Smartwatches have become fairly common these days, and they now offer more than music control or step count. Most watches are slowly adding SpO2 sensors owing to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to capabilities such as heart rate monitor and sleeping tracker. Thankfully, most of them are also compatible with iPhones in case you don’t want to spend over Rs 20,000 on Apple Watch. If you’re planning to get a new fitness wearable here are five options under Rs 15,000 in India.
