In May 2020, Realme entered the smartwatch market by announcing the Realme Watch (review). It was priced at Rs 3,999. The Realme Watch 2 has now received certification from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authority in the US.
The FCC appearance has revealed the key specifications of the Realme Watch 2. It is known that its model number is RMW2008. The listing has an image of the prototype unit of the smartwatch through which its design has been revealed. With FCC certification in tow, it appears that it will not take too long for the Realme Watch 2 to go official.
Realme Watch 2 specifications and features
The Realme Watch 2’s image found in the FCC listing reveals that it has a square-shaped display and a power button on its right side. The user manual present in the FCC documents has revealed that it measures 257.6 x 35.7 x 12.2mm. Like the first-generation model, the Watch 2 has a 1.4-inch TFT color touchscreen that delivers 320 x 320 pixels resolution.
The Realme Watch 2 has support for Bluetooth 5.0 LE, which allows it to be paired with devices running Android 5.0 or above. The plastic-bodied smartwatch and its base is equipped with a charging contact piece, heart rate sensor, and a SpO2 sensor. The listing has revealed that it is an IP68 rated dustproof and water-resistant device.
Once paired with a smartphone, the Realme Watch 2 will support features like message alerts and music control. The smartwatch also offers other health-centric features like sleeping and multiple workout modes. The original Realme Watch (unboxing) came with a 160mAh battery, which allows it to support 9 days of battery life. It appears that the Realme Watch 2 will offer a loner battery as it is backed by a bigger 305mAh battery.
The leaked specs do not suggest that the Realme Watch 2 will be a major upgrade over its predecessor. Now that the FCC authority approved the device, it may break cover in the near future.
