1. Lenovo Ego

lenovo-ego
Best Branded Smartwatch
  • Excellent battery life
  • Up to 50m water resistant
  • Heart rate sensor

Lenovo Ego is a digital watch with smart features embedded into it, priced just under Rs.2000.

This branded smartwatch from Lenovo comes packed with useful features which the normal digital watches in the price range lack.

Design and Build Quality

The Lenovo Ego looks and feels similar to any other normal digital watches available in the market today.

The hard fibre strap is very durable, so does the hard plastic and fibre combination casing.

The buttons are placed around the chassis and offer excellent click response.

Hardware features

The Lenovo Ego smartwatch comes with Bluetooth v4.0 to wirelessly sync with your smartphone.

There is an optical heart rate sensor in the rear that gives out almost accurate results every time.

The black and white LCD isn’t colour and has blue backlighting in case you want to read the time in the dark.

Miscellaneous

This smartwatch displays notifications from messaging apps and your phone dialler.

But the catch here is that these notifications are generic and doesn’t specify many details such as which app sends the notification or who called you when etc.

The Lenovo Ego is water-resistant up to 50m, meaning you can wear this smartwatch around in rains with no fears of getting damaged.

Battery Life

The Lenovo Ego is powered by a 100mAh rechargeable battery which lasts for around 20 days on a single charge.

Do note that this is without frequently using a heart rate sensor. The charging is pretty easy with the supplied dock and the magnetic adapter that clips on to the charging points on the back.

Verdict

If you’re in search of a normal digital watch with added smart features, the Lenovo Ego is a reliable and trustworthy product.

Excellent battery life and the built-in heart rate tracker adds value to the overall purchase.

2. SKMEI GS10347

skmei-gs10347
Hybrid Smartwatch
  • Best for fitness freaks
  • Withstand small water splashes
  • Real-time activity tracking

SKMEI is a Chinese manufacturer specialized in making smartwatches about a different audience across the globe.

The SKMEI GS10347 is more of a fitness-based smartwatch that’s priced reasonably in the Indian market.

Design and Build Quality

This smartwatch comes with a khaki coloured strap which looks very much appealing considering the black colour of the circular dial.

The construction is robust and feels very solid.

Connectivity and Hardware

Just as other smartwatches in the category, the SKMEI GS10347 can connect with your smartphone and pull notifications such as calls, messages and calendar entries.

However, there isn’t a SIM card slot for independent cellular connectivity.

There is an optical heart rate monitor on this device that gives pretty much accurate readings on your heartbeats.

Real-time activity tracking feature will let you strictly follow the plans according to the schedule and helps to stay fit.

Nifty features like turn the wrist to check the display works well off the shelf. This feature saves a lot of battery as well.

Miscellaneous

This smartwatch can double up as a spy remote if you want it to.

When paired with your smartphone, using the remote camera option, the device can click pictures and capture videos using the smartphone cameras stealthily.

One of the main advantages of this fitness smartwatch is that the quality of sensors used inside is of much better quality compared to the rest.

Battery Life

Speaking of the battery, the 160 mAh cell inside can last up to 8 days on a single charge.

The magnetic induction charging makes the process of plugging in the device a pleasant experience.

Verdict

The SKMEI smartwatch is more of a fitness-based device rather than just a smartwatch for checking time and notifications.

Fitted with a heart rate sensor, one of the main omissions the company has made is that of a SIM card connectivity.

Fitness freaks would any day prefer a heart rate sensor than a SIM card for sure.

If you love to have a fitness-oriented smartwatch under an affordable budget, this device is a good choice.

  • Anti-lost function
  • Push notifications

EYUVAA LABEL Y1S is an entry level smartwatch which is suitable for males as well as females alike.

This premium looking smartwatch priced under Rs.2,000 does compete with luxury smartwatches in terms of the elegant design and overall form factor.

Build Quality and Design

This smartwatch features a circular dial and a comfortable strap that’s made of high-quality silicon material. The textured dial perimeter renders a premium feel to the watch.

The strap has optimally spaced holes to adjust the fit in your hands. Whatever be the size of your wrist, this smartwatch fits snug in hand.

Being a comparatively lightweight watch weighing at around 110g, it can be worn without any discomfort.

Processor and Display

Inside this smartwatch is a 1.3Ghz MTK6261 dual-core processor, the details of which are relatively vague to obtain. This is to be expected from a cheap Chinese manufacturer.

This smartwatch features a 1.22-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 240×240 pixels.

This is a touch-enabled display which makes the navigation through the UI quite easy to deal with.

The display on this device is decently bright enough to be legible outdoors. Also, the touch responsiveness seems to be fine.

Features

The EYUVAA LABEL Y1S comes with 4G SIM support which will let you use this device as a standalone communication tool.

This budget smartwatch comes with a VGA camera onboard for occasional selfie clicks. The quality of the images from this camera is decent to say the best.

Usual functions that are expected to be present on entry-level smartwatches are present and accounted for. Sleep monitoring function works surprisingly well.

There is a built-in pedometer on this watch but the calculation of steps taken is a bit off. Sometimes the system fails altogether to register the steps taken.

Miscellaneous

This smartwatch doubles up as a remote for your smartphone.

You can control the notifications from social media apps as well as system applications such as phone dialer and messages.

What we liked the most about this smartwatch is the music player remote.

With this app, you can control the player on the phone without having to take it out from the pocket while playing a song.

On the compatibility front, the EYUVAA LABEL Y1S works fine with both Android and iOS alike.

Battery Life

Battery life might be one of the most important concerns for any smartwatch user.

This smartwatch lasts for a day on moderate usage and provides a decent talk time of 4-5 hours.

Verdict

If you’re in search of a smartwatch that should have deep integration with your Android smartphone, the EYUVAA LABEL 1S is one of the products worth considering under Rs.2000.

Features such as anti-lost function and music player remote will come in handy often which although not something very surprising is very much welcome addition for a smartwatch priced under Rs.2,000.

Best Kids Smartwatch
  • Perfect birthday gift for your Kids
  • Attractive colour options
  • Robust call filtering feature

SEtracker is a relatively unknown Chinese company here in India. The company has recently launched a kids-centric smartwatch in that costs just around Rs.2,000.

Why does your Kid need a smartwatch you may ask?

Design and Build Quality

Talking about the design, the SEtracker smartwatch comes in different bright colours.

The square dial and the strap colour blends seamlessly. Strap material is rubber and the quality doesn’t feel cheap either.

The company provides three months of warranty on this smartwatch. Remember, this isn’t exactly a smartwatch for convenience but rather for the safety of your kids.

Safety Centric Features

For starters, there’s a dedicated SOS button on this watch which can be programmed to send messages and calls to the specified number in a single click.

If you Kid, unfortunately, is in any danger or need any kind of assistance, all he/she would have to do is press the button once and you’ll get notified.

There is a filter option that comes with the watch that lets you pre-set some numbers to be allowed to call to this smartwatch while other incoming calls are filtered out. This function keeps strangers and other spam calls to your kids at bay.

Location Tracker

One of the most important features of a Kids smartwatch is the location tracker. This SEtracker smartwatch combines GPS and LBS (Location Based Services) to track your kid accurately.

The SeTracker application, available in Play store and App store will let you track the movements of your Kids in real time via your smartphone or tablet.

Verdict

In short, this Kids smartwatch from SEtracker addresses some of the social consequences that might make you paranoid otherwise.

5. Enew DZ09

enew-dz09
Best Budget Smartwatch
  • Value for money product
  • Memory expandability
  • Best suited to Android devices

Enew is yet another Chinese smartwatch manufacturer trying their luck in the Indian market.

The Enew DZ09 is a surprisingly low-priced smartwatch that offers great value for money features at a price tag of just Rs.654. ‘

Design and build quality

This smartwatch features a square dial and resin band with anti-slip design. This makes the strap fit tight on your wrist.

The main menu key is placed on the brush metal front plate that’s conveniently accessible.

The clasp holding the straps is made of stainless steel and is of high quality in itself.

Display

The 1.5-inch LCD display up front displays decent colours and exhibits average brightness.

If you’re to use this smartwatch in bright sunlight, readability may suffer a little.

Connectivity

This budget smartwatch can be connected to your phone via Bluetooth or by means of an independent 4G SIM card.

It can dial and receive calls and send messages on its own without the smartphone.

Hardware features

On the top of the square dial, the company has provided a 2.0MP camera that will let you take shots, but not of anything much useful.

Usual fitness features such as pedometer and exercise mileage calendar are present on this device and work as expected.

This smartwatch has a provision for increasing the internal memory up to 32GB via an added TF card.

Miscellaneous

Compatibility is one of the problems with many budget smartwatches.

Android OS has relatively lax security policies compared with iOS and allows these smartwatches to be deeply integrated with the system.

Expect certain functionalities like notification push messages and Anti-lost tracker to not work when you pair this device with an iPhone or iPad.

Battery life

The Enew DZ09 has a promised battery life of about two days on a single charge.

With cellular connectivity turned on all the time, expect a significant decrease in these number as it will drain more power from the device.

Verdict

The Enew DZ09 is one of the most feature-packed smartwatches priced under this budget.

Everything works as advertised and gives you the basic functionalities at a fraction of cost what the premium smartwatches retail for.

7. Portronics Yogg X

portronics-yogg-x
Honorable Mention
  • Vibrant and bright OLED display
  • Magnetic charging dock
  • Bluetooth v4.0

Portronics is a familiar brand to many, thanks to their popular Bluetooth speakers and computer accessories lineup.

The Yogg X from Portronics is an entry level smartwatch that doubles up as a cheap fitness tracker.

Design and Build Quality

The Portronics Yogg X has a minimal yet elegant design that looks very attractive in hand.

The rounded aluminium watch face blends very well with the rubber strap material. This strap features a hole and pin mechanism to wrap around your wrist.

The quality of the strap material is excellent. The soft rubber is gentle with the skin and won’t cause rashes or irritations when worn for extended periods of time.

The watch face has a glossy circular ring around for aesthetic purposes which makes this smartwatch look way too premium.

Display

The Portronics Yogg X features a 1.2-inch touch-enabled OLED display, which is a first of its kind in this price segment.

OLED displays offer excellent contrast levels as they turn off the pixels on a black background, making the image/text look sharper and more vivid.

The display on the Yogg X is very much visible even when it’s used outdoors on a bright sunny day.

The OLED technology also helps save battery as the number of pixels lit up during a specific time period is less than those in the LCD panels.

The only downside about this display is that it isn’t a coloured display and has a single blue output. However, the blue accent on a totally dark background looks awesome in a sense.

Smart Features

This budget smart watch has fitness-related features and smart connectivity graciously fused into an elegant watch form factor.

The smart wristband functions of this device include step meter, calorie burn calculator, distance measurement and sleep monitoring.

These functions may be rudimentary when compared with the dedicated fitness bands, but remember this is a smartwatch and these features aren’t its first preferences, to begin with.

The Portronics Yogg X has Bluetooth v4.0 support which helps it to get connected with your smartphone with minimal energy consumption.

You can use the Yogg X app from the play store to set the sync for the messages and calls notification on this smartwatch. You can also get notifications from social networks such as Facebook and WhatsApp on this device.

Additionally, there’s the anti-lost function that will locate your phone if it is present in the vicinity of Bluetooth range of the smartwatch.

Battery Life

This device is powered by a 55mAh Li-ion battery. The battery takes two hours to charge from the empty state and lasts for 8-9 hours of screen on time.

Charging this device is incredibly easy, thanks to the magnetic dock on which the watch can be placed directly. There is no need to remove the watch module from the strap.

Verdict

The Portronics Yogg X is the best-branded smartwatch available in the Indian market for a budget around Rs.2,000.

The bright, vivid OLED display and the convenient magnetic charging port makes this device pit firmly against the competitors and claim the top spot.
