Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is the first smartwatch from Apple. It can run apps, display notifications and track all-day information like steps and calories, and it has a speakerphone for answering calls (if your iPhone is in range). It will only work with the iPhone, though, so Android users should look elsewhere. Even more appealing, the smaller 38mm model recently received a price cut to $299.
