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