If you have an older version of Apple watch, you faced the issue of tapping the watch, again and again, to light up the watch display. And that’s why always on-display must needed feature for Apple users. 

Apple’s claimed that Watch 5 can sustain about 18 hours but many users are struggling to even make it through 12 hours. So, keep in mind to bring your wireless dock with yourself.

Best Smartwatches in India- Buyers Guide

What should you look for when you buy a smartwatch?

Buying a smartwatch will not be difficult when you consider this entire guide to select the best smartwatches in India. 

Before buying the best smartwatch for you, you just have to evaluate various aspects such as durability, touch screen, motion isolation, display size and feature, comfortability, water-resistant, and many more. 
We glanced at each of these features in detail for you.

So First Thing First! What type of user you are?

The choice of the smartwatch you should buy depends on the way you use them. Let us see how your style and needs influenced your decision to buy the right smartwatch.

Not all people use their smartwatches in the same way you do. Some prefer to use them on for their physical workouts whereas some prefer to wear them as traditional watches. 

A. For Fitness Lovers

Fitness-conscious people should opt to buy a smartwatch that has an inbuilt heart rate sensor and GPS. An inbuilt heart rate sensor and GPS can help to track your runs with the right intensity without carrying any additional tech. 

So if your primary focus is on fitness and wants a wearable smartwatch then go for an inbuilt heart rate tracker, GPS, and exercise modes.

B. For all-day user

Normally, in a mid-day, your mobile’s battery gets drained out and you don’t want that to happen to your smartwatch, as you don’t want to carry any additional charger for your watch. And hence you need a smartwatch that at least serves you a day or close to.

In addition to the longevity of the battery, you might need more advanced connectivity features like calling, messaging, paying bills, and even mailing to your boss. 

So, if your main goal is to indulge yourself with extra features and want something that’ll not only help you at the gym or the office then you should consider a watch with monstrous battery backup meanwhile your needed features have not been compromised.

To sort out this I recommend you to go through a Samsung Galaxy watch if you are an Android user, and Apple Series Watch 5 if you have an iPhone.

Operating system

So the next big question you should ask, on which operating system you are going to use them? Because most smartwatches are designed to work as companions to specific companies smartphones like Apple’s smartwatches.

“Don’t buy a smartwatch unless you’re sure  that it will be compatible with your smartphone.”

As in general there are two major operating systems for smartphones i.e.  Android and iOS. So if you are using Android smartphone then you preferably to go for the smartwatches that have the supports same OS.

A. Tizen Smartwatches

Samsung’s smartwatches are based on Tizen operating system that is compatible with both android and apple iOS. But as per optimization and seamless interactive experience, it works better in Samsung’s smartphones than iPhones.

Tizen offers easy setup without a hectic setup that probably confuses you that are commonly seen in android wear and apple watch. These devices also support wifi and cellular networks.

B. Fitbit Versa

Fitbit targets health-conscious users. With its built-in scheduler, heart monitoring and smart notification tear your workout in the digestives chucks.

Fitbit has not a dedicated OS for smartphones so they work with both Android and iPhones. But for android users, Fitbit added some more tweaks like accept calls, check mobiles notification with quick replies.

And it’s Fitbit notifiers squeeze out all your workout data directly on the app screen. So, if you really want a smartwatch at low cost without compromising your fitness goals then Fitbits watches save you a couple of thousands of rupees.

C. Google’s Wear OS

Wear OS previously known to be Android designed by Google for smartwatches and other wearables. They are compatible with both OS.

But for iPhone users, there are limited features available. Features, like adding apps and connecting the watch directly to Wi-Fi are not available on iOS devices.

So, the bottom line is that if you have an apple device you should by Apple’s iPhone only.

But there is an additional tool that can help you to check your device’s compatibility with Wear OS by just visiting Wear OS by Google works.

D. Microsoft Band 

In contrary to all the above-mentioned smartwatches OS, Microsoft Band 2 is a window-based operating system that pushes notifications, emails preview and messages directly to smartwatches without hassling to check your laptops. It supports voice assistant Cortana that uses the Windows 8.1, 10 operating system.

Bottom line: Not recommended unless you a deep heart fan of Microsoft product.

E. Apple’s Watch OS

As expected, most of Apple’s products only work with Apple’s ecosystems and this trend also followed in Apple Watches. They are only compatible with Apple OS.

iPhones have a pre-installed elegant designed Apple Watch app with a clean and futuristic design that can deliver all add ons features with a snap of notifications. 

In addition, you can also download various other apps from their app store for more customizable user experience,  real-time data analysis, and other features.

Few more things to consider other than the compatible OS.

When you are choosing a smartwatch’s operating system, there are a few more things that you should acknowledge beyond the basic compatibility of the operating system i.e. security and updates.

For example, to demonstrate this, you can consider two software, Google wear, and Apple Watch OS. Both are specifically designed for smartwatches through their version and security differs the most.
Android wear is an open-source platform whereas watch OS has a strict policy and terms in which every watch app developers have to follow them.

Style and Watchbands

Have you stuck with your mobile back look and want to change but you do nothing for your smartphones except back covers. This problem is geared up in smartwatches with watch bands.

There are a lot of customizable watch bands that are available, some company provides along with watches and some you get from your near shops. 

There are basically three types of Watchbands standards 16mm, 20mm, and 22mm. Hence, if you get bored with your leather band then you can surely an option to switch it to stainless steel with minimal cost.

Or if you have a new year’s resolution of running a mile daily with 50 push-ups then I highly recommend you drop the idea of using stainless steel bands and stick with silicone-based watch bands.

Displays and Its features


OLEDs and AMOLED have individuals emulating pixels that can give you a great contract with a deep black color.

They are highly battery efficient with compact size. The viewing angles are also good that gives a realistic feeling like a classic watch. But these displays get permanently damaged by direct sunlight.


This crystal display has a backlight that works well even when you have outdoor conditions but at the same time counter with battery performance.

Due to continuous backlight functionality, it drains a tremendous amount of battery. Hence not a battery-efficient display.

C. Black-and-White Displays

These displays are outdated and seem not that classy. But you can achieve that amount of battery life that no other display panel can give.

These displays use e-ink or e-paper display that gives a high contrast. You can even see them clearly in direct sunlight.

Water-resistant and Waterproof

You can understand Water-resistant device as the ability to resist the penetration of water to some degree for some period of time. While the waterproofed device is impermeable to water, no matter how much time it spends in the water.

If you are a swimmer, the waterproof watches are the best option for you, and for the rest of the users, water-resistant can save your smartwatches life up to a few hours. 

So, whether you are an athlete or normal user water-resistance is the must-have feature in your smartwatches. Hence, don’t forget to check the water-resistance values for your smartwatch.

Glass Protection for Smartwatches

You are familiar with screen protection on your smartphones, mostly from Corning Gorilla Glass which protects devices from wear and tear.

But now smartwatches have strengthened glass protection too for better touch capabilities and also to protect the device from any scratches and drops.


The interface is a way by which you can interact with your device and for smartwatches, they can be a touch screen or buttons or both, that are available to interact with your wearables.

A. Touch screen

It is gesture-based interaction via screen display by using tabbing and scrolling to select and invade a specific task.

The touch screen is generally of two major types, one is resistive and second capacitive. Capacitive displays are easy to operate without much-needed application force.

B. Buttons and bezels

In addition to the touch-screens, some smartwatches use buttons or rotating bezels around their front screen to navigate in between the apps and features.

Either you are adaptive to old prone watches with mechanical buttons or smartwatches touch-screens are too small for you then buttons and bezel features enriches your feel without pinching the small display.

Notifications and Alerts

One more place you get distracted with the boss’s work is from your smartwatch’s notification. Smartwatches are capable of notifying you the text messages, email, incoming calls, missed calls, schedule, appointment reminders and alarms. Some smartwatches have the DND option to opt-out of your notifications for a period of time.

Now let’s assume, you are drunk and forgot your phone on the desk of a bartender, and suddenly your smartwatches start vibrating and alarming you that your device is far from your reach.

This feature generally works with a phone locator app that has Bluetooth support or real-time GPS.

Battery Life and Charging in Smartwatches

Modern smartwatches are power-hungry. They use the same battery type as your smartphones have i.e. Li-polymers or Li-ions.

The average of smartwatches doesn’t last more than 2 days. The most popular brands like Apple and Samsung also suffer from their battery performance.

The main cause of battery drain in smartwatches is their active connections and on-display. Active connections like GPS, Bluetooth, heart tracking sensors are the main cause of draining the battery.

So, a long term session of a marathon with active GPS and heart rate monitoring can drain your battery twice faster than the regular usage. Apart from this, the type of displays and onscreen times also affect battery life. 

Therefore, you need to hook up a charger again and again on a daily basis. But if you have a wireless charger which Apples and Samsung watches have inbuilt feature, you can cut your messy work of hooking them at least a day. 

Special Features

A. Activity Trackers: Heartbeat Tracker and GPS:

Heartbeat tracking sensor works on the basis of how fast blood is pumping through the capillary veins. These data are used to interpret as your heart rate in a “beats per minute” form.

On the other hand, GPS is based on the triangulation method. So, if you are sitting in the metro then a set of three GPS data from three different positioning satellites interprets your estimated locations.

B. Voice control 

“Hey, Siri!”, the voice assistant for Apple users that can be used to trade out the specific tasks. And this is a handy feature to which you can assist tasks on the smartwatches. 

Some features like setting alarms snoozing notification or searching on maps can easily manageable using your voice. 

C. Calling

While calling is not much popular still some people use their hand’s wrist to call their boss. It seems very futuristic but a smartwatch with a cellular network call be used for calling.

D. Mobile Payments

Wanna order Espresso from your favorite Starbucks? You just have to swipe your hands not the card. Seems interesting? Ya, that possible with new generation smartwatches. This is an add-on feature to a new generation of Samsung watches.

E. Internal Storage and Multimedia

Most of the devices have internal storage that not only store device’s apps but also multimedia files. Hence, you can enjoy your music while doing your pushups.
