Chinese smartphone maker Realme has slowly been entering the wearable space in India, first with the Realme Buds Air TWS earphones and then with Realme Band fitness tracker. Now the company is on the precipice of releasing a new smartwatch called the Realme Watch. While details regarding the device are scarce, an exclusive report from XDA-Developers has shed some more light on what we can expect from the smartwatch.
The renders of the Realme Watch, seen in the report, give us an idea of what the smartwatch will look like. For starters, it would appear that the Realme Watch looks quite like the Apple Watch in terms of shape. The main body of the watch is rectangular, however, the display appears to be surrounded by very thick bezels. The Realme branding is also present on the bottom of the screen. From the back of the device, we can faintly make out charging pins. There is a single button on the right side of the watch which should be used to lock and unlock the device and also perhaps for navigation within the watch.
As far as specs of the device are concerned, the Realme Watch will reportedly have a 1.4-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with a 320×320 resolution. Inside the watch is a 160mAh cell which is said to power the device for about 7 days which includes 24-hour heart rate monitoring. The watch happens to be IP68 certified for water and dust resistance. In terms of software, the Realme Watch will be running on a proprietary OS and not on Google’s WearOS.
The Realme Watch is said to come pre-loaded with five watch faces but the report states that the user should be able to download more watch faces. Apart from this, you will be able to do standard smartwatch functions on the device such as control music playing on your phone, fitness tracking with the 15 different types of exercises programmed in, track your sleep cycle, and more. The report also mentions that the watch has both Hindi and English options for usability, which would be a big selling point in a market such as India.
