5. Sony Smartwatch 2

That's right, I've warmed up to this smartwatch, a sequel to the model I reviewed in the magazine in the April 2012 issue. Why is it better than the Pebble and the Samsung Galaxy Gear? For starters, it has a color screen and runs a few powerful apps similar to the Gear including one for Evernote. It lasts about four to five days on a charge, which is much longer than the Galaxy Gear at just two days. Plus, the watch lets you do more than just see incoming calls and texts like the Pebble. You can run apps for finding directions on the watch itself or even track your morning run.
