Moto 360 Sport is dedicated to fitness freaks who want to keep a track of the calories they have burnt while working out. Unlike the regular Moto 360 model that was designed to look cool while doing business, 360 Sport is designed to look slick while working out.

  1. Huawei Watch

This Chinese zombie is the most expensive on our list of cheap smart watch that is android compatible. This device has carved out a niche for itself in the industry for its all round performance. It is worth the price it comes with.

Huawei comes with an outstanding resolution of 400X400 on 1.4 inches AMOLED display. Its PPI is much better than the Apple Watch. Its screen is always on despite hours of inactivity. Its lights will go a bit dim during inactivity hours but you can still watch time on it. If you have a look at its specifications then this cheap smart watch does not really fare well. This Huawei watch does not pack a punch with 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, and a 300mAh battery. Other brands in the market are way more powerful than this beast.

One of the downsides of the watch is that it does not come with a GPS feature. That is disappointing considering the price one has to pay to own this machine. It has a heart rate sensor. You should buy it if you are looking for a really classy and expensive smart watch on your wrist.

Specifications:

Compatibility: Android (Full), iPhone (Limited)

Display: 1.4″ 400 x 400 AMOLED

Processor: Quad-core 1.2 GHz

Charging method: Conductive USB

IP rating: IP67

Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
