Samsung Gear VR ( 2015)
The Gear VR is the best virtual reality gadget you can buy right now, and a great way to jump into the world of VR gaming and entertainment -- just make sure you own a compatible Samsung phone first.
Pebble Time Round ( 20mm, Black with Nero Black Leather)
Pebble's newest round, thin watch takes the Pebble formula and shrinks it to a stylish design, but gives up battery life and some app support in the process.
Samsung Gear S2 ( black)
Samsung's newest smartwatch reinvents itself with a whole new look and feel to create one of the best-designed wrist gadgets around -- but it still lacks the apps to set it above the competition.
Moov Now ( stealth black)
The Moov Now helps beginners interested in working out take a step in the right direction, but you'll need to keep your smartphone handy to use it and overcome some quirks.
Motorola Moto 360 ( 2015)
Improved performance and unique customization options make the Moto 360 a worthy successor to last year's smartwatch, but it has the same limitations as other Android Wear watches on the market.
Huawei Watch ( Black Stainless Steel with Black Stainless Steel Link Band)
The Huawei Watch is one of the best-looking smartwatches out there, but the Android Wear operating system still feels like a work in progress.
Misfit Flash Link ( red)
Misfit's entry-level fitness tracker gets the job done at a supercheap price, but its 'smart button' functions leave a lot to be desired.
Beddit Sleep Monitor Classic ( white)
The Beddit provides more sleep data than your average wrist tracker, but suffers from too many measurement problems to be a practical sleep solution.
Garmin Forerunner 225
Runners interested in tracking both heart-rate and all-day activities can't go wrong with the Forerunner 225.
Sensoria Fitness Smart Sock
While Sensoria makes a case for using smart socks to meticulously track runners' data, these smart socks need to improve on almost every count of design and data presentation to justify their cost.

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.
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 ( silver)
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.
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 Sport 42mm Space Gray Aluminum 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.
Fitbit Surge ( black, large)
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 ( black, large)
Fitbit's Charge HR combines heart rate tracking, sleep tracking and fitness into an affordable, slim band with good battery life. It's a hard combination to beat.
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 ( black)
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.
Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor ( slate, small)
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.

The SmartBand Talk's screen, waterproof design and ability to show your incoming notifications make it a useful piece of tech to wear, even if you're not fussed about keeping track of your activity during the day.
Jawbone Up Move ( red/ ruby rose)
The little Jawbone Up Move is an affordable entry to a great fitness app, though its design leaves something to be desired.
Fitbit Charge ( small, slate)
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.
Xiaomi Mi Band ( black)
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.
Polar M400 GPS Powered Fitness Watch ( black)
The feature-packed and waterproof Polar M400 offers a good set of features for beginners and advanced runners a like. It also provides feedback on your daily activities and sleep.
Netatmo June ( platinum)
For $99, the June is a beautiful, yet unnecessary, way to keep yourself from getting burned by the sun.
Misfit Flash ( frost)
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)
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.
