Poll results: Which smartwatch platform you consider most likely to prevail?

Poll results: Which smartwatch platform you consider most likely to prevail?
Google announced its new Android Wear platform last week, meant for smartwatches and other wearables, and we thought we'd ask your opinion on which smartwatch platform is likely to ultimately prevail. Granted, we are yet to see what an eventual Apple iWatch will offer, but if the leaked Healthbook app is any indication, it will be a force to be reckoned with.

On the other hand, right now we have Samsung's Galaxy Gear line, powered by the Tizen OS, Sony's SmartWatch line, Pebble's open platform, and Qualcomm's Toq undertaking. That's a lot of smartwatch platforms to choose from, and yet the majority of you (62%) are fans of Android Wear, which makes possible devices like the Moto 360, or the LG G Watch

Apple's iWatch follows with 13%, which is a pretty decent result for something that is only a speculation, with the smorgasbord of other platforms taking a third place. All in all, out of 2282 respondents, Android Wear takes the lion's share of goodwill, and once all smartwatch platforms have tangible representatives, we will probe again to see if there's been a change in perceptions, after the actual product reviews.

Which smartwatch platform you consider most likely to prevail?

Google's Android Wear
62.31%
Apple's eventual iWatch

Other platform (Pebble, Sony SmartWatch, Qualcomm Toq, etc.)

None of them will be a commercial success, smartwatches are unlikely to take off

The 360 would be the first worth-it smartwatch, especially since the smartwatch manufacturers are taking a crapload of money and providing crap.

It is to me, I didn't expect anything else other than Google Wear to get a vote after the Moto 360 announcement.

Wow I didn't expect that result [end sarcasm] Take away all the Apple bashers and fandroid votes and the result would be a lot closer i'd wager..

Android controls 80% of the smartphone market, a majority of the tablet market, but you expect it would be closer? I'll do you one better. If it weren't for all the Google bashers and iFan votes, Google Wear would have gotten over 80% of votes.

Android. Only Android. Others are....... (fill yourself). Lol.

The iWatch will sell simply because of it having the Apple logo. Early return on smart watches I've seen, the Moto 360 from a design perspective is so far above and beyond the competition it's not funny.

I don't understand why the mainstream watchmakers - Seiko, Casio, Fossil, Swatch, Citizen Timex etc are just letting these phonemakers muscle in on their turf. Are they seriously just gonna stand there with their heads in the sand? The only attempt I've seen so far is a Citizen watch that does VERY BASIC notifications: WAKE UP GUYS!

im sure these guys are well aware of the potential threats from apple/Samsung/google. I am pretty sure the big names like casio/fossil/Seiko/Swiss are ready step up their game. I can't wait till see what they have been cooking with Android Wear. though I can't say the same for the swiss/Italian luxury mechanical watch makers. The luxury watch makers seem to believe their brand names are still worthy of their high premium
