Pebble is arguably responsible for helping to jumpstart the modern wearable movement. They raised over $10 million through their Kickstarter campaign in 2012, and since then pretty much every major tech company has hopped on the bandwagon, including Apple, LG, Samsung, Motorola and Sony. Even more traditional watch makers such as Fossil and Tag Heuer have made their own attempts at blending their classic designs with our connected lifestyles. Choosing the best smartwatch, however, is no easy task. There’s a plethora of options, and frankly, they are not powerful or versatile enough at this time to make any of them a 'must-buy' for most people - especially at the current prices.
If you are set on buying a smartwatch, however, there are a handful of things to consider - compatibility and key features being chief among them. With that in mind, the following are our picks for you - whether you are an iPhone user, commited to Android, looking for something that is fitness centric to track regular workouts or exercise, or if you're into into luxury watches and also happen to be curious about the current smartwatch trend.
