Consumer Reports Names Apple Watch the Top Rated Smartwatch [VIDEO]

Just over a week ago Consumer Reports released their initial preview of Apple Watch after undergoing their scratch test.

Now, the non-profit organization has released their final Apple Watch test results and how it fares against competitors such as the Asus Zen, LG G Watch R, Martian Notifier, Motorola Moto 360, Pebble Steel, Samsung Gear S and Sony Smartwatch 3.

Tests included putting Apple Watch through a step test, ease of use test, pairing test, water resistance and heart rate sensor tests.

The conclusion by Consumer Reports was that Apple Watch in stainless steel has been rated the top smartwatch, with the Sony Smartwatch 3 being the worst (it failed the water test).
