We have been hearing about the Realme Watch S series for a couple of months now. To recall, the company had announced Realme Watch S Pro in IFA a couple of months back. Realme Watch S is already available in multiple regions including Europe, and Pakistan, but the Pro variant is yet to make its global debut. Yesterday, Realme India CEO, Madhav Sheth shared a teaser on Twitter showing us a glimpse of the upcoming Realme Watch S Pro. Today, he has shared another teaser and also said that the launch event is happening this month. In another teaser shared by him, a couple of smartwatches can be seen which hints towards Realme Watch S, and Realme Watch S Pro India launch.

Realme Watch S Pro, and Realme Watch S: Prices in India (Expected)

Realme Watch S is expected to be priced around Rs. 7,000 mark in India. While the Pro variant might cost around Rs. 10,000.

Realme Watch S: Specifications

Realme Watch S features a 1.3-inch LCD touch screen display with an auto-brightness sensor and 360×360 pixel resolution. It is the first Realme Watch to come with auto-brightness adjustment support. The Watch S also gets Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for scratch-resistance. There is also an IP68 rating on the Watch S that makes it water-resistant up to 1.5 meters.

The Realme Watch S packs an optical heart-rate sensor and blood oxygen level monitoring sensor (SpO2) similar to OG Realme Watch. It also offers 16 sports modes including Walk, Indoor run, Outdoor run, and more. The software on the Watch S is very much similar to the OG Realme Watch which is based on FreeRT-based proprietary OS. To those unaware, Realme Watch runs a forked version of the FreeRT OS. As a result, Watch S also lacks the functionality to reply to the notification similar to the Realme Watch. It packs a 390mAh battery under-the-hood which can deliver up to 15 days of battery life. It can charge from 0 to 100 in 2 hours with the proprietary magnetic charger.

Realme Watch S Pro: Specifications

Realme Watch S Pro had appeared on FCC last month revealing some key specifications. As per the FCC listing, it will pack a 1.39-inch touch screen AMOLED display with a resolution of 454×454 pixels. The Watch S Pro weigh s 63.5g with the strap and is fuelled by a 420mAh battery. It has a built-in GPS sensor along with an optical heart-rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic, and auto-brightness sensor.

As of now, the India launch date of the Watch S series is not revealed, but it should launch this month as hinted by Madhav Sheth. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Watch S and Watch S Pro, do let us know in the comments below.
