Lenovo has announced the launch of its latest smartwatch, Carme (HW25P) in India. Blending cutting-edge technology and sleek aesthetics, Lenovo Carme is a smartwatch focused on fitness enthusiasts and promises a smarter approach to leading a healthier lifestyle.
Yes, we know it’s just another smartwatch announcement. Yes, we know this is being launched in India, and not Western markets. And yes, we’re aware that this isn’t a highly specified wearable at that. We’re covering this mainly due to the price.
At INR 3,499, the Lenovo Carme (or model number HW25P) sits at the sub-£40 (~$50) mark, bringing a fitness-focused smart wearable to the masses. You don’t have to stump uyp in excess of £100/$125 for a basic current generation smartwatch or a second-hand last-generation device. The Lenovo Carme looks likely to fill a very glaring void in the market and deliver what is important for many who use a wearable, at a price point that many can afford.

This Lenovo smartwatch comes with 1.3-inch IPS colour display, one-touch sensor and IP68 waterproof and dustproof technology. The 2.5D curved surface design of the watch ensures that there is no blind angle, enabling users to read the content even in daylight. It also claims to offer up to 7 days of battery life on a single charge, something that very few other smartwatches that warrant an official announcement from a reputable mobile device manufacturer, can deliver.
The Lenovo Carme is available in two colour variants- Black and Green, Lenovo Carme, and will be available Flipkart and Croma, starting 15th September 2019.
Lenovo Carme offers comprehensive health and fitness features like pedometer, 24 hours heart rate monitor, sleep monitor and 8 sports mode which includes skipping, badminton, basketball, football, swimming, walking, running and cycling. The other notable features of the smartwatch include weather forecast, search for the phone, alarm reminder, stopwatch and smart notifications for emails, text messages, calls and other social media apps.
