Jawbone Up2 ( black)
Even with no display, the Jawbone Up2 is an affordable, easy-to-use activity and lifestyle tracker for those who want a little extra coaching in their life.
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
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.
Pricing not available
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.
Fitbit surge ( black, small)
All-day heart-rate tracking is a step in the right direction, but the smart features aren't nearly smart enough and the fitness side of the Surge is too basic to justify the higher price.
Fitbit Charge HR ( plum, small)
Fitbit's Charge HR adds heart-rate tracking to an already solid fitness band at a great price, but all the kinks don't feel fully ironed out yet.
Pivotal Tracker 1
While you won't find any advanced features in it, the affordability of the Pivotal Tracker 1 makes it a low risk tracker for newcomers interested in the wearable market.
Sony Smartwatch 3 ( lime)
Although its ability to use GPS to track your run is handy, its poor screen, uninspiring design and lack of a heart-rate monitor means the SmartWatch 3 doesn't impress over its more luxurious Android Wear competitors.
Samsung Gear VR
The Gear VR Innovator Edition is a cool -- and very promising -- entry ticket for early adopters looking for an affordable taste of virtual reality.
Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor ( slate, large)
While it won't appeal to everyone, the Vivosmart is a solid activity tracker for those individuals who are also interested in receiving basic notifications on their wrist.
