I WANT TO BUY A SMARTWATCH AND MY BUDGET IS ` 25,000 ONLY. WHICH ONE SHOULD I BUY? I AM LOOKING FOR WELL-KNOWN BRANDS ONLY.
VANSH KHURANA, on e-mail
Samsung's recently launched Gear S2 is a very good smartwatch. It runs on Tizen OS and can sync with any Android smartphone or iPhone, too, with the Samsung Gear app. It pushes all the notifications of your smartphone to the watch. Another option worth considering is the Motorola Moto 360 2nd generation which runs on Android Wear, developed by Google, and also pushes notifications to the watch. However, the battery back-up of the Gear S2 is slightly better.
I WANT TO BUY A 40-INCH TV FOR MY HOUSE, BUT MY BUDGET IS LIMITED TO ` 25,000. WILL I HAVE TO SETTLE FOR A 32-INCH TV OR DO I HAVE ANY OPTIONS?

If you are not very particular about buying a Samsung, LG or a Sony TV, you can easily get a 40-inch LED TV from brands like VU Technologies and Micromax. The LED panels are pretty decent, but not as sharp and rich as the ones offered by Samsung or Sony. Before buying, do check out the exchange offers and schemes listed on e-commerce platforms such as Flipkart, as they may offer a better deal.
