If you havenâ€™t heard of the Martian Notifier Smartwatch, itâ€™s an interesting collision of wearable wonderment. More than a watch, but not quite a smartwatch, this device strikes a nice balance for someone who might be interested in experimenting with smartwatch capabilities without breaking the bank. And now thatâ€™s more true than ever.
The Martian Notifier originally launched for $129.99, but today you can grab it for $30. But what is this alien beastie, and why would you want one?
At first glance, this watch appears to be nothing more than that: a standard analog timepiece sleek and stylish enough to dazzle up your wrist. But closer inspection reveals a 1.5-inch OLED display running across the bottom. Clever readers may have deduced from the deviceâ€™s name that this screen is used to display notification from your smartphone.
The screen is only 96 x 16 pixels, so youâ€™re not going to get the kind of full app integration that you might with more expensive smartwatches. You will, however, be kept abreast of text messages, phone calls, social media posts, fitness stats, headlines from publications that youâ€™re subscribed toâ€¦ essentially anything that might elicit a buzz from your smartphone can now be read in a glance on your Martian Notifier Smartwatch.
You can also use it to snap pictures from your phone remotely, and if you happen to lose your phone, a few taps on your wrist can make it ring. The Martian Notifier Smartwatch also comes with local weather update capabilities to let you know if you should break out an umbrella.
A perfect gift option going into the holiday season, the Martian Notifier Smartwatch now usually retails in the $50-$60 range. With todayâ€™s deal, you can snag it for the same price that you would normally expect to get it used – $30 – and Tech Deals is even offering free shipping in the US. Youâ€™ll have to act quickly, however, because this deal appears to only last today.
