Comparison: All of the Android Wear devices announced or released in 2017 so far

Android Wear started off, as many Google products do, as something closer to a proof-of-concept than a finished product. The first watches had problems, the software was unfinished, and tech companies were the only ones producing them. Now that Android Wear is becoming a more mature platform, mostly thanks to the long-awaited 2.0 update, we're starting to see more watches than ever hit the market.

It was fairly easy to compare Android Wear watches in years past - only a handful of tech companies even bothered. But now, a vast amount of wearables are being released, with most of them by actual watch companies.

[Update: Nope] The original Huawei Watch might get Android Pay

The original Huawei Watch, especially after the disappointment of the second model, is one of more popular Android Wear watches. While it was already expected to get Android Wear 2.0, now it seems a later update might enable the watch's NFC chip, for use with Android Pay.

Android Wear 2.0 update is finally rolling out, but only to three watches for now

It's been around two months since Android Wear 2.0 officially launched, yet no watches that launched with Wear 1.0 have been updated to it yet. Nope, not even the Huawei Watch or LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which have been running the developer previews since mid-2016, have received this long-awaited update. That changes today, though; Android Wear 2.0 is now rolling out to the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch, and TAG Heuer Connected.

Hugo Boss reveals its first Android Wear watch, the Touch

So it turns out that there's this big watch convention thing going on in Switzerland (hint: we didn't go), where a lot of smartwatches have debuted. Baselworld 2017 has been a hub of timepiece activity, with us seeing plenty of new entrants into the Android Wear fold. One of these is Hugo Boss with the Touch.

Diesel announces the On, its first Android Wear smartwatch, will start at $325

The Fossil Group has just announced a ton of new Android Wear-based smartwatches at the Baselworld 2017 watch show, and the Diesel On is one of them. Although Diesel has made hybrid watches before, the On is Diesel's first Android Wear device. It's a pretty unique-looking one, too. Unfortunately, the press release is incredibly hollow, with little information, only one image, and nonsensical phrases. It's so bad that it's actually kinda hilarious.

Misfit Vapor will run Android Wear 2.0, is one of the platform's best smartwatches yet at $199 [Updated]

The Misfit Vapor was announced in January at CES 2017 as the wearable company's first touchscreen smartwatch. But the specs left many of us scratching our heads: Snapdragon Wear 2100, 4GB of memory, heart rate sensor, GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, microphone, 2-day battery life... those looked an awful lot like other Android Wear watches. But Misfit was mum. It didn't demo the watch a lot and the few hands-on we saw depicted an OS that didn't look like Wear. So we moved on.

Samsung is adding an LTE Gear S3 Classic to its smartwatch lineup

The Gear S3 Classic is probably one of my favorite smartwatches to date. The styling is great, Tizen isn't half-bad, and the rotating bezel is awesome. The only bummer for some was that Classic did not share the LTE connectivity option with its brother, the Frontier. Samsung has decided to rectify that, having just announced that the Classic will have an LTE-enabled version.

An independent source has exclusively filled us in on the details of ZTE's upcoming and first Android Wear smartwatch, Quartz. We last heard about this watch when it passed through the FCC in February, but we now have some more information, and even a few pictures of it up-close.

LG Watch Sport review: The right smartwatch for the wrong audience

Google and LG set out to build a pair of watches to launch Android Wear 2.0. What resulted were two wildly divergent products that make no attempt to hit the middle ground. Richard reviewed the Watch Style, which features a lithe frame but includes fewer features than almost any Wear-based smartwatch that came before it. I'm looking at the Watch Sport, an unapologetically huge device with a wide array of capabilities that allow it to be a serviceable stand-in when you leave your phone behind. LG held nothing back with this watch, but it's not right for everyone.
