Being an apple phone user my choices have been limited. I didn't want to spend out on an over priced Apple watch, do I wait for a cheaper and as good product. When I was asked to try and test the Alcatel One Touch SM02 I was thrilled.
The Alcatel Onetouch is a fantastic alternative. It pairs with my iPhone (and Android phones), sports a color display and tracks your heart rate. The design I think is lovely and very trendy for the youngsters among us.
The strap I believe could be made better and with added comfort but that is just a little matter.
The price is fantastic you can buy them on the market from around £80 which is great and with Xmas coming up would make a great present.
The charger has been put right into the wristband, plug it into your computer or USB charger, no cables required, what a fantastic idea.
It has a 210mAh battery which claims can last 2-5 days and it has to be said it lasts a very long time can be charged easily by plugging the end of the strap into a USB port. This watch has also NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 included
You get many people comparing this phone to the devices costing hundreds of pounds more and expecting it to match up. Why not compare it to similarly price wearables and I think it's a great product maybe it's just what your use to.
I could do everything I needed to do with this phone. My main uses were calorie counting, heart rate monitor just keeping up to date with the amount of exercise I was doing on a daily basis, it can get a little addictive if you don't watch it. ( pardon the pun)
I am certainly going too buy a couple for xmas presents affordable and easy to use
Well done Alcatel

There is a USB charging port built into strap which is awesome
The price is great, you can pick them up in the uk from around £80 depending on which model you want
Wrist strap could have been better
Connecting can be a pain, but half of that is do with living in the countryside
The Watch is powered by an STMicroelectronics STM429 chipset and a surprisingly long-lasting 210mAh battery keeps things humming along (the Moto 360 has a 320mAh battery, for comparison'). The screen, while relatively low-res at 240 x 204, is bright enough to withstand some harsh spring sunlight. I'd have loved to see an ambient or auto-brightness mode that kicked the screen into a low-power state so I didn't have to paw at a button whenever I wanted to see the time, but Alcatel was clearly keeping costs down. Even so, there's a gyroscope, altimeter, accelerometer, heart rate monitor and an NFC radio lurking in that 10.5mm thick body; adding a light sensor really would have been great!!!
