Following the unveiling of its OneTouch smart watch at CES in Las Vegas, Alcatel has announced the watch will be available to buy for £99.99 from mid-June in Currys PC World stores nationwide and online.
Recently awarded an iF Design Award by the iF International Forum Design GmbH, the smart watch is available in a sporty dark red/volcano black combination complete with brushed chrome, micro-textured resin bands and stainless steel.
Sensors include a heart-rate monitor embedded on the underside of the watch face plus an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter and e-compass. The watch also allows users to track their sleep cycle, distance covered, steps taken and calories burned. An activity overview allows users to monitor their fitness goals. When the smartwatch is connected to a smartphone, it sends users call notifications; social media updates and vibrates if users stray too far from their phones.
Compatible with any phone running on Android 4.3 or above and on iOS 7 or above, it is also dust and water-resistant. It also comes with a USB connector integrated into its band.
The watch will be available first from Currys PC World stores nationwide and online (at www.currys.co.uk, www.pcworld.co.uk) for £99.99 from mid-June. Full tech spec of the Alcatel watch are below.
