We just wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the other devices we reviewed.
MyKi Kids Watch and GPS Tracker
One type of smartwatch that has grown incredibly popular, are kid-themed watches equipped with GPS for location tracking.
It makes sense why. Children get a watch with a few fun features, and parents can keep track of their whereabouts at all times.
The MyKi is one such device; available in several colors, blue/green, pink/yellow, and red/blue. It includes a bevy of features such as accurate location tracking, physical activity monitoring, and sleep analysis. Once synced, you can monitor the device from Android, iOS, and Windows Phone, as well as PC and Mac computers.

No 1 D6 Smartwatch
Most brand-name smartwatches are expensive – they cost in excess of $150. If you’re not sold on the technology – or you just want something cheap – there are generic options. The problem is, most generic options are manufactured by no-name Chinese brands. If you don’t have experience with them, you might be disappointed to know that a lot of these generic electronics are not reliable.
So, we reviewed several including the No 1 D6 smartwatch to find out if they are worth the money or not. You’ll be happy to know that they do indeed make great watches for first timers and anyone on a budget.
You will have to make some sacrifices. For instance, the No 1 D6 battery only lasts for about a day on a single charge. It does offer a whole slew of convenient features for the price, however.
You can receive remote notifications, take or place calls, and browse the web. Plus, the D6 is running a full version of Android 5.1 and has access to Google Play. This means you can install virtually any app on it and unlock its full potential.
Let’s say you don’t like the stock fitness monitor, you can just install something like Runkeeper or Google Fit.
The D6 works great, and it looks great too! Check out our wearable reviews section to see a more in-depth analysis of the device.
