    What is interesting about this smartwatch and sets it apart from others is that it uses a non-Charging, replaceable CR2430 Battery which of course means that there is no charging required however it does mean that the battery would need to be replaced are it is depleted. A lot of watches have activity tracking features now and if a smartwatch or hybrid watch wants to make it in the world of digital watches it needs some form of activity / sport tracking.

    Like most smartwatches you need to be sure to check the compatibility with your phone before purchasing as the last thing you want is to receive one and not be able to use it. The system requirements for the model pictured above are Android Devices 4.4+, iOS 8.2+/iPhone 5+ and the phone needs to have Bluetooth smart as it uses Bluetooth Smart Enabled / 4.1 Low Energy for its connectivity to your phone.

    There are ultrawides, and then there are ultrawides. The Samsung CRG9 falls into that latter camp by emulating twin 27-inch, 1440p monitors in a single curved panel. The wraparound isn't just for immersive purposes. When you've got this much screen to work with, having it curve around into your peripherals actually means you don't need to turn your head as much!

    But don't let a little neck rotation put you off what is one of the most stunning gaming displays ever seen. Packed within that 49-inch display are over seven million pixels (5,120 x 1,440 resolution) for extreme detail and expansive views, whether you're playing an overarching strategy game, or a close-to-the-action shooter or RPG.

    It also ticks the high-speed gaming boxes with its refresh rate of 120Hz (if you have a graphics card that can handle the higher frame rates) and with a brightness that can reach 1000 nits, this monitor is a fantastic HDR solution for games and movies. It's also compatible with both G-Sync and Freesync, so whether you're an AMD or Nvidia fan, you'll get a gaming experience that is stutter and tearing-free.

    Most reviews suggest some color tweaking out of the box is necessary to make the most of this display, but how you do that and by how much will depend on your personal preferences. A little time at setup can go a long way though, taking a great display and turning it into something truly special.

    While budget technology always means making some sacrifices, that doesn't mean you end up with a bad experience. Indeed, the ViewSonic XG2402 is a perfect example of that rule. It offers a fantastic 1080p gaming experience, with a 144Hz refresh rate and has full support for AMD's Freesync technology too.

    It has a low response time and low input lag, making this a great display for competitive gaming on a budget. While some displays will slow you down by a few milliseconds, that's not the case with this screen, and it's far cheaper than most, too.
