The pebble to go with my note 3.


Really, not the Galaxy Gear to match your Note?


That is my combo, but I want galaxy gear


anyone know which smartwatch the second one from the top of that pile is?

the all black one with analog face and teal hour markers....


I may be mistaken, but I believe that's the COOKOO smartwatch. The COOKOO and Pebble were the pioneers of smartwatches.


preciate it!

but now that they released the Cogito, that's the one I would want! The black strap/green face, or white strap/black face...

I feel like these more natural-looking smartwatches will do for smartwatches what natural-looking hybrids did in the mid-2000's... make the category more accessible and socially acceptable.


That's exactly what I was going to say. Pebble please :)


I'm trying to start new in 2014, just like BlackBerry is. Heading to a new continent and really want to be able to start fresh with a new Z30 and a Pebble SmartWatch to go along with it. Like BlackBerry, I've been having a tough financial and reputational situation lately...really want to reinvent myself along with my favourite Smartphone manufacturer!

Very difficult to purchase a Pebble where I live...also, they're pricey. Also, starting to learn to develop for BB10 and if I got a pebble, I would be able to start working on an app that integrates some more with the Pebble.


Very cool, love my Blackberry, but a smartwatch would be cool.


I'd love to score a Pebble. I feel that it's the only smartwatch that pulls it off aesthetically.


I'll go for The Pebble since its compatible with ALL android phones not like the gear and looks much batter!


I'd love to win a pebble. I think that's the one that works best with bb10


Well done on the site, has to be the pebble, seems to be the thing now amongst the circle of folks I follow, big watch fan myself.


Would love to win a Toq. The display looks very interesting.


Got a pebble but my brother has a galaxy gear and I'd love one!


Would love to have a Galaxy Gear, I guess developing for it will be fun.


Galaxy Gear ftw... It has a pretty big dev community around it so hopefully it will become more and more useful.


I just got a Pebble this week but REALLY want to try out the Toq or Gear.


I want to win the pebble smart watch. It will go best with my BlackBerry Z10


I will take a smartwatch that is made by either Microsoft or Nokia when they arrive. it has to be compatible with my Windows Phone


I'd like Qualcomm Toq please!

Jordan Rector

Galaxy gear would be awesome.


I would love a Pebble! So far I think it is the best one on the market!


I have to admit, It would be pretty cool to own a Galaxy Gear.


The Toq because it looks interesting compared to the others


I want the iWatch and I am sure it will be the best and have the most seamless connection to my other iOS devices.


I'd love the toq! Other than having to cut the band for sizing it looks great!

ryan stead

Id go for the pebble because it has the best reviews and is compatible with all devices

Alexander Martinez1

Sony smart watch 2 its all about android


I would love qualcomm toq


Definitely would have to go with a Pebble (in red?).

James Racanati

Would really love a galaxy gear for my note 3.... Hope I win and start off the new year right =)


I'll take any smartphone that connects to my  Q10


The Pebble does, via the Talk2Watch or the pBBl apps.


I'd love to get a Toq. It seems like the most polished user experience for a smart watch.


Congrats on the new site! Personally, I'd like to have a Pebble since it looks like a regular watch and seems to have the highest chance of supporting Windows Phone in the future. If Nokia is able to come out with a smartwatch, I'd definitely be very interested.

Jason Lee

So far the Toq appears to be the only smart watch that does what I would want a smart watch to do.


I would love a Pebble smart watch so I can leave my smartphone in my pocket, and still get notifications!


I would like a Toq. In my opinion it has potential to be the best. Plus as my first smartwatch I'd want a good one!


congrats on the new site launch Adam! great iniciative.

ill have the pebble. heard a lot of good things when paired up with BB10.


would love the Pebble smartwatch, looks a lot sleeker than the others


I'd like a Pebble, please.


I've tried the pebble and its not for me, so I would choose a galaxy gear. Looks like a good choice since the latest software update.


I'd love a Pebble. It seems to be the only Smartwatch currently worth owning.


I would like to have the Galaxy Gear

Daniel UK

I own a galaxy note 3 and would love to have the galaxy gear smart watch to match. I cannot afford one but think it would be an amazing combination and see how they work with each other.


I have a Pebble and my wife says she needs one too. I want a white Pebble for her


A pebble to go with my z10, bought one for my other half for Christmas can't afford one for myself!


Any watch would be nice but a Galaxy watch would be pretty cool.


I will definitely go with the pebble.


I'd love to score a Pebble Steel in matte black, so whether I'm using iOS or Android I can continue using a smartwatch!


I think I would go with the toq. I already have a pebble, and the gear won't work with my iphone, will it?


Tempted to jump in the smart watch game


I don't even know that there is a Smart watch that works with my Lumia 1520, but if there is a watch that works with my device... I'd like that one. :)


I want the qualcomm toq, because of the screen.


I would like the galaxy gear smart watch.


I'd love a pebble to pair with my BlackBerry 10 and/or my Samsung galaxy s4


Thanks for putting this together Mobile Nations! I'd love to win a Pebble because of its compatability! Thanks again!


I would love a black pebble!!!!


I would like the rumored Google watch... But given it doesn't exist yet I would like the Sony smartwatch 2. I have and like the previous smartwatch, but that proprietary charge cable drives me crazy!


I'd love a Pebble, that's for sure.


Sony Smartwatch 2, wonderful design and Android OS on a watch? Amazing


Yeah, I like the look of the Sony one too. Been curious to know if it would run with BB10 too like the Pebble can.


Congrats Adam on having a site to call your own.

I would take a pebble because Google won't let me have Glass nor could I afford Glass and I need something to keep up with my notifications so I can stop killing my smartphone battery before 2 every day


Would love a Galaxy Gear :) I'd put it to good use that's for sure!


Pebble goes well with a Z10.


Congratulations on the new site, smartwatch 2


I would love a pebble. It would work great with my n5.


Toq, the charging station is ridiculous.


Thanks for making a new exciting site, would love to win The Pebble watch as there is a app in the store ( Pebble Watch Pro) which makes it sort of working with a WP.


A galaxy gear would go great with my new phone.


I would love an iWatch. I'm a runner who uses my iPhone to track runs, but having an iWatch would make it much easier to do that while running. Plus, an iWatch would complement my other Apple devices nicely.


I'd go for the Pebble. It looks good and has all the features I want!


Great idea for a new site! The Galaxy Gear would be a great addition to my S4 and my wrist!


A nice Pebble watch would go perfect with my amazing BlackBerry Z10!!!!


I have an Omate Smartwatch coming (someday), I think of the other ones on the market now, I'd pick a Sony.


I would love to win a Toq for the new year

Kaiser King

I would love a Nexus smartwatch :) but until then I'll settle for a Toq


Yeah a Nexus smartwatch would come in handy


Sony SmartWatch 2 ! Already have the SmartWatch 1 so..


I'd love to win the pebble smartwatch, it's by far the best looking watch that I've ever seen!


Ooooh, I'd love a Qualcomm Toq! Please make it so!


Put me down for the Toq! Thanks for the opportunity!


Galaxy gear for my note 3!


Of the smart watches I know about, I would like to have a Pebble watch!


Would like to win a Pebble


Awesome new site! I'd love to win a Pebble. I have one myself, but I'd love to get one for my wife.


I want a Qualcomm Toq!


Hmm I would probably want to go with the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch. As an Android user, I want one that works with my phone, and since the Gear is Samsung only right now. Toq seems like the right choice. Hope to win this one! Thanks guys for the contest and congrats on the launch of a new site!


I would appreciate the next Gen Galaxy Gear (when it's announced later this year) because I love the Galaxy line, but am not sold on this first model Samsung put out. Thanks for picking me!

Oliver Harris

This website looks awesome. I would love a galaxy gear because it'll look really cool with my s3


I'd absolutely love a Pebble. My wife always laughs at me checking my phone- this way she'd never know!


I would love a pebble.

Frank Siedler

I would love to have the Sony Smartwatch 2, because that watch would run perfectly with my BlackBerry! :-)


Pebble seems to have a pretty good idea of what a smart watch should do. Some good devs cooking apps. And @tnkgrl is their product evangelist!


Ooh please, I want the IWatch. All my tech is apple and the IWatch will undoubtedly work flawlessly like all the other apple devices I own.

Nik Rolls

Seeing as I'm a Windows owner I don't have any choices that will tie into the ecosystem, but the Pebble is my favourite watch aesthetically and is the one I'd go for from this list.

android alchemist

Come on lucky number 7, my baby needs a watch.


Galaxy gear would be my choice because it would be the perfect fit with my galaxy S4 as I am always on the go and need that extra partner in crime when I need to check messages on the fly!


Garmin Fenix, because it does more than just the smart watch stuff.


The Agent Smartwatch would be nice, I think. I don't know of any others that work particularly well with Windows Phone


would absolutely love a pebble to pair with my z10.


I would really enjoy a a pebble for my iphone. I do a lot of running and biking and this would be a perfect companion to run and listen to music and track my progress!


I would love to have a Pebble. Almost purchased a couple times but just haven't. I really would love to have the notification on my wrist especially when exercising. Also Pebble still has a lot of growth. Thanks and glad the site is here.


Sony SmartWatch 2 please. Metal armband if I'm picky because it's the best for me and also the most beautiful. ;-)


Pebble of course since it currently does exist. But if iWatch comes out before this contest is over then the iWatch of course of course, it would run best with my iOS devices.


Well I have an HTC phone so the gear is out for me. Pebble seems to be the most complete at this point. Toq is cool because of the display. I'm getting ready to have a smartq z watch sent to me. An interesting set of features at a user friendly price. Sonostar also looks interesting with the touchscreen e-ink screen.


I would love to get my wrist on a Sony smart watch two. Looks the best and hopefully will work great work my Nexus 5.


The Gear is my choice.


I'd like a pebble watch thank you very much and happy new year


I would definitely love a Pebble to pair with my Moto X!


Sony, because of looks.


Hi. Nice site. I'd love to try the galaxy gear out. I already own a pebble and I love it. I feel nekked without it. I'd like to see what the bigger, colour screen and full android is like on it. :-)


Ill take a pebble!


I have a Pebble, which I love. But I'm looking forward to seeing what, if anything, Apple comes up with. So iWatch for me.


I'd love to win the Smarty Ring if it comes out. It's small and very portable, plus i find smart watches (like the Samsung Galaxy Gear) a bit chunky.


A galaxy gear would be great for the camera but the exclusivity ruins it. Toq seems to be the best choice for me.


Hands down, the Pebble


Would love to try the pebble.


I would love to get the agent smartwatch when it comes not only does it look great but it also will have full support for windows phone which is going to be amazing because I have a Nokia 1520 now and would love a watch that works with it


I'd love a Red Pebble!


I'm gonna say I would like a pebble to go with my Z10 I'm getting this month.

Thanks for the competition.

Rayyan Hussain

I want a Pebble, because I want it to run with my Android Phone, or an Agent smartwatch to work with my WP8

Mike Mathias

whats for windows phone? :)


I'd Love a Sony Smartwatch 2


I like the Pebble, because it has the longest battery life and is the thinnest one (not to mention that it's the cheaper :) )

Oliver Lienhard

The Toq is cool... would like to have one.


I would love to try the MetaWatch out!


Hopefully I win a pebble smartwatch. Heard good things about it.


I would really like the Toq. I have heard great things about it, and would really love to be a part of the SmartWatch community.


A Nice Galaxy Gear would be Awesome. I just saw one in T mobile the other day .... At first I did not think I would like it.... BUT WOW!!! I have grown to like Smart Watches immensely.. They are cool all around


I would like the pebble, being an amputee, i could wear it on my false arm and check my messages on the go without going into my pocket to get my phone, ideal for when I'm carrying shopping ;-)

Kris Simundson

Would love the Toq or a Pebble. Preferable pebble since it'll since better with Windows Phone


Pebble for me please...need the notification functionality to help organize my life.


I also want the Toq!! Because Mirasol finally makes sense!

Patrick Zaucha

Happy New Year! Congratulations on the new site. I would love to be able to get the rumored Microsoft Smartwatch - if it ever does happen.


A toq..cause it would be sweet!


I'd love to win a Pebble (or an iWatch, should one ever be made).


Nice. Thanks for the new site...Pebble please.

Juan Manuel Rodrigues Silva

Hello!!! I have a Pebble (black) and I'm really enjoying it. What I would want? Another Pebble! Another colour. ;)


I would love to win a Pebble! Itsseems to be the most functional and it doesn't require me to run touchwiz! Also I love the B&W eink screen

angry english

To be honest I would love any of these, the Toq intrigues me most but I'd welcome any


Pebble me! Pebble me! Pebble me! I'd love to have a Pebble! It's gonna work great with my Q10. Pebble me! Pebble me! Pebble me!


Would love a Pebble.


Pebble for me. But those Martian look promising.


Yes... great idea. this site will be among my favorites.


I'd like to win the Toq. I like the looks of it over the others and the wireless charging is interesting.


I would like a pebble because I see the ecosystem and feature set growing in 2014.


I wondered if this would happen today after Kevin's tweet last night. I have a love for BlackBerry and iOS. The Qualcomm watch is awesome looking and if there is an iWatch, I would love to rock that. Whichever works for you guys. Great thinking on an upcoming opportunity!


How bout a surface watch


I want the Galaxy Gear!


I would love a Pebble for my Z10. You need to give me a smartwatch so that I have an excuse to visit a smartwatch fansite. :P. Please?


I would like a pebble for my Z30.
Thank you from Italy!


The Gear is my choice.


Galaxy gear for me please!


Sony smartwatch 2 is the way to go for me


I've been wanting a Pebble!


I want the Toq, looks better than the Pebble and I don't have Samsung phone.


I would love the Toq as it seems to have the most potential out of all the current SmartWatches... (^_-)-☆


I would love a Pebble. Keeping it simple while taking care of things.


I think I'll hold out for Apple's foray into this space


I would love a Toq! I hear good things about it.


I'd like the iWatch once it comes out because it would work a lot better with my iPhone than any other smart watch.


I'd like to win the pebble smart watch to go with my blackberry, thanks


I wouldn't mine a galaxy gear


I'd like to give the Toq a whizz


I think I'd go for the toq


Tick, Toq. Welcome to the age of the smartwatch!


I love my pebble can't wait for all the new smart watches this year


Cool site! I want the Pebble.


It would be nice to have Galaxy Gear to go with my Note 3. I have been waiting on a price drop, you can't beat free :-)


I would absolutely love to have a Galaxy Gear, I'm a huge Galaxy fan.


I would like the galaxt gear... Please and thank you. It would come in handy for this year.


Gotta win that Galaxy Gear to go with my Note 3


I already have a Pebble from Kickstarter and I'd love to get one for my son who's in college. Pebble is far from the most expensive smart watch but it does what a smart watch should do and it does it simply and elegantly.


The Pebble is the watch for me, sexy and customizable and now compatible with BB10. Match made in heaven


My preference would be an I watch.

Congratulations on the new site and I am excited.

Miller Keith

Sony Smartwatch 2, because I'm a Sony fanboy!!

Ian Clark1

Awesome site to kick off the new year! I would like the galaxy gear because you can reply to text messages with it using s voice. I feel that's a feature I would use daily on a smart watch.

Zubair Shamz

Samsung galaxy gear! I love it, I intend to take pictures with it on the go! Save voice notes to my Evernote! & to run my phone handsfree with it!


The pebble or whichever works with my Z10 Blackberry!


Can I win a Galaxy Gear? Because I can't afford it after shelling out on 2 note3 lol

da beanster

A pebble watch sounds good. Thank you!


I have a pebble and love it. The Qualcomm Toq is really tugging at me with it's display technology. Seems pretty rad.

Jasper Molina

I would love to get the Galaxy Gear "for free" to partner with my Note 3.


I did post on Crackberry (as did others), but I'm covering both bases. Now, to start looking at what this Smartwatch stuff is all about.


Toq. The name's cool, and it's made by Qualcomm, nuff said


Happy New Year! Would love to try a Pebble.


I've been really digging the Sony Smartwatch 2. Compatible with all Android devices (and hopefully BB10 will jump in with a software update). That's my choice.


I would like to win the Samsung Galaxy Gear!

It's super cool, with a ton of unique features :)

A great idea for a site, definitely bookmarking it!


I have the Pebble... And so far I love it... Would love to try the TOQ!


I would like a black Pebble Smartwatch. Pebble is the one company to do a smartwatch right with plenty of developer support and continuous updates. Also, it helps that it looks pretty good.


Galaxy Gear. I'm a big Samsung Galaxy fan.


I'd love to have the Pebble!

Marcelo Velazquez

I like the minimal approach of the Pebble, that's why I like it. It would be cool to have one for the New Year, hahahaha.

Euan Tan

I wanna try the toq!!


Omate TrueSmart Extreme Edition please. Good luck with the site. When Appe does eventually release the iWatch this market will explode.


I would love to get my hands on a Pebble!!!!!


I would love a Sony smartwatch 2, I saw that video of it working with a BlackBerry z10. Must have!


I think the pebble seems the most useful at this point!


Would love to have a Gear!! :)


SmartWatch 2 here.
The design, oh, the design, it's amazing.


I want a Qualcomm TOQ or Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch since I just broke my Sony SW2 =-/
Happy News Years!


I would love to win a Galaxy Gear if it'll work with my BlackBerry Z10.


It only works with note 3 and galaxy s4


Love to win a Pebble, since it seems to work quite well with BlackBerry 10. I'd love to use it with my Z10.


I would love a black Pebble watch. Thanks so much! (Good job with the new site)
