The Watch Urbane and Moto 360 both have their issues, but are each ahead of the rest of the pack for me. I've been wearing an Android Wear watch since they have been available, replacing the Pebble that was previously on my wrist. Over the past several months I've come to enjoy the ability to...

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...

Alex's favorite Android Wear watches
