Skagen Falster 2 Wear OS smartwatch is down to an incredibly low $70

Wear OS smartwatches may not be as popular as they used to, but they still offer enough features to please most people, especially when you can get them at a discount. The Skagen Falster 2 is a great option to consider, especially when it's down to just $70. It looks like a traditional watch but comes with all of Wear OS' features to assist you through your day. When it came out, the timepiece cost about $275, but it's now dropped to just $70. At this price, I wouldn't even look for an alternative if you're fine with using Wear OS.
