If you still have some cash left over after buying an iPhone 6S, you might want to spend it on the Apple Watch, which is finally coming to India on November 6, according to Apple's India website.
The Watch is Apple's first wearable device that not only tracks your fitness (in addition to reminding you to stand up every hour), but also gives you email, text messages, notifications and apps right on your wrist.
It is available in two sizes -- 38 mm and 42 mm -- and depending on which model you buy, prices in the United States range from $349 (roughly ₹23,000) to $17,000 (roughly ₹11 lakh) before taxes.
It also features dozens of bands available in different materials like rubber, leather and metal that users can easily switch between.
The Apple Watch has received mixed reviews so far. Its most vocal critics include Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who recently tweeted this:
Regarding the watch, Jony & his team created a beautiful design, but the functionality isn't compelling yet. By version 3, it will be.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 9, 2015
Apple hasn't announced how much the Watch will cost in India yet, but given how overpriced its latest phone in India is, we're guessing it will be north of ₹30,000. But what the heck. It's almost Diwali. That's as good an excuse as any to splurge.
