The overwhelming initial response we have received on the product reiterates the acceptance of our brand by consumer in India.”

It also features a bunch of sensors including accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, optical heart rate sensor, ambient light, and barometer sensor. The Watch GT also comes with sleep tracking and there is an inbuilt GPS as well.
