India is currently in the third phase of lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19. During this lockdown, a number of relaxations have been implemented, like allowing e-commerce platforms to start delivering non-essential products to Green and Orange zones.
Now that a few of these restrictions have slowly been lifted, we are seeing various new electronic devices like smartphones and smartwatches being launched in the country. Today we will be taking a look at all of the smartwatches that are going to launch very soon in India.
Huawei Watch GT 2e
Huawei has just launched its Watch GT 2e in India priced at Rs 11,990. The watch is being made available on both Flipkart and Amazon. Customers purchasing the watch before May 21 will get a free pair of the company’s own AM61 Bluetooth Earphones.
Huawei Watch GT 2e comes with a circular stainless steel body with an integrated strap. It is available in Graphite Black, Lava Red, Mint Green and Icy White colour options.
The watch sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED and is powered by the company’s own Kirin A1 processor. It comes with 100 workout modes, which include 15 dedicated professional workout modes.
