The smart watch crashes the nerd barrier

Networked watches used to be a joke. The only people I know with them today are still techies, but Apple's Watch series seems to have broken doown the nerd barrier.

It also rates at the top of nine smart watches tested by Que choisir for its January edition. But the Series 2 will cost you CHF419. Of course, you would expect that if you followed Apple products.

Once again, though, it's a lower-placed device that seems the most attractive.

The Asus ZenWatch 2, third-placed and costing CHF189, networks not only wth Android phones but also with iPhones. No 2 is that eternal runner-up, Samsung, with its Gear S2 for CHF230.
