The SmartWatch 3 was never the most distinguished wristwatch. James Bond may carry around an Xperia phone, but not even Sony can get him to travel the world with so much plastic wrapped around his wrist.

But the SmartWatch 3 is still, in many ways, one of the best Android Wear devices. It's intended for more rugged use than most of the competition, and the built-in GPS is a feature that high-end alternatives like the Huawei Watch and LG Watch Urbane lack.

Today you can get the SmartWatch 3 for only $99.99 from Verizon Wireless, no hoops required. The carrier calls this a $30 savings, but it's $60 less than what Amazon wants and $150 less than Google. For folks who aren't stuck on metal or leather, this may just be the watch to get and the time to do so.

The watch is back in stock at the same discounted price.
