Wear Weekly: Smartwatch Choices for Mother's Day


Mother's Day is, for a lot of people around the world, just around the corner which means that there's not much time to pick up a gift, but there is still some time. Especially if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, or don't mind paying a little extra for quicker delivery. Smartwatches have become more and more fashionable over the past couple of years, but it's still quite difficult to find something that suits a woman's wrist. Many of us will have been in a situation where women have admired our watches, but find them either too big or a little too masculine. Of course, there's nothing to say that the women in your life have to way watches designed for women, but there are smaller sizes and nicer designs that will appeal to your Mom or your Wife this Mother's Day, so let's take a look at some last-minute Mother's Day smartwatches.

Moto 360 – 42mm
Moto 360 Ladies
What's nice about the Moto 360 is that it's customizable, and it allows men and women alike to choose their perfect style. In the case of the ladies in our lives, the Moto 360, in its 42mm size "Designed for Women", Motorola have all sorts of colors including Rose Gold, Gold and Silver. It also has some bezel choices and metal and leather straps, including the double-wrap option shown above. These make a great gift, and there's nothing to say that you can't go for the "Men's" option here, but it will limit the choices of bands available.

Huawei Watch

The Huawei Watch is one of the best Android Wear watches on the market, and they recently launched their Jewel and Elegant options for women. This includes gold casings with either a knurl design (as with the Elegant pictured above) or Swarovski Crystals around the bezels. There's some more ladylike leather bands here as well, but users can use whichever band they like thanks to a standard watch fitting. With the ability to make and take phone calls from the watch itself, the Huawei Watch is a great option, but it is really quite pricey compared to others out there. It should also be noted that this is a fairly thick watch on the wrist, but otherwise it's a real looker.

ASUS ZenWatch 2
ZenWatch 2 Gold
The ZenWatch 2 is a great option for those that are looking for an affordable option as well as something that looks a little more modern, too. This is the smaller version of the ZenWatch 2 that doesn't have the phone calling feature, but it's a little smaller, a little lighter and so on. There are a number of different bands and casings available for the ZenWatch 2, but the one we've chosen here is the Rose Gold option with a fetching orange band. It's a good-looking watch, and something that we enjoyed when we reviewed it last year, too.
