I recently bought the Lenovo HW01 smart band, and I've been surprised by how much I've liked it - but I've come to realise it's about 80% of the way towards what I want from a smartwatch /band device...
My ideal device would probably look more like the Lenovo or similar bands - small, discreet rectangular things rather than the big round ostentatious watch types - and basically be very similar, except instead of just showing a basic notification icon when a message came in, you'd be able to tap a button /the screen to read the notification on screen. Like a wrist-mounted pager I guess!
The Lenovo band only cost me £15, but I'd be willing to spend double or more for the right device.
The likeliest candidate I've seen so far is the Martian notifier watch, but I was put off by reviews saying it was quite big and the glass was actually very scratchable plastic (also - it's 3 years old now and I can't believe times haven't moved on).
Any recommendations / suggestions?
