10. Pebble Smartwatch Steel
Opens the ranking of the top ten smart watches Pebble SmartWatch Steel, the money for the development of which was collected by the whole world on Kickstarter. The result is a smart watch with a classic look, small size and with all the functionality required by the average user. The main plus of the watch is a long-lived battery, which lasts for 5-6 days.
• The main disadvantage is that there is no official supplier to Russia.
9 Pebble Time
The younger plastic brother of the steel number ten rating of smartwatches. Pros: very capacious battery; non-touch (for a small screen, this is definitely a plus); they are not afraid of water – with them you can safely dive into the pool or go to the bath.
• Cons: no Russian language in the menu; small selection of applications.
8. Huawei Watch Geniune Leather Strap
A very well-made gadget (sapphire crystal, jewelry steel, even a wooden case). One of the best smartwatches from China looks like a regular watch with hands, and at the same time it accepts voice commands, all calls and incoming messages can be seen on the screen, and you can easily and easily use the Ok Google service.
• Minus: the specific design of the charger and the price.
7. Apple Watch Series 1
A beautiful screen, speaker, microphone – a complete replacement for the phone if it is out of reach. Apps load quickly and are stable, and the stylish design just looks good.
• Minus: a very small battery charge, lasts literally 1-2 days.
6. Apple Watch Series 2
The younger brother of the fifth place in the ranking. The second series of "smart watches" from Apple differs primarily in a more powerful S2 processor, reliable protection against moisture, the presence of a GPS module and a brighter display. Whether this increase in price by a third is worth it is up to you.
5. Xiaomi Mi Band 2

The gadget performs synchronization with the phone in no time, there is WiFi, Bluetooth, ANT +.
• Disadvantage: the watch is very massive.
3. Garmin Forerunner 920XT HRM Run
The third place in the top of smart watches goes to a truly indispensable device for athletes. The watch helps track all the indicators required for training, and even such exotic ones as, for example, vertical oscillations of the body. For ordinary hobbyists, the number of features may seem redundant. And the appearance sharpened for sports may not be combined with a business suit.
2. Casio ECB-500D-1A
The second place in the ranking of smart watches is occupied by a model from CASIO with a stainless steel case and strap. The clock is synchronized with the smartphone, so when changing time zones, you do not need to twist them manually. The main plus: charging from a solar battery means that they will work indefinitely. Minus: alas, if you are the owner of a smartphone not from iPhone or Samsung, then the watch will not want to synchronize with it, so there are no notifications about calls, e-mails, and so on.
