Coming soon from Bluboo, an Android Wear powered smartwatch for $49.99
We've been telling you all about the Bluboo Xtouch, a smartphone priced at $149.99 that offers features found on handsets priced two to three times higher. Now, the manufacturer is looking to shake up pricing in the smartwatch sector by launching its second-generation timepiece, expected to be called the Bluboo Uwatch.

The company already has introduced a sporty Android Wear timepiece called the Bluboo Xwatch, but that device has yet to be released. The Xwatch sports two physical buttons on the side, and a round dial. An optical heart rate sensor appears on the back of the watch. Pricing and availability for that watch has not been announced.

Unlike the Xwatch, the Uwatch has a rectangular dial. It also features a metal build and a capacitive button under the screen. Apparently, Bluboo will have both watches available to be purchased next month, just in time to pick up some holiday sales. At $49.99, the Bluboo Uwatch is most likely the cheapest Android Wear powered watch that you are going to find at the moment.

We have images of both models for you to look at. Simply click on the slideshow below.

Considering Android Wear smart watches have the most variety, and with the top components and materials on the market. Android Wear devices have the largest swing in price points. Not to mention the largest amount of software for a wearable platform.
