Although watches have been somewhat replaced by mobile phones today, some people, myself included, still like to wear one. Having quick access to the time can be immensely useful, as well as the date. If you have a smartwatch, you can also see information, like your next appointment or pending notifications, on your wrist. Today we’ll be looking at some of the best watches available in 2017, some smartwatches, others not.
Released in 2015 to much fanfare, the Apple Watch has stood the test of time. While other smartwatch manufacturers have faded into obscurity or have been bought out by larger companies (like Pebble), the Apple Watch stays in its original form today. Now in its third generation, with the Series 3, the Apple Watch is one of the best, if not the best, smartwatches available today. Its little brother, the Series 1 is still a serious contender, even if it doesn’t have the waterproofing features or the faster speed. If you want to splurge or be a bit fancier, the Series 3 comes in a stainless steel version, as well as a more expensive ceramic edition. It’s not as famous as Apple’s Series 0 18k gold watch, but it looks great nonetheless. Overall, the Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches available today, and even though it has an unorthodox square shape, it looks great
Samsung Gear 3
If you own an Android device, or you simply don’t like Apple’s square shape, the Samsung Gear 3 blurs the line between smartwatch and wristwatch. It has a much more accepted round shape, complete with a rim that rotates. This rotating rim allows you to manipulate the UI, and looks just like one you’d find on a normal watch. The more expensive version is laden with metal, and looks extremely classy. However, the user interface isn’t the most polished, and it’s also extremely expensive. Still if you’re in the market for a great looking smartwatch, the Samsung Gear 3 is the perfect fit.
LUPAI watches have always been known for their low great value and awesome looks, and the LUPAI Rialto is no exception. While it’s not a smartwatch like the previous watches, the Rialto sports has an extremely minimalistic and classy look, with equally classy colors. It looks exquisite, and the only thing out of place is its price. At just $99, it seems like a deal too good to be true. Thankfully, it’s because of it’s amazing design, and not because of misleading prices. Overall, the LUPAI Rialto is an awesome watch, and it looks chic and elegant on any woman’s wrist.
Rolex Submariner Automatic
Finally, at the luxury end of the scale is the Rolex Submariner Automatic. This watch retails at just under $8000. The Submariner Automatic is billed as an everyday watch. It’s cased in stainless steel, and has a black dial for contrast. The markers and hands are luminous to add some further practicality. A popular choice with business owners and those with high flying careers, it’s no surprise to see the Rolex Submariner in this list.
This concludes the list of best watches available in 2017. Hopefully this list helps you to make an educated decision on your next watch.
