When you buy a smartwatch under Rs 10,000, you’re not buying a smartwatch, you’re buying a fitness tracker with a bigger display and the same pattern can be seen at a 20k price tag or even more.
So when you spend more than 20k on a smartwatch, you need to make sure whether the smartwatch can make calls or not, how accurate the smartwatch provides the data, and how is the software experience.
I have added the top best smartwatches under Rs 25,000 in this article but not all the watches can make calls without the smartphone, so even at a 25k price tag, you need to make compromises.
Still, if you want that calling feature that you can use without a smartphone, you need to spend more than 25k on a smartwatch.
Now let’s not talk much, let’s talk about smartwatches under 25k with full details, so you can get a clear idea, of what you’re getting at Rs 25,000.

Let me put it this way if your budget is Rs 25,000 and if you want the best Android Smartwatch then as of now, Galaxy Watch 4 is the best option available.
The watch is also available in the LTE version too but that will cost you more than 25k, the non-LTE version is priced at Rs 23,999.
The Galaxy Watch 4 has all the sensors like Accelerometer, gyro, heart rate, barometer Natural language commands, and dictation Samsung Pay.
By the way, for the first time, Samsung has partnered with Google for a smartwatch and because of that, we now have Wear OS on the Samsung smartwatch.
The watch is running on OneUI 3.0 based on Android Wear OS. It has 16GB of internal storage and 1.5GB Ram along with a 247mAh battery.
One thing to note, the Galaxy Watch 4 is not compatible with iOS, it only works on Android smartphones.

For those who don’t know, the LTE version doesn’t need a smartphone, you can insert a SIM card into the smartwatch and make calls and use it as a smartphone. Now, the non-LTE version can also make calls but it needs a smartphone. (Galaxy Watch Active 2 uses eSIM).
Coming back to Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, it comes with a 1.4-inches rounded AMOLED display with 50m Water Resistance.
It has Bluetooth 5.0 which means, the watch can be used with any smartphone, whether it’s Samsung or not but some of the features only work with Samsung devices.
The watch weight is 230 grams it will last for a day with full charging. Also, this is a proper smartwatch which means, it supports apps like Spotify.
As you can tell from the name, the watch also has all the fitness features, 4 stage Sleep, Activity with continuous HRM & Stress monitoring, and heart rate monitoring.
It also has BP monitoring but subject to Indian laws they don’t allow the BP monitor to function, so till India passes the law to enable this feature, the BP monitor on the watch will not function.

We all know Apple devices last longer whether it’s a smartwatch or smartphone. The Apple Watch Series 3 was launched on 22 September 2017 and still, this is the best smartwatch to buy for under Rs 25,000.
Don’t buy Apple Watch Series 3, if you don’t have an iPhone because it doesn’t work with Android devices. The watch comes with LTE and non-LTE versions and as I have said, the price will be different for each version.
The Apple Watch Series 3 comes with a 1.65-inches Retina display and it’s running on Watch OS 7.5 while under the hood, it has an Apple S3 chipset.
New Launch: Apple Watch SE
What else can I say about this watch, its the cheapest smartwatch available for iPhone? Now, if you’re using iPhone and if you can spend 5k more then do take look at New Apple Watch SE.
Huawei GT 2 Sport
|Display||1.39-inches AMOLED touch display|
|Resolution||454 x 454 pixels|
|Chipset & OS||Kirin A1 Chipset|
|Storage||4GB 32MB RAM|
|Sensors||Accelerometer, gyro, heart rate, barometer, compass|
|Battery Size||455 mAh|
|Colors||Titanium Grey Stainless Steel, Black Stainless Steel, Stainless Steel|
The Huawei GT 2 Sport smartwatch comes with 1.39-inches rounded AMOLED display while it has Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. Also, you will be able to receive calls on this smartwatch but you need to keep a smartphone around the watch as it doesn’t have support for SIM cards.
The smartwatch also has all the fitness features like Continuous heart rate monitoring, supports resting heart rate, single heart rate, continuous heart rate, and other measuring features.
The Huawei GT 2 Sport smartwatch is running Proprietary OS while it’s powered by Kirin A1 chipset. It has a 455 mAh battery and the battery will last for two weeks as per Huawei but that’s not true, it will give about 8 to 10 days of battery life (Depending on, how you use the watch).
This is a water resistance smartwatch which means, you can go swimming while wearing the watch. By the way, the watch doesn’t support 3rd party apps, so you have to use what Huawei has added to the watch.
Overall, Huawei GT 2 Sport is a good option but if you don’t like the design then let’s take look at another smartwatch that has the same features but has a different design.
Amazfit GTS 2

Now, again, if you don’t like the design of Amazfit GTS 2 then don’t worry, you can take look at Amazfit GTR 2 which has the same features as Amazfit GTS 2 but it comes with rouned design, just click on watch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is a good option under Rs 23,000 in India because it offers good value at a 23k price tag but still, if you don’t want to spend 23,000 then Amazfit GTS 2/GTR 2 is also a good option.
