Sony Smartwatch 3 (lime)
REVIEW

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.

Fitbit Charge (small - slate)
REVIEW

The Fitbit Charge is a fine replacement for the discontinued Fitbit Force, but you're better off waiting for Fitbit's heart-rate-tracking upgrade next year.

At $13, it's really easy to forgive the few flaws the Mi Band has, though getting one will be challenging unless you're in China.

Microsoft Band (small)
REVIEW

Microsoft Band ( small)

Microsoft Band is an ambitious first crack at a smart health wearable that throws in a ton of features and cross-platform support, but it's just not as easy to use or as functional as it should be.

Misfit Flash (onyx)
REVIEW

Misfit Flash ( onyx)

The Misfit Flash is a versatile, easy-to-use and extremely affordable fitness tracker that can be worn swimming, too, and it even kind of works as a watch.

Basis Peak (matte black)
REVIEW

Basis Peak ( matte black)

Despite some smart features, the Basis Peak is a fitness watch that's impressively automatic but too limited and unfinished to feel like a truly great product.

iFit Active (black)
REVIEW

iFit Active ( black)

Despite being accurate, having great battery life and a unique ability to wirelessly sync with some treadmills, the iFit Active is an expensive activity tracker that brings nothing new to the table.

LG G Watch R
REVIEW

LG G Watch R

Although its stark design and beautiful face makes this the first smartwatch you might actually be happy to be seen wearing, its Android Wear software has a long way to go before it's anything more than a passing novelty.

REVIEW

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.

While it's not the perfect replacement for an everyday wristwatch, the iOS and Android-friendly Meta M1 is a simplified smartwatch that gets a lot of things right.

LG G Watch (black titan)
REVIEW

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)
REVIEW

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)
REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

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)
REVIEW

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.
