Shopping for Mother's Day (which is May 8, in case you needed a reminder) can be a challenge because how do you possibly quantify your appreciation for all that she does through one gift? Still, if you're on the hunt for something, perhaps you go for something that's fancy and functional like a smartwatch (rather than take a gamble on stuff she might like). From now through May 8, Best Buy is slashing up to $50 off best-selling Fitbit, Garmin and Samsung styles (yes, even our favorite Fitbit Versa 2). Trust us—she'll get so much more use out of one of these babies than your go-to bouquet delivery (no shade!)—because most of them have health and fitness tracking features that will keep up with her daily. Here are five smartwatches she'll love.

This baby will come in handy for everything from touchless pay to finding answers to all her questions (yes, it's equipped with Amazon Alexa). If she decides to go for a walk or a jog, she'll love monitoring her steps, distance, heart rate and calories burned. It also has a six-day battery life and a touchscreen monitor that's easy to read and navigate.
If you don't think health and fitness features are enough to impress her, go for the Garmin Lily Smartwatch. She'll be obsessed with the gorgeous light sand color and gold hardware details, plus it's small and lightweight, fitting more like a bracelet than a clunky device. And on top of sleep, breathing and safety tracking functions, she can also connect it to her smartphone to receive email and texts while she's out and about.
From measuring oxygen levels to performing an EKG, this watch will easily become one of the most valuable gifts she's ever gotten. Plus, it's just lovely to look at, thanks to its gold body and round touchscreen.
Active moms will get a kick out of this tracker designed to maximize workout sessions through real-time pace, distance and heart tracking (it even buzzes when her heart rate gets too high). Even more, she'll love its sleek, compact frame and equally sleek band.
If she prefers to get her exercise in at the pool, look no further. This smartwatch is resistant in up to 164' of water and tracks her movement while she's in it. She can also set it up to get text, call and calendar alerts.
