If you’re on the market for a new smartwatch, the Martian mVoice could be one of the most budget-friendly options out there. Discreet and with a design like a retro Chrono watch, the mVoice costs only $100 on Amazon and adds Alexa connectivity straight from your wrist.
The Martian mVoice can link to your phone for things like push notifications. The built-in speaker and microphone allows you to take calls or simply order Alexa to control your other smart devices. Of course, it’s also compatible with other smart assistants like Siri, Google Assistant, or Cortana. Another great feature is the camera shutter control that lets you push a button to trigger your smartphone camera.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t include a step counter, so if you’re looking for some biometric monitoring, this budget smartwatch might not be for you. Additionally, Martian announced it’s shutting down operations after a failed Kickstarter campaign designed to launch a new smartwatch, meaning new features and functions will likely not be added in the future.
