Any smartwatches out there that can pass for a dressy/non geeky watch? Ones that don't look like smartwatches

No
I have the moto 360 and it comes close but still not quite there yet.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

That looks better but to me still looks like a obvious smart watch.

Huawei watch, LG urbane, or even the new 2nd generation Motorola 360

Thanks, the Huawei looks good, but I'm not usually a fan on version 1.0 of anything (except the OnePlus) and its a little pricy for essentially the same features as all other android watches that are significantly cheaper. Either way its only available for pre-order and I want it now
Went with the Urbane

Solid choice. I love croc brown leather band with gold face for the Huawei but can't see myself spending $700 for a smart watch

What's a good watch for a cyclist that syncs with g3?

Looking for a cheap health watch that does what it needs to and displays the time. Any ideas?

Did you ever find a good one? There are so many option.
I'm looking for one too. Minimally something that will give me distance traveled and potentially calculate calorie burn based on time.  Any other smartwatch bells and whistles are nice. Waterproof is nice but not necessary.

First of all it was winter for awile so I stopped my search. Second, they don't seem to moderately make these things. It only a free samsung watch from newegg or and expensive one. No in between.

there seem to be more in between options now, although i think most are for running. for cycling you really need either a gps or one of the ones that attaches to pedals and measures pressure you put on it and distance.

I have had the Huawei for a few months now and I love it. Especially now that Android Wear supports the speaker.
