If you're an iPhone owner and you want to join the wearable revolution, the Apple Watch Series 2 isn't your only choice – there are a whole host of iOS-compatible smartwatches already on the market, with features that Cupertino's smartwatch can only dream of.
Plus, of course, Android Wear is compatible with iOS. Sure, it's fairly stripped back and not the full Google smartwatch experience, but it means iPhone users now have plenty of options to choose from. And it will only get better with Wear 2.0.

So, if you find the Apple Watch a little too pricey or just not your style, we've rounded up a selection of the best alternatives to pick from, any of which will sync seamlessly with your iPhone with zero fuss.
While the Huawei Watch 2 might be on hold for now, the first Huawei Watch is every bit the luxury opposite number on the Android Wear side of things. Unsurprisingly then, the price tags are roughly shoulder to shoulder.
There's plenty of metal link straps to choose from and options of rose gold too, but it's the pin-sharp 10,000:1 contrast display that will probably catch your eye. The missing GPS is the only blot on its copybook but otherwise a very cool customer and now compatible with iPhone, of course.
Take a look at our full Huawei Watch review to see what we love and hate about the sleek Android Wear watch.
For those looking at the Apple Watch's fitness and health capabilities, the Fitbit Blaze is a worthy alternative. Fitbit's 'fitness watch' trounces Apple's undercooked health features and still includes notifications from your iPhone's stock apps – although WhatsApp is still missing on iOS for now, despite support being added for Android.
While runners and cyclists will find the balance of features a dead rubber, the Fitbit's daily activity tracking with its emphasis on resting heart rate tracking steals the show.
Check out our full Fitbit Blaze review to see what we made of the Apple Watch smartwatch rival.
Garmin Vivoactive HR
Now with built-in heart rate tracking, the Garmin Vivoactive HR is possibly the most complete sports watch ever made. Much like the Apple Watch, the Vivoactive HR is designed for those who dabble in lots of sports, featuring modes for running, walking, cycling, golf, and more via Connect IQ.
With Garmin's impressive notifications support added into the mix, it's a powerful Apple Watch competitor and the battery life is also top notch, too.

Mondaine Helvetica No 1 Smart
Again, for those looking at the Apple Watch for its mediocre fitness tracking, the Mondaine is a much more attractive competitor. The traditional Swiss watch manufacturers aren't going to sit back and let Apple have their own way, and the Helvetica No 1 Smart from luxury firm Mondaine is proof of that. Like the Withings Activité, it combines a traditional watch face with a second dial for fitness tracking.
There are no notifications but some smart tracking features (the watch actually uses the same MotionX sensors found inside products from Jawbone and Nike). If you care more about style than Twitter alerts, this could be the answer.
Polar's first ever Android Wear smartwatch doesn't feel all like a smartwatch, but that's actually a good thing.
You still get all the Wear goodies on board including notification and app support, but it lives more in the background letting Polar's sports tracking features take centre stage including the built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring and Polar Flow software.
While it's pretty pricey for a Polar watch and it's nowhere as good looking as the Apple Watch Series 2, it's still a strong contender as a sporty alternative.

Pebble Time Steel
Its colour e-paper screen means the battery lasts for up to 10 days on one charge, and Pebble's innovative timeline interface looks like a clever idea for smartwatches. You get voice control, swappable straps, a choice of metal or leather bands, the new Pebble Health features and much more.
Tag Heuer Connected
Yes, this is the most expensive Android Wear watch out there by some distance, but if you want a luxurious smartwatch around your wrist, it doesn't get much better than this.
Essential reading: Upcoming smartwatches to look out for
The Connected looks like a classic Tag for starters with first-class build quality and a host of impressively detailed custom watch faces. Android Wear is there keeping things running but it definitely takes more of a backseat than it does on Wear alternatives from LG, Motorola and company.
Tag is definitely onto a winner here. Now we just need to Google to up its game on the software front.

LG Watch Urbane
The Urbane is a decent copy of a dress watch, something the Apple Watch has never been able to achieve. Whether you get the silver or gold finished stainless steel one thing is for sure: it's shiny shiny. There's no missing it. The full round, now smaller but still sizeable bezel is seriously eye- and light-catching.
The LG Watch Urbane second edition exists, but if you want a stylish yet simple LG Android Wear watch, this is still the one to go for.

Warning: the Vector Luna has no touchscreen but you may actually prefer it this way. It might take a little unlearning all that tech has taught you over the last eight years but there is an advantage to this platform agnostic smartwatch's three-button control. It means that the battery life lasts a staggering one month on a single charge. Eat that Apple.
The Luna is also a swish little number if you opt for one of the higher-end styles and finishes. Drawbacks include a slightly flaky notification set-up and a screen that does let the side down somewhat. It's called pay-off for that month of battery.

Casio Smart Outdoor WSD-F10
The Casio Outdoor Smartwatch is designed for those who love a bit of adventure and the great outdoors. It's aimed a segment of people who would traditionally look to Suunto or Garmin – or perhaps Casio's non-smart but super-durable G-SHOCK brand – but still want some traditional smartwatch action.
With dedicated apps for hiking, fishing and biking, a bevvy of sensors, the ability to hook into apps and services and access a world of data, the Casio is much more rugged and adventure friendly than the Cupertino timepiece. It also has a mode to extend battery life to a month.
