Is Apple Watch series 5 the most expensive smartwatch in Nepal?

There are many versions of the Apple watch series 5 in Nepal. But, the 44mm version with cellular as well as GPS is one of the most expensive smartwatches in Nepal. Since the price of smartwatches are always fluctuating, we cannot say for sure it is the most expensive smartwatch in Nepal.

What does it mean when a smartwatch is said to have IP68 rating or 5 ATM rating?

The IP68 rating means that your smartwatch can be submerged in 1.5 meters deep freshwater water for 30 minutes without any consequences. 5 ATM rating means that your watch can withstand a pressure of 50 meters of water column for 30 minutes. None of these means that you can take your smartwatch with you during a swim or a shower.

Things like this are always debatable. Every brand says that the OS they are using is the best. But, in my personal opinion, currently, the best smartwatch OS is watchOS 7.

Why are Apple’s gadgets always one of the best in their category?

Because when Apple makes a product they do not have to compromise the quality of their product to fit a certain budget. Plus, the resources Apple has also allowed it to invest heavily in research & development.

Yes, Samsung smartwatches are really good too. Although I find Apple smartwatches to be better than Samsung smartwatches, other people may feel differently.

Should we consider weight when choosing a smartwatch?

Yes, a smartwatch should feel comfortable in your hand. You could get every smartwatch feature on a smartphone. But, people use smartwatches because taking a smartphone out of their pocket and using it is not always convenient. So, if the weight of a smartwatch causes inconvenience then you should not buy them because there is probably a lighter alternative to the smartwatch you want.

Are expensive smartwatches always better?

In most cases, an expensive smartwatch will have more features than a cheaper smartwatch. If a smartwatch is expensive but there are cheaper and better smartwatches in the market, then the expensive smartwatch will probably be pushed out of the market.
