Phil's favorite Android Wear smartwatches

So here we are, just about a year into the first generation of Android Wear smartwatches. I have them all. I've worn them all, some longer than others. And as I've said before it's interesting to see how much better design of the watches became in a very short amount of time, even while the...
Moto 360

Alex's favorite Android Wear watches

For all its flaws, I'm still using Moto's Android Wear watch instead of its more capable competition. I've used a fair few Android Wear watches since the platform first launched almost a year ago. I've gone from the imperfect and frustrating LG G Watch to the functional but slightly clunky G...

Moto 360

Jerry's favorite Android Wear watch

The Moto 360 is still my favorite Android Wear watch. Smart watches are cool. I know they are cool, because people tell me they are cool. You get everything you ever wanted — and a lot of what you never wanted — pushed directly to your wrist so you can lift your arm and look at the screen to see...
Russell smartwatch

Russell's favorite Android Wear watches

I tolerate the Moto 360, but right now my favorite Android Wear watch is none of them. Smartwatches are all the rage right now in the tech nerd sphere, and as cool as it is to see so many people excited about new technology I remain unconvinced. It doesn't matter if we're talking about Pebble,...
