In pictures: 14 smartwatches that are here, coming or rumoured

Here's a look at what's available and what's in the works

HOT Watch: Privacy, Please The coming HOT (Hands On Talk) smartwatch is yet another Kickstarter success, having raised more than $211,000 against its $150,000 goal. This smartwatch will enable "private" phone calls; simply raise the watch to your ear to talk and hear your caller, all without your smartphone.

HOT watches (models range from $169 to $249) will sport a touchscreen and sync to any Bluetooth-equipped smartphone, though most features will require an Android or iOS phone. You'll be able to see text, email, Facebook and Twitter updates; weather; stocks; news, and music. Fall detection will use the watch's accelerometer with gyroscope to detect a fall and text your chosen emergency contact, while Proximity Alerts warn you if you've walked off without your phone.

Status: Due in December.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
