THE BEST SMARTWATCH IS
LG GWATCH R
Unlike smartphones, which are basically rectangular slabs with screens on them, smartwatches have a lot more room to play with different form factors, styles and even display shapes. With that in mind, the two watches that stood out to us were the Motorola Moto 360 and LG G Watch R. While there’s nothing wrong with traditional square-face watches (in fact, we quite like them), they just look too much like tiny computers strapped to your wrist. Between the Moto 360 and G Watch R, while we liked the minimalist style of the Moto 360, but the black bar that cuts off the bottom section of the screen ruins an otherwise elegant design. On the other hand, the G Watch R’s chunky, angular black aesthetic looks more aggressive and masculine but it also looks a lot more like a watch, especially with its faux diving bezel. Its excellent battery life, gorgeous crisp display, ability to take any standard 22mm watch strap and snappy processor sealed the deal for us.
