The smartwatch also comes with notification alerts for calls, texts, alarms, hydration as well as third-party social media apps.
boAt Xtend packs a 300mAh battery to power through for up to a week on a single full charge.
A 5ATM water resistance allows the watch to survive a depth of up to 50 metres for 30 minutes, the company said.
