Even as the smartwatch market continues to grow, the original Pebble remains our favorite option, thanks to its low $99 price, large selection of apps and watch faces, and compatibility with both iOS and Android phones. It's an easy way to get phone notifications, track your fitness, control your music and more.
However, the upcoming Pebble Time watch ($199) will offer a color ePaper display when it launches in May, along with a more intuitive interface. Launching on April 24, the Apple Watch is another device to watch because of its more premium design, fitness features, and support for Siri and Apple Pay.
Although Android Wear still feels fairly limited — it's like Google Now on your wrist — the app selection continues to grow, and there are some solid options. The LG G Watch R has a bright display and comfortable design, while the Moto 360 is the sleekest smartwatch available (albeit one with a short battery life).
Those are just some of the watches we've tried. Looking at everything from design to software to performance, we've tested the hottest smartwatches on the market in order to help you find what suits you best. Here are our top picks.
