Garmin Forerunner 225

Runners interested in tracking both heart-rate and all-day activities can't go wrong with the Forerunner 225.

Epson Runsense SF-810
REVIEW

Epson Runsense SF-810 ( black)

Long-distance elite athletes will appreciate the accuracy of the GPS and heart-rate, but the high price tag makes it less appealing for everyday runners.

Huawei TalkBand B2
REVIEW

Huawei TalkBand B2 ( silver/white)

Despite its unique two-in-one design -- it's a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset -- the Huawei TalkBand B2 ultimately overpromises and underdelivers on both accounts.

Garmin Vivofit 2
REVIEW

Garmin Vivofit 2 ( white)

The always-on display and long battery life make the Garmin Vivofit 2 an appealing alternative to the Jawbone Up2 and Fitbit Charge.

REVIEW

Pebble Time ( black)

The Pebble Time adds a few key improvements and a color screen compared to previous Pebble watches, but owners of previous Pebble watches may not see a need to upgrade yet.

LG Watch Urbane
REVIEW

LG Watch Urbane

The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.

Jawbone Up3
REVIEW

Jawbone Up3 ( black)

The Up3 is one of the smallest super-slim fitness bands around, but its lack of a display and limited heart rate tracking aren't worth the high price.

Garmin Vivoactive
REVIEW

Garmin Vivoactive ( black)

The ultraslim design and laundry list of features can't overcome the buggy software. Once Garmin fixes these problems, the Vivoactive could be a good product, but until then, there are better options available.

Alcatel OneTouch Watch
REVIEW

Alcatel OneTouch Watch ( black/red)

The Alcatel OneTouch Watch is an affordable and reasonably attractive basic smartwatch, but it doesn't work well enough to justify choosing one over better and increasingly comparably priced alternatives.

Apple Watch 38mm Stainless Steel Case
REVIEW

Apple Watch 38mm Stainless Steel Case ( Black Sport Band)

The Apple Watch is the most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch ever seen, but first-gen shortfalls make it feel more like a fashionable toy than a necessary tool. That may change with a big software update later this year, though.
