Best smartwatches to buy in India under Rs 15,000
Fitbit Versa 2
Fitbit is a well-known brand when it comes to fitness apparel. You can consider buying the Fitbit Versa 2. It has a lightweight design with a square dial. So you will have no problem wearing it all day. You also get health tracking features like always-on heart rate monitoring, sleep, step tracking and more.

All this does not mean that it is a perfect watch. One of the biggest drawbacks of this smartwatch is that it does not support GPS and relies on a phone for GPS tracking.

The Versa 3 will cost you Rs 17,499, while the Fitbit Versa 2 will cost you Rs 13,799.
