In Pictures: 11 of Today's (and Tomorrow's) Hottest Smartwatches

Smartwatches are the 'it' gadgets this summer, and they'll only get hotter as notable new devices become available. Here's a look at the best smartwatches on the market, plus a few that are rumored to be on the way.

Today's smartwatches are like early cellphones: big, clunky, overpriced and underpowered. A recent Fixya report inventoried the product category's many problems, ranging from "untrustworthy batteries, to troublesome speakers and unresponsive /no voice controls, to more obvious problems like screen notification issues and a serious lack of real estate."

And yet, admit it; you're curious. Maybe you already bought a smartwatch or plan to soon. Perhaps you think it's only a matter of time before the kinks are worked out -- or Apple releases its rumored watch and blows the competition away.

Here's a look at the hottest smartwatches released since the summer of 2013, when we released our last report, as well as a notable few that should debut later this year.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
