The Apple Watch has beaten off the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and DJI Phantom 3 Pro to grab the title of Gadget of the Year at the prestigious T3 Awards 2015.

Apple swept the board at this year's gadget awards taking four wins including Gadget of the Year, Brand of the Year, Wearable of the Year and Laptop or Tablet of the Year.

With a lineup that included the Apple Watch, new Macbook, iPhone 6 and iPad 2 the Apple offensive was hard to beat.

Taking home arguably the second-largest award of the evening Smartphone of the Year was the exceptional Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

With a curved OLED 2K display, we reviewed the S6 Edge as possibly the best Android smartphone that you can buy today thanks to its next-gen features which include Wireless Charging and Samsung Pay.

The Design Innovation award went to Microsoft's futuristic HoloLens augmented-reality headset which can overlay a digital world over the real one in front of you.

Of course the big winner of the year was a person, and that person was Oculus Rift's Palmer Luckey. The 22-year old received the Outstanding Achievement award for services to the world of virtual reality.

In under a decade Luckey has almost single-handedly evolved his idea from a $2.5m Kickstarter project to a $2bn sale to Facebook.
