5 Best Smartwatches Under ₹50,000 in India
Although they weren’t called so in the beginning, smartwatches - in the name of digital memory watches - were first introduced by the Hamilton Watch Company. The first of such was called the ‘Pulsar’, which had user-programmable memory. It was acquired by Seiko, which soon started developing these watches. The next breakthrough was when the brand released the ‘RC-1000 Wrist Terminal’ which could store 2 KB of data that could be connected to and transferred from a computer. This evolved over the years for the world of technology to arrive at contemporary smartwatches.
Smartwatches are versatile in many ways: watch faces that can be changed at any given point ensure different designs at no additional product purchase. Further, most of the watches also have the option of interchangeable watch straps which makes it all the more versatile for users to change and personalise to suit their needs. Maintenance also becomes hassle-free as the battery is chargeable. But the two most important advantages are: accessibility and portability. Since it's on the wrist, checking for notifications or other information becomes easy. Further, its ability to sync with all of the users’ devices makes it easier for us to keep track of events, messages, and health tracking among other things.
We have made a list of Top 5 Smartwatches under 50,000 in India, each having specific functions and designs to suit the needs of various kinds of users.
