Default HTC and Smartwatches

Hi

First of all I'm interested with smartwatches but waited for HTC MAYBE to reveal new smartwatch but I guess it will release later on this year so by then I'm checking other companies like Samsung and Sony Smartwatches

Does any one checked that the new Sony Smartwatch 2 is connecting with HTC One Max or the New Samsung Gear Fit ?

Its really matter of discussion

I have the Samsung Note 2 and can tell you that Samsung Gear is compatible only with a few Samsung devices. There's the Pebble which is great and a few others that are out now that'll work though...

Well Samsung smart watches only work with Samsung devices. Sony's is pretty cool and hackable. I think my pebble is the best, but I'm probably biased since i did purchase it.

I would wait for the android wear smart watches to start coming out, htc was announced as a partner i believe. The moto 360 looks cool as hell.

Get the Pebble or Pebble Steel.. Best bang for buck! Plus it's "WATER PROOF"..

My wife and I both have had one for a while and love it.

I'd vote for Android Wear being used by various manufacturers. That said, I've seen bluetooth conflicts with Sense 5.5 and prior (haven't tried 6 yet), and would lean towards one made by HTC. Whichever you may choose, check for their supported devices to be sure.

Main issue I have with samsung's are that they are more or less useless... You still have to use your phone for a lot. Its almost like a pager you can take pics and calls with. Most notifications still require phone... Pebble is nice. Hopefully the android wear concept gets HTC backing. But in all reality for me... Its not really needed. That being said I'm not a watch wearer.
