Samsung Galaxy S7
Price: Rs. 48,900

Sony Xperia Z5
Price: Rs. 37,000 (approx.)

Motorola Moto G Turbo
Price: Rs. 12,499
If you want a water-resistant smartphone at smaller price, the Moto G Turbo is the one you should opt for. At less than Rs. 15,000, it comes with water resistance, capable of surviving under about 1 metre of water for upto 30 minutes.
Samsung Gear S2
Price: Rs. 22,900
The Samsung Gear S2 is currently the best smartwatch you can buy. It offers an intuitive design, and lets you read emails and reply to texts directly from the watch. Added water resistance will help you keep conversations going through the day.
Moto 360 2nd gen

The second generation Moto 360 is another good smartwatch to consider. Decent battery life and a neat, circular design will let you stay connected with ease, all day.
Asus ZenWatch 2

The Asus ZenWatch 2 is currently the best smartwatch in terms of value of money. Not only does it have two days of battery life, but water resistance as well.
Sennheiser CX 686G Sports

Sennheiser is a trusted name when it comes to audio products, and its sweat- and microbe-resistant earphones make for a great choice this Holi. Light weight construction coupled with an in-line microphone makes this an even sweeter deal.
Altec Lansing Lifejacket 2
Price: Rs. 11,000 (approx)
Altec Lansing has gone all out and made a Bluetooth speaker that is not only waterproof, but also dustproof, sandproof, shockproof and snowproof. The sound quality has taken a slight hit, but its incredible durability makes it a good buy.
Logitech UE BOOM

Logitech's UE Boom has been one of the best Bluetooth speakers available in India. It delivers clean, crisp audio, with reliable battery life and water resistance.

It can sustain drops from up to 2.1m, is waterproof up to 15m, freezeproof down to -10 degree Celsius, crushproof up to 100kg, and is of course dustproof. That said, it has a 16MP, 1/2.3-inch type CMOS sensor, with native ISO performance of 6400.
