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.
Netatmo June ( platinum)
For $99, the June is a beautiful, yet unnecessary, way to keep yourself from getting burned by the sun.
Motorola Moto 360 ( Light Stainless Steel Case + Gray Hoween Leather Band)
The Moto 360 tries to be the ultimate smartwatch, but it just ends up being a better-looking Android Wear watch with some notable limitations.
LG G Watch ( black titan)
The LG G Watch attempts to bring you the future on your wrist, but with its generic design, unimpressive battery life, and unpolished early software, you're better off waiting to see what else is around the bend.
Samsung Gear Live ( black)
Samsung's new smartwatch feels like its other Gears, but injected with Google's new Android Wear software. The makeover means better Google phone connectedness, but it's not a killer smartwatch.
LifeTrak Zone C410 ( white)
The LifeTrak Zone C410 may not be the most stylish activity tracker around, but it's priced cheaper, and offers more features, than many of its competitors. It gets the job done with accurate tracking, long battery life, and a waterproof design.
LG Lifeband Touch
The Lifeband Touch, LG's crack at a smart fitness band, has moments of promise, but just doesn't add up to an experience that's useful or fun compared with the competition.
Samsung Gear 2 Neo ( Black)
The Gear 2 Neo offers the best balance of features and price among Samsung's three 2014 smartwatches, but it falls short of must-have status.
Samsung Gear 2 ( Silver/Black)
Samsung has made strides with the Gear 2, but this smartwatch is on its own island with few apps and Samsung-only device compatibility. At this point, you're better off waiting for Android Wear.
Martian Notifier ( black)
If you’re looking for a way to get subtle phone alerts on your wrist without busting the budget, it’s hard to top the Martian Notifier.
