BEST ANDROID WATCH:
SONY SMARTWATCH 3:
The Sony SmartWatch 3 is one big, fascinating and eye catching smart watch. Leaving its competitors fairly behind, this watch takes the advantage of built-in GPS connectivity. It means that you can simply go for your daily morning run without tagging your cell phone along with you.
This latest Android Wear can be matched with wireless headphones for beats. Although, the screen is little dull, the steel edition gives you a touch of gentlemen and wearing it definitely put you among the gentry. The watch is definitely worth a shot for style lovers!
BEST BUDGET-FRIENDLY SMARTWATCH:
You can have dozens of smart watches each better in specification than the previous one. But, the fact that every single device will be deadly on your wallet is not neglect able.
The Ornate Racer is an initial effort from the part of Apple, Google and co. The watch is not much of a show-off but will tell you time and keep you updated with real-time notifications. For those, who just wish to have a decent smart watch this is the best option, although the tech world has advanced much more than this single piece. This watch is not fascinating and astounding at all, but, as the title suggests it is definitely worth your pocket.
BEST iOS TIMEPIECE:
THE APPLE WATCH:
The Apple Watch is considered as a maestro when it comes to the geeky and the best blend of fashion and tech in smart watches. The watch when paired with decent-looking strap does wonders.
The fact that it is available is two different sizes make everyone happy. You can now choose the size which is most feasible for your wrist. The build and the design of the watch are awe-inspiring. The watch has its own flaws too, like; the sports features are very poor in functioning as well as there is not GPS option. Despite this, the Apple Watch is the only device manufactured till today which will leave a smile on your face just by being on your wrist.
BEST DEVICE FOR BATTERY:
PEBBLE TIME STEEL:
The Pebble Time was a huge hit. It was truly a revolutionizing step in the smart watch industry. We were not even fed up rejoicing with this tech wonder when the Steel version of the watch was announced.
The Pebble Time Steel is thicker than its predecessor. This build makes it much more casual and sporty than the heavy, luxurious accessory. The watch has an addition 1mm added to its structure. But, it makes no big difference as there is a larger battery which can run the watch for up to 10 days.
BEST FOR AFFORDABLE STYLE:
L G WATCH URBANE:
The watch in its silver and gold color option is worth teasing and showing-off to others. The watch has much features and appearance of a traditional timepiece.
Urbane has a feminine and an extra classy and fashionable touch to it. The watch also has a 23-karat gold watchcase and handcrafted alligator leather strap. This luxury will cost you extra $1,200. That is the reason we have made this watch am “affordable” style topper.
BEST WATCH FOR TECH FANS:
Twenty four months have passed and still no difference in popularity. Two years and still counting…
Yes! We are talking about the famous original Pebble Time smart watch. The watch has an affordable price tag, a continuous seven-day battery life and both iOS and Android compatibility. The watch has also undergone through updates. Both the software and hardware have been little refreshed. The new additions include the modern Timeline OS and a color e-paper screen.
BEST FOR SPORTS FANS:
Garmin Is the first and the leader device which has made the quintessential fitness dream came true.
The Vivoactive has full notifications on alert all the time. It also offers uncountable number of sports tracking features in very affordable price. It’s an everyday sports wearable. Garmin has perfectly blended fitness features, top notch notifications and different games like running, cycling, swimming, golf etc into one lot.
The ragged design and the worst screen tech make the watch doubtful for public appearances; which is really sad when compared with the striking features.
BEST DISPLAY WATCH:
SAMSUNG GEAR S:
The Samsung Gear S will not be your favorite smart watch as it has lot of flaws. The USP operates without your cell phone using SIM card which is exactly off the mark.
But, the perfect 2-inch AMOLED display is the best you can ever find in smart watch industry today. Gear S runs Samsung’s own OS and is powered by Tizen. There are over 1,000 apps available in a vibrant app store and it also supports GPS connectivity.
BEST OVERALL SMARTWATCH:
SAMSUNG GEAR S2:
This watch excels in all the departments mentioned in above watches, categorically. The Samsung Gear S2 is a complete and spectacular smart watch, which when once seen will left you the itching desire to buy it.
There are extra charges for the cellular version and to completely benefit from the GPS features, but, even the standard version is the cherry on the top. The battery life is not too great but it is certainly better than many other watches available today.
Samsung has definitely outdone itself when it comes to Samsung Gear S2.
