At first glance, the Pebble Steel is indistinguishable from an everyday wristwatch. Its metal casing and the choice of leather or metal bands add to its elegance. With this iteration, the company made some upgrades, creating proper Android and iOS capabilities to update the watch’s software

Apple Watch

Expected price: Rs 22388

Whether you find the Apple Watch the complete example of fashion blending with tech, or a square boxy abomination is down to taste. But for money, it's the best looking smartwatch made to date and, coming in two sizes, is possibly the most unisex as well. The build quality is superb, and the footprint of both the 38mm and 42mm watch is much smaller than you'd expect.

  • Attractive design.
  •  Plenty of third-party apps.
  • Average battery life.
  • Little functionality without connected iPhone.

LG G Watch R

Price: Rs 16743

Smartwatch that looks the most like a traditional timepiece. Unlike the more premium-looking  LG G Watch R, with its classic watch shape and extra physical buttons, the regular LG G looks much more fashion and feminine. It's pretty pricey though.

  • Gorgeous design.
  • Improved battery life.
  • Sharp, vivid screen.  

Motorola Moto 360

Price: Rs 11484

The Moto 360 initially underwhelmed when it was launched last year, with poor battery life and a sub-standard screen cooling the fire of expectation as the first round-faced smartwatch. Motorola has responded, improving its longevity and releasing a host of colour and strap options that bring this device to life.

  • Compatible with any Android device running 4.3 or higher.
  •  Voice recognition needs work. Weak battery life. Display could be sharper. Not waterproof.
  • Motorola's Moto 360 is the best-looking smartwatch you can get right now, and Android Wear works surprisingly well considering how young the OS is.
  • Single-day battery life and lack of waterproofing might deter some.


Sony SmartWatch 3

Price: Rs 15975

An Android Wear latecomer, the Sony SmartWatch 3 is the envy of its rivals for its built-in GPS features, which means you can leave your smartphone at home when you go for a run. The sports styling make it perfect for a weekend jog, and while the screen is a little dull compared to some of its rivals, the latest Android Wear update means it can pair with wireless headphones for beats on the go.
Built-in GPS. Slim, waterproof design.

  • Not many ways to take advantage of GPS. No heart rate monitor. Short battery life. Cumbersome charging port.
  • The Sony SmartWatch 3 brings a greater focus on activity tracking to Android Wear, but there aren't enough apps available to take advantage of it.
