Best Smartwatches You Can Buy

In today’s world, it’s no shock that watches are capable of things no phone was able to, only a couple of decades back. Gone are the times where they would only tell you the time, and in some cases, the date. Smartwatches can track the likes of heart rate and blood pressure, let you see your notifications and remind you of things. They are the perfect to invest in to improve productivity in all walks of a life. Check out the top five on our list.

This smartwatch is the absolute definition of bang for your buck. Priced at Rs 2,499, this watch can resist water till up to 50m of depth, is meant for fitness and the outdoor and hence is quite durable and comes with features such as step count, calories count, heart rate monitor, calendar, etc to name a few. The downsides could be the 240X240 pixels touchscreen display and the 8-10 day battery life, slightly lower than its costlier counterparts, but if that’s something you could work with, this watch is for you!
