    Apple Watch is a smartwatch that basically acts as an extends the purpose of iPhone
    Apple Watch is the most personal device that the tech giant has ever created. It is Apple’s first attempt at making a smartwatch that extends the functionality of an iPhone. But then it is not for everyone. Here are the four important things to know before buying an Apple Watch:
    1. This watch works only with an iPhone, so if you don’t own one don’t think of this. Yes, go ahead if you are ready for a full ecosystem change with a capital cost of at least Rs 85,000.
