£159.99

Found 11th JulMade hot 11th Jul
Best price I've ever seen for this watch. I missed the deal last year (Black Froday) when it was £179.99. Last week it was £199.99 now it's droppped to £159.99.

This could be even cheaper with the student discount with £10 off bringing it down to £149.99.

Excellent watch, very classy looking and far nicer than the new Huawei Watch that feels more plastic. This watch also gets Android Wear 2.0.

Android and IOS - One of the first watches powered by Android Wear™ to work with Android & iPhone.
True Watch design - 42mm diameter, the most classic watch size. One watch, many looks, 40+ watch faces at your fingertips.
World's first Android Wear smartwatch with Sapphire Crystal screen, stylish Cold-Forged 316L Stainless Steel and Fine Leather straps available.
Always-On Screen & Voice Interaction - See important details at a glance, without touching your watch, such as social media notifications, all your messages, who's calling and turn by turn navigation instruction.
Fitness Tracking and Heart Rate Monitor - A high-accuracy motion sensor keeps track of your activity and knows when you’re walking, running or climbing.

This purchase qualifies for a £2.99 amazon pantry credit. Also if you take the no rush options you get a £1 credit towards music or apps.

I have this watch and it was the dogs **** until i updated to android wear 2.
I used my watchmaker app to get loads of great Rolex, Omega etc. faces and it looked stunning. Also bought a steel strap from amazon and it looked even better.
Recently it updated to android wear 2 and initially worked perfectly.
I had to reset my phone (S7) after a firmware update and it now refuses to connect to google accounts which means the watch cannot get any apps from your phone, so stuck with the crappy on watch default faces. If you look at android wear reviews on play store you will see loads of reviews stating major bug with AW2.
I would still buy the watch as it is stunning, but do not update it to AW2 when offered the choice. Wait for the major bugs to be fixed.

Hey mate, great deal - just looking at this one myself. Just a heads up - you seem to have two entries for the deal on the site here, you might want to delete the lesser one. Oh and someone will come along shortly to moan about how you haven't mentioned this is an amazon prime day deal so here's a friendly nudge from me to add that to the title of this one

Have some heat for this great deal!

Update on the student 10% discount code. At the time of writing this the "STUDENT10" discount code has been paused and is unusable Hopefully they'll "unpause" it soon!

Supposed to be one of if not the best android watch , personally I'm waiting to see if any are announced end of this year to go along with a nice new phone I'm after

Best android smart watch

No android pay coming to this sadly, otherwise it would be the nuts.

Bought and heated. Nearly bid on ebay for second hand one

Any former pebble owners bought this?

Thanks for that info it will help me when mine arrives. I really appreciate it when someone has constructive advice.

I cannot decide between this or or HW2. I currently have a moto 360 first gen. Is it much of an upgrade?

Its a little faster but looks cheap in the flesh the HW2. The W1 looks miles more impressive

I disagree, it's got a sort of clean look that's been missing since the original moto 360 (except that had the flat tyre display). The most similar thing I can find is the LG G Watch R but that has numbers on the bezel making it a bit cluttered and it's a bit too big.

*edit* also, ignored. You don't seem to be a troll normally but here you're definitely fitting the description.
Easy way to avoid it in future is saying "I think". 'George Washington was actually a pigeon' parses as a statement of fact, 'I think George Washington was actually a pigeon' parses as opinion.

Totally take on board comments about it being cheap looking. I will add that this will be the second W1 watch I will have purchased in the past 8 months. I broke the first :-( And loved it so much I paid the full price from Currys, it came with the silver strap also for £239. Decided to wait for the price to drop and it has.

This is an outstanding smart watch for the money. I got two days operation with mine, Step counting, heart rate, sleep monitoring etc etc. It does not have GPS as some of the more expensive watches or AndroidPay but I generally use my phone for that. As for GPS, if connected via Bluetooth it will track your route using your phone.

You can make and take calls, use google voice to reply to messages. See new alert pop-ups etc.

Personally I think this watch looks very classy, having owned it. It can be won on the wrist on an evening out, at work or in the gym. The newer models all seem more sporty which is fine but I like the chrome/premium look of it.

I've had the Moto 360 1st & 2nd Gen & now the W1, & I much prefer the W1 - looks classy & works great with AW2 for me (I actually like the stock faces). It certainly doesn't feel like 2 year old tech to me

Have you owned the watch? What did you dislike about it and what did you like?

I respect your opinion, however please do not abuse other members for their opinions by referring to them as 'salty' (you have since deleted the comment). We are all here to get good value for money in the spirit of HDUK.

Your opinion of course matters but looking here the majority seems to disagree - so it would be great to know your experience and why you think what you do, rather than a one liner. (_;)

The second generation has GPS and AndridPay as I understand, however the screen is smaller. The battery life I believe is around the same. If the Watch 2 looked like the watch 1, I would be interested. Reviews for the W2 seem good, many saying though it hasn't made as big a hit as the original W1. I would wait for the W2 to come down further as I am sure it is inevitable (black Friday).

I purchased the warehouse deal of this just before midnight for around £120. Says nothing about the watch itself, just the strap is worn but I'll be putting a stainless one on it anyway so Will see what condition the face/case is in.

May be worth having a look at xdadevelopers and seeing if others have had a similar problem. You can downgrade to a previous version of AndroidWear. Have a rummage around the forums here and you should be good to go.

absolute shocking opinion.. probably never seen one in real life!! incredible watch and great bit of kit! built in mic for calls as well!

Have read up on rolling back to 1.5 but reluctant to do so at the moment. Did get the 1.5 apk for my phone but it fores you to upgrade to AW2 before you can pair with watch. Hope they sort it soon as it makes some difference to the watch.

Don't listen to the trolls. This is a quality item and well worth the money at this price.

Jumped on this. Almost pulled the trigger on this at £199.

Will see what it's like tomorrow when it arrives.

I opted for the: Huawei Watch Strap Band - Rerii 18mm Width, Quick Release, Mesh Stainless Steel too.

I've got one of these, had it for about 2-3 months and love it. I bought a new metal strap for it for about £12 and it looks like a nice day to day normal watch but with smart functions and display. The intl down sides are not waterproof and heart rate not a continuous monitor.. other than that I love it!

The packaging this watch comes in in premium rate! I was very very impressed!! For £160 (£40 less than I got one) this is a steal!)

This or the Gear 3?

You come across as queer

Only thing is it has a 1 day and a bit battery life. Having owned many smart watches that would annoy me a lot. Battery life needs to be 4 days minimum. Preferably 7 days.

Well depends - the S3 offers GPS and AndroidPay - so if you want those then go for it. Do keep in mind the S3 runs Tizen, not Android and has less apps available for it as I understand. For some you do need to have a samsung phone I believe, for say, Uber.

I've pondered over this all morning but finally went for it. Worried it's a bit big for a female but I'm sure I'll get used to it!!

Purchased in November for £167.99. Watch is beautiful and I always get asked questions about it.

Android wear 2.0 is a bit buggy on it though. I forced it on and realised I had made a mistake. 1.0 works really smoothly but with 2.0 some of the watch faces don't work and it's started to lag and never responds to voice well anymore.

I'll say ok google about 4 times and it'll finally respond and lag for 5s before I can say more.

Maybe I have too many apps on it but 1.0 had no lag issues with same apps.

I've just bought one myself and wondering if it comes with 1.0 out of the box?

Yes - it should absolutely come with 1.0 or 1.X out of the box. The most recent one that I had to replace my broken W1 had 1.X and I was given the option to update, which I didn't do.
