Consumer Reports Tests Apple Watch for Readability, Water Resistance, Fitness Tracking and More

Consumer Reports has actually crowned the Apple Watch as its top-rated smartwatch in its examination of 11 smartwatch models from 8 manufacturers, including the Asus ZenWatch, LG G Watch R, Moto 360, Pebble Steel, Samsung Gear S and Sony SmartWatch 3.

The not-for-profit company examined the Apple Watch and competing devices for step matter accuracy, display readability, ease of usage, scratch resistance, water resistance, heart rate tracking and more.

In specific, the stainless steel Apple Watch racked up the highest amongst the smartwatches tested due to its high readability in intense and reduced light bulb, convenience of usage, ease of coupleding with an iPhone, resilient scrape resistance, IPX7 water resistance ranking and precise heart rate and step matter monitoring.

At the same time, the Sony SmartWatch 3 finished at the bottom of the rankings, primarily because it fell short the 24-hour water immersion test.
