I want to buy a really good smartwatch for my wife for Xmas.
Okay, maybe it's not entirely necessary for it to be a "LADIES" smartwatch, my wife was a Navy diesel mechanic and appreciates good tech. If it's available with some style, so much the better.

I'd LIKE for it to have a built-in camera but it's not totally necessary but making and receiving calls is a must, because she frequently has to dig her damn phone out of the side bag in her wheelchair, and she usually misses the call. If she can just pick up the call on her wrist, that's a very welcome feature.
I'm sure most smartwatches also receive push notifications from text and social media.
That's nice too but the biggie is being able to make and receive calls.

She IS NOT AN iPHONE user, she's Android, so it cannot be an Apple Watch, because in their usual infinite wisdom, the Apple Watch won't jive with anything that isn't Apple, what a surprise.

I've seen a few models that look intriguing but I'd like to know if anyone else has a favorite.

Not to be a smart ass, but have you tried Google for what is available?

Try this search term " Android smartwatch with camera "

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Have not had a watch in years, so no help on the experience and opinion here.

Oh sure, but I wanted people's opinions, like from people I know.
I think I'm going to get her this one:

Samsung Galaxy Watch

A friend on another forum said she got one last year and she loves it. It has a pretty loud speaker so she can make and receive calls, and it does the email, text, calendar and Facebook, too...also has a GPS built in, how nifty is that! So I guess it does Google Maps, too.
Works through WiFi and bluetooth so it pairs with her phone.

Wireless charging through a dock you put on the bedside table.
Sounds perfect.

Looks good. Nice find. Getting the screen guards also? Those Supershieldz; tempered glass, look real good, a hardness rating of 9 ( Mohs Hardness Scale
