Here are five fitness watches you can opt forFitness watches do more than just tell the time; they help you understand your body.
Fitness watches have become a fashion accessory in the past few years. While many use these wearable devices to get in with the trend, others are drawn towards its primary function of keeping track of their health—in full detail. These wristbands can track how many steps you’ve walked and monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, even your oxygen level. It then uses this information to calculate and track a range of other things, like how many calories you’ve burned.
Here is a list of relatively affordable fitness watches you can buy in Kathmandu:
If price isn’t an issue for you, then you can get the LEMFO LEMX—you will not be disappointed with it. First and foremost, the watch is stylish. You can wear it during your morning jog, at the gym or even at a board meeting. It has 1 GB RAM, a built-in 8MP camera and a 2.03 inch screen. And it doesn’t end there. The watch is also waterproof and has 900mAh battery. Along with these features, the watch comes with built-in nano sim card slots and supports 4G connection and hands-free phone calls—it’s basically a phone on your wrist.
For fitness freaks, the watch offers other options too. It has a heart rate monitor, a pedometer and various sports modes as per your choice. If you’re not happy with the apps, you can also replace them as well, as the machine supports various applications available on android.
Priced at Rs28,000, the watch comes within the same price bracket as a smartphone, but using this will make you realise that you don’t need a smartphone.
If you want something similar to the LEMFO LEMX but at half the price, then the S2 is ideal for you. While it doesn’t have the same features as the LEMFO LEMX, it is as stylish and has most of its features like monitoring sleep, heart rate and blood pressure, and oxygen.
The watch’s performance also sets it apart. It tries to consume as little power as possible and can last up to 30 days on standby.
Another quality that sets this one apart is that it supports eight languages (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, German, French, Russian and Polish). Priced at Rs15,000, it might be a bit over budget for most, but as you can wear it while jogging or while at a business meeting, the price might just be worth it.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit E 2019
If you don’t want anything fancy, and want a simple but reliable watch, you can opt for the Samsung Galaxy Fit E 2019. It’s perfect for fitness enthusiasts, as it can track activities such as walking and running. Using a built-in array of sensors that consists of an accelerometer, gyroscope, and heart rate monitor, it can also track biking activities. What the device also does is it sends an alert to you if your heart rate rises above a predefined level while resting. The watch also comes with an auto workout tracking feature, which detects three activities by default—walking, running, and dynamic workout. The watch is also capable of analysing your sleep patterns using its auto sleep tracking technology. Information such as the total elapsed sleep can be viewed through the Samsung Health app.
Priced at around Rs7,400, the watch isn’t as glamorous as the LEMFO LEMX, but it offers people what they are looking for.

Similar to Samsung’s Fit E, is Xiaomi’s MI Band 4. Many consider it the best budget fitness tracker. It has various modes of exercise like tracking, heart rate monitor, pedometer, calorie counter, customisable watch face and a band lock. The watch also has a 135 mAh battery that lasts upto 15 days. Along with that, it also boasts a Bluetooth 5.0 for faster and wider connectivity.
There is one problem with this watch though, which is priced at Rs6,000. You will have to change the interface from Chinese to English.
If you want to get something different from the watches mentioned above, the D13 is a good choice. It has similar features like some of the watches mentioned above, but it is cheaper. It comes with a fitness tracker, which monitors your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen and sleep. It also has a Bluetooth camera option.
Apart from that, the watch also has all major standard exercise functions like the pedometer, calorie, and consumption metre, which can be read via an app on your phone or the watch itself.
The watch also comes with a polymer lithium battery which has a seven-day playing time. The company also states that the watch will be fully charged in around two hours.
Priced at Rs5,000, the watch might not be the best looking, but as far as performance goes, it does match up to the rest.
