Apple is one of the most popular tech companies in the world. They redefined the wearable technology industry with the introduction of Apple Watch back in 2015.

Recently Apple released the Apple Watch Series 6 smartwatch which is the latest iteration of its immensely popular Apple Watch lineup, available for purchase at just Rs.52,900.

Build Quality and Desing

The Apple Watch Series 6 is just a minor upgrade in terms of build and design when compared to the Apple Watch Series 5. The Series 6 is more of an incremental update.

The casing of this smartwatch is made of aluminium and it comes in different colours such as red, space grey, gold, etc. Do note that the casing is also available in stainless steel for certain colours.

The Apple Watch comes with a soft silicone sports band. Apple has also launched a wide range of bands that can be purchased separately.

Apart from the similar design aesthetics, the only new addition you can find on the Apple Watch Series 6 is the few new sensors on its back.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is water-resistant, more specifically it is swim-proof which means you can wear it even while swimming without any worries.

Display

The display on the Apple Watch Series 6 is the same 1.78-inch Retina LTPO OLED panel with a resolution of 448 x 368 pixels.

The Apple Watch Series 6 has an always-on display and Apple claims that the brightness of the display is 2.5x more than the previous iteration of the Apple Watch.

This display has a peak brightness of 1000 nits which makes it easily visible outdoors, even under direct sunlight.

The display of the smartwatch has a screen-to-body ratio of 60%, which is impressive considering the compactness of the dial.

The whole UI, along with the icons and text look gorgeous on this OLED panel and is a joy to use.

Features

The Apple Watch Series 6 is exclusively designed to work with iPhones. Pairing the smartwatch with other Apple devices is a simple, straightforward process and can be done within a few seconds.

Apple Watches are known for their industry-leading wearable technologies that other companies are forced to adopt, but never get it as right as Apple does.

The new Apple Watch Series 6 has an all-new blood oxygen sensor that measures oxygen saturation. Measuring blood oxygen level has become quite common among the public due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and this watch returns an accurate measure of the same.

This smartwatch also can get an ECG to provide a detailed analysis of the heart, thanks to the high-quality heart rate sensor onboard.

The Apple Watch is designed to inform the user regarding the anomalies in heart rate if it detects so. In short, this smartwatch monitors the heart 24×7 for any abnormalities in your body metabolism.

Fall detection is yet another feature that works so well with the Apple Watch. In case you happen to fall, the watch sounds an alarm.

You can turn off the alarm manually or send an emergency response. If the watch detects no movement after a fall for over a minute, then the emergency response to the pre-set numbers is sent automatically.

The Apple Watch Series 6 cellular variant supports e-SIM connectivity for calling and texting right from the watch without the help of a smartphone around.

Miscellaneous

The Apple Watch Series 6 runs on Apple’s proprietary Watch 7.1 OS. The Watch OS runs buttery smooth with 1GB RAM and 32GB of storage inside.

The new S6 dual-band chip inside the Series 6 smartwatch is up to 20% faster than the one inside the Series 5 watch. This new chip also supports faster and stable 5GHz Wi-Fi.

Battery Life

The Apple Watch Series 6 lasts for up to 18 hours with the always-on display and intermittent GPS usage.

The magnetic dock charger that comes bundled with the Apple Watch Series 6 takes around 2.30 hours to juice up the battery from zero to hundred per cent.

Verdict

If you want the best smartwatch out there and doesn’t care for the budget, this is it. It will be a better choice if you are already invested in the Apple product ecosystem as the sync between multiple devices will be seamless.

  • Gorgeous AMOLED display 
  • 5ATM Water-resistant
  • Decent battery life

Xiaomi is a smartphone manufacturer from China and their smartphones are popular in India thanks to their competitive pricing.

Xiaomi has finally launched their highly anticipated smartwatch in the country, the Mi Watch Revolve priced at just Rs.8,999.

Build Quality and Desing

The Mi Watch Revolve dial is made from metal which in itself induces a sense of luxury and built to last feel.

Weighing at just 40g, this is one of the lightest smartwatches around the Rs.10,000 price bracket.

The strap of this smartwatch is made of silicone but it feels a bit slim and is not of the best quality. The strap is interchangeable and can be easily removed to swap with one of your choices.

The rear section of the Mi Watch Revolve houses the heart rate sensor and magnetic charging dots.

This watch, similar to most other smartwatches in this segment, is rated 5ATM water-resistant.

Display

The Mi Watch Revolve features a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels.

This display is very sharp and looks clean without any noticeable pixelation whatsoever.

By default, the display of the watch is always on. But if you want to save some battery, you can set it to wake up when the wrist is raised.

This panel comes with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection to prevent accidental scratches on the display.

Thanks to the OLED panel, the text and icons look punchy and vivid. The brightness level of this watch is decent enough for effortless indoor as well as outdoor viewing.

Features

The full-fledged Xiaomi wear companion app can be downloaded from the Google Playstore or Apple iOS store to customize and set this watch up.

The companion smartphone app lets you choose from over 100 watch faces to stylize the smartwatch to your liking.

This smartwatch features inbuilt GPS for independent locating tracking and has a barometer for elevation data.

The dynamic 24×7 heart rate monitor returns accurate results and it also measures the Vo2 max data which indicates the cardiorespiratory health.

This premium smartwatch from Mi supports 10 different professional sport modes to track the specific statistics while performing the same.

Similar to other smartwatches out there, the Mi Watch Revolve can be set to receive smartphone notifications in real-time including calls and message alerts.

Battery Life

Mi claims that in a single charge, the Mi Watch Revolve will last for up to 14 days.

However with GPS turned on always, expect the battery life to be significantly less than this 14-day claim from Xiaomi.

To charge up the device, you get a charging dock upon which you have to place your Mi Watch Revolve.

Verdict

The Xiaomi Mi Watch Revolve is a beautiful smartwatch that is going to attract some attention in terms of design.

This smartwatch packs in most of the features that we can expect from a premium smartwatch and does perform those functions without any compromise.

Buying Guide for Smartwatch in India

Who would have thought that a watch on our wrists would be able to monitor our health 24×7 or we could speak to people around the world through a watch?

Smartwatches have brought a revolutionary change in the watch industry just like how the iPhone revolutionized the smartphone industry.

If you are reading this then it is likely that you are planning to purchase a smartwatch for yourself but are not sure about which is the right one for you.

We at Bettershark have prepared a short buying guide to give you an insight into some of the factors that you should consider before purchasing a smartwatch.

So without wasting any more time let’s get right into it.

CASING

The casing of the smartwatch is also known as its body or frame. The material used for the casing of the smartwatch is a very crucial factor in determining its durability in the long term.

Smartwatches come in polycarbonate, stainless steel, and aluminium casing. Stainless steel and aluminium casing are the more durable ones.

Polycarbonate casing is common in budget smartwatches. There is nothing wrong with going for a polycarbonate casing but it won’t provide the premium feel which we get from a stainless steel or aluminium casing.

DIAL

Smartwatches are available in two dial shapes – square, and circle. The shape of the dial in a smartwatch does not affect its performance and is purely an aesthetic choice.

If you prefer a more aggressive design for your smartwatch we recommend that you go for a square dial on the other hand if you prefer something more minimalistic then you should go for a circular dial.

STRAP

The strap of a smartwatch is also a really important feature that deserves attention.

Smartwatches primarily come with a silicone strap, however, these silicone straps are not recommended for those who have allergic reactions to synthetic rubber.

You can also find smartwatches that have leather straps or metal chains although they are not that common.

We recommend that you go for a smartwatch with detachable straps so that you can add a strap of your choice rather than permanently sticking to the straps provided by the manufacturer.

FEATURES

The main reason you would buy a smartwatch is to get access to its wide range of features.

Smartwatches come loaded with various sensors such as heart rate monitor, SPo2, accelerometer, gyroscope, IR blaster, etc.

The feature set of the smartwatch varies according to its budget. The more premium the smartwatch the more features it has, some smartwatches like the Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch 3 are capable of performing ECG readings which is advanced and can inform you of any cardiac anomalies.

People who have cardiac issues tend to benefit from the health and fitness features that these smartwatches provide.

Another important function in a smartwatch is calling and texting. Calling is possible in most top-tier smartwatches and the same goes for texting.

Budget smartwatches generally do not get calling functionality, hence if you want the ability to attend calls from your smartwatch then you would have to pay a premium.

WATER RESISTANCE

It is recommended that you go for a smartwatch that is water-resistant because since a watch is worn at all times we never know when it might get drenched in water.

Smartwatches come with IP68 water resistance, 5ATM, and 3ATM water resistance.

According to Wikipedia IP68 is “dust and water-resistant” and can be “immersed in 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes”.

5ATM water resistance means that the watch can be submerged in water for under 50 meters and 3ATM water resistance means that the watch can be submerged in water for 30 meters both up to 10 minutes.

With this we have reached the end of our buying guide, make sure that you go through the above-mentioned factors and choose the smartwatch that has the features suiting your needs.
