Smartwatches From Under £100

The theory behind the Smartwatch is that they are not just for you to make calls and speak into them Inspector Gadget style, rather they provide a quick and easy way for you to check what notifications are coming up on your smartphone so you can decide whether to rummage in your bag or your pocket to check the phone itself. Of course smartwatches don't just show notifications of what is happening on your smartphone, they have a whole host of apps within the smartwatch as well, such as camera remotes, music remotes, heart rate monitors, as well as providing you with the ability to read messages and emails etc, making them pretty nifty gadgets!
