In response to requests, we put together a list that brings together the best cheap smartwatches to buy in 2017. The smartwatches listed here are the ones that really have quality and utility for the consumer, so we left out some pitfalls that we will please comment below. .

It is worth remembering that all imported products are subject to taxation. There are many cases where smartwatches are not taxed, but this is not the rule. OK?

– Important tip: Avoid very cheap smartwatches like U8 and GT8

Did you find a Smartwatch for R$30 to R$40 reais? You can believe that you are purchasing a toy that will soon break the unstick.

I've had some of these toys like the U8 and they are very low quality products. I have already received two of these cheap smartwatches and they just stop working after a few months. These are products that do not come with Android, and the synchronization is lousy, with little content being shown on the screen. A good smartwatch costs range from BRL 300 to BRL 400.

We will also leave aside, in this article, some smartbands such as the Xiaomi Mi Band 2. Despite the good quality, it does not display notifications satisfactorily, and is in another category.

Finow X5 Air (The Most Powerful Smartwatch of 2017)


The main problem for those looking for a cheap smartwatch is to come across products that are actually smartbands disguised as smartwatches.


The Finow X5 Air, thankfully, is a “thoroughbred” smartwatch that comes with Android wear. It makes it possible to install applications on it. In other words, it does the same thing as the more expensive models on the market like Samsung's Gear S3.

Price ranging from R$350 to R$400 reais

DOMINO DM98 (smartwatch with 2.2 inch screen)

In Chinese import stores, you will find a wide variety of very similar smartwatches. The best are mentioned above.

But let's go a little out of the ordinary and introduce this monstrosity called DOMINO DM98. Suitable for geeks who aren't afraid to wear something more “edgy”, this DOMINO DM98 has a 2.2-inch display and literally feels like a TV on your wrist.

More than that. It is literally a smartphone with a bracelet and even allows video conferencing. Of course, with this, the battery runs out very quickly. But in normal use, the DOMINO DM98 does well and guarantees a smooth day of use.

However, it is necessary to pay attention to its settings, which are already a little outdated. Still, the device supports several applications.
