Huawei recently introduced its new range of smartwatches that have exciting features worthy enough to look into. The Huawei Watch GT is the best one in the new range. The watch has an excellent battery life of 30 days. Hardly any watch out there can compete with it when it comes to battery life.

The new version of the apple watch is the best watch money can buy. Incorporated with watch OS 6 and Apple S5 processor, this watch takes functionality to the next level.
