Get the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 + Watch bundle for only $299.99
Those looking to get an affordable handset should really pay attention to today’s deal, as it may also get you a smartwatch for a very low added price. Alcatel is offering its back-to-school bundle for only $299.99, which includes both the OneTouch Idol 3 and the OneTouch Watch.
This proves to be a great deal when you consider these products’ original pricing. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 costs $279.99 (currently marked down to $249.99) and the OneTouch Watch is usually $149.99. This means the back-to-school bundle would save you about $100-$130. Not a bad deal, right?
By the way, you wouldn’t be stuck with a bad smartphone at all. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 happens to be one of the best budget phones of the year. We had a great time reviewing it, and it managed to walk away with an 8.8/10 score.
This handset can perform relatively well. That Snapdragon 615 processor and 2 GB of RAM make it run fast enough to keep the casual users content. It also has a large 5.5-inch display that looks great, and its dual front-facing speakers can beat even some of the high-end devices in the market.
As for the Alcatel OneTouch Watch – just keep in mind this is not an Android Wear product, so you won’t have access to all those apps Google’s wearable platform touts. Now, this doesn’t take much away from its value. I tested it at CES 2015 and can tell you it has enough features to keep many of us happy.
Want in on this deal? All you have to do is go get the bundle either from Amazon or Alcatel’s official page. The offer ends on August 9th, so you will want to sign up before then. By the way, the offer does include Amazon Prime shipping, so you can have this bundle in your hands very, very soon!
