Best Smartwatches in Nepal:

1. Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series

Samsung is pretty much the king of Android smartwatches right now. So it should come as no surprise when I say that the new Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are some of the best smartwatches you could find in Nepal. It builds on the success of last year’s Watch 4 lineup by adding a couple of iterative, but useful upgrades. Unfortunately, the beloved physical bezel that we last saw on the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic has been abandoned this time.

Instead, both the Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro feature a digital bezel for quicker navigation through the UI. But the Pro model makes it somewhat easier to use the digital bezel because of its raised edges. The Watch 5 Pro is also the more powerful of the two in multiple ways. First and foremost, its massive 590mAh battery is rated to last up to 80 hours under normal usage. And even with a fairly heavy usage pattern, the Watch 5 Pro lasted us about 2 and a half days.

Improved charging speed

Samsung has also bumped the charging speed this time. Exactly by double. As a result, you can get a workday’s worth of battery life with just 30 minutes of charge on the Watch 5 series. Other than this, the Watch 5 Pro also lets you import a GPX file of your route for turn-by-turn navigation via Google Maps.

This is further complemented by the “Track Back” feature which gives you directions to your original route without having to memorize anything by yourself. The Watch 5 Pro also ships with a D-Buckle Sport band by default. And I must say that it looks a lot sleeker than the usual sport band on the standard Galaxy Watch 5. Even in terms of durability, the Watch 5 Pro has a tougher Titanium case whereas the Watch 5 features Samsung’s Armor Aluminum case.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, 5 Pro - Design, Display

Up from, you’re looking at either a 1.2 or 1.4″ Super AMOLED display here. Both of them are protected by Sapphire crystal glass which Samsung claims is significantly more robust than the Gorilla Glass DX/DX+ solution on the Watch 4 lineup.

Besides, the Watch 5 lineup is powered by the same Exynos W920 chip with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. They run on the Wear OS 3.5 platform (with One UI Watch 4.5) on top and Samsung also promises 4 years of software updates for these smartwatches.

As for health tracking, there aren’t many upgrades this time. The Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro support 24-hour heart rate and stress monitoring, alongside sleep, body composition analysis, and more. They are equipped with a new infrared skin temperature for better health screening (including improved sleep tracking). But at the time of writing this article, Samsung hasn’t enabled it yet.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, Watch 5 Pro Specifications:

  • Body: Armor Aluminum/Titanium frame
    • 40mm: 40.4 x 39.3 x 9.8mm, 28.7 gm
    • 44mm: 44.4 x 43.3 x 9.8mm, 33.5 gm

  • Buy Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 here (40mm | 44mm)
  • Buy Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro here

However, if you’d rather save up some money for the last-gen Galaxy Watch 4 (buy here) or Watch 4 Classic (buy here), then that’s perfectly fine as well. Except for the Watch 5 Pro’s exceptional battery life, you won’t be missing out on a whole lot by going with last year’s Galaxy Watch 4 series (review) anyway. Not to mention, the Classic model even retains the aforementioned physical rotating bezel.

2. Apple Watch Series 7

The next entry in our list of best smartwatches in Nepal is the Apple Watch Series 7. It’s the successor to the Watch Series 6 which is still available in Nepal and still one of the best smartwatches, by the way. However, it does not bring any major upgrades to its predecessor. It’s a widely held belief that Apple makes one of the best smartwatches.

So, it’s a big challenge for the company to maintain that status quo and one can not deny that it’s difficult to go further every 12 months. As a result, Apple’s latest iterations have failed to ignite sufficient excitement—while still being the best. Is this what suffering from success looks like?

Apple Watch Series 7 Design and Display

Anyway, the Series 7 is available at 41mm and 45mm which is 1mm larger than the 40mm and 44mm options of previous generations. The 41mm aluminum non-LTE variant starts at $399, while the LTE variant costs $499. Likewise, the 45mm non-LTE model with aluminum build goes for $429 whereas, the LTE variant costs $100 extra. You may also choose different materials such as Steel, Titanium, Nike, and Hermès, but they require an extra chunk of your money.

So, this one’s definitely not the most affordable wearable you could have on your wrist. Still, with its integration of the best-in-class health tracking features and a seamless smartwatch experience, one might be able to justify its pricing.

Familiar design

The Watch 7 has the same squarish design as before, but this time the screen is bigger, and the bezels surrounding the displays are considerably smaller. As a result, the screen has a much more prominent footprint that will undoubtedly look excellent on your wrist. It’s an OLED screen and the colors look vibrant, everything looks as sharp as ever, and the display is 70% brighter than the Series 6.

Thus, outdoor visibility is no worry since the Watch 6 is bright enough for outdoor usage. Likewise, just like its predecessor, Watch Series 7 supports Always-on Display too. Moreover, Apple has redesigned the buttons across the system to take advantage of the larger screens. It also brings a full QWERTY keyboard—the first in any Apple watch—that you can use to reply to messages with just a tap or swipe.

Likewise, navigating through the screen via swipes or scrolls is no problem and the digital crown further improves this experience. The watch boots on watchOS 8 and brings health tracking features like blood oxygen, heart rate, ECG and it can even measure bike fall detection. Apart from this, it is IP6X and WR50 certified against water resistance so you don’t need to worry about getting water into the watch.

Apple Watch Series 7 (Aluminium) Specifications:

  • Body:
    • 41mm: 41 x 35 x 10.7mm, 32 gm
    • 45mm: 45 x 35 x 10.7mm, 38.8 gm

3. Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro

Another strong contender in the smartwatch sector is Huawei. Following the US ban, the company has been focusing more on IoT products rather than on smartphones. The Watch GT 3 Pro is Huawei’s most recent smartwatch to release in Nepal.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro - Display 1

Its circular dial makes for a classic and elegant look and the body is made entirely of metal which is complemented by stainless steel frames. On the right frame, there’s a crown with a customizable button beneath it. Available in either 43mm or 46mm variants, the Watch GT 3 Pro accepts either 20 or 22mm straps. However, only the 46mm variant is available in Nepal. For swimmers in mind, Huawei has also certified Watch GT 3 Pro with 5 ATM and IP68 certification.

Upfront, there is a 1.43-inch AMOLED panel with Sapphire glass on the 46mm model—while the 42 mm variant hosts a slightly smaller 1.32-inch display instead. As the perk of an AMOLED screen, it supports Always on display while the brightness is also enough for indoors as well as outdoors. There’s an auto-brightness feature too, but we found it to be not as flawless as we expected.

All-things Huawei

In terms of watch faces, there are over hundreds of options to choose albeit there is no way to customize it to your preference. It runs on Huawei’s own HarmonyOS 2.0 and is powered by an Arm Cortex-M processor.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro - Crown

While in-house Harmony OS may deliver better optimization, the lack of Google service makes for an unpleasant experience. For downloading third-party apps and such, one has to rely on Huawei’s App Gallery—but there aren’t many of them, be it in terms of watch faces or fitness-related apps.

However, unlike WearOS-powered smartwatches, the Watch GT 3 Pro currently allows you to respond with emojis and built-in short responses. There are even a handful of third-party apps for this smartwatch. You can also make or receive calls through the watch itself—thanks to the built-in speaker and microphone. But there’s no dialer to manually enter the number. Instead, one can add up to 10 favorite contacts on the compatible app to make a call.

In terms of health and fitness features, it supports blood oxygen, heart rate, and sleep monitoring while the built-in GPS lets you trail your routes without requiring a smartphone. Finally, the Watch GT 3 Pro delivers exceptional battery life with 14 days of backup with continuous SpO2, heart-rate monitoring, and other features turned on. In limited markets (excluding Nepal), it also supports ECG measurements.

What about the regular Huawei Watch GT 3?

But if you can settle with slightly less premium build quality, battery life, and a couple of health and fitness tracking features, then the regular Huawei Watch GT 3 is also one of the best smartwatches available in Nepal right now. Like its Pro sibling, this guy is also available in the larger 46mm case. It runs on Huawei’s own HarmonyOS 2.0 platform and it can track over 100 sports modes.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro (46mm) Specifications:

  • Body: 45.9 x 45.9 x 11 mm, 42.6 gm, Titanium frame
  • Strap: Black fluoroelastomer, Grey leather, Titanium (22mm universal)
  • Color Options: Titanium

4. Amazfit GTR 3 Pro

The fourth entry on our list of best smartwatches in Nepal is the Amazfit GTR 3 Pro. This is actually the first “Pro” watch from the company in the GTR/GTS lineup and it distinguishes itself from the regular GTR 3 and GTS 3 with a couple of unique features. As the name suggests, it has a round AMOLED display like the GTR 3. But this one’s slightly larger at 1.45″ instead of 1.39″. Amazfit has also complemented the larger screen with a higher pixel count.

Amazfit GTR 3 Pro GTS 3 Price Nepal Specs Features Availability Launch

While all three watches in this lineup run on Amazfit’s new Zepp OS, only the Pro model has built-in WiFi connectivity. It also has a built-in microphone and speakers so that you can make voice calls (or listen to music) directly from the watch itself. In terms of health and fitness tracking, the GTR 3 Pro also adds a temperature sensor that can take skin and ambient temperature readings.

Now, if a relatively sleeker design is up to your wheelhouse, then the Amazfit GTS 3 might be among the best smartwatches for you to buy in Nepal. Its aluminum alloy body weighing just 24.4 grams (without straps) is lightweight and ultimately feels extremely comfortable to wear. However, if you like a more traditional rounded body, the GTR 3 falls under your radar. The Amazfit GTR 3 has a thickness of 10.8mm and weighs 32 grams.

Swift Zepp OS

Moreover, both the watch boots on the new Zepp OS and are powered by Huangshan 2s chip. The purpose of this new OS is to make mini smartwatch apps that help to increase battery endurance. Meanwhile, the Zepp OS is just 55MB in size, which is 1/10 the size of its previous Amazfit OS and 1/28 the size of Apple’s watchOS 8. This makes it compatible with low-power as well as high-power smartwatch chips.

You won’t be able to download apps from the Play Store, but Zepp OS does support app downloads from its own app store. However, there are only a handful of apps available at the moment.

AMOLED display

Furthermore, both the watches flaunt an AMOLED panel on the front. The GTS 3 has a 1.75″ display while the GTR 3 has a 1.39″ screen. Its AMOLED panel means you get to enjoy Always-on-display while both of them have 1000nits of peak brightness. So, the display has great contrast and sharpness. Regardless, its touch response is excellent and the Zepp OS is pretty responsive and well-designed. Meanwhile, the company has also upped the ante by offering Amazon Alexa support.

Over on to the health tracking features, these smartwatches pack BioTracker 3.0 biometric sensor that uses six photodiodes and two LEDs for accurate readings. You can measure your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and other basic stuff like stress levels, sleep cycles, etc. Likewise, they bring a total of 90 sports modes with automatic recognition of 8 of them.

5. Amazfit Zepp Z

The next entry from Amazfit in our list of best smartwatches in Nepal is the Zepp Z. Technically, Zepp is now what the company is called after Amazfit rebranded itself. And the Zepp Z here is the company’s most premium smartwatch to date. Rather than pumping it with the most headlining features, the company has taken the luxury route with the Zepp Z.

Amazfit Zepp Z Price in Nepal Specs Features Availability

Forged with a single piece of NTC-coated titanium alloy, this smartwatch is a premium piece of technology that fits into your wrist. Adding to the luxurious design is a polycarbonate and glass fiber bottom case alongside a leather strap. By default, Zepp Z ships with a brown leather strap but you can always swap it with something that’s more up to your style.

Furthermore, Zepp Z implements a crown on the right alongside a couple of more buttons. With all this, the company is obviously trying to sway luxury watch enthusiasts into the world of smartwatches. Here, the button on the top triggers all the health-related features while the one on the bottom can be customized to launch the app of your choice.

Stellar display

Moving on to the display, Zepp Z has a top-of-the-line 1.39″ AMOLED panel that covers 100% of the NTSC color gamut. Likewise, it boasts an impressive 550 nits of peak brightness and a sharp 454 x 454 resolution with 326 PPI. So, from excellent color reproduction and readability to outdoor visibility, this watch isn’t going to disappoint. On top of this, it is treated with an anti-fingerprint coating for better scratch resistance against fingerprints.

Zepp Z Design and Display

In terms of health and fitness tracking, the Zepp Z is pretty basic for a premium smartwatch. There’s 24/7 heart rate, blood oxygen, stress monitoring, sleep tracking, and such. According to the company, it has used BioTracker 2 PPG optical sensor that reportedly delivers relatively more accurate readings. Its sleep tracking ability includes measuring deep, light, REM sleep, and even naps (above 20 minutes).

On the other hand, there are 90 sports modes here including 12 professional ones. And because Zepp Z is 5 ATM water-resistant, it can track your swimming sessions too. Interestingly, this smartwatch has Amazon Alexa voice assistant built-in. Using this, you can accomplish various tasks including toggling watch settings, making simple web searches, and even controlling Alexa-enabled smart home devices.

Amazfit Zepp Z Specifications:

  • Body: 46.3 x 46.3 x 10.75mm, 40 gm (without straps)
  • Strap: Leather strap, 22mm (pin buckle design)

6. Xiaomi Watch S1 Active

Xiaomi is a popular name in the wearable industry in Nepal, which is largely thanks to its affordable Mi Band lineup of fitness trackers. But apart from this, Xiaomi also sells premium wearables, and the Watch S1 Active is the first one to officially arrive in Nepal. And it definitely deserves to be on our list of best smartwatches in Nepal as well for its balance of comfortable design and well-rounded set of health and fitness tracking features.

Xiaomi Watch S1 Active - Display 1

Starting with the design, the Xiaomi Watch S1 Active features a sporty look and a lightweight build quality. And it feels really comfortable to wear as well. It doesn’t have a robust build material like the Galaxy Watch 5 series or something blingy like the Zepp Z above, but that’s fine.

As for the strap, the Watch S1 Active comes with a TPU sport band by default but you can always swap it with something else as it supports a 22mm universal strap. Its display is also pretty impressive. This 1.43″ AMOLED panel gets bright enough even in bright outdoor situations and everything looks sharp and vibrant on this screen. And although the Watch S1 Active doesn’t run on WearOS so you can download different watch faces from the Play Store, Xiaomi’s own selection of watch faces is pretty great.

No display protection

But one thing you need to know is that there’s no Gorilla Glass or Sapphire glass protection on top of this display. That means it is vulnerable to scratches fairly easily—although you can easily find an aftermarket screen protector. Talking about durability, Xiaomi has also secured 5 ATM water resistance for the Watch S1 Active.

Another thing about it that might impress you is its on-watch phone call support. And the actual call quality is also pretty decent, which is further backed by a decent speaker and haptic feedback. I would’ve liked to see a dialer app in the watch itself though. For now, you can redial the contacts on your call history, or accept a call when the watch is connected to the phone.

Xiaomi Watch S1 Active Review

Xiaomi Watch S1 Active brings your standard suite of health and fitness tracking features. Including all-day heart rate, stress, and blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring. But it can’t do 24-hour SpO2 measurement, whereas we also found its sleep tracking to be less than reliable. Despite all this, the Watch S1 Active’s battery life is impressive. Xiaomi promises 12 days of endurance under normal usage and you can expect at least a week’s worth of battery life here.

Xiaomi Watch S1 Active Specifications:

  • Body: 46.5 x 47.3 x 11mm, 36.3 gm, Metal bezel
  • Strap: Black fluoroelastomer, Grey leather, Titanium (22mm universal)
  • Color Options: Ocean Blue, Space Black, Moon White
  • Display: 1.43″ Always-on AMOLED panel, 450 nits brightness
  • Resolution: 466 x 466 pixels, 326 PPI
  • Durability: 5 ATM waterproof
  • Chipset: Unspecified
  • Software: MIUI Watch 1.0
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Ambient light, Atmospheric, Geomagnetic, Gyroscope, Heart rate (with blood oxygen sensor), Built-in GPS / Glonass / Galileo / BDS / QZSS
  • Storage: N/A
  • Phone Calls: Built-in microphone, speaker (Emergency SOS support)
  • Sports Mode: 117 sports modes
  • Battery: 470mAh (Up to 12 days)
  • Companion App: Mi Fitness (Android | iOS)
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 22,999

7. OnePlus Watch

After months of rumors, OnePlus finally unveiled its first smartwatch back in March 2021. And eventually, it has found a spot in our list of best smartwatches in Nepal as well. However, it was received rather poorly by the tech community—primarily because of the horde of features that are missing on this smartwatch.

First off, the OnePlus Watch runs on RTOS which is pretty limited. From non-actionable notifications to the lack of any third-party apps, it delivers a pretty restrictive smartwatch experience. But since it doesn’t run on WearOS, you can expect a pretty amazing battery life here. According to the company, the OnePlus Watch will last you two full weeks under regular usage.

OnePlus Watch Launched in Nepal

And since the watch supports fast charging, juicing it up is not that much of a hassle either. So, if excellent battery life is what you’re expecting when browsing for the best smartwatches in Nepal, then this could still be a decent choice. Even under heavy GPS usage, the OnePlus Watch supposedly lasts 25 hours.

Moving on to the design, its circular dial looks pretty standard. It is available in either stainless steel or cobalt alloy case options but the latter isn’t available in Nepal yet. Its fluoroelastomer strap is pretty standard stuff as well. Anyway, there are two buttons on the side to help you navigate through the watch more efficiently. The one on the top is embossed with a “OnePlus” branding that launches the installed apps while the next one is a power button.

Okay-ish display

Getting to the display, the OnePlus Watch brings a 1.39″ AMOLED panel with a sharp pixel density of 326 PPI. The display can get plenty bright too, so this smartwatch certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front. While it didn’t support Always-on Display (AoD) at launch, OnePlus eventually pushed an OTA update back in May enabling AoD on its smartwatch.

There’s also 4GB of onboard storage to store music on the watch itself—although only 2GB has been designated for storing your tunes. Furthermore, the OnePlus Watch has been integrated into the company’s lineup of TVs as well. This smartwatch lets you control settings like volume levels on a OnePlus TV, while a neat feature automatically turns off the TV when the watch detects you’ve been asleep for 30 minutes or more.

In terms of fitness tracking, this smartwatch can track more than 110 workout modes. It is also 5 ATM and IP68 water-resistant which has been complemented by swim tracking that can measure your pulse, distance, calories, speed, and SWOLF efficiency. Apart from this, the OnePlus Watch can record heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep, step, and stress levels as well.

OnePlus Watch Specifications:

  • Body: 46.4 x 46.4 x 10.9mm, 76 gm, 316L stainless steel/cobalt alloy
  • Strap: Fluoroelastomer strap

8. Amazfit T-Rex Pro

Next entry in our list of best smartwatches to buy in Nepal is a rugged one. Here, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro is specifically for those who prefer a big, bold design, reminiscent of Casio G-Shock watches. It’s an all-terrain, weatherproof smartwatch that’s designed to last you through your toughest workouts in the harshest environment. I’ve personally never been a fan of such rugged smartwatches but the Amazfit T-Rex Pro has done a great job at changing my perspective.

First off, it’s not as nearly as uncomfortable to put on as I’d anticipated. Weighing just 59.4 grams, I have no problem having this smartwatch on my wrist. Plus, its silicone strap is super comfortable and flexible too. Amazfit also says this strap uses a sweat-wicking design to keep moisture off of your wrist.

Amazfit T-Rex Pro - Color Options

The display is shadowed by a raised bezel while the four edges hold a button each. The left frame includes up/down buttons for navigation while the select button triggers the workout menu or selects an item. Finally, the back button also doubles as a screen turn-off button.

To validate its rugged looks, the T-Rex is MIL-STD-810G certified too. This ensures an uncompromising performance in situations like extreme humidity, up to -40ºC temperature, and even ice and freezing rain. Moreover, it is also 10 ATM waterproof (up to 100 meters) which is twice as strong compared to 5 ATM resistance you’d find on every other smartwatches on this list so far. The T-Rex Pro has built-in GPS as well.

Rugged to the core

Other than these, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro can record a total of 100 workout modes including walking, cycling, swimming, triathlon, skiing, etc. As it is loaded with Amazfit’s ExerSense algorithm, the watch can detect 8 workout automatically. Including running, walking, treadmill, cycling, swimming, and more. After a workout, the watch also provides information like recovery time, training effect, etc. And in terms of health monitoring, this rugged smartwatch has everything from heart rate, stress, SpO2, to sleep tracking.

It also has built-in GPS, so it can track your workout trail without having to carry a smartphone. Likewise, the T-Rex Pro runs on RTOS instead of Zepp OS which is what you’ll find on the more recent Amazfit smartwatches. As a result, the notifications are non-actionable and it doesn’t support phone calls or local music storage either.

The 1.3” AMOLED screen is vibrant, sharp, and gets bright enough for outdoor usage too. This display is protected by tempered glass while the company says it features an anti-fingerprint coating as well. Moreover, watch face options are pretty limited here.

Regardless, the custom UI/UX is pretty responsive and actions like syncing watch faces or pushing updates are usually completed in a jiffy. Likewise, I’m fond of its battery endurance too. With about an hour of GPS usage and other settings at their default, I was able to get around 20 days of battery life, just like Amazfit promises.

9. Amazfit Zepp E (Circle/Square)

Okay, the final entry on our list of best smartwatches in Nepal is yet another Amazfit watch. The Zepp E is a step below Amazfit’s GTR/GTS lineup, and it emphasizes more on a sleek, lightweight, and premium-looking design—while also offering a decent suite of health monitoring abilities. It is available in either circle or square form factor with an identical set of features on both of them. So you can decide to go with whichever form factor is more comfortable for you without sacrificing anything.

Amazfit Zepp E

For premium visual aesthetics, the Zepp E brings a stainless steel body. Instead of plastic. Amazfit even says the circle Zepp E has a unibody design for a seamless look. Both variants can be fitted with a 20mm universal strap, while you can choose between silicone, leather, or fluoroelastomer strap by default. But if you plan on wearing this watch—or any other watch when swimming—going with a leather strap is probably not a good idea.

Circular or square AMOLED display

Amazfit Zepp E also features a nice AMOLED screen with Always-on display support. The circular model has a smaller 1.28″ display compared to the larger 1.65″ unit on the square model. Despite their size, contents look equally bright, vibrant, and sharp on either Zepp E.

As for fitness tracking, this guy supports a total of 11 workout modes. That definitely doesn’t compare to other entries on our list of best smartwatches in Nepal with 100+ sports modes. But in practice, most people will be just fine with the basic workout tracking options like walking, running, cycling, etc. And since the watch itself is 5 ATM waterproof, it also supports swim tracking.

Amazfit ZEPP E - Models

The Zepp E includes Amazfit’s PAI health assessment system too. This feature basically considers your daily workout/exercise sessions—especially those that elevate the heart rate levels—and scores your day. The goal here is to maintain a PAI score of 100 throughout any given week. Other than this, the Amazfit Zepp E can keep track of your heart rate, stress, blood oxygen (SpO2) level, and sleep cycles too.

Running the show here is RTOS, which delivers a healthy balance of smart features and battery life. That means, unlike the WearOS-powered Android smartwatches, it doesn’t support actionable notifications or Google Play Store. And it doesn’t let you take or make phone calls from the watch since there’s no microphone and speaker onboard. At least the battery life on the Zepp E is pretty good, with Amazfit promising 7 days of endurance under typical usage. Or 15 days under basic mode.
