This question has been in everyone’s mind who browses websites like Amazon.in and Flipkart on a daily basis.

Most of us are on the look out for deals on products and cheap, super affordable gadgets they can buy from these sites.

I too have been seeing these generic Smartwatches available on these sites for just 5% of the price of a branded smart watches.

When the brands are selling their smart watches for Rs 10,000/- to Rs 15,000-, a generic cheap Chinese smartwatch costing just a fraction of it will definitely drag your attention towards it.

While I know what kind of quality they will offer for Rs 500, I still went ahead and bought one just to show you guys whether it is worth your price or now. Because well, it’s just Rs 500, something we spend on Pizza on weekends.

So, is it worth the price? Let’s find out

I went ahead and Ordered the smartwatch that kept showing up in the recommendations in the Amazon.in app. The price of the smartwatch I ordered was Rs 600. I got the package in two days

Rs 628 to be precise. I got the package in two days, because, Amazon Prime. and here is the unboxing.

I am was excited to show you guys what a Rs 600 Watch can do for you, or will it be better than the Rs 900 Mi Band that only tracks my activity, because, well, this thing has got a display right?

So in the box, we get the box which seems a used one, it was not a new one. Even the documentation also seems to be a pretty old paper.

And even the Watch was a used one, perhaps somebody had been using it for a while, there were scratches everywhere, and it is not even turning on.

I charge it up for a while to see if it can be turned on

I charged it for about half an hour from my Phone Charger, then Tried Switching it on several times, it did not switch on.

I bought without any expectations, so I was ready for it but I did not expect it to be this bad.

So, it worth your money? Well, a Big NO.

I filed a refund on Amazon.in as fast as I could, and it was picked up by the courier guy the next day and the fund was initiated.
