Thinking about a smartwatch for business? Here are the best timepieces for your workday
LG Watch Urbane
It looks like third time’s the charm for LG smartwatches, with the Android Wear-based Watch Urbane finally getting it right after two, let’s say, disappointing attempts.
The display is by no means the best on the market and has some issues in direct sunlight, but is good enough for it to not be an issue and is made up for somewhat by the fashionable overall design.
The watch can last around two days on a single charge and a series of hands-free gestures make the Urbane easier to use when running between meetings, for example. If a premium feel is what you’re after, this is the watch for you.
Sony Smartwatch 3
It might look less of a traditional timepiece than all the other smartwatches on this list, but the Sony Smartwatch 3 still has some stand-out benefits for business users and is also great value for money.
A 420mAh battery puts it on par with most of its competitors (it also charges fairly quickly), there is a fair degree of customisation available and the 1.6-inch transflective display is easy to read outside, even in direct sunlight.
So, the Sony Smartwatch 3 is by no means the most impressive device on offer, but the durable design means it is unlikely to break easily and there are always some good deals on offer if you do enough digging.
