Default What's the best inexpensive Smartwatch?

My family is doing a secret Santa and I drew my bro-in-law. What is the best one for under $100? That is my limit. I saw a G-shock bluetooth, but If there's a better one in my budget fill me in

I'd wait on smartwatches. The current selection leaves a lot to be desired... especially the cheaper ones.

The first Sony Smartwatch is pretty cheap now and is probably a lot more in line with the "smart" aspect than the Gshock. Although the Gshock is probably better at the "watch" aspect.

It's ass ugly though.

Does it have to be a smartwatch? I usually browse this site for ideas when coming up with gifts.

www.thisiswhyimbroke.com

You could also try filtering on amazon or ebay for gifts and $$ signs.

He's more into the Bluetooth aspect. I just figured GShock is more desirable as a brand

I've got the Pebble and really like it. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of an HD screen, built in speaker/mic or voice commands, but the Kindle-esque screen gives it a solid 7 days of battery life.

For $80, it's not a bad deal.
