    I was wondering what is the best wearable smart watch compatible with Nexus 6p. Is there anything right now on the market or should I wait for some more time?

    Depends on what you mean by best... And what your needs are.

    In my opinion the best would better than others. I'm looking for something that syncs well with Nexus 6p and has many features that others don't. I'm also interested in long battery life. Please let me know your suggestions and why I should buy it? Thanks.

    here's the thing...

    There is no perfect device. There are always trade offs... Hence there is no 'BEST' device for the world, only which device is best for you. You can't have awesome battery life, a touch screen, android wear support, and gold plate it all for under £50 /$50....

    And in the absence of any particular information about what you want, Its really hard to recommend something.

    I'd suggest that you should go and do a bit of research about Android Wear, Pebble Devices, and also other activity trackers such as Jawbones or Fitbits....

    All of those will sync well with your devices, but have different focuses and feature sets...

    I understand that there is no perfect device and i am still researching on the latest wearables. I just wanted to get some advise or recommendations from current nexus 6p owners if they are using any smart watch. I just hope somebody will share their experiences through this forum. Unfortunately, I can't give any particular information as to what I need as I am still researching on buying a watch for my new Nexus 6p. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks for help.

    I think that any Android Wear device would be a perfect complement to the Nexus 6P, as they would both run stock Android and make use of all the fun notification handling options built in to the system.

    As for which Android Wear watch is right for you, that largely comes down to a matter of styling preference. All Android Wear devices have essentially the same features for syncing with the phone. So, like any watch, it becomes about what you think looks good.

    Personally, I wear a Huawei Watch to go along with my 6P.

    Thank you codesplice. I was also thinking about buying the Huawei watch coz of the fact that my phone is also from the same company. How long have you been using your watch? Did you notice any limitations as yet that you want to share. How's the battery life? How long does it last for you? I will appreciate your input. Thanks.

    I'm about to slip out for the day, but we've actually got a forum dedicated to the Huawei Watch over here:

    Lots of user testimonials, reviews, opinions, etc to be found there. :)

    PS: since you asked, I've had mine since the end of October - and I love it.

    I have a Motor 360 and it works fine.
    I bought the SteelConnect Lugs so I can use any 22mm band.
    The upside is that the Moto 360 (version 1) is cheap.
