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.
