• Apple Smartwatch: Here's a doozy of a price for you at a present value of $649.00. Maybe a bit too pricy? Possibly.

This device has 38mm stainless steel casing, contains an awesome fitness tracker, large number of apps and an excellent messaging system. The only real complaint of this product is that the battery life is only a little more than a day, which considering the other options on the market, is not too bad of a deal.
