Smartwatches under Rs 3,000 used to be so basic and could be considered a fitness tracker in a watch's clothing. But it has changed and with the immense competition in the segment, we now have watches with even Bluetooth calling that was previously unheard of for this price.

If you are among them who are looking to experience a budget smartwatch on your wrist then this is the right price to experiment with.

Though before you make up your mind, let us remind you that these are very basic smartwatches and don't offer many smart or productive features. In fact, calling them an extension of a good fitness tracker won’t be wrong too -- though you get a slightly bigger screen and a few more additional features compared to any fitness tracker.

Best smartwatches under Rs 3,000

1. Amazfit Bip U

2. Realme Watch 3

3. Noise ColorFit Pro 4

4. Fire-Boltt Beast Pro

5. Noise Pulse Buzz

6. Dizo Watch 2

7. Boat Strom

Furthermore, these smartwatches are mainly capable of being your fitness companion as they do come with features such as a heart rate monitor and multiple sports mode tracking. Notifications mirroring from the phone to your wrist are also possible on all the smartwatches mentioned in the list. However, you won’t be able to respond to any messages.

Features like a SpO2 monitor, built-in GPS and BP monitoring can be considered a bonus at this price point.

In the current list of best budget smartwatches under Rs 3,000, we have one each from Amazfit, Noise, Fire-Boltt, Boat and Dizo. If you can spend a bit more, you can take a look at our under Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 buying guide
