At first glance, Lenovo Ego pretty much looks like the first watch we ever bought. It’s chunky, it’s sporty and it’s got black silicone straps. Reminds you of the toy watch-looking Casio we threw such a major fit for back in school days, doesn’t it? It’s 2019 and the Lenovo is a tad bit more than that. It still looks like a toy watch but comes equipped with a HR monitor, motion tracker, shows notifications from your phone, sleep monitor, steps counter and more skills that bring it one step closer to being called a smart watch. Claimed to have a battery life that lasts up to 20 days, the Lenovo Ego is compatible with both Android and iOS phones and can be paired via the Lenovo Life app. It features a 1.6in anti-reflective monochrome display and a dedicated ‘Light' button to illuminate the display. Vibrating alerts for alarms and incoming calls, text messages, emails, and social media apps is another feather in its ‘smart’ hat.. The remote camera feature allows you to click a picture from the connected phone camera with a single tap. The Lenovo Ego is priced at ₹1999 and you can pre-order one from Flipkart right now.
