But if you’re interested in just the top wearables that made an appearance at the event in Berlin, here they are:
- TomTom Spark
The Garmin of Europe, and the European industry leader in navigation, traffic and map products has already been flirting with GPS sports watches. After a partnership with Nike for sports watches failed, the company launched its own branded product called TomTom Runner & Multi-Sport GPS Watch. It tracked time, distance and can be connected to a heart rate monitor via Bluetooth (BLE), which also wasn’t a big hit. But their latest model: TomTom Spark is worth a look.
Its square design is more like Apple Watch or the Pebble, and targets the loyal TomTom audience by focusing on fitness tracking and audio features. The watch has 3 GB onboard storage, plus one model comes with an optical heart rate monitor. TomTom didn’t give away any pricing details, though their high-end model is supposed to cost somewhere around $300.
- The new Moto 360
Okay, the rumors were true. The Moto 360 2 will be available in two different sizes (42mm and 46mm).
The smartwatch looks slightly better than the first-gen Moto 360, and also has better specs. Both the smartwatches have the same innards: a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. But the size and resolution of screens is different: 1.37-inch (360 x 325 display) vs 1.56-inch (360 x 330).
Expected to be shipped by the end of this month, the smartwatch is already available for preorder. The price starts at $299.99, and goes up as you go for the bigger size or customize it by choosing Micro Knurl bezel, gold case, a metal band etc.
- Samsung Gear S2
The watch that had created the most hype turned out to be the prettiest one.
We’ve already talked a lot about the Tizen-powered watch with 1.2-inch, circular OLED screen and rotating bezel, so go ahead and check out our last post for more details.
