    Anyone know of any new smartwatches that are coming out soon that can be used with an iPhone?

    I know of a one watch that works with the iPhone that has been released since last year but not very resourceful. There are no new smart watches for iPhone other then the Apple Watch. The Pebble app has not been approved by Apple so in my opinion, Apple Watch will be the only smart watch choice for iPhones.

    Hi.
    I'm using the Alcatel OneTouch smartwatch on my iPhone 5s.
    It's compatible with Android and iOS respectively and it works like a charm.
    Battery lasts somewhere in between 2-4 days on a single charge. It has basic functions and you also receive notifications on incoming calls, messages, mails etc. Google it.
    But the deal breaker for me was the battery, it lasts so much more than Apple Watch.

    I agree battery is huge for me as well when it comes to smart watches or fitness trackers. I actually got rid of one because I would take it off to charge it and forget to put it on before I left. So now I switched to one that has less functionality but uses a replaceable battery and only needs to be replaced once every 4-6 months. Since it's not considered a smart watch I won't mention it but I just wanted to comment specifically on the battery part of your post.

    The Pebble is another option. I had one until I got the Apple Watch. The main problem with it is that the watch is extremely limited in what it can do. You can't act on anything, i.e. replying to messages, deleting/flagging emails, or use voice dictation.
