Consumer electronics and accessories maker boAt has launched its newest smartwatch in India, called the boAt Watch Zenit. The device had been seen on e-commerce listings earlier and is going to sell on Amazon India. The company has been foraying into smartwatches for quite a while now, and the boAt Watch Zenit joins other devices, like the boAt Vertex smartwatch in the country. The homegrown company has been known for its affordably priced audio accessories so far, but has been expanding to the wearable category, especially after it got funding from Qualcomm earlier this year.
boAt Watch Zenit specs and features
On the specs front, the boAt Watch Zenit looks quite competitive against similarly priced devices in India. It has a 1.3 inch IPS display with a circular dial, and two buttons on the right side, which can be used for navigation and other functions. It has over 100 customisable watch faces and comes with IP67 certification, meaning it is dust and splash resistant. This IP rating also covers sweat resistance, making the watch useful for working out.
On the subject of workouts, the boAt Watch Zenit also has a built in heart rate monitor and SpO2 sensor, which can be used to measure blood oxygen levels. It can track the user’s daily sleep patterns, steps and distance covered. There’s a built in calorie counted on the device as well, and seven sports modes for walking, running, cycling, skipping, badminton, basketball and football.
In terms of productivity, the device can show social media notifications, incoming calls, provide message alerts, and controls for music and camera. There’s also a weather forecast function, which will show the forecast for the next six days. A game called Young Bird is also built in, while a feature called Theatre Mode will reduce the screen’s brightness and mute notifications when you’re in dark rooms, as in a movie theatre.
The company claims that the boAt Watch Zenit will provide seven days worth of battery life on each charge.
boAt Watch Zenit price and availability
As mentioned before, the boAt Watch Zenit will be sold on Amazon India, and at a price of Rs. 1,999. It will be available in Black, Grey and Blue colours and will sell from November 11 onwards.
