Smartwatches don’t have to cost the earth. The Omate Rise will set you back just £139, and even takes its own SIM card for making calls.
It looks more functional than fashionable, but we quite it in a rugged, outdoorsy kind of way. It’s water resistant to 1ATM, has a polycarbonate case and carbon fibre bezel. If you don’t like the strap, just swap it out, as it takes standard 22mm interchangeable straps.
Despite running Android, it will also sync to your iPhone.

The screen is 1.3-inches in diameter, and has a resolution of 360×360 pixels. There’s no ‘flat tyre’ at the bottom, like the Moto 360. It’s powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A7 processor, and an ARM Mali-400 MP GPU.
It’s only just gone live on Indiegogo, but is limited to just a couple of days, so you’d better be quick. If you pledge your cash, it can be yours come March next year.
