You have access to GPS, NFC for Google Pay, Bluetooth for listening to music and the top Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, along with a load of other benefits that we’re sure you’ll love, too.

TicWatch GTH |
AU$116.99 AU$73.11 (opens in new tab) (save AU$87.20)
Rather than being a full smartwatch, the TicWatch GTH is more fitness tracker. You’ll get all the features you’d expect from say a Fitbit or a Garmin Vivofit wearable, but at a much more affordable price. The GTH puts sensors on your wrist to monitor your skin temperature, blood oxygen (SpO2) levels, heart rate, respiration rate, and even your sleep quality. All with 10 hours of battery life.
TicPods2 Pro+ |
AU$202.99 AU$101.49 (opens in new tab) (save AU$101.49)
The TicPods 2 Pro+ are the financially-conscious Apple AirPods alternative. You get the form and function of AirPod Pros at half the price, even before this discount! Be prepared to temper your expectations though as they don’t have the same kind of sound fidelity and performance as some of the more premium options on the market. At this price, though, they’ll do quite well as an everyday set.
