Hottest Smartwatches in the Market right now

1. Apple watch series 5 – Starts at Rs. 40,900/$349 (View on Amazon)

If you’re an IPhone user, there is no doubt that this is the first watch that will come to your mind if you are out looking in the market. While they do come with a price but the performance completely makes up for it. This time with the series 5, Apple didn’t go around to add loads of features to the watch compared to the series 4, but added small changes like the always on display which has been missing in previous version, and it enhances the experience more than you would expect. More features are expected to roll in with the updates but Apple’s main focus will be shifted as it closes towards the launch of the Apple watch series 6.
