Smartwatches have become the most sought after and purchased pieces of wearable tech on the market — and Apple Watches, in particular, have proven to be front-runners.

Counterpoint Research has estimated that Apple’s share of smartwatch revenue in the first half of 2020, alone, saw a 51.5 percent increase when compared to the first half of 2019. More specifically the Apple Watch Series 5 model, which retails for $429, has been dubbed the most popular smartwatch of 2020. The older Apple Watch Series 3 stands as the second most popular and is now sold for as low as $199.

With these honestly unsurprising stats in mind, it’s safe to say that Apple has been dominating the wearable tech market. But, let’s be honest: most of us can’t or aren’t willing to shell out hundreds of dollars for the latest and greatest wearable tech releases.

For those who are seeking the benefits, features and sleek design of a luxe smartwatch while sticking to a strict budget (we’re talking as low as $24), we’ve listed eight of our favorite options.

And for added convenience, each item featured is available on Amazon and is confirmed as a best seller and/or a customer-favorite pick that boasts a rating of 4.1 stars out of five or above. Check them all out below.
