Alcatel OneTouch to reveal new smartwatch line at CES


Alcatel OneTouch may be poised to catch some people off guard at CES 2015 starting next week when they reveal a new line of smartwatches. As you can see from the image above, Alcatel OneTouch has decided to go with a round watch face for their devices along with several different straps. According to Alcatel OneTouch, they were aiming for a traditional watch look and feel for the hardware, which it appears they may have achieved that goal with their new line of Watch devices.

Judging by the image, it looks like the devices will be powered by Android Wear. No details about the specific hardware that is located within the device has been revealed yet, though the images and Alcatel OneTouch’s statement that the devices will “allow users to monitor daily activity” suggest at least some items like pedometers and heartbeat monitors may be present.

Alcatel OneTouch also says they are aiming for what they call a “smart price.” It is not clear exactly what that may mean, but a good guess is that they are aiming at or below other round smartwatches on the market like the Moto 350 or the LG G Watch R.

Just based on the looks, do you think you may be interested in grabbing an Alcatel OneTouch Watch if the price is right? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check back for our CES 2015 coverage starting next week for all the details on this and other devices being announced.
