The Apple Watch is currently the best smartwatch available to consumers, according to a recent Consumer Reports tested 11 different smartwatch models, including several different Apple Watch models. The results are based on various tests that include durability, water resistance, readability, ease of use, ease of interaction, and health functionality.



The Apple Watch tops the Apple Watch Sport and LG G Watch R (tied for No. 2), Pebble Steel, Moto 360, ASUS ZenWatch, Samsung Gear S, Martian Notifier, and Sony SmartWatch 3.


"In the end, our top-rated smartwatch is the stainless-steel Apple Watch," according to Consumer Reports. "Its performance on the scratch-resistance test and excellent scores for ease of pairing and ease of interaction make it our top choice. Not an iPhone user? Not to worry, several Android-compatible models and one multi-OS-compatible smartwatch got very good overall scores as well."
