Pebble Smartwatch

Who makes it: Pebble

What it costs: $150

Why we like it: Want to dip your toe (or wrist) into the coming era of smartwatches and wearable tech? You could invest $300 in Samsung's color touch-screen Galaxy Gear and grow frustrated with its many flaws, like having to hold the watchband buckle to your ear to hear a call in a noisy room. Or you can spend half that much for the monochrome Pebble. It doesn't try to do nearly as much, but what it does -- letting you read e-mail and texts, see incoming calls, run some apps and tell time -- it does better.
