Swiss based luxury watch maker TAG Heuer announced earlier this year that it would enter the wearable market with its first ever smartwatch. Not much else was revealed by the company, although we knew this was going to be an expensive entry in the market.

Pebble, one of the first wearable brands, expanded into the round faced smartwatch with the announcement of the Pebble Round back in September.

We like the Huawei Watch, it is one of the best Android Wear smartwatches on the market, not to mention one of the very best looking wearables available. Consumers in the United Kingdom can now get a taste of the Huawei Watch as the device is rolling out in the nation right now.
One of the best things about the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL flagships announced earlier this month was the Continuum software that allows them to be hooked up to a screen and used as a fully functioning PC.

Motorola has launched its new wearables the Moto 360 (2015) and the Moto 360 Sport, and once again the company is vying to offer the smartwatch that most people want. Only the Apple Watch enjoyed more hype than Motorola's original Moto 360, so much is expected from the sequel to what was the round faced wearable of choice for many. For the most part the 360 (2015) and the Sport succeed on building on the original, but they are also hampered by the same pitfalls as all smartwatches.
