Apple Watch
REVIEW

Apple Watch

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)
REVIEW

Netatmo June ( platinum)

For $99, the June is a beautiful, yet unnecessary, way to keep yourself from getting burned by the sun.

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.

LG G Watch (white gold)
REVIEW

LG G Watch ( white gold)

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
REVIEW

LifeTrak Zone C410

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.

Samsung Gear 2 (Brown Gold)
REVIEW

Samsung Gear 2 ( Brown Gold)

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.

Withings Pulse Ox (blue)
REVIEW

Withings Pulse Ox ( blue)

A new wristband and new firmware improve the Pulse and make it a true fitness band, but it's not a big leap forward over last year.

Huawei TalkBand B1
REVIEW

Huawei TalkBand B1

While the TalkBand B1 is a valiant first try for Huawei, it could actually use a little more focus. While it might find a niche with some users, most people are likely to prefer dedicated individual devices instead.

Pebble Steel
REVIEW

Pebble Steel

The competition is advancing fast, but the fashionable, functional, and more affordable Pebble Steel's conservative approach puts it at the top of the 2014 smartwatch heap.
