This is the cheapest option in the lot considering it costs only Rs 999 and will give the number of calories and steps taken. While it’s not much in terms of health, it will at least help dad get a sense of how little or how much he walks. Also if this is his first wearable, it won’t overwhelm him with data, which is always good. Read our one month review

Samsung Gear Fit

If your father has a Samsung phone, this is a perfect companion device to get him. The Gear Fit is priced at Rs 15,900 (although you can get it for much less online).

Smartphones

We’ve divided them into three-categories: the budget, mid-budget and high-budget. If dad is still using his old Nokia feature phone, it’s high time that he moves on. There’s a wide variety you can choose from, and at any price point.
