Micromax and its online venture, YU Televentures are all set to reclaim the market share and take the Chinese rival Xiaomi by horns. In the launch event that took place in New Delhi, the Indian OEM unearthed the successor of Cyanogen 12 smartphone, Yu Yuphoria but being #wearable crazy and all, you know what took our fancy. The budget-priced fitness band, YuFit Band.

At the same price, you can buy Xiaomi Mi Band too (if you didn’t get the chance to book one on May 12, you can still be lucky on May 19. Click here or better, read on.)
