Price: Rs 3,499
AQ-Fit is a new technology startup in India. Their first product is a smartwatch that takes strong inspiration from the Apple Watch with its rectangular display and metal body.
While it looks premium, we also felt it was a tad heavier than we were expecting. It has a 1.33-inch colour IPS LCD isplay protected by Gorilla Glass 5. We didn’t see it pick up any scratches with normal use.
The screen has good viewing angles but brightness levels are not too great (it was difficult to see much outdoors, even at full brightness). That being said, it’s loaded with features like continuous heart rate tracking, blood pressure, blood oxygen, sleep monitoring and the usual fitness measurements.

Battery life is a solid 6 days. All the data is synced to the companion app which presents it in easy to understand graphical format and you can configure which app notifications should be visible on the watch too.
You also get 3 watch faces to choose from including one with a background photo of your choice. For the price, the W8 is a good first attempt but we’d rather go for something like a Mi Band 2 or Amazfit Cor.
