Review: Portronics Kronos AlphaUpdated: 25 October, 2020 07:53 IST
Portronics offers a 12-month warranty on the product. It also makes a great gift for the holiday season with prices starting at Rs 4,499.
The Kronos looks like a watch, but it is a little understated with its tones and colours, which makes it a good choice for work and working out. The smartwatch is dust and water-resistant, so while it may be okay to be splashed with the occasional handwashing and sweat, it might not survive a deep dive in the ocean. There are 12 workout modes on the watch. The built-in heart rate monitor matched readings with other watches I had on hand, which means it works well. The only problem is the watch continued to detect a heartbeat even when it wasn't on my hand. This is a problem because at times it gave me alarming readings of 140 when it was not on my hand and one time, when I was resting.
The companion software called VeryFitPro does a good job at pairing with the watch and recording everything the watch monitors. However, the interface needs improvement. If you are looking for an affordable, battery-efficient smartwatch that doesn't look like a band and are willing to ignore some of the shortfalls, this is it for you. Portronics offers a 12-month warranty on the product. It also makes a great gift for the holiday season with prices starting at Rs 4,499.
