Smartwatches
The Apple Watch has finally arrived. And as well all expected it's as beautiful as it is absurdly expensive. Fortunately, there are some great smart watch options out there beyond the Apple Watch. I'm Donald Bell and this Top 5 I will be counting down the best non Apple smart watches who features a line closest to the Apple Watch. Watch. Starting off at number five, the Moto 360. The first Android wear smart watch to really shake things up with a round screen. Available now for $250, the Moto nails it on. Some high-end style and elegance. Comes with either a black or brushed steel finish with a bunch of classy, leather wristband options. On the down side, the Android Wear OS still needs some work and the battery life taps out at around 20 hours. [MUSIC] At number four, Samsung Gear 2 Neo, priced at $199. This watch can track your heart rate, display phone notifications, it can even change the channel on your TV. For better or worse, it runs Samsung's Tizen OS, which isn't half bad, but don't expect to get the kind of app developer attention that Google and Apple are getting. Also, don't expect it to work with any non Samsung phones, which is a pretty big drawback. Coming in at number three, LG G Watch R. It's $299, so it's on the high end. That said. And looks like a nice, expensive watch. You get a round face like that Moto 360, but with a more attractive, more watch-like design, and longer battery life. The only hitch here is the Android Wear software that plagues the Moto 360. But knowing Google, we'll see a significant update pushed out this year. [NOISE] The newest kid on the block comes in at number two, Pebble Time. Now we haven't officially reviewed this one,. And thing's not out until May, but it looks like a real contender from a company that basically started this whole smartwatch craze. You can get one for as low as $159. It comes with a color e-ink screen and a mature OS, that already has over 6,000 apps available, works with Android and iOS, and it can run a whole week,. From a single charge. The only downside I can see here is that the design looks a little cheap. Which brings us to my number one pick for the best Apple Watch alternative, the Pebble Steel. It may be last year's Pebble, but it's still getting the same updated software as the Pebble Time. And unlike the TIme, you can go out and buy this watch right now. Priced dropped $200 and best of all, it looks a grown up watch. Great batter life, lots of apps, and it doesn't care what smart phone you have. So there you go. Five great smart watches that all cost less than an Apple Watch. For all the latest smart watch news, head over to cnet.com/wearabletech and for more top five like this, head over to top5.cnet.com. I'm Donald Bell, thanks for watching. You know, not watching but watching. [MUSIC]
