Furthering its presence in the smartwatch game, Titan on Thursday launched the Juxt Pro smartwatch in India at Rs. 22,995. The smartwatch is available in Black and Silver case options, both of which ship with Black straps. The Titan Juxt Pro smartwatch will be available online via Flipkart, and offline at select Titan stores apart from certain electronic retail stores.
The Juxt Pro is the elder sibling of the Juxt that was launched at Rs. 15,995 in January in partnership with HP. Unlike many other smartwatches these days, the Juxt was primarily designed as a regular watch with just a touch of ‘smart’ness for the current generation. The Juxt Pro, however, is more akin to the likes of Samsung Gear S2 (Review) with a full, rounded touchscreen display.
The Juxt Pro is constructed with an all-metal body and has flat buttons on the side. It sports a 1.3-inch (360×360 pixels) IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 278ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Like the Juxt, the Pro version is water resistant up to 30 metres of water. The Juxt Pro is 49.5×50.2×15.2mm in dimensions, making it thicker than the Juxt. It features Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity.
The smartwatch can pair with Android (version 4.4 and above) and iOS (version 8 and above) devices through the Titan Juxt app and Bluetooth. The Juxt Pro comes preloaded with 20 watch faces to choose from, and also supports Bluetooth headphones.
The Juxt Pro is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Intel processor along with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of inbuilt storage. It sports a 450mAh battery.
The Titan Juxt Pro displays smartphone notifications like messages and email and allows you to answer calls as well. Other features include a built-in music app that lets you store music, a camera app that lets you take smartphone pictures from your watch, fitness, calendar, timer and sensors like accelerometer and gyroscope, among other things. For fitness, the smartwatch can track steps, distance walked, and calories burnt
The Juxt Pro is also big on safety, Titan claims. Installing the Titan Safety app on the paired Android or iOS device will help your emergency contact to track your location. Long-pressing the button on the watch will send your location and an emergency call to the registered emergency contact.
Other features include a weather forecast, a Find My Phone feature, and a converter for quick conversions across units.
