    "Looking for the best smartwatches to watch out for during 2018, I came across Emporio Armani Hybrid Smartwatch ART3004. While it's very well done. The features it has doesn't justify the price tag. You could get a watch for half the price with more features. This is not the best smartwatch."

    "I was really impressed with the Garmin Forerunner 230 smartwatch. The battery life is great as I would normally only have to charge it once a week. I also liked the style of this smartwatch which is more of a mechanical watch design as opposed to a brick. I also liked that fact that it very customizable with a large number downloadable watch faces. Some people complain that the size is a bit bulky but I did not find this to be an issue and thought that the size was appropriate and very lightweight."

    "Looking to replace my aging 1st gen Fitbit Flex. I wanted something with a face featuring more information. It really needs to be durable So i went with the Polar V800, its kind of pricey but with the bulkiness of it. It must be a tank. After a few weeks with the watch i began to have issue with the band. Easily fixed though with putting the pin back in."

    "I believe that the Casio WSD-F10 is the biggest smart outdoor watch to watch out for during 2018. It is rugged and manly, which most smart watches are not. Plus, it works just as well as the fancier smart watches. I will definitely be recommending this watch to my friends. "

    "Uber minimalism is the first thing that comes to mind. It's basically a around slab of aluminum and glass, with a color matched button. If you like minimalism, you really really can't get more minimalist than this. This design is so minimal, it's almost nihilist. Included band is color matched silicone with a color matched clasp. I told you, it's really damn minimalist. I'm sure the other colors have a bit more flair than the black one, but black goes with everything, so I'll stick with it. It does take standard 20mm bands though, so you can jazz it up if you feel like being oh so pretty. Performance and features: After comparing it to other Wear 2.0 watches in store, it appears to be just as fast as all the others, so no worries there. It does come with some custom designed misfit watch faces, but all brands make their own custom faces, so that's not so strange. The faces are helpful, and are centered on the misfit health software, which does sync with Google fit. Plus to that. As with any Android Wear watch, you can install any damn face or app you want from the play store. The interface is basically "stock Android Wear 2.0" with the exception of the custom misfit faces, some of which do support complications, and just about all elements on those faces are customizable, so you should be able to get it to look and function how you want."

    "At first I was a a bit sceptical regarding the battery lifetime, but after nearly 30 days and 30% battery left I'm now completely convinced. After unboxing the Vector Luna the display told me that the battery is empty, so I had to charge the battery before to test. The first charge of the battery took about 1,5 hours. In my opinion thats awesome keeping in mind that the battery will last for 30 days. The pairing with my Windows 10 Mobile phone (Microsoft Lumia 950) was really easy."

    "This watch is awesome in that it looks like a classic high end watch, but is actually a smart watch. It has all the functionalities a smart watch has and is stylish. This is definitely an option you should look to buy when considering a smartwatch."
