The new boAt Xplorer watch comes with a rectangular case with a button on the side. It features a 1.3” full-colour 2.5 D curved touchscreen display with a resolution of 240×240 pixels. The new Timex Fit smartwatch also has the exact resolution of the Timex Fit watch, but it costs more than 5000. 

The watch already got four personalized cloud watch faces in it, and you can download additional watch faces from the companion app, the BoAt Pro Gear App.  

Health Tracking Features 

The BoAt Xplorer smartwatch comes with many helpful health tracking features such as wrist-based heart rate monitoring, a wellness mode, sleep tracking, guided meditation breathing, and a Menstruation Cycle Tracker. 

Unfortunately, it does not have a SpO2 sensor. If you need a built-in GPS and SpO2, you can go for Amazfit Bip U Pro, which is also priced under 5000.  

Fitness Tracking Features 

It hosts 12 sports modes which include: 

  1. Outdoor Running 
  2. Indoor Walking 
  3. Outdoor Walking 
  4. Indoor Running, 
  5. Outdoor Cycling, 
  6. Spinning Bike, Cricket 
  7. Hiking 
  8. Swimming 
  9. Open Swimming 
  10. Yoga 
  11. Rowing Machine 
  12. Elliptical Trainer 

Furthermore, it automatically tracks walking and running. The built-in GPS allows the device to track the route, outdoor activities like walking, running, cycling, etc., without a smartphone. It has 5 ATM water resistance, and this also makes it one of the best outdoor smartwatches in 2021.

Smart Features 

This affordable smartwatch hosts several useful features. It alerts you with vibration for SMS, call, and other smartphone app notifications. However, it does not allow you to respond to alerts from the smartwatch.  

The availability of music control in this entry-level smartwatch allows you to play, skip or pause smartphone music right from the watch without grabbing the smartphone.  


The BoAt claims that the battery can last for one week after a full recharge. However, the battery life may vary based on its usage. For example, the usage of GPS will drain the battery faster. It uses a USB Magnetic Charging Cable to charge the battery. 

Why Buy this Smartwatch?

The built-in GPS at an affordable price is the selling point of this smartwatch. It is ideal for people who are looking for a cheap running watch with onboard GPS. The GPS smartwatches like Garmin, Suunto, Fitbit, Apple, etc., costs you more than ₹11,000($150).

Our Verdict 

The BoAt Xplorer is a value-for-money package. It comes with all essential health and fitness tracking features like heart rate monitoring, stress monitoring. Not having a SpO2 sensor is a disadvantage, but the built-GPS makes it worth buying. You cannot even get a fitness tracker with GPS at this price. The Fitbit Charge, which is having a built-in GPS, costs you more than $150.
