Wearables, especially smartwatches have gone mainstream for a while now. In the pursuit of making technology more accessible than ever, manufacturers have been coming up with their own take on a classic and timeless gadget. And of course, Apple has a hand in it as well. The company has cycled through five generations of Apple Watch till now and reports about Series 6 have already surfaced the internet. But a piece of sad news for Nepalese enthusiasts is that no entry in the Apple Watch Series has officially entered the country. Even the authorized distributors of Apple products in Nepal are importing it through other mediums to deliver Apple Watch to domestic customers. And as it stands, there are the 3 generations of Apple Watch available in Nepal – Series 3, Series 4, and Series 5. Let’s check out the price and specs of the available Apple Watch in Nepal.

And about their pricing, because they’re not officially imported, most distributors levy approximately 20% charge on the US rate of the particular model as the selling price.

Apple Watch Series 3

Released in 2017, the Apple Watch Series 3 introduced cellular connectivity (LTE) in the company’s lineup of smartwatches. That means you can enjoy voice and data communication by connecting an eSIM. Besides that, it comes with a newer Apple S3 processor, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, in-built GPS, and more. There are two variants of the Apple Watch Series 3 with 38 and 42mm body. It is also water-resistant up to 50 meters. In terms of health-tracking, it has heart-rate monitoring, swim-tracking, etc.

At launch, the Series 3 came with watchOS 4 out-of-the-box, while it has been updated to the latest watchOS 6 as of now. But if you’re an iPhone user, you should note that the Series 3 isn’t compatible with iPhone 6 & older iPhones, and only work with 6s or newer models. Getting into storage, there is 16GB of onboard memory in the LTE version and only 8GB on the GPS-only variant.

Apple Watch Series 4

The past-gen Series 3 was an astounding hit and Apple had to somehow top that, and they did. With the new Watch Series 4, the company introduced a ground-breaking medical-grade ECG sensor, approved by the US FDA itself & the American Heart Association. That was a huge selling point for Series 4. Apple made full use of this sensor by having the watch detect motions like erratic & unexpected falls, which would then prompt an automatic call to the emergency services. There’s even an instance of the watch saving a guy’s life. At the end of the day, isn’t that the end goal of technological advancements?

Finally, let’s get into the latest Apple Watch Series 5. It is an incremental upgrade over the Series 4, which finally brings the much-demanded Always-on Display (AoD) feature. But that’s not all.

There are no physical changes than its predecessor except that the one with aluminum frame is made out of 100% recyclable aluminum.
