Choosing a smartwatch right now is a decision that’s mostly made based on the mobile operating system you currently favor. The Apple Watch only works with the iPhone, Android Wear devices only support Android smartphones, and smartwatch models running third-party operating system might work with both iOS or Android. However, if you’re still not sold on the Apple Watch – which is shaping up to be the most important smartwatch ever made – and you’re looking at options, then you might want to check out the huge comparison Italian blog MobileWorld has put together.
As you can see in the extensive comparison at the bottom of this post, the Apple Watch is pitted against the Alcatel One Touch Watch, the Asus ZenWatch, the Huawei Watch, the LG G Watch R, the Motorola Moto 360, the Pebble Steel, the Samsung Gear S and the Sony Smartwatch 3.
The information in the graphic below includes complete specs and features, European prices for the devices and availability dates. The one downside of the infographic is that it’s written in Italian, so you may have some issues – keep a Google Translate tab close by to translate some of those words.
The full comparison between the Apple Watch and some of its main rivals follows below.
