While mechanical watches are the epitome of watchmaking, haute horologists are increasingly experimenting with the digital world, packing signature designs with technology. From tracking our activity to taking notes like a personal assistant to virtual fitness coaching, various built-in functions of a smartwatch strive to make our daily life much easier. Here’re our top picks for slick, sharp smartwatches you can buy right now.
The Huawei Watch
Huawei took a shot at watchmaking back in 2015 and made quite an impressive debut; featured here are the two watches they created. Packing 4 GB of storage, the pieces have a simple yet efficient RAM of 512 MB bundled with a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, all wrapped up with a 1.4 inch display. To begin with, fitness and activity tracking have been its core functions alongside a day and date indicator if you switch to that alternative. Just like all smartwatches, this too uses an app to display a range of more in-depth analytics. This model does have a successor, the Huawei Watch 2 that’s a bit more athleisure oriented.
