    Droid Life Deals has the Martian Notifier for 75% off. That's less than $36 for this watch that retails for around $130.

    The special thing about this watch? It's an analog watch with a small scrolling screen below. The analog portion has a battery said to last up to 2 years. The smartwatch screen portion has its own battery that's been proven to last about 5 days by reviewers.


    For under $40, I'm thinking I'll give this thing a try. I kind of like the idea of a regular analog watch with a bit of added smartwatch functionality. Overall reviews that I've found on YouTube seem favorable, even at the $130 price point. Anybody else game?

    Definitely worth considering at that price! I wish they made a smaller, women's version, would be perfect for my wife.

    I'm more than happy with my Urbane, but I figure this isn't a bad price at all to have another option and to test out something that doesn't run android wear. This works with its own companion app. I'll have to see where we stand with bills on payday this week, but I'm thinking I can afford to play with this device easily.

    Curious to hear what you think of it, if you do buy one.

    Will be happy to share my opinions vs. Android wear if it works out that I can still get the color I want for this discounted price on/after payday.

    IDK that I could justify paying full price on this one.

    Right.....that's why I wear my LG Watch hooked to the next to last clasp from the end...these tiny wrists.

    Let us hear what you think if you do. It'll be at least Thursday before I can order one. 6 days left on the deal.
