It looks like the wearable tech revolution is finally under way. After years of undelivered promise it seems that suddenly everyone has a smart watch either in production or in the pipeline. After an initial batch of uninspiring rectangular slabs with straps on them we're finally starting to see a little thought go into the styling, and while I'd convinced myself that this was because we were finally seeing round watches replace rectangular ones, my first sight of the Asus Zenwatch reminded me that rectangular can be sexy too.

Motorola certainly warmed the bed with their undoubtedly classy Moto 360 but it seems LG have now climbed into that bed and stole the duvet. The G Watch R trumps the Moto360 in almost every area yet despite this some people still prefer the 360 and that should prove to anybody planning to release a smart watch just how important styling is.

Of course we're never going to see a smartwatch design that everybody loves much as you never find a dumb watch design that everyone loves, but if it's just plain ugly you won't even get a died-in-the-wool geek to open his or her wallet no matter what it can do.
