Top three smartwatches you can buy in 2016

It’s been four years since the Pebble Smartwatch released in 2012, and people began flocking to the internet to be the first adopters of the technology. We can now truly say that we’re in the experimental stage of smartwatches, where the market is at unease with distributors making strange and magnificent designs to grab their market share. Some however stand above the rest, and today we’ll be looking at the top three of these smartwatches.

The Pebble Time Round:

Going back to the very roots of the early smartwatch days, Pebble has been the underdog. While being a small unknown company at first they have managed to build a large following and continue to work on their products.

From the original pebble, pebble steel and now the Pebble Time. The Pebble Time Round is their newest addition to their family. It runs their own bespoke operating system, known as Pebble OS, that supports compatibility with both Android and IOS devices.

On Pebbles website they boast:

“The most striking thing about it is that it’s the thinnest smartwatch ever–not just from Pebble, but from anybody.”

The Apple Watch sports an array of beautiful designs and bands and you can pick up models ranging from around £290 to models hitting the £13,500.00 mark.

The Apple watch’s OS is not compatible with devices outside of the IOS ecosystem but is compatible with iPhones running IOS 8 or higher.

The Moto360 2nd Gen:

The Moto360 2nd gen is the successor to the Moto360 that was released last year. When it’s predecessor was released it was one of the only Android Wear devices out there with a circular display. The device sold well with many seeing it as the leading Android Wear smartwatch. Now it’s successor has been released it holds many of the same features and looks as the one before it.

The Moto360 runs Android wear and is therefore compatible with most Android devices and phones. It has an inbuilt WiFi antenna so you can access the internet when you’re away from your phone and has an array of options, including their sport option that has inbuilt GPS.
