It was supposed to be a year that promised a lot on the wearable tech front but failed to deliver on its expected promise. But, as 2015 comes to a close, we at The Quint, get you the list of top 5 smartwatches and health bands from the Indian market.

1. Apple Watch

To begin with, it’s not called an ‘iWatch’ — Apple calls their wearable timepiece the ‘Apple Watch’. Consumer interest in the Apple Watch might be dipping worldwide, but it’s still got plenty of takers, especially in India. Read more about Apple’s first wearable in this review.

Price: Rs 34,990 onwards


2. Motorola Moto 360 (2015)

Motorola’s Moto 360 smartwatch has made its way to India in five variants. In comparison to the first generation Moto 360, this year’s version has been crafted with design and style in mind, lacking in the 2014 version. It even works with an iPhone. Its safe to say that Motorola’s latest Moto 360 has the right mix to appeal to buyers looking for a classy-yet-smart wearable.

Price: Rs 19,999 onwards


3. Xiaomi Mi Band

At the global launch of the Mi 4i, Xiaomi also introduced the Mi Band in India this year. Mi Band is as cheap as it can get for a wearable. It notifies you about calls, message, tracks your steps and monitors your sleep patterns as well.

Not bad for the price and did we tell you about the 30-day battery life? Yep. Affordable and effective are two words that fit with Xiaomi Mi Band. Check out the Mi Band review here.

Price: Rs 799


4. Fitbit Surge

Fitbit Surge is a top-of-the-line fitness tracker, but it looks like a smartwatch. The screen is touch-responsive and always on, so it can also tell you the time. It’s easy to wear like an everyday watch. The Surge, like all Fitbit products, works with an app on your smartphone. Here’s more about the fitness wearable that’s not much of a smartwatch.

Price: Rs 19,990


5. Jawbone UP3

Jawbone UP3 has the look of a premium gadget that offers durability at the same time. The rubber-strapped band feels comfortable and can be worn even when you’re in the shower. Jawbone’s UP app has all the attributes that a fitness freak can ask for. Here’s our review of the Jawbone UP3.

Price: Rs 14,999
