Smartwatches evolved at quite a fast pace since they initially appeared on the market. We have so many that we can choose from at the moment and it seems like 2016 will be a great year for smartwatches. We can talk about so many and mention various options but let us stay focused on the best smartwatches that you can buy this year based on various important predominant facts you can consider.
Best iOS Watch
Obviously, we have to mention the Apple Watch. It will most likely never have a competition. The gadget is getting better and better and although some do not even consider the smartwatch because they do not like Apple, the Apple Watch is quite great, coming in 2 sizes with a superb build quality and a size that is smaller than what many expect. With Apple Watch 2 right around the corner, the Apple Watch still reigns supreme.
Best Android Wear Watch
Here we have to make some comparisons but the Sony SmartWatch 3 is the one that tends to stand out, being an envy even for the rivals. It has GPS connectivity that we rarely see (Moto 360 Sport) and a sport styling that is perfect for those that are active and love running or simply enjoy sports. The only problem is that the screen is dull but you can easily go for the Steel edition that makes the smartphone classy.
Best Budget Smartwatch
Not all people have a lot of money but they do want a smartwatch. Why not? It is a cool gadget. The Asus ZenWatch 2 is perfect for those with a limited budget. There are 2 sizes available, with female and male models. Different strap options can be considered and the smartwatch includes WiFi so you can take advantage of Android Wear features, together with fast charge technology allowing you to get half a charge of battery in just half an hour.
Best Smartwatch For Techies
We have to give this title to the Pebble Time. This is basically the very first of the modern smartwatches that ended up being mainstream and it is still really popular. The Time upgrade is making the watch even better, with a price tag that is affordable, a battery life of 7 days and even compatibility with Android and the iPhone. Hardware and software upgrades made this gadget even better.
The Battery Life King
In this case we need to talk about the Pebble Time Steel. It has a battery that is record breaking for a smartphone. The only problem is that it is thicker than the regular model. That is why it will feel like a regular watch instead of a great tech gadget. The reason why it is thicker is the addition of a larger battery. This leads towards a battery life of 10 days.
Best Smartwatch For Sports
The Garmin Vivoactive is the best smartwatch for sports enthusiasts and should be considered this year. It is a fitness device that offers so many interesting features, together with sports tracking apps and a low price tag. Why not consider it if you are an active person since it gives you access to options for golf, swimming, cycling, running and much more. The only problem is that the design is questionable. Because of this, we should say that you want to consider the Moto 360 Sport if your sport of choice is running. For this activity the Motorola smartwatch is better.
Best Smartwatch For Style
The last category that we want to highlight is dominated by the LG Watch Urbane. It has a gold and a silver model and is really eye catching. The great thing about it is that it looks perfect for those that love traditional watches and in many situations those around you will not even know that you wear a smartwatch. The only problem with it is that it is quite expensive.
