Vector Watch Front

A new name in smartwatches, the Vector is a subtle companion device to your smartphone — like the Pebble, it’ll work with Android and iOS — that solves one of the main issues we have with smartwatches; battery life. Using some clever tech and a lightweight OS, the Vector’s battery should last a minimum of 30 days before needing a recharge, putting it way out ahead of the competition.

Huawei Watch

Huawei watch 6

Huawei’s first Android Wear smartwatch is a stunner and it impressed us greatly when we got a chance to try it out. The design’s a definite winner, and is sleek enough to fit both male and female wrists, which makes it unusual in the Android Wear world. We’re still waiting for a release date, but we have high hopes for this one.

That’s all the smartwatches on our list for now, but check back for updates regularly.
