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?

KAR­TIK GOEL, on e-mail

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.

The hand­set is ex­pected to be launched in the com­ing months.
