Best Smart Watches To Buy This Year

Smart watches are so popular right now and I can clearly see why. They are incredibly useful and super easy to use too! If you want to buy a smart watch for you phone I recommend the following:


 Samsung Gear 2 Neo

At a more reasonable price tag, the Samsung Gear 2 Neo is a decent smartwatch with plenty of features. However, the need for a specific Samsung companion device and a limited amount of downloadable apps detract somewhat.


LG G Watch

The LG G Watch is the best smartwatch I’ve seen so far, partly due to the affordable price tag and the excellent, albeit not flawless, Android Wear system. You will need a device with Android 4.3 or later, though. The design of the G Watch doesn’t wow so check out the Gear Live and the upcoming Moto 360.


Apple Watch

I can’t help but think that Apple has tried to do too much with this first generation Apple Watch. There are so many ways of interacting with it and so many different features and elements to get used to that the learning curve is surprisingly steep. It takes a lot of getting used to, and at times it feels counter-intuitive, something we’re not use to with Apple devices. (Source:


Sony SmartWatch 3

The SmartWatch 3’s biggest strength is its built-in GPS, but you’ll still need a smartphone for driving directions. It’s also great to see a standard USB charging port. The transflective screen is a good idea, but in practice battery life is no better than other smartwatches with better-looking screens. Ultimately, unless you’re on a fixed budget, the G Watch R is the better choice. If you can’t afford that, wait a few months: the price is bound to drop.


Huawei Watch

Although it’s pricy, the Huawei Watch is best Android Wear smartwatch on the market with its absolutely stunning design and exquisite build quality. There’s still work to be done though as the watch lacks GPS, the heart rate monitor doesn’t work very well and the charger is bit fiddly.
