Ahead of the biggest consumer expo next week, Alcatel, the French mobile handset maker has given us a glimpse at its smartwatch. Company is all set to unveil its smarwatch, which will be called the OneTouch Watch and will be showcased at CES next week.

Details are little scarce at the moment, as company has only revealed the marketing photo of the device and its looks beautiful. As seen in the picture, the smartwatch is rounded shape just like Motorola 360 and the LG G Watch R. While we are yet to see a round shaped smartwatch from Samsung, the companies like Alcatel are coming up with great designs.

The Alcatel One Touch Watch is said to come with the 4 different straps, which all look pretty stylish. Company says that its aim was for traditional look and feel, while the software inside the classy looking shell is packed with watch faces and apps, which have features like monitor daily activities, assuming pedometer and heart rate sensors might be embedded in the device.

The device seems to offer as much as other wearables do, i.e., remote playback control, photo taking, notification checking, etc. Company promises a smart price for the device, and by smart pricing if it meant that it will be affordable than the rest of the costly smartwatches in the market right now, then wearable enthusiast are in for a treat. But it is not clear if the watch will be powered by Android Wear or not.

Though, this is not the first time company announced a smartwatch, as during IFA week, company revealed a watch alongside a Hero 8 handset, which strikingly looks similar to the second watch in the picture above. And if that’s the case, then company has turned its average looking smartwatch into a quite spectacular design. That watch was priced for €99, which roughly translates to $120. So, if that is any hint, then this new smartwatch from Alcatel might be priced in the same window with some few extra bucks for different straps. We will all see that in the coming CES 2015 week, where we will be covering the event live.
