The Burg 12 is a smartwatch, designed by Hermen van den Burg, that allows users to enjoy smartphone functionality without having to pair the device with a smartphone.

The Burg 12 runs on a proprietary software that allows the user to make calls and send texts without having to pair it with a smartphone. The impressive stand-alone abilities also apply to the radio, music player, calendar and calculator, while an on-board camera lets users capture and view photos.

The device's display bears a 240 x 240 resolution, making for 226 pixels per inch.

The Burg 12's features aren't completely unique in themselves, but what makes this product stand out is its price -- it is available for just $199 from Walmart, although users have to pay for their own line once the included prepaid SIM runs out.
