Ticwatch S and E (S $200 and E $160) - Impressive and impressively cheap, these watches are cute and do all the basics of Android Wear.

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41 and 45 (41 $1200+ and 45 $1550+) - Tag Heuer's ultra-luxe AW2 watches are in a league of their own—beautiful inside and out, with gorgeous designs and nearly every feature you could want—and that makes a for a price in a league of its own as well. We recommend the Modular 41 (over the 45) for its updated specs, slimmer chassis, and slightly reduced price. Ships with AW2. /r/tagheuer
Moto 360 2nd Gen ($250) - Motorola's last smartwatch looks equally great with a suit and tie or with running clothes and runs AW2 without a hiccup, making it a great alternative to the LG Watch Style. Update to AW2 available now (including Sport model). /r/moto360
