    Huawei watch is by far superior to all others. What other offers sapphire glass, sound speaker and high resolution display?

    Huawei is way to expensive. Still.

    If I was buying today, I'd get the Fossil or the Asus Zenwatch 2. The Asus may not have a speaker and Sapphire Glass...but it's $150 and does everything all the others do.

    I agree with Pere. The Huawei is a nice watch, but a speaker and sapphire glass are not the most important things in a watch to many people. The Fossil watches are just as nice. There is nothing wrong with the Moto 360 2ND Gen & Sport either. I think the Sport is down to $149 brand new and has all the Android Wear bells & whistles for that price.

    I just don't like that you can't change bands on the Sport or I would have recommended that, too.

    OK, true. Good point, the stock band is not replaceable. It's still a good deal for $149 in my opinion.

    Not too bad looking, I like it. I personally would not pay $255 for it, but does seem like a nice AW watch for that price range.

    Can't agree with Pere and Sajo more. Most of us here that use android wear watches got into it when Pere started a thread about the original LG G Watch being on sale for $99.

    Start small. You can always upgrade later if you like it as much as we do, but if you decide you don't, you're not out as much money.

    I'm still loving my LG Watch Urbane. Don't know that I care about the watch having its own mobile data connection, so I don't think I'd recommend the Watch Urbane 2 or LTE or whatever they're calling it. Not to mention, it was about to launch and then got delayed for some time, so who know if they really fixed whatever caused the delay.

    Oooo! Yeah. That's a sharp looking watch. I'm with Sajo on price, even though I paid a good penny for my Watch Urbane. It's still doing the job just fine, so I can't see upgrading for that kinda money any time soon.

    Thank you all for your Input!

    I like the Fossil Smartwatch. $315 isnt too bad but id like to get a metal Band Watch for less. I wish i could get a Titanium band or something to that effect like my current Tissot. Its so light and switch from Stainless was so noticeable.

    Doesn't look like a metal band comes on the Z3, so yea, if that's what you want I'd say Fossil all day.
