Smartwatches are getting more and more popular these days. 

Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch sounds is the important accessory for your Galaxy phone. But if you don't own a Galaxy S or Galaxy Note device, there are other smartwatch options already on the market. Now the question is, what are the current best Galaxy gear alternatives? Here are a few of our favorites.

Meteor

The Meteor focuses more on interface design and fitnesss-related functionalities. It comes with a suite of built-in apps that help users in their workout routines. It also has a sports mode where the watchface becomes a useful stopwatch that lets runners track their time. All of this is controlled not only by the buttons on the smartwatch, but also through voice commands and gestures. For example, if you want to change the song that is currently playing, you can simply say “Play the next track on the playlist,” which will result in the song changing. It comes in a number of form factors, including the typical watch form, a handheld stopwatch form and can even be worn around your neck.

Kreyos Smartwach

As of now the Kreyos Smartwatch hasn’t released yet, but its definitely worth the wait. The Kreyos smartwatch is a watch that doesn’t only show messages, has 7 hours of battery life, allows you to call, has a special sport mode and receive social network notifications. But the most awesome thing is the face that it has voice command and gesture control.

The Pebble

You might have heard of The Pebble, a smartwatch funded on Kickstarter that has been one of the first commercial smartwatches on the market, It is available in red, black and white and is water resistant. The battery last up to 7 days and you can costumize the interface with your smartphone. The pebble will also show you Incoming calls, emails, sms, imessage (for iOS only), facebook alters, twitter and weather. One of the other major advantages of the Pebble is that it is compatible both with Android and Apple. You can Purchase the Pebble for 150 USD

Sony Smartwatch

Are you just not a Samsung fan? Then the Sony smartwatch is the one for you. Sony has its own smartwatch that will tell you the time, show you messages, show you upcoming meetings in the Calendar and show facebook and twitter notifications. It might not be able to do as much as the Pebble but it does have a colored OLED screen. But 2 of the main disadvantages are the battery life of 3-4 days and the fact that its only compatible with Android. You can Purchase a Sony Smartwatch for just under $100
Still not convinced? Be patient.
Both Apple and Microsoft are working on a Smartwatch, as of now we don’t know when these will be released or announced, but we expect Apple to reveal it early 2014. You can check out our post on the iWatch interface to get a better idea of what it could look like. Also, Microsoft’s smartwatch will be available in several colors and made of Oxynitride Aluminium.
