9. The Tag Heuer Connected
Tag Heuer, the luxury watchmaker, is expanding its smartwatch portfolio. The Swiss already have a good selection of ‘Connected’ smartwatches. The Connected Module 41 has been added to the list. According to reports, the Android Wear-based smartwatch is a scaled-down version of the Connected Module 45. It is smaller in size and has some changes.
The Connected Module 41 is expensive because it is made by a luxury watchmaker. The price of the watch starts at $1200, which is approximately Rs 76,000. The Connected Module 41 series includes seven models in total. All of these can be customised with different straps while adhering to the basic concept of modular smartwatches. Pink, blue, and white leather straps are among the new additions to the collection. This brings the total number of straps on the list to nine.

8. Montblanc Summit 2
With a DLC coated stainless steel case, three side buttons, and a 22mm leather strap, the Montblanc Summit 2 Smartwatch has a traditional appearance. Its smart features, on the other hand, would be visible on the dial due to its AMOLED screen’s digital display.
The Montblanc Summit 2 Smartwatch, like the Movado Connect 2.0, is powered by Google’s Wear OS technology. As a result, it contains the Google Fit fitness monitoring software. It also has a heart rate monitor and a workout coach app. This wristwatch also has world time, weather, currency, and exchange rate applications.

The Moto 360 Gen 3 has finally arrived in India, two years after its global debut. The smartwatch was first listed on Flipkart in May, but it is now available for purchase for Rs 19,990.
The new Moto 360 is available in three colours: Phantom Black, Steel Grey, and Rose Gold. Flipkart is also giving select bank cardholders up to Rs 1500 of the smartwatch.

6. Movado Connect 2.0
Get the Movado Connect 2.0 smartwatch here.
Looking for a Wear OS smartwatch that looks like it belongs in an office? The stainless steel strap of the device could be mistaken for a traditional wristwatch, but there is also a leather strap for those who prefer a lightweight, simple strap.
One of the best classic-looking Wear OS smartwatches is the Movado Connect 2.0 Smartwatch. The overall body of the smartwatch is IPX8 waterproof, which means it can withstand immersion in water up to one metre deep.
When it comes to displaying, Movado equipped it with a 1.3″ inch AMOLED display, which is a sharp, full-colour vivid picture display with a 400 x 400-pixel resolution.
The smartwatch has a slim bezel and a full-screen touch screen. It works with Android 6.0+ (excluding the Go edition) and iOS 10.0+.

The Movado Connect 2.0 Smartwatch is supported by a 300 mAh battery that lasts 4-5 days in standby mode and 1 day in typical use.
5. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
The stainless-steel body of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic variant lends it a tough appearance. It works flawlessly as advertised, though some find the strap lacking in metal.
Since we’re on the subject of Smartwatches, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series is likely to be the first in India to run Google Wear OS 3.0. If you aren’t using this watch in conjunction with a Samsung smartphone, you’ll need two apps to get it up and running – Galaxy Wearable and Samsung Health.
The Exynos W920 dual-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, more than half of which is taken up by the operating system and preinstalled apps and services, power the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic has a battery life of about 26 to 29 hours, which I find unacceptable. Even on days when you don’t use GPS, it doesn’t last more than 30 hours.
The Samsung Watch 4 Classic is priced at Rs 34,999 and includes a one-year warranty. one that has me concerned about my battery I’d rather have a good fitness watch, such as the Amazfit GTR 2, which has most of the fitness tracking features available here, except a couple, and ten times the battery backup for nearly a third of the price.
4. TicWatch Pro 3
The Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra smartwatch has been released worldwide. It ships with Wear OS 2.0 and includes GPS support, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, Wi-Fi, IP68 certification, MIL-STD-810G certification, 20+ sports mode, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, and an eSIM for 4G LTE connectivity.

1.39-inch AMOLED circular display with a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels and a pixel density of 326ppi is provided by the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3. The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 CPU and Mobvoi’s proprietary dual-processor architecture power the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra.

GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, 4G (via eSIM card slot), and NFC are among the connectivity features of the TicWatch 3 Pro Ultra.
3. Michael Kors Access
Michael Kors, a well-known luxury brand famed for its mechanical timepieces, has launched its most recent smartwatch in India: the Michael Kors Access Gen 6. As a consequence, it’s plausible to believe that the Michael Kors Access Gen 6 is simply a rebranded Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch in a more upscale form.
The Access Gen 6 smartwatch comes in different colours which add luxury appeal, some of them are Gold Glitz, Rose Gold, Rose Gold Glitz, and a two-tone finish.
The Michael Kors Access Gen 6 smartwatch has a 1.28-inch AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 326 PPI. It includes a 4-pin USB magnetic puck charger that supports fast charging and promises an 80% charge in 30 minutes.
In India, the Michael Kors Access Gen 6 Bradshaw begins at Rs. 25,995. (MKT5133). The Access Gen 6 Bradshaw smartwatch is currently available in a limited number of online and offline retail outlets across India.
2. Mondaine Helvetica Smartwatch
Mondaine takes hybrid smartwatches incredibly serious, disclosing the Helvetica Regular Smartwatch at Baselworld 2018. The Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch and the Alpina AlpinerX was created by the Swiss X Silicon Valley.
For fitness monitoring, sleep tracking, and alerts, the new Helvetica Smartwatch connects to the same app.
It still tracks actions, with an objective specified in the MMT app and improvement shown as a portion on the inner dial of the watch face. The hour hand will then point to A, and the minute hand will show how far you’ve come toward your goal.
It’s a creative strategy that echoes Fossil’s in recent years, and it’s refreshing to see that Mondaine isn’t content with simply leveraging its name when it comes to smartwatches.
1. Breitling Exospace B55
To begin with, the B55 looks to be an analogue watch (three hands, bezel markings, etc.) until you realise the pair of embedded LCD panels. Instead of fussing with the crown, a Breitling app may be used to set the time, alarms, and display on the watch.
They’re too small to display anything other than caller ID and a reminder to check your email, but this is significantly preferable to Breitling’s attempt to display complete scrolling e-mails on those tiny panels.
The hardware is exactly what you’d expect from Breitling: a large 46 mm pilot-style watch made entirely of black titanium, with a bright blue, thick rubber strap and a sturdy, deploy-style buckle.
Even though the 46 mm watch is still far too large for most people, the entire package is lighter than it appears (forget trying to wear it with a sport coat or a sweater).
The watch is charged via a proprietary USB cable attached to the side with a magnet. The watch automatically saves all of your data and pushes it to the app the next time you connect the two, so there’s no need to double-check that you’re using them simultaneously at all times.
Bonus: Garmin D2 Delta Smartwatch
Garmin has a smartwatch for almost every activity and style imaginable, including pilots and those who appreciate “aviator fashion.” The Garmin D2 Delta PX watch will be of interest to you whether you are an active pilot professional or simply have aeroplane operation aspirations.
This D2 Delta PX smartwatch is the largest and only titanium version in the D2 Delta collection.
I’m not a pilot, so I can’t go over the aviation features of this watch, but I can go over some of the things the D2 Delta PX can do while in the air.
Even if you never use the flight tracking and navigation features of the D2 Delta PX, you can still use it as a full-featured smartwatch for smartphone notifications, Garmin Pay, music listening, and a variety of fitness and activity tracking features.
Anyone familiar with Garmin’s smartwatch operating system will recognise the D2 Delta’s non-touchscreen collection of five buttons around the central case.
