Maxima Max Pro X6 Review: Are Smartwatches Under Rs. 5,000 Worth It? – Gadgets 360
Smartwatches and fitness wearables are quite popular, especially amongst the youth of today. They are widely used, both for fitness as well as fashion purposes. There are ample choices in each price category in the Indian market, but off late, we’ve seen a lot of action in the sub-Rs. 5,000 segment. Usually, wearables in this price segment are just fitness trackers or notifiers and not full-fledged smartwatches.
Today, I have with me the Max Pro X6 from Indian watchmaker Maxima, which promises to be more than just a notifier. It packs in features such as SpO2 tracking, IP rating but most importantly, can also be used for answering phone calls, a feature that most watches in this segment lack. Is it better compared to proven feature watches such as the Redmi Watch or the Realme Watch 2 Pro? Let’s find out.
Maxima Max Pro X6 price in India
The Maxima Max Pro X6 can be bought online via the company’s own website or from online retailers for Rs. 3,999. It is available in a single 43mm case size. The smartwatch i`s available in four colours: Black, Black and Gold, Peach and Gold, and Silver.
Maxima Max Pro X6 design
The Maxima Max Pro X6’s design is heavily inspired by the Apple Watch as it features a rectangular casing and a crown on the right side. The watch has a metallic casing with a glossy finish to it which gives it a premium look and feel. It has a 1.7-inch display with a claimed 400nits of brightness. You can press the crown to go to the home screen and even rotate it, although there’s no function attached to the rotating action as it is just for show.
Pressing the crown also lets you wake or turn off the screen, exit to the home page, stop activities, and a long press allows you to power down the device. It has a heart-rate sensor and a SpO2 sensor on the back along with two magnetic contact pins for charging. You’ll also find the speaker and the microphone here, which is an awkward place to put it in my opinion, since your wrist tends to cover them when you’re wearing it.
The Maxima Max Pro 6 features good quality rubber straps that are easy to detach and also replace. If you are not a fan of the black straps, you can swap them for any other 20mm watch straps. The watch is quite light and weighs just 44g. The Max Pro X6 is IP67 rated which means it should not be an issue while swimming or taking a shower. It is compatible with Android devices running on Android 5.0 and above and iOS devices running on iOS 9.0 and above. In the box, you get manuals, a warranty card and a charger that comes with a USB-A connector on one end and a proprietary magnetic charging pin on the other.
