Ive been using Apple watch SE for almost 3 years now. 
My Colleague bought some Fireboltt watch recently and it has Fitness features which are available in Apple watch.

The thing is Im planning on changing my Watch soon and would like to know whether the Accuracy provided with the budget Smart watches (below 5K) are in par with those available at premium. (If only Fitness features are considered)

also suggest some smartwatch (below 5K) which is good for fitness tracking

Apple Watches since the last few generations are the gold standard. Outstanding accuracy in every parameter. Pixel Watch 2 is the best in the Android realm and comes really close in most scenarios. Fitbit Charge 6 is a (way) cheaper alternative but is slightly less accurate in health parameters (GPS accuracy is sub-standard) . Huawei watches/bands  are very good other than sleep monitoring where they are quite poor. Garmin watches are excellent in every aspect but HR monitoring is not on par with the above, a class behind in that aspect. Coros, Withings, Oura excel in some niche or the other. 

The data provided by the likes of Noise, Boat, Fire boltt etc. is garbage. Maybe other than HR monitoring at rest or step counting at best.Xiaomi and BBK devices are much  better than them  but that's not saying much. It's surprising how far they have fallen behind Huawei.

What accuracy you want? And which features

Obviously ypu cannot rely on medical stats like spo2/ heartbeat/ bp from any watch

Be it 10k or 1k one

Steps and all fitness activities are accurate. 

Enen pulse is accurate in my 4.5k noise watch. 

Don't know anything about spo2 and stress monitor.

Budget smart watches are budget smart watches.

Don't expect much from them.

50-50 is the correct term describing them in terms of features.
