Editor's note: this contest closed at noon ET on Monday, December 8.

You probably don't need a smartwatch. But you might want one. And you might especially want one if it's free. Well, here's your chance...

This week, we've got a $199 Burg 12 smartwatch from Hermen van den Burg, a lifestyle designer for IKEA and Target. It pairs with all iPhones and Android phones via Bluetooth or can function as a standalone phone using any GSM SIM card (a free included card comes with $25 of prepaid talk and text).

The scratch-resistant touchscreen display measures 1.5 inches and has a resolution of 240x240 pixels. In addition to calls and texts, the device handles all the other basic functions you'd expect to see in a smartwatch -- music, video, a camera, calendar, contact lists and voice recording. The watch has 4GB of onboard storage that can be expanded to 16GB via microSD port.
