Smartwatch technology is super cool and super cool looking. But, not everything that is cool looking necessarily looks good as an accessory. Women spend half their lives choosing which accessories to wear in the morning and men spend about a quarter of their life doing the same. Trust me, this is science.  So, which smartwatches make you look debonair and which ones make you look clunky? It’s a fine line.

Sporty people look most awesome in the [easyazon-link asin=”B009VT10MS” locale=”us”]i’m Watch[/easyazon-link]. (You know who you are. You Under Armour wearing minx.) This little baby bears a resemblance to the Nike Sport Watch and matches most sneakers.  The band comes in six different colors and the chrome frame screams “I take my step counting seriously.”

The combination of an old and new school look is really fascinating, and ultra fashionable. It’s a wonder they’re the only ones to think of it.

The [easyazon-link asin=”B00FH9I0FQ” locale=”us”]Samsung Galaxy Gear[/easyazon-link] smartwatch is the sleekest option. The model is thin, smooth and attractive. It’s a far more attractive choice over its most similar counterpart, the [easyazon-link asin=”B007VG6ZC8″ locale=”us”]Sony SmartWatch[/easyazon-link], which wears as a more bulky and obtrusive box–like object on your wrist.

For those partial to a snazzier watchband, Pebble is the only way to go. The [easyazon-link asin=”B00AZOA5EC” locale=”us”]Pebble Smartwatch[/easyazon-link] has an original, curved shape to it and doesn’t strap itself to your wrist with rubber. Rubber is never a good idea to wear unless you’re flirting with Idina Menzel in Rent.  The watch comes with a leather or steel band that will make businessmen everywhere rejoice!

Personally, I would throw money at anyone who came up with a classic analog watch that projected a hologram of my phone’s contents up into the air. I suppose I’m asking too much, but then again, it’s fourteen days into 2014 and I still don’t have a hover board. I think I’ve been more than understanding, thus far.
