Best smartwatches in India

Smartwatches in India Gadgets 360 rating (out of 10) Price in India (as recommended)
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 8 Rs. 11,990

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is among the most affordable smartwatches on this list. It was launched at a starting price of Rs. 26,990, but has gradually dropped down to a reasonable Rs. 11,990 making it accessible to a wider audience. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes in one dial size only, and there are GPS-only as well as LTE-enabled variants. The cases are made out of aluminum or stainless steel depending on the model you choose.

Samsung has used a dual-core Exynos 9110 SoC to power the Galaxy Watch Active 2. It has 1.5GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. It runs Samsung’s TizenOS which separates it from some of the other smartwatches on this list. TizenOS has limited support for third-party apps but you get most of the functionality you’d need out of the box.

It has an AMOLED display, and depending on the case size you choose, it’ll either have a 300mAh or a 430mAh battery.

The Oppo Watch is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC and has a secondary Ambiq Micro Apollo 3 SoC for background tasks. It also has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
