2. PEBBLE time

As We have mentioned earlier that there might be fitness trackers aswell in this list and here is where we were inclined to choose pebble time, as all other Smartwatches are great but they fall Short when it comes to longevity due to high resolution display and beefier internals but there might be a majority of people who might not need all those in favour of better Battery-life, and here is where pebble time shines with an excellent week’s Battery life on a single charge and So pebble time is one! fitness tracker that we while heartily recommend for those who is always On the Go..!

3. Samsung Gear S2

Samsung has always been known to offer Great products although their Smartwatch watch line up hasn’t seen much of a response but it was untill the launch of Gear s2 it was one of the best Smartwatches of 2016

The Samsung’s own ‘OS Tizen’ running Smartwatch was hugely praised with its unique rotating bezel build,

The Gear s2 has a 1.2″ AMOLED panel with a powerful Samsung’s in-house Exynos 3250 SoC and a great battery life it just gave other Smartwatches a great competition.,

Coming back to the rotating bezel which might sound a little gimmicky at the beginning but when in hand it feels quite functional and is a Clever implementation on a tiny Screen such as a Smartwatch,

Although not everything is good with this Smartwatch as when we take a look at the Software running under the hood you will be disappointed as it doesn’t run Android wear instead is powered by the Companies own Tizen is so some nifty apps like Google maps and other note taking apps like Evernote are not available..! So keep that in mind., But what’s great is Samsung Gear s2 is now available at just under 250$ in a couple of color’s,

For those interested the Specs are as follows.,

4. Huawei Watch

Although Huawei unveiled one of the most Exquisite True Watch like Smartwatch back at ‘MWC 2016’ it took quite a long time for the Company to make the watch its way till the door shelves, However in mid summer Huawei finally launched its Huawei watch.,

For those who wish their Smartwatch to be more of a beauty thing with added Smart features will be happy to know that Huawei watch is for you all the specs remain standard as typical newer Smartwatches but the AMOLED display is just gorgeous and sets it apart from that of its Counterparts,

As per pricing is concerned the beautiful Huawei watch starts at 350$ that’s not much considering the fruity Tech Giants offering but is no where near the aggressive pricing of Pebble time..!

For those interested the Specs are as follows.,

A 1.4″ AMOLED display with a whopping 400x400p resolution, and that’s 286PPI (for those who count)

It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 SoC

5. Apple watch Sport

If it’s not an Apple is not an Apple, Sound’s kinda familiar right, I know, Apple watch isn’t Cheap nor it is the most feature rich Smartwatch on this list but that’s Something that we all are familiar with Apple, as Apple doesn’t make products which have Bevy of gimmicky features without having core functions, but rather Apple makes products which work and work fabulously and So Apple Watch Sport is no exception,

So being an Apple product the Apple watch benefits with Apple’s huge connected ecosystem, as Such you can Navigate with it, get detailed step by step directions, quickly check your notifications without reaching your Smartphone and this Smartwatch will even do a little bit of fitness tracking but this falls short when it comes to endurance but the design is quite good (again being an Apple product)

And so all and all the Apple Watch feels like a great first attempt for the Company as we are quite excited to See what Apple brings to the table next year but fur now Apple watch with fetch you almost 300$ which is on the pricier side of the spectrum but if you do a little bit of a research you can get great deals for the Same.,

The larger 42MM Variant: Specs

A 1.65″ Retina display with 390x312p resolution, resulting in 302PPI

With a 520MHz Apple S1 SoC

Coupled with 512MB RAM

Powering it is a 250mAh Battery

Which runs on Apple’s own ‘watchOS’

The dimensions are as follows,
42 x 35.9 x 10.5MM, and is quite light at 70G

And is as expected an IPX7 Certified dust and Water Resistance
