Our verdict

For it’s competitive price point ($78.00 AUD) the Kogan Trakdot delivers a lot of function. It would suit someone who is a light technology user interested in having a notification centre on their wrist, rather than someone looking for a more complete package.

There have been some complaints about durability and overall usability, so it is worth checking consumer reviews before you buy. But if you’re looking for a simple smart watch for a low price, this is as good as any.
