After months of waiting, Motorola finally launched its Moto 360 smartwatch . At the time we first learned of the event, the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear 2 were its most serious competitors. In just a few short months, the landscape has completely shifted, making way for Samsung and LG’s latest, the also-round LG G Watch R and the enormous, curved Samsung Gear S — both of which also launched the same week.

While Samsung and LG have the distribution and marketing clout to give the Moto 360 the chase, these aren’t the only watches to keep an eye on. An explosion of smartwatch activity means that Sony and Asus also unveiled their wares, and Apple’s iWatch is expected to debut within days.

For smartwatch supporters, this kind of development and competition couldn’t happen fast enough.
