    Hi there,

    currently, I am using an apple watch sport 38mm. However, I want to sell the watch and therefore, I am looking for a cheap alternative that fits my requirements.

    The watch has to

    -have a good battery life (2 days minimum)
    -be able to pick up phone calls
    -set timers quick and easily

    That is basically all I need. Most important is the feature to pick up phone calls without pulling the iPhone out of my pocket.

    Any ideas?

    The Microsoft smartband talk actually fits my needs perfectly, but it is not compatible with iOS. Are there any bands with the same features that are compatible with an iPhone?

    Don't know of anything besides the Apple Watch that will allow you to answer calls from an iPhone.

    Look at the Martian Voice Smartwatches:

    I don't know how long the voice versions last, but the non-voice versions go up to a week on a single charge, and the tiny scrolling notification window is surprisingly usable. I often get really great deals buying used ones off eBay, btw.

    (Wow. They have a lot of new case designs.)
