HWM (Singapore) - - Contents - Text by TeamHWM • A t Di ec­tion Ken Koh

Although the Ap­ple Watch has be­come the most suc­cess­ful smart­watch in the mar­ket, with Ap­ple piv­ot­ing to­wards health and fit­ness, we’re glad that didn’t spell the death of fit­ness track­ers. They’re more pur­pose-built and con­ve­nient any­way. Like last year, Fit­bit is the run­away win­ner, with 52% of the votes. Fit­bit makes no less than seven ac­tiv­ity-track­ing de­vices, in­clud­ing the new HRM-ca­pa­ble Charge 2 and the slim Flex 2, the ban­gle-like Alta and the watch-like Blaze, as well as the Surge “su­per watch”. In se­cond place is Garmin, which re­cently un­veiled an EZ-Link-com­pat­i­ble Vivosmart HR ac­tiv­ity tracker. This is the 8th edi­tion of our an­nual HWM+Hard­ware Zone.com Tech Awards, and in the last is­sue, we rounded up the prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies that won our Ed­i­tor’s Choice awards.

This is­sue, we’re go­ing to break­down all 44 of the best brands in the in­dus­try that won the Read­ers’ Choice awards by pop­u­lar vote. Here, you’ll find out which brands have the most con­sumer mind­share in Sin­ga­pore, how far a lead they have, plus our lit­tle anal­y­sis on why we thought they de­served their win.
