This is a smartwatch for users who want to get the most value out of their purchase.

For the price you pay, you’re getting a range of features and functions which add volumes to the overall usability of the smartwatch.

Here is a smart watch which sets itself apart from other smart watches as it has a rectangular display, rather than a circular one. The display on this watch is a 1.64-inch AMOLED panel. The default watch face is quite sporty and bold, with all the workout information available to you at a glance, but the best part is that you can see a lot more relevant information at the swipe of a finger. You can also change the watch face to show the complications that you want, which makes for more usability. The goal of this smartwatch is to help you get a healthy lifestyle, which is why it tracks your heart rate, stress and blood oxygen levels throughout the day, and lets you know when you’re exerting too much.
If you’re looking for a smartwatch which becomes an extension of your smartphone, then this is the pick for you. It comes in a sleek design, which is only enhanced by the always on display on this smartwatch. This is especially useful, as most smartwatches switch off the display to conserve battery, but it's a bit of a hassle getting it back on. With the always on display, you’ll always have relevant information at your wrist. Like other smartwatches, this one also comes with a range of sensors and trackers, which help you lead a healthier lifestyle. Furthermore, you can also put on custom watch faces depending on what you like.
