A watch is all about making a statement. It stays on your wrist and it’s something that everyone notices.

Even in smartwatches, you can choose between factors such as dial size and shape, strap material and colour of bezel.

Now, all of these devices are little more than an additional display for the smartphone in your pocket.

In terms of functionality, smartwatches alert you to message notifications, allow you to set reminders, check your calendar appointments and more, in addition to measuring your heart rate and counting the steps you take.

With a whole variety of smartwatches available in the market today, choosing which one to buy can be a little difficult.

To help you with the same, we’ve compiled a list of the 6 hottest smartwatches available in India.
