The Apple Watch was the runner-up in the “Overall Best Smartwatch” category by Paste Magazine. Here’s what the mag had to say about the Apple smartwatch:
“The iPhone wasn’t the first smartphone and the iPad wasn’t the first tablet—Apple’s never been about being first. But it’s also safe to say that a competitor like Android wasn’t around when those products first hit the market. Winning the smartwatch wars won’t be nearly as easy, and though neither watchOS or Android Wear are as developed as they need to be, the ambitious nature of the Apple Watch is certainly promising.
“Despite not being round, it’s still an incredibly well-built and attractive watch. Rumors are pointing toward a forthcoming price cut, so you may want to wait for that. The sequel to the Apple Watch probably won’t be due for at least a few more months, so the original is a still a good buy, especially with the price cut.”
Paste named the Pebble Time as the “Best Budget Smarwatch, the Fitbit Blaze as the “Best Smartwatch for Fitness,” the Vector Watch as the smartwatch with the best battery life, the Huawei Watch as the one with the best display; and the Moto 360 as the “Overall Best Smartwatch.”
