18 August 2015
And suitable for any look
It is time to start wearing a watch again. A new smartwatches are hitting the market this year by vendors such as Apple, Sony, Motorola, Pebble, LG and Samsung.
The Apple Watch collection features highly polished stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases. The display is protected by sapphire crystal.
The Sport collection cases are made from lightweight anodized aluminum in silver and space gray.
The Edition collection features eight uniquely elegant expressions of Apple Watch. Each has a watch case crafted from 18-karat goldwww.apple.com
The sports styling makes Sony Smartwatch perfect for a weekend jog, and while the screen is a little dull compared to some of its rivals, the latest Android Wear update means it can pair with wireless headphones for beats on the go.www.sonymobile.com
Moto 360 with its sleek design and eye-catching circular is a thing of beauty. Machined from stainless steel in a choice of black or silver colours for the basic model, with a crown on one side and no ports, sockets or inputs whatsoever, it's the most minimal smartwatch around, and that circular screen is undoubtedly eye-catching.www.motorola.ca
While the original Pebble looked a little cheap thanks to its plastic body, the Steel has an all-metal body. It immediately makes it look like a much more expensive and premium product. More importantly, the Pebble Steel look like a proper watch, albeit a rather retro one, rather than a bit of technology that you strap to your wrist.www.pebble.com
LG Watch Urbane
The Urbane is LG's attempt at a jewelry-like watch. It's an all-metal body with a fully round screen and a bezel.The watch is available in polished steel or a brass/gold color, and bands are available in leather or a matching metal finish.www.lg.com
Samsung Gear S
The Gear S looks like a little smartphone that's been melted around a wristband. It has a huge, curved screen, chromed edges, and even has a little home button below the display. The rubbery-plastic sport-type band it comes with can pop out around the Gear S central unit and be replaced with another band accessory.www.samsung.com
