TBC (ex­pected to be £80-£ 100) al­catelone­

This smart­watch isn’t avail­able in the UK yet but is likely to be much cheaper than most other op­tions. It’s per­haps sur­pris­ing, then, that it’s one of the more stylish choices avail­able. The other great thing about the One­touch is that its pro­pri­etary soft­ware works with both An­droid and iPhone, mak­ing it an at­trac­tive op­tion

for Ap­ple users who don’t want to wait for the Ap­ple Watch – or shell out for it once it ar­rives. This soft­ware means you’ll have to make do with the stock se­lec­tion of apps, but th­ese in­clude a heart rate mon­i­tor and al­time­ter for your fit­ness needs. The only no­tice­able gap in func­tion­al­ity is that you can’t use the watch to re­ply di­rectly to no­ti­fi­ca­tions sent from your phone, although – aside from

be­ing able to show off to your mates – its de­bat­able how nec­es­sary this is. A stan­dard USB plug hid­den in the strap lets you charge the One­touch Watch, which means you won’t have to worry about car­ry­ing a charger. If you’re on a bud­get or us­ing an iPhone,

this is cer­tainly a stylish and af­ford­able op­tion for fit­ness track­ing.
