The issue with smartwatches in general is that they are not typically speaking the most affordable of products. New smartwatches are coming through which does mean the variance of products on offer is expanding, but the actual cost of picking up a new smartwatch does remain relatively high. Of course, there are more affordable options out there and one of them is the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch. NO.1 is a company who has for quite some time now been bringing to market affordable alternatives and the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch is the latest in the line of NO.1 products to come through. This is a smartwatch which is able to be used as a standalone smartwatch and is one which does not come running on Android Wear, but does come running on Android.
In terms of the specs, the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch comes packing a 1.3-inch display. Inside, you can expect to find 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a MediaTek (MTK6580) quad-core processor (clocking at 1.3 GHz). This is a smartwatch which makes use of Bluetooth 4.0 to establish a connection, although it is also one which can make use of its own cellular service thanks to its included SIM-support. While many of the additional sensors you would expect on a smartwatch are on offer, including a heart rate monitor, pedometer and GPS recorder. In terms of the operating system, while this is not Android Wear, it is Android with the inclusion of Android 5.1 (Lollipop), while battery life comes in the form of an included 450 mAh battery. Last but not least, the network connectivity for the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch is listed as GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz and WCDMA: 850/1900/2100 MHz.
Moving on to the price and this is a smartwatch which is available to buy through GearBest for only $131. Which does make it considerably more affordable than most other smartwatches on the market. However, it is also worth mentioning that while this is an affordable product to begin with, it is currently more affordable than usual as leading up to October 5th the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch will be available at a discounted price. How much the discount will be does depend on when you buy. For instance, on September 26th the NO.1 D5+ smartwatch is priced at only $99.99 and from September 27th through to September 30th, the smartwatch will cost $109.99 and then between October 1st and October 5th, the smartwatch will be available for $124.99. So as long as you buy before October 5th then you will save even more on this smartwatch. Although the earlier you buy, the more you will save.
