Top 5 Budget SmartWatches to compete with Apple Watch

It’s Tuesday and as we do every week, we are here with the Top 5 of the week and this time even we are obsessed with the Smartwatches as it has been on our minds since the last few weeks, first with the anticipation of the Apple Watch and since then looking for different options that can substitute the Apple Watch without burning a huge hole in your pocket. Let us discuss five budget Smartwatches that are so good, that they might actually give Apple a run for their money.

Moto 360

Budget SmartWatches

Moto 360 is one of the best looking Smartwatches available at a fraction of a price than the Apple Watch. The Moto 360 watch starts at $249 and you can actually customise the entire watch including the dial, the strap, the back etc of the watch to personalise it and make it according to your liking.

Moto 360 is powered by Android Wear and it gets you timely notifications that help you stay connected while on the go and you can just respond with a single touch or voice instead of going through the pain of pulling out your phone from your bag or your pocket and performing a series of touch functions before answering the text. Moto 360 is a watch to lookout for if you insist on staying stylish at a decent price too.

Pebble Steel

Pebble Steel

Pebble provides a range of SmartWatches which are funky for the hipster generation as well as a more swankier option for the cool dudes who would like to go a little light on their pocket and are not ready to invest their college money on a watch. The Pebble runs for an astonishing 7 days or more on a single charge which is not possible even with the Apple Watch, which some tech blogs believe would have to be recharged every single night. The Pebble Watch is Water Resistant so you don’t need to suppress that adventurous guy in you.

LG G Watch

LG G Watch R

LG G watch can be included in the 5 potential Smartwatches that can compete with the Apple Watch. The G Watch R is a fusion of Classic Style and the latest Wearable Technology. LG goes circular with the G Watch R unlike the rectangle Pebble watches, which sometimes have to let go of the style content. The watch runs on Android 4.3 or higher. This watch provides a robust fitness experience which is similar to having a fitness tracker with PPG Sensor. The watch is quite durable and is even water and dust resistant.

Huawei Watch

When we are talking about the Smartwatches which are better than Apple Watch and at a decent budget, Huawei Watch might just be better than Apple Watch, at least as far as the Android Wear devices are concerned. The dial of the watch has a sharp protection of sapphire glass which is a star in itself, something you would not find in many other smart watches. The crown, lugs and the frame of the Huawei Watch gives it a look of more like a traditional wrist watch merged with technology and that is what makes this smart watch stand out among other competitors. The Huawei Watch is one of the most chic and fashionable smart watches you would imagine and you can trust our word.

ASUS ZenWatch

ASUS watch

The latest to arrive to the party is the ASUS ZenWatch and it states that Luxury never looked this good, indeed this is true for this classic watch from ASUS. The ZenWatch can be easy to wear and remove in an instant, which might not be the case with your Apple Watch, as it is you use each of your Apple Products like your body parts because you know they are fragile. The Italian leather band of the watch comes in three rich colours and you can choose from more than 100 face times to match your style. The notifications are easy to receive and you can answer a call or a message in an instant, which saves a lot of time in your busy schedule.
