Publication Date: 9/18/18 – Did you know there are now quite a few affordable Alexa smart watches available from Guess and Martian Watch? They all tether to your existing Android or Apple smart phone, so there’s no need to sign up for any additional data or cell plan.

Martian Options: From Under $70
