£79.89 plus free delivery on eBuyer Look here. I bought one last week and I really like it, though the size has taken a bit of getting used to.

Cool thanks, what's the battery life like?
do these allow you to make/receive a call "knight rider" style? if not any ideas on a decent one that does?

Battery life is great. I usually have about 60% left after a full day
Good price, but it looks huge!
Could you link this to an Amazon Fire phone

No they don't; the only one i know that does is the Samsung Gear S. It's designed with being used standalone in mind (built in speaker and 4G cellular connectivity).

You can speak to most android watches (via the in-built mic) but to hear callers you require a bluetooth headset.
I've been considering this but have decided to wait for the Zenwatch 2. Just out of interest, does anyone know if this version will be supported with Android Wear as well as the Zenwatch 2? One of my concerns with this version is whether support would stop earlier, even though the basic hardware is the same.

​I have one of the £7 u80 smart watches from gearbest and this does allow two way watch only calls but the in call volume is terrible yet playing music is loud?

Sorry I didn't see your post til now. I have my screen set to "not always on" (or something like that) which means that instead of having the screen lit up all the time and you wake it up by touching it when you want to look at the watch (or it comes on automatically to notify of texts, etc). With this setting I've had almost 72 hours on a single charge.
I've just looked at the specs of this and the Zenwatch 2 and they are huge! 51mm and for the original and 49.6 for the 2. By comparison, my Citizen chronograph (which feels pretty big) is 40mm! Even the "ladies" Zenwatch 2 is 45mm. Can someone measure this and confirm because I think I'd struggle with even the ladies 45mm version, which is a big disappointment as I've had my eyes on the Zenwatch.

It appears to be longer rather than wider, if that helps?
No, I'd prefer it to be wider. I think at 51mm it is going to be slighty wider than my wrist

51mm is huge. Even 'big' watches are not usually more than 44 or 45mm case diameter (and usually round so hence diameter, not width or height).
Actually, I have a Casio pro trek and this also is 51mm so I suppose I could probably pull this off. So the question now is do I hold on for the Zen Watch 2 that is slightly smaller, has slightly better battery life, a crown that is used as a button for certain uses, easier and faster charging or save about £50 and go for this. I think my main concern is whether this will be supported as well as the Zen Watch 2.
Seems only currys have the zen watch 2 annoyingly
Bought one of these last week, coming from a very small and light skagen watch. having thought it would probably be a bit too bulky I'm pleasantly surprised that I can go through the day without really noticing it on my wrist. I'll be happy when the technology gets more compact but practically it hasn't been an issue.

Worth noting you can replace the strap with any straight 22mm watch band and it looks great with a metal band.
