If you haven’t yet heard of “hybrid smartwatches,” or “smart analog watches,” you soon will.
A hybrid smartwatch provides, in theory, the best of both the smartwatch and traditional-watch worlds. It has the face of a traditional watch and the brains of an activity tracker. Are smart analog watches as good as dedicated activity trackers from Fitbit, or smartwatches from Apple or Android Wear watch makers? Many make some compromises, but on the bright side, the watches shown here don’t require frequent recharging, they look ultra-stylish, and they vary widely in price, from reasonably affordable ($130) to budget-busting ($2,495).
Here are 15 of the latest hybrid smartwatch models, most released recently and many within the past few weeks.
