October 2015 is famously the month that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel forward in time to in Back to the Future 2. While we may not have hoverboards (or time-travelling DeLoreans for that matter) just yet, what we do have here in the future is arguably a lot better. Wearable tech combines the up-to-the-minute technology of mobile devices with the convenience of a wearable accessory, creating the next generation of smart kit. While Google Glass may have sunk without trace, smartwatches are quietly taking the world by storm – you might not even notice your friends and colleagues are wearing them. Your friends at Flubit have chosen five of the best smartwatches around – will you take the plunge and become an early adopter?
Apple Watch Sports
You know what you’re going to get with an Apple product, and the Apple Watch doesn’t disappoint. A stylish, minimalist design available with a variety of wrist straps, the Apple Watch looks classy and does everything your iPhone can but in a smaller package. The Sports version comes with a fitness app and activity tracker to help you boost your workouts and reach peak fitness.
• Siri voice commands
• Apple Pay mobile commerce function
• Notifications, text and phone
• Fitness and activity tracking apps
• Music, maps and more
Samsung Gear S2
In the world of mobile devices you’re usually either an Apple person or a Samsung person. Unsurprisingly, Samsung has gone toe-to-toe with the California tech giant by releasing the Samsung Gear S2. The design is slightly chunkier than Apples and comes in an even greater variety of finishes, making the Gear S2 ideal for those who appreciate slightly more ostentatious wrist candy.
• Bezel system for easier navigation
• Customisable face and strap
• Heart rate, activity and hydration tracker
• Wireless charging
• Samsung Pay mobile commerce function
Sony Mobile SmartWatch 3
Sony’s entry into the smartwatch arena certainly looks the part.

The SmartWatch 3 also boasts refined activity and distance tracking features utilising GPS, compass, accelerometer and gyroscope technology to put you on the path to peak fitness.

Motorola Moto 360 2nd Generation Smartwatch
The first thing you’ll notice about the Moto 360 is that it has a round face, making it unique among wearables. This classic design looks great, and allows for the greatest range of customisable options of any smartwatch.
• Compatible with Google Play Music
• Compatible with Android and iPhone
• Screen brightness adjusts to light intensity
• Wireless charging
• Fully customisable design
Asus VivoWatch Health Watch
Where the other wearables on this list are smartwatches with added health and fitness technology, the Asus VivoWatch Health Watch has been created with those priorities reversed. The VivoWatch is designed to optimise your health, fitness and wellbeing, offering features such as a Happiness Index and Family Care Network to improve quality of life for you and your loved ones.
• 10-day battery life
