    Hey Android Forums I have been gifted $50 and told to only spend it on some sort of watch. I think they had in mind like a fancy watch that doesn't have to do with android. But, I'm think of tossing in $20-$30ish of my own money to get a android watch, I saw the moto 360 1st generation was just on my budget but I'm want to explore my options. What about a different watch, let me know what you think is a good idea in the comments and poll!!! P.S I have a Nexus 5X as my daily driver phone if that helps

    I have the Galaxy Gear Live and enjoy it. But, smart watches are in a rough spot, right now.

    My Gear Live used the Android OS, which I really liked. Newer models are using Tizen, which I'm not a fan of the look. Until the latest watches start using Android, again, I'm saving my money.

    I mean, do you have any in mind? Are you buying new or used?

    I owned the first Sony SmartWatch. Lemme say this... a low resolution, low powered smart watch isn't fun at all. I believe you'll want a 320x320, or equivalent, display resolution for starters.

    Depending on what you want to do with them, you might also want to consider the 'pebble' watches. They're not for everyone, but then again smartwatches don't seem to be for everyone either.,,

    Thanks for the help! I made the decision to get a LG G Watch and am really enjoying it! I used Android ADB to sideload some Android Apps and are working well! My friend has a pebble watch and it didn't seem for me. Thanks for the help everyone!
