Durable and great build quality makes this device suitable for Indian users. The price is a little on the higher side and users will rather go for a good mobile phone instead of a smartwatch for this price. However there will be a segment who would require an all in one smart watch which can be used for easy notifications and great looks. Even though it lacks some features that other devices of the same category offer, it’s a bold try by an Indian company. With TITAN’s brand name on it we can expect a good post sales service with their vast sales network.
