Ocho relojes: The 8 latest smart watches on the market

Asus

Zenwatch 2

The Asus ZenWatch turned some heads when it was released in 2014, but with more of the market moving towards round faces, nobody knew what to expect for its successor. The Asus ZenWatch 2 was announced at IFA in 2015 and released in September of 2015. The ZenWatch 2 was different from its predecessor due to the fact that it was offered in two different sizes; 49mm and 45mm with strap sizes of 22mm and 18mm, respectively.

Motorola

Moto 360 Second Gen

Arguably the most beautiful Android Wear device was released in late 2014, the Moto 360. Folks everywhere were wondering how Motorola was going to follow up the great first run with an Android Wear smartwatch, and whether that annoying flat-tire would still be around. When the new Moto 360 started getting leaked, people were disappointed, until they saw it in person.

The 2015 Moto 360 still has that flat tire that houses the various sensors, but Motorola was quick to let everyone know that the display to bezel ratio was better than any smartwatch available today. It comes in 42mm and 46mm sizes as well as Rose Gold, Chrome, and Black.

    No mention of Pebble?

      I think the article is only referencing Android Wear watches. While Pebble has AW compatible notifications, it doesn’t need AW to function. It’s probably the same reason we aren’t seeing any of the Tizen watches from Samsung listed here.

    You forgot the Motorola 360 Sport, which has GPS on board and an innovative hybrid display for better readability in daylight and to save battery power. In my opinion the best value for money today.
