It is touted to have a charge time of around an hour. For connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5.1. The smartwatch also has the ability to store up to 300 songs as it comes with 512MB of in-built storage.
Portronics will face direct competition from brands like Gionee, who have also launched smartwatches in the recent past. The GSW6, GSW8 smartwatches from Gionee support calling functionality from the watch itself. They are powered with dedicated Bluetooth for calling as well as music.
With STYLFIT GSW6, one can measure blood oxygen saturation level, monitor heart rate, and other health features such as sleep monitor, pedometer, calorie counter, etc. Furthermore, the Stylfit GSW8 gets its own in-built speaker, the same as the GSW6. You can control the music from the watch, and as it has a microphone, you can take calls with the watch itself.
