Started with smartphones which can do much more than my current PC, and now we have smart watches. Smart watches are like a small round smartphone attached to your wrist, and you can do much more that checking time. You can get notifications, reply to mail and messages or control music with a single tap. There are many smartwatches available in the market right now. Let’s check out some of the best smartwatches from the best smartphone manufacturers. The list is as below:
Samsung Gear S2 Classic
Samsung is now well known for making “Classic” gadgets; you can see all the class in its smartphones. Samsung once again proved that no one is above him creating new technology. With Gear S2 Classic (which is a classic version of Gear S2), Gear S2 changed the way you interact with your smartwatch. Apple tried it in its smartwatch and failed (that little crown thing).
Samsung made the bezel rotatable so you can navigate through some apps, lists, chat threads and more. Samsung used its own Tizen OS in this smartwatch. Tizen is the most secure OS in the world, so you don’t need to worry about security. Gear S2 Classic is waterproof with the IP68 rating which means if even if you drop it into a full glass of water, it will survive.

Motorola Moto 360 2nd Gen
Motorola Moto 360 2nd gen. smartwatch inherits the same round dial design from the first generation.

Motorola installed the ambient light sensor below that small black section.

Now in 2nd gen of Moto 360, you can easily replace bands using a little metal latch at the back of the band.
