The 8 Best Smartwatches And Wearables

From LG, to Samsung, to Pebble

The 8 Best Smartwatches And Wearables

8. Samsung Gear Live: The Box

Complete with a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display with an impressive 320 x 320 resolution. Also on deck is a heart-rate monitor, travel charger and Google Now notifications.

7. Pebble Steel: The Best Of Both Worlds

With a black-and white 1.26-inch e-paper LCD screen, this device is compatible with iOS and Android so long as it has Bluetooth 4.0. Water resistant, with a long battery, it actually looks like a watch that sends you text and email alerts. Too bad it only fits 8 apps at a time.

6. Asus Zenwatch: A True Beauty

A beautiful Android Wear device, although it technically doesn’t have the amount of battery life or even the durability of the G Watch R, it has excellent features and is undebatably classic looking.

5. Moto 360: The Original

With a 1.65-inch circular display, this wearable has a stainless steel frame and a premium leather band. More importantly, it was the first to be circular, and it has a fantastic battery life. It will send your SMS, email and smartphone notifications to your wrist, but I’m not too impressed with the laggy processor.

4. Sony Smartwatch 3 Steel: Fitness Made Casual  

Decked out in Android Wear, it has a fantastic (seriously) quad-core processor that's been clocked at 1.2GHz (the same as many smartphones). It also has 512GB of RAM, built-in GPS and is perfect for fitness freaks.

3. Apple Watch: The Main Attraction  

Obviously it has received the most press, but honestly, the battery doesn’t even last a day and it only connects to iPhone 5 or later. Also, it’s so much slower than the iPhone it’s paired with (not impressed by this S1 Apple processor), and there still aren’t a lot of apps for it yet. To be fair though, it is undoubtedly beautiful and you can send SMS, emojis and calls on your wrist.

2. LG G Watch R: Classic Sport

It definitely looks like your classic sport watch, except under the hood it has a Snapdragon 400 processor that speeds along at 1.2GHz. It also has 512GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 410mAh battery (is it me, or does this watch sound like a smartphone?). It also features a barometer, heart-rate monitor and 9-Axis (gyro, accelerometer and compass).

1. LG Watch Urbane: Just Class

Finally here to take G Watch R’s place as #1, released only this week, this wearable has a 1.3-inch P-OLED display with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 512GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 410mAh battery. With the same specs, the main difference is the premium design.
