Alcatel Onetouch Watch review: A cheap smartwatch with training wheels

Jon Phillips | April 16, 2015
It's not a great smartwatch. It's not even a good smartwatch. But it will put notifications and activity-tracking on your wrist, and give you an idea of what smartwatches are all about.

With entry fees for the Android Wear club now hitting $165 for the Moto 360, I can't recommend the Alcatel Watch for Android phone users, unless they're absolutely sure they want nothing to do with Google's always-connected vision. But the Alcatel might be an interesting choice for iPhone users who want a low-commitment taste of what smartwatch notifications are all about.

And who knows, if the Alcatel Watch drops below $100, it might be just too cheap to pass up--assuming aesthetics and deep functionality just aren't your thing.
