After a long winter cooped up inside, many of us are ready to get moving now that spring is just a few weeks away.

Many people turn to smart watches to help them achieve their health and fitness goals, however some popular brands come with a pretty hefty price tag. A smart watch with all the bells and whistles can cost upwards of $500 - which might not fit into everyone's budget.

"This watch is just amazing! It really exceeded my expectations and has so many surprising features. It actually measures your blood pressure with a surprising amount of accuracy. I wouldn't use it as a full on medical device, but for mostly casual checking, it works wonderfully," one shopper wrote. "Also, the GPS features of this watch are spectacular, allowing me to track my walks without having to even bring my phone. The features of this watch easily match smartwatches that cost four times this amount. I totally, without hesitation, recommend this watch!"

"I love the size of my Uwatch3 GPS smartwatch and the accuracy," another wrote. "It's fun to use and reach your daily targets to become a fun daily competition. This is an affordable quality product. I have no problems setting up the app on my phone. By the way the battery in this watch lasts forever Like, maybe charge it once a month! I get all the notifications like texts, calls, messenger etc. Great customer service."

Although 58 per cent of the Uwatch3's customer reviews are five star, some users have pointed out some potential issues. Some shoppers have said that the Uwatch3 takes a while to get used to and has a smaller screen than other smart watches on the market.

Verdict

Smart watches can be a pricey investment. The Uwatch3 is a great way to get used to using a smart watch and fitness tracker before you invest in something from one of the most well known brands with even more features.
