The market is still very young for smart watches, and competitors are all currently around the same level. With some, it seems that in the race to hit the market first some designs have been rushed, but rolling firmware and software updates are aplenty.
So if you love beating the crowd and adopting new technology early, then here is a list of 5 of the best smart watches currently available.
5. ConnecteDevice Cookoo Smartwatch
This sleek and sporty black little number is simple, unpretentious, and has limited features. However, it seemks well designed and sturdy, and as an extension of the user's mobile device, not a replacement, it meets its intended function.
The feature I like about the Cookoo is that it's based on a regular analog watch. It takes the safe design, and build upon it. Not totally smart, but a decent entry and an example of a successful Kickstarter project.
Price: Around £100
The Metawatch may not be pretty, but it is smart. Testers claim that the firmware and software on this thing is some of the most polished they've seen on a smart watch, so if function is more important to you over fashion then this may be a wise choice. Features include multiple screens, widgets and a decent control system.
Price: Around £85
