The Boat Watch Iris is the most recent smartwatch in the budget segment to hit the market. The new smartwatch is now available in India, with sales starting today, Thursday, December 23 at 12 p.m. The circular smartwatch will likely compete with smartphone-first companies such as Realme and Xiaomi, wearables-focused companies such as Amazfit, and fellow Indian brands such as Noise.
The Boat Watch Iris has a circular AMOLED display that measures 1.39 inches in diameter. It also has a screen resolution of 454 x 454 pixels. The smartwatch’s display features numbers inlaid around the outside edge and a single button to the right for controlling the smartwatch’s various settings.
