Martian Notifier Smart Watch: This attractive, colorful analog wristwatch works with select Android and Apple iOS phones. It features an integrated OLED readout that acts as a hands-free gateway to the world, keeping you well informed while your phone remains in a pocket, purse or backpack.
Like This Quite A Bit. Very Nice Alternative to Pebble
I was an early adopter on Kickstarter for the Pebble and long time user, so I’m a big believer in wearable tech. My only issue with the Pebble was its utilitarian appearance. Rather than pony up for a Pebble Steel I opted to try the Martian and have been very happy with it.
Simple, comfortable with little to dislike
I received this watch from my wife for Christmas because she knew that I like tech-savvy gadgets but without sacrificing the basic functions of a watch. The Notifier is a perfect fit for me because it functions perfectly as a watch. Glance at it to get the time. The inclusion of the OLED display, a simple LED light, and a vibration motor is what places this watch above the rest. Most of us shopping for smartwatches understand that the Pebble certainly defined the category. The Notifier features similar functionality without having the extra ability of running apps on the watch itself. I paired this up with my iPhone 5 without an issue using the simple instructions included with the watch.
Great watch; great price
If you’re looking for a fully functional smart watch, keep looking. Martian has a higher end product that might fit the bill. If you’re looking for an introductory smart watch that also is a fully functional, nice looking, durable watch, then this is the way to go. Battery life seems to be very good. I’m getting a full week of normal use between charges. The “tap” to recall the last notification doesn’t seem to work, but that’s not a particularly important feature for me. Make sure you update to the newest version (through their website) once you get your watch – easy to follow instructions and it’s a fairly quick process. I had been looking at smart watches for about 8 months and just wasn’t ready to sink $200+ into a watch that looked like a small computer on my wrist. I wanted a watch that also told me who was calling me, that would give me who was texting me and the content of the text and an occasional baseball or football score for less money than a typical “sports” watch. I found everything I was looking for and more with the Martian Notifier.
Surprised by the functionality in low cost watch
I was skeptical when I bought this, but I got it on sale for $37 so I took a chance.
A great notifier, if that’s all you need.
I didn’t need or want a fitness watch, but was more interested in a watch that allowed for a quick glance for the time using an analogue face watch as well as receiving notifications, hence I have been looking for hybrid smartwatches. I have been quite impressed at the simplicity of the Notifier.
Good looking, simple, functional smartwatch. Just be careful what company you buy it from.
If you are looking for a smart watch with styling similar to a regular watch, this is your watch. While I like the features of other smart watches I was not a fan of their unusual look. I didn’t want to draw attentions to myself by having the whole watch face light up every time I just wanted to check the time. This one does light up when you get a notification, but it’s only a small part of the watch face and not the whole thing. You also don’t need to see the whole watch face light up just to check the time. Being discrete means you give up some functionality, but you still get caller ID, texts, e-mails, and many other alerts if you choose by using the app. I use one of these with my Android phone and my wife uses one with her iPhone. It works great with either system. My only caution is, be careful buying the ones listed by third-party sellers at insanely low prices. I bought mine from Amazon for $80 and have had no problems. I bought my wife’s at a lower price from a third party Amazon retailer. The battery in her’s was no good and had to be replaced by Martian, which ate up the savings and required shipping it to them. I do have to say that Martian’s customer service was excellent though.
Simple, impressive and good value for money
Just got this watch so my observations thus far are based on a few hours use. I will update once I have used it for a while.
I’ve only had this for a few days so keep that in mind as well as I use this on an Android phone.
