5 Best Android Smartwatch 2017

Wearable Technologies has greatly improved over the last few years and smartwatch is becoming the lead for smartphone accessories. Some of the smartwatches can naturally tell time, but offcus they do more than just that, the can go as far as running some cool Android Apps, Monitor heart rate during excesses and provide notifications just from your wrist.

Some of the Best Android Smartwatch of 2016 can even do more like, they can also enable you to search the internet with your voice, tracking your exercise through GPS, and letting you check-out at the grocery store without reaching for your wallet. This is very interesting.

Currently, it is more difficult to pick the Best Smartwatch with Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Moto, Asus and others designing a strong shield of Powerful Android Wearable Devices. Smartwatches do alot more than just showing time, but which should you buy for these Christmas?

In order to answer that question, I have rounded up the Best Android Smartwatch (including the just released Gear S3, Asus Zenwatch 3 and the Huawei Honor) to help you decide.

Before I begin listing, here some things I considered!

Compatible Devices

Naturally, this is the first thing you consider before buying any Smartwatch, Most of the smartwatches that are available runs on Android Wear (Google's operating system for wearables), these are very much Android-centric devices. And just as you can guess, the Apple Watch connects strictly to iOS-powered devices, meaning they can connect only to iPhones.

While some other watches, like the Pebble family, work with both Android and iOS. Unfortunately there no device that supports Blackberry OS10 or Windows OS, so make sure you pick a watch that's compatible with the mobile device you own.

Fitness

If you want a smartwatch on your wrist with the best look, you'll want a smartwatch that can do double-duty as a fitness tracker or any other wearable gadget. Most smartwatches are capable of tracking basic activity, like steps, but you need to pay close attention to any additional features.

Like the Moto 360 Sport, Samsung Gear S3, Asus Zenwatch 3 for instance, feature built-in GPS, 4G LTE, so they can track your runs without the help of a companion device and offer a fast speed of internet connection. They also have built-in heart rate sensors, so its important to pay attention to the activities you want to monitor before you choose.

Price

Some Android smartwatches can be very expensive, but doesn't mean you need to break the bank or spend a lot of money to get a good one. Yes, the latest Samsung Gear S3 draws an attention of $349.99 and the Huawei Watch Rose Gold for $478.44, placing it among the most expensive Android smartwatches that we recommend.

If your are new to Smartwatches or you want to test it for the first time, you may be thinking they cost a lot cheaper like under $100, luckily there are some they cost less than $100 like the original Pebble 2.
