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.
Samsung's Gear S2 looks great and uses an innovative spinning bezel for navigation. It can run apps, display notifications from your Android device and track your fitness. Unfortunately, the Gear S2 doesn't work with iPhones.

The Fitbit Charge HR has an optical heart rate tracker and is capable of measuring your heart rate throughout the day, which helps provide more accurate estimates on calorie burn and sleep. It can also track steps, distance and floors climbed, and will notify you of incoming calls.
The Jawbone Up2 is a low-key fitness tracker that can measure steps, calories burned, distance traveled and your sleep at night. The big appeal is in Jawbone's Android and iOS app, which provides personalized coaching and feedback to help you maintain a healthier lifestyle.
