Android’s Best Smartwatches Reviewed: Our Favourite is #4

The smartwatch category is still pullulating, there is already a wide variety of options on the market that can deliver smartphone notifications, fitness features, apps and more to your wrist. All of these devices promise to let you leave your phone in your pocket more often.

LG Watch Urbane

The Urbane is the first watch to run Android 5.1.1, which definitely adds a new spin to the software experience, though it doesn’t start from scratch.

Round is still right for a smartwatch.

-Swiping scheme still a little convoluted

ASUS ZenWatch

The ZenWatch scores some serious points for customizability. The ZenWatch sports a square face with rounded corners, and a body that should inspire the most stern smartwatch non-believer.

-Preloaded App
-Mediocre battery life

Moto 360

The Moto 360 is the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch, and for good reason. It’s also the most compelling in terms of design. It looks less like a display strapped to your wrist, and more like a high-tech accessory that you’re going to want to check out.

Sony SmartWatch 3

Sony’s watch faces aren’t all that inspiring, and we really have no desire to use Sony’s closed activity tracker. But if you’re a runner considering a smartwatch, the SmartWatch 3 should be your first pick.
