    The Apple Watch excels as a remote control and activity tracker, but it's slow and requires a Bluetooth connection to your iPhone, among other quirks. Still, it's hard not to admire a smartwatch this pretty.

    Pros

    • Haptic feedback and force touch gesture work well.
    • Supports Apple Pay even without an iPhone present.
    • Well-designed Activity and Workout apps provide good tracking and motivation.

    Cons

    • No way to hide built-in apps from the home screen.
    • Many apps and glances are slow to load.
