10 Best Smartwatches of 2015


Most of the best smartwatches of 2015 you can already buy in stores or online use Google’s Android Wear. There is also the choice of two Apple Watches, one large and one small, in a variety of finishes, but all running the same operating system, watchOS. Then there is also an outlier, but as Microsoft only makes this, that role falls to Kickstarter-funded Pebble, with its growing range of versatile smartwatches.

Picture 2 of 10

Compatible with select iOS and Android devices; marine-grade stainless-steel and Corning Gorilla Glass construction; waterproof up to 5 ATM

The Pebble Steel outclasses its plastic-clad predecessor with a stainless steel frame that surrounds its 1.26-inch e-paper LCD and the silver or matt black casing comes with a leather band in the box. A matching steel band to complete the look costs extra.

So you get all of the usual texts, emails and notifications at a glance for less than most Android Wear watches, but you do miss out on the brilliant colour display that make Android watches shine.

The flip side of the underpowered screen is that the Pebble Steel has much better battery life. It can last at least four days between charges.

It is compatible with both iOS and Android phones. It's got a decent supply of swappable bands for every stylistic situation and has a 5ATM water resistant rating. Pebble's limit of eight installed apps is annoying, though.
