    Since wearable computing smartwatches have started to evolve into something fleshed out and useful, we thought it would be a great idea to get some feedback from our members. This is a smartwatch poll designed to find out which (if any) smartwatch has either intrigued you enough to consider, or even enticed you enough to open your wallet.

    Of course, if you are still completely unconvinced by the new "tech fad," then we have that as an option for you as well. We allowed up to two votes for folks who are torn between more than one device. Please be sure to comment in the thread and let us know why you voted the way you did. We are anxious to hear from you folks!

    If I were to get one I think it would be a toss up between the Gear S2 or the Urbane LTE since they have the ability to replace your phone as a phone.

    Neither run Android Wear so that would mean I have to make a choice between one proprietary OS versus another proprietary OS. Since I am not a watch wearer 99.9% of the time that represents another hurdle in just walking into a store and buying a smartwatch.

    I chose other and none.
    Other because my current one wasn't and option and none because I'm waiting for one with more functionality AND a bigger screen than the current and next wave will be offering. The Gear S2s are a step forward in removing Samsung phone exclusivity but they shrunk the screen to half of the usable I currently enjoy using.

    The Huawei watch looks like.... wait for it.......... A watch.......
    It even has a sapphire crystal.
    I'm a wach guy and it looks like something I would buy, will buy.
    I have the Moto360 right now and it's okay, but bad on battery life and I had to purchase extra lugs to make it look like a watch.

    I voted for the regular Urbane, simply because it's the watch I have right now and it's serving me quite well. Each update of AW seems to improve some little thing, often something that I didn't even realize was an issue until they made it better.

    None of the new ones really grab me as something I have to have. If I hadn't already upgraded from the G watch to the Urbane, that might be a different story. Still not a fan of the flat tire on the Moto watches and definitely have to have AW as opposed to any other OS.

    I had been pretty excited for the Apple Watch, but after all the hoopla died down a bit, I'm not sorry I didn't get one, or any other smartwatch. I don't have tons of money lying around, so I'm finding it tough to spend it on something that's certainly a want, and not a need. I guess you could apply that logic to anything, really, but these watches really don't do anything that my phone cant do. Yes, you can do things faster, and sometimes more conveniently, but they don't excite me. I'm waiting for a watch (or other tech) that does something bold and original, that my phone doesn't.

    I feel the same way. OMG! I had to reach for my phone to see a notification. Say it ain't so, Bob!

    I want stand alone functionality otherwise it's just one huge notification center at an extra expense.

    Really the Gear S2 is awesome, but I can't trust Tizen will have the apps I want. I can't even browse what apps are available and what they do. I have essentially one specific reason for getting a smartphone, and as far as I know that app does not exist on Tizen (but it does on Androidwear).

    It may come down to which one drops first - 3G Gear S2 (because it has GPS) or the Moto Sport.

    Sammy says they have 1,000 apps for Tizen already, but what are the odds that they have the one you are looking for? Lol

    I know, right? Not sure if it ever launched or updated, but they do have a really cool app that uses the accelerometer and gyroscope to count your sets! But it's almost all body weight exercises and the workouts aren't customizable (which seems like a gigantic fail).

    It's a simple weightlifting app...if I knew anything at all about programming I could probably make one myself. But maybe it's not that simple since JEFIT apparently won't develop a smartwatch app (or maybe they're waiting for Apple or Sammie to throw money at them to do it).

    But like I said, I'd still be leery of Tizen, though as a standalone device maybe it doesn't really matter. Still, having the Droid Turbo seems like it would be pretty tight with the Moto 360.
