It’s not too hard to compare the battery lives of all the Android Wear watches as they all fall somewhere between 1 and 2 days. Nevertheless, we’ve put this guide together and hope you can find the information you’re looking for..

Since it was announced back in March 2014, Android Wear has become the place to be for smartwatches, unless you’re an iPhone user of course. Android Wear is still a work in progress, the latest version 1.3 is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Android Wear smartwatches come with the Google Now voice assistant onboard, and thanks to the last 1.3 update most of them can now connect to wi-fi without being tethered to a smartphone. The update also brought other features such as interactive watch faces, emoji drawing and Google Translate. Also, Google released an app a few months ago that enables iPhone users to pair with Android Wear watches, although features are limited. Like any device, the battery life of a smartwatch depends on usage, such as screen brightness, wi-fi, GPS, etc.

These smartwatches are listed in chronological order based on the time of release – starting with the oldest..

Moto 360

best-smartwatch-android-wear-battery-life-comparison-moto-360-2014

Along with being one of the earliest Android Wear smartwatches, The Moto 360 was the first with a round face. The 360 is a rather bulky beast, and worth investing in purely for its value as a collector’s item…. World’s first circular smartwatch! Gotta carry some fiscal weight for the future of antique technology!

LG G Watch R

LG G Watch R caused quite a buzz among smartwatches. It was the second Android Wear device with a circular display to hit the market, being released about 7 weeks after the Moto 360. The G Watch R was also the first device to bring the look of traditional diving watches to the Android Wear party.

Asus ZenWatch

The Asus ZenWatch with its curved rectangular display is the best looking Android Wear smartwatch in the eyes of many, and well on the way to looking like a premium timepiece.

Sony Smartwatch 3 SWR50

best-smartwatch-android-wear-battery-life-comparison-sony-smartwatch-3-swr50

The Sony Smartwatch 3 has a minimalist rectangular design which receives mixed opinions. Personally I’m a fan of rectangular watches and like how the SWR50 sits on my not overly thick wrist. The SWR50 is still the only Android Wear smartwatch to have an onboard GPS, and despite its screen not being quite as bright and beautiful as the others, it’s probably the most complete Android Wear smartwatch so far, and it won’t break your bank.

 Release Date: November 11th 2014

LG Watch Urbane

best-battery-life-all-android-wear-smartwatches-list-lg-watch-urbane

The LG Watch Urbane is a swanked up version of its predecessor, the G Watch R. Apart from the Urbane being a little lighter and more styled towards the metro male, it’s not so different from its older bro, especially since the Android Wear update brought wi-fi to the G Watch R.

Moto 360 2

The Moto 360 2, or 2nd-gen comes in his and her sizes unlike the original. It was probably the most anticipated smartwatch of 2015, but it still has the “Flat Tyre”. The 360 2 brings some improvements over the original, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor instead of the Texas Instruments OMAP 3 in the original, a better battery life, and the button on the side has been moved up a few degrees to a more logical pressing angle.

Also, coming soon to the Moto family is the GPS-enabled 360 Sport. It has a special reflective LCD display dubbed “Anylight” and brings GPS capability to outdoor activities so runners, cyclists, etc, make the most of popular apps such as Endomondo and RunKeeper.

We don’t have all the specs of the Moto 360 Sport yet, the same goes for the release date although word is it will be sometime before the end of 2015.

Huawei Watch

best-battery-life-all-android-wear-smartwatches-list-huawei-watch

It seems like eons since the Huawei Watch was first unveiled, I suppose it was kind of 8 months ago. Anyway, Huawei are better known for making affordable yet decent smartphones rather than luxury items. When it was unveiled back in March the Huawei Watch caused plenty of hype. It turns out the price is lower than hype suggested despite its high quality build and premium look… Very nice smartwatch..

 Asus ZenWatch 2

The Asus ZenWatch 2 features a power/crown button similar to the Apple Watch, and overall delivers a superior experience to the original ZenWatch. It also has a better battery life and confusingly a lower price. It comes in two sizes, each with a slightly different design. The men’s version is 49 x 41mm in size with a 22mm strap. The women’s version is 45 x 37mm with an 18mm strap. The slight design difference lies in the lug (part of the case that connects to the strap), where the men’s watch is more curved and slightly thicker. Also, the women’s model has a slightly thicker case at 10.4mm, the Men’s model is 9.4mm.

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE

Fossil Q Founder

fossil-q-founder-android-wear-smartwatch-battery-life

Fossil became the second watch brand to release an Android Wear smartwatch, the Fossil Q Founder just a few weeks after the Tag Heuer Connected. Up until the release of the Tag Heuer, Android Wear smartwatches were coming exclusively from tech companies such as LG, Asus, Motorola, etc. Along with a trendy name, the Fossil Q Founder shares a few of the attributes of the Tag; it has the same processor, 1GB of RAM, and virtually the same display apart from the Fossil has the infamous Flat Tire (bit missing from the bottom).

Moto 360 Sport

All Android Wear Smartwatches Moto 360 Sport

The Moto 360 Sport is a brawny version of the Moto 360 2nd-generation. It became the second GPS-enabled Android Wear smartwatch to be released, joining the Sony Smartwatch 3 SWR50. As well as an added GPS, the 360 Sport has a few other differences to its lifestyle inspired relative. It has a more robust build with a special stain-resistant, sweat-wicking, anti-fading UV coating. It has ventilation channels built into the sides to help keep cool. Also different to other Moto 360s is the strap – the Sport being an all-in-one unit so you can’t change it.

The Moto 360 Sport has a special LCD display designed for extra outdoor readability. The new AnyLight display automatically adapts to light conditions and reflects natural light to improve legibility. One thing the new display hasn’t improved on is the notorious Flat Tyre which still roosts the bottom.
