GPS, a heart rate sensor and an NFC chip for mobile payments, courtesy of Garmin Pay. Then, Garmin added onboard music storage and re-released the Vivoactive 3 with a slightly higher price tag, but it's still a bargain compared with the Apple Watch. The Vivoactive 3 has the same emphasis on fitness as its predecessor but looks more like a watch you'd want to wear every day, with a stylish round face.

Best Gifts for Music Lovers
Music fans can be tricky to shop for. Streaming music reduces the need to buy albums, and people who purchase records are always updating their vinyl collections. Our gift guide hopes to solve those dilemmas and aid your holiday shopping.

We've even tested headphones and Bluetooth speakers at a wide range of prices, so you can buy something great even if your budget is tight.Slide 1 of 20
Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds
Apple's AirPods are neat, but they look awkward at best. The sleek, metallic Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds offer a more mature take on the completely-wireless headphones. Even better they stay in your ears, even during strenuous workouts. These earbuds also provide quality sound and clear call quality, making them our favorite in their class.

Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
Yes, most premium-grade headphones sound great, but the Bower & Wilkins PX are pretty smart too. These wireless Bluetooth headphones respond to when you lift a cup off of your ear by pausing, and they start playing music again when you pick them up. Rated for 22 hours of battery life, the PX headphones come in two colors: black on black, and gold on dark blue.

Moog EWSTD019 Etherwave Theremin Standard
Want to embrace your inner experimental musician? The theremin is a wacky and weird instrument that has to be seen and heard to be believed. (Know that woo-woo-woo sound from '50s flying-saucer movies? That's a theremin.) It's operated with zero physical contact; you wave your hands over it, as if you were playing an air guitar that actually worked. While many theremins are sold at cheaper prices, we trust this model from Moog, a titan of the electronic-music industry.
