It will be available in the US, UK, and countries like Japan, Taiwan, and Ireland. However, India is yet to see its launch. An expected price of approximately 30,000 INR is estimated in the country. The watch is expected to outshine several intelligent wearables in the market owing to its features coming from two leading companies, making it a potentially powerful device in terms of productivity and design.
