The Martian mVoice G10 has the trappings of a typical activewear watch. The retro-military aesthetic, rotating bezel, and IPX4 water resistance are common features to expect in a modern timepiece. But the combination of smart features and analog reliability stand out.

Instead of contending with the Apple Watch and Android Wear offerings, the mVoice goes a much simpler route. A discreet 96 x 16 pixel OLED face display communicates notifications and incoming calls, and the built-in microphone enables voice communication with your phone’s digital assistant (i.e. Siri and Google). The mVoice is one of the few smartwatches on the market also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa.

The biggest caveat to wearing a smartwatch has always been the unexceptional battery life, often requiring daily charging. Because of its minimal display, the Martian mVoice delivers five days of smart feature use. Beyond that, a standard analog watch battery keeps it ticking for up to 2 years. For a limited time, it is on sale for 49% off, just $149.99.
