Something manufacturers could do realistically speaking anyway would be a good idea to either give a smartwatch free or bundle it with their new devices,this is something we hardly see here and if they want to sell their gadgets this would be a good idea across the board,there is still not a whole lot of traction here and activity/fitness trackers seem to be more popular..



However there is a nice deal on billpay with Meteor now that gives you a nice device and smartwatch in a bundle.They are the Alcatel Idol 3  4.7 inch and Watch.There is an Alcatel Idol 3 5.5 inch so not to get mixed up here on the particular model.


  • 4.7″ Screen
  • 13MP Camera
  • 1.2Ghz Quad Core Processor
  • 8 GB EMMC + 1.5 GB RAM
  • Android 5.0

See more at meteor the good thing is it comes from FREE …. and you are getting a fairly decent phone and smartwatch to get you going… You can also buy the watch separately for just €99.99 here
