Moto 360 2 brings new upgrades over the original model and a huge variety of customization options. All thanks to Moto Maker, geared up and ready for you to build, the perfect smartwatch.
Using tips from other manufacturers, Moto 360 2 offers lots of customization options and it is available in many sizes and versions.
Not all pink here as the Moto 360 2 still features the “flat tyre” design, which makes the Moto 360 2 loose some points for design. Only the 3rd place on our Best Smartwatch top.

2. Best Smartwatch 2015/2016 – Apple Watch

Best Smartwatch 2015 - Official Top 10 apple watch
Apple Watch was unveiled a year ago on the 9th of September 2014 during a press event by Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple Watch comes in three so-called “collections” and two case sizes.
Apple Watch introduced at that time new technologies and concepts such as “digital crown” and “force touch”.
However, there is a downside. It is not compatible with Android OS. Not yet. More than that, Apple Watch has a hard-to-swallow price tag and its operating system, Watch OS, is still raw in same places. Well, it is an infant, when compared to the mature now, Android Wear.
In our Best Smartwatch list, Apple Watch takes the honourable 2nd place.
Specs: Apple S1 , 1.32/1.5 inch – 326ppi, 8GB storage, 512MB Ram, watchOS.
Battery Life: 1 day.
