If you are not familiar with the brand BoAt, I would ask why? The boAt is an Indian brand that offers impeccable headphones, speakers, and more.
Well, BoAt has smartwatches too including the BoAt Xtend available at just INR 2,999 at the time of writing this. It has a 1.69-inch LCD panel with an auto-brightness sensor. There’s Alexa integration that answers your queries.

You will find features like wrist raise, 5 ATM water-resistant, stress monitoring, displays notifications, and calls although you cannot receive the latter.
