How To Pick The Perfect Smartwatch On A Budget
August 4, 2016 (No Comments) by theSharpeUser

If you are in the market for a smart watch then you will probably have noticed that, like all products in this area they vary wildly in price. You can really spend what you want and as far as brands go then you are not lacking choice in this department either. With the usual suspects like Apple and Samsung in the mix and long standing watch makers such as Tag Heuer not wanting to miss out on the smart watch boom, you are not lacking choice if you are looking to invest. If you are looking to get a good watch at on a budget then look no further because we have got you covered.

Martian Notifier

Martian Notifier smartwatch

Yes the name and brand are probably new to you but the price of this Martian Notifier certainly makes things interesting. Compatible with Android and iOS, the Notifier mixes an analogue face with a small OLED screen, which displays messages and calls. While the screen is a little small, you can customise vibration patterns to identify callers. Yes it’s a bit old now, but for the price, who can argue? They are available for around  €30 and can be purchased from the links below. Who would have thought eh?

€ 30.00, martianwatches.com | Amazon

 Asus ZenWatch 2

Asus ZenWatch 2

Designed to sit at the budget end of the smartwatch market, the Asus ZenWatch 2 does very little wrong. It’s not challenging the big guns such as the Gear S2, Apple Watch or Huawei Watch in any respect, but with all the latest Android Wear features and a slim, sleek build, it’s a bargain for the price.

€111.49, asus.com | Amazon

 Sony SmartWatch 3

Sony SmartWatch 3

Possibly the best value for money option on the list. You can get the features of the top tier watches at a fraction of the price. First up, it’s got full GPS tracking for all your fitness needs, then you’ll find its got NFC for all your Google Wallet contactless payments and finally it’s got a 2-day-plus battery life that actually delivers. Launched in early 2015, it’s practically right off the shelf. Get it while it’s hot.

€123.82, sonymobile.com Amazon 

Pebble

 The original Pebble first appeared at the start of 2013 on the back of what was at the time the most successful Kickstarter ever. It supports both Android and iOS, comes with a growing pile of apps and watch faces, and can last a week on a single battery charge. It might be getting on a bit in gadget years, with the Pebble Time taking the headlines, but the device that ushered in the era of the smartwatch still has a lot going for it, and the e-ink screen is a boon for battery life.

Samsung Gear Live

Samsung Gear Live

Right out of the first batch of Android Wear watches is the Samsung Gear Live, and it’s still worth a look for bargain hunters. While Android Wear watches are now in their third generation, updates haven’t left older smartwatches behind. However, if you are thinking about last-gen tech, then maybe look at the Asus ZenWatch 2 for almost the same price. Sorry Europeans/Brexiters, it’s US only.

€105.24, samsung.com | Amazon

LG G Watch

LG G Watch

LG’s G Watch has been usurped not once but twice by the G Watch R and theWatch Urbane. But if you’re happy to settle for a rectangular screen and basic functionality, it’s now pretty good value. The cut-price deal still leaves you cash to splash on a stainless steel strap, which will glam the G Watch up no end.

€80.85, lg.com | Amazon
