I'm looking for a smartwatch, that can record and playback audio, without a phone, as I don't have one.

I'd also prefer that it

  • have an app store, development kit available, e.g. ios, android wear, or tizen make sense
  • < $200
  • vibration support
  • speaker
  • microphone

I find so many of these watches want you to have a phone - e.g. the Pebble Time.

    Would something like a Samsung Gear S2 3g be along the lines of what you are looking for? It has a microphone and a speaker.

I ended up getting an Asus Zenwatch 2, as it has a mic and a speaker, and can record audio on the watch, without a phone nearby.

The app I'm using so far is Watch Recorder with Mic Zoom, which lets you record and playback multiple audio files on the watch without a phone.
