We get it. You want an Apple Watch, but your wallet is like, “Nah, not for me.” Lucky for you, this active smartwatch could be the answer to your prayers.

The Ticwatch 2 is basically a simpler, more affordable alternative to the Apple Watch. It’s geared toward an active lifestyle, so it can do things like track your heart rate, distance traveled and step count. It can even help you maintain your fitness goals, so you can have a personal motivator on your wrist those days you’d rather stay in bed.

Use it to get an Uber, set reminders, make calls, get text notifications, and pretty much do all the things an Apple Watch can do. Be careful, though, your iPhone might get jealous. This gadget is just as user-friendly as it is functional. Connect it to the included wireless charger for a little over an hour and it’ll be good to go for two days straight.

Expand your horizons and get a smartwatch that actually makes your life easier. Pick up your active smartwatch, available on the Daily Dot store for $169 (regularly $199).
