Best Android Wear Watch – WTVOX Top 10


Best Android Wear Watch – When the first Android Wear OS came out, the available range of smartwatches was not only very small but also not quite inspiring. The time has passed and now, a couple of years later, we face quite the opposite. Too many watches to choose from and too much technical info to digest before even attempting to buy one.

So, if you are planning to become the proud owner of a smartwatch, the top 10 Android watches we have handpicked for you should help tremendously with your choice.

Moreover, even though some of these watches had been around for a while, they remain some of the best out there when it comes to specs, price, and design.
More than that, you can buy them now at just a fraction of the original prices as their successors are just about to come out.

1. Best Android Wear Watch – Tag Heuer Connected

1. Best Android Wear Watch - Tag Heuer Connected
We have to say that the Tag Heuer Connected watch did not impress much the Android Wear community. The watch has similar specs and features with the lower bracket Android watches, that are priced at just a fifth of its Tag Heuer’s value.

Therefore, if a reasonable cost is a major factor in choosing your future smartwatch, I am sure you are going to find this watch quite expensive for what it does.

However, if the price is not a problem for you, you will see that Tag Heuer has taken an inert device and give it soul, direction and purpose. This watch is designed to look and wear like a Tag. Cost aside, the Tag Connected has to be one of the best looking Android Wear devices we have seen so far.

True, the Tag Heuer Connected watch is an expensive gadget, but it is also the Android Wear device you will love to wear. So, if you dress mostly smart or even smart casual, this is the watch to buy. Doctor, banker, business person, this watch is going to look amazing on your wrist, large, shiny, contrasting with your white shirt.

See it as a digital augmentation of your persona, that can also keep you connected with the online world. A must buy.

2. Best Android Wear Watch – Huawei Watch

Best Android Wear Watch - Huawei Watch
Not many of us expected this but in all fairness, Huawei’s first attempt at mastering the Android Wear OS was a real success. In times when most watch makers were releasing square devices, Huawei stuck with the classic, round shape, a decision that proved later on very smart.

The round shape is the smartwatches standard from a fashion tech point of view this year, and Huawei’s Watch has it all covered. The watch has no “flat tyre” and the bezel is sculpted in detail, making the watch look a little thinner than it is in reality. On top of that, the 2-o’clock location for the crown gives it an extra vibe of chic.

Also, Huawei’s leather strap is a masterpiece. We have tried here many Android Wear watches with different varieties of straps, and Huawei’s is the first watch with a strap that hasn’t failed us. Nice leather with proper stitching, that also looks and feels great on the wrist.

Still, if you do not like leather straps, the Huawei watch can be paired with any 18mm third-party bracelet on the market. Both the frame and body are available in many colours and styles, ranging from $349 to $799 for the gold version.

The only downside we can find is that you have to be careful when placing the watch on the charger. It does not always sit well, and you may come back to a dead smartwatch in the morning.

Go for the gold watch for perfect matching with a gold rose mobile phone like the new Samsung Galaxy S7 or even the gold iPhone. Head-turning combo, for any possible occasion.

3. Best Android Wear Watch – Moto 360 2 (2015)

The original Moto 360 was one of the first three Android Wear watches announced back in 2014. The Moto 360 2015 is a welcomed update to the first Moto, trading the old, tired processor for a new Snapdragon engine, thus improving the overall performance while also increasing the battery life.

In comparison to the original model, the new Moto 360 2 has retained the annoying flat tyre design, a black line at the bottom of the screen, but the rest of the specs are much better.

Put the new Moto 360 2015 next to the first Motorola watch and you can see the subtle changes that turn this design into a smartwatch, rather than last year’s circle on a strap.

What we love the most is that this time, the watch comes in two sizes, 42mm and 46mm, catering for both, male and female buyers. Also, if you are using Moto’s Maker platform, you can choose from hundreds of combinations of frames, straps, finishes and colours and customise this watch to match your taste and style.

Fresh and modern, Moto 360 2 is a must-have watch for those who want a pure Android Wear experience but also the option to customise it as they like.

4. Best Android Wear Watch – Fossil Q Founder

Best Android Wear Watch - Fossil Q Founder display
Called the Q Founder, this watch is the first smart timepiece from the fashion house Fossil. The watch is available with either leather or steel bracelets, but for the metallic one, you will have to fork out of your wallet $20 more. Another round case styled watch, again with the “flat tyre” design at the bottom of the screen.

In fact, there is a real reason for the flat tyre to be there as it accommodates the ambient light sensor that let’s the watch increase or decrease the brightness of the screen and save battery life accordingly.

Not a bad smartwatch at all, in fact, the designers put a lot of work and attention to details, and it shows from the very first moment you put it on your wrist. The Q Founder is also one of the first watches powered by an Intel Atom processor, although there is not a much visible improvement, at least from a user point of view.

On the downside, the thorn in the Q Founder’s palm is the massive charging “pillow” that’s going to make you think twice before you take this watch with you travelling and the luggage space is a luxury you cannot afford to waste.

Good looking, solid specs, this is a watch that looks great combined with your Polo and Hilfiger outfits. Casual, smart casual, it works like a charm.

5. Best Android Wear Watch – Casio WSD-F10

A more recent watch is the Casio’s Smart Outdoor Watch. The device landed at CES this year and it aims at the outdoor and the fitness enthusiasts, thanks to its waterproof capabilities of up to 50m, and its shockproof rating. Certified to US military standards (MIL-STD0810), this watch is for the hardcore ones.

Specs wise, the Casio smartwatch comes with some new and exciting features. It has a 1.32-inch LCD touchscreen and a second monochrome display that can be used instead of the colour screen. Using the black and white screen instead of the main screen helps with preserving the battery life for almost a month.

However, there is a problem here. If fashion is important to you, and you want a watch that you can match with various outfits during the day, evening, this watch will not help much.

In fact, I do not think you will be able to get it under your blazer, let alone your shirt. It is not uncomfortable, in fact, it is much lighter than most smartwatches we have tried. However, the chunky rubber strap, designed to provide you with a secure fit is the one making the watch bulky.

Without a doubt, this is a great watch for the active ones that are not that keen on wearing suits or smart outfits. The watch looks good, performs well, and lasts quite a long time on a single charge.

6. Best Android Wear Watch – ASUS ZenWatch 2

asus-zenwatch 2-4
The original ASUS ZenWatch held the best Android Wear watch title for quite some time thus seeing the company’s new device brought a lot of excitement and hype. While looking quite similar to the old model, the new watch from Asus brings a somewhat different philosophy.

ASUS went for the low-end pricing market with its ZenWatch 2. However, the solid specs and the high build quality makes this watch feel premium rather than low end.

Unlike most current Android Wear devices, the ZenWatch 2 comes with a square display, which might turn some folks away right from the start. However, if you can get past this inconvenient, you are going to find this device to be a quite a powerhouse.

ASUS ZenWatch 2 comes with an AMOLED display that helps you save a lot of its precious battery life. There is also a new, fast, Snapdragon 400 CPU coupled with excellent onboard storage for your apps, and a large 400 mAh battery.
With its new release, Asus lets you choose between the larger 1.63-inch or the 1.45-inch models, if it happens that you have a thin wrist. Still, you have to keep in mind that the smaller variant comes with a less powerful battery as well.

A lovely watch, for the ones searching for power and low cost. You can purchase the ASUS ZenWatch 2 from Amazon starting at only $129.99.

7. Best Android Wear Watch – Sony SmartWatch 3

This is Sony’s third crack at making the perfect smartwatch. The watch can be coupled with either a rubber sports strap in multiple colour choices or a sleek stainless steel strap, that we think it looks great along the 1.6-inch 320 x 320 pixel LCD display.

The screen is not at the high end of the screens, but this is not an accident. Sony put the accent on the battery life, and a low power screen lets you gain two days of constant use this time.

The Sony SmartWatch 3 is also the first Android Wear watch with built-in GPS, making it ideal for tracking your running sessions, cycle rides, and it can even tap into your golfing apps.

A little outdated now, and yet, the 3rd smartwatch from Sony remains a relevant and powerful candidate to the smartwatches market. If Sony is the company you want on your wrist, there could not be a better time to buy one.

It seems like the new Sony SmartWatch 4 might not make an appearance this year so there is no reason to wait, especially that the price is now at its lowest point ever.

8. Best Android Wear Watch – LG Watch Urbane

If you ever wonder if there is a smartwatch out there that you could confuse with a classic, mechanical watch, then the LG Watch Urbane is the one.

It has a stylish design, complemented by a decent leather band and whether you choose the gold or the silver version, you are going to enjoy it very much. The watch comes with a 1.3-inch P-OLED circular display which is bright, crisp, and colourful.

It is a wonderful, versatile smartwatch which you can wear at the University, in the evening when you go out for a drink with your colleagues or even for a date. More than that, the LG Watch Urbane is a good buy right now, considering its less than $200 price, if ordered from Amazon.

9. Best Android Wear Watch – Moto 360 Sport

Moto_360_(2nd gen)
If you are a fan of the second-generation Moto 360, but you want that extra bit, from a fitness tracking point of view, you have to check out its relative, the Moto 360 Sport. It has similar internal specs, to which the company added GPS tracking and continuous HR monitoring capabilities

One of the killer features I would like to mention here is the AnyLight Hybrid screen that makes the 360 Sport stats easy to read, even in direct sunlight. More than that, the watch is covered by the IP67 rating, for dust and water resistance.

As a downside, the 360 Sport has a battery that doesn’t last more than 3 hours if you leave your GPS turned on. However, I tend to use the GPS for running only, and I have never needed to run for more than one or even two hours non-stop.

Just bear in mind when you order it that this is not a Garmin fitness watch designed for marathons, but more of a city watch, with personality, powerful features and a nice look.

The Moto 360 Sport starts at $299.99 from Motorola’s website, but you can find it a little bit cheaper on Amazon.

10. Best Android Wear Watch – LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition
If at a first look, this watch resembles a lot with the first Watch Urbane, in reality, this new device from the company has a winning ace, up its sleeve: The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition is the first smartwatch with a cellular connection, running on Android Wear.

Also, the display on the 2nd Edition of this LG device has been upgraded to a 1.38-inch full circle P-OLED supporting a 480 x 480 resolution and 348ppi.

More than that, this is one of the very few smartwatches featuring a battery above the 500mAh mark. Juicing out almost 570mAh, this watch can last up to 4 days on a single charge, with the all the functions turned on.

A very modern watch, for daily use, on multiple outfit combinations, and circumstances. The Urbane 2 it is now available through AT&T, Verizon and of course, Amazon at a price lower than expected. Order yours now.
