Introduction:

With the launch of Motorola’s moto 360, the smartwatch circle is now complete with LG’s G watch R and Galaxy Gear S already released earlier this week. All new smartwatches have essentially round shape and not to mention but all of them are serious competitors to each other. While the Moto 360 and LG G watch R give the feel of a normal wrist watch, the Gear S feels like a mini smartphone attached to your wrist with almost all the functionality of the smartphone with a few exceptions.
