We all hate digging through our bags and backpacks to try and find where we left our phones. The smart watch has been an attempt to solve that problem, and MOTA may have the most stylish version yet.

Functionality On Your Wrist

One of the fundamental problems of smart watches is that they try to do far too much. A lot of them attempt to be a second screen for your phone, which is both incredibly ugly and often puts you in the position of talking to your watch in public. That still remains the mark of somebody who is not exactly all there.

Fortunately, the G2 is much more discreet. When it’s not alerting you, it looks like a simple piece of jewelry on your wrist.

Off The Wrist

But, when you do need it, it’s designed to do the job quickly and efficiently. The watch pairs with your phone via Bluetooth and acts much like a Bluetooth headset in some respects. When you get a call, it vibrates and flashes either the name of your contact or a phone number, depending on who’s calling and what you know about them. You can take the call, get on the phone, and get off just as quickly. Think of it as a way to get something answered without needing to paw at your pocket.

Call Of The Bracelet


The nice thing about the G2 is that it’s really designed with one specific purpose in mind; taking and answering calls in a way that doesn’t make you look like an ass. Honestly, that’s all most smart watches really need to do to be useful, and unlike most of them, the MOTA will actually fit in with your style and be discreet when you need it to be. Not bad for $80!
