Realme Watch specifications and features

Last month, renders of the Realme Watch were leaked online. They appear to be in line with the images on the brand’s website. The upcoming smartwatch is confirmed to feature a 1.4-inch colour display with touch support. The device has a square dial with rounded corners and a thick bottom bezel. There is also a physical button on the side. The Realme Watch offers users a choice between Classic strap and Fashion straps.

The landing page reveals that the smartwatch will be available in three colour options i.e. Blue, Orange and Green.

As for health-related features, the Realme Watch will be equipped with a real-time heart rate monitor. It will also have a blood oxygen level monitor (SpO2). The wearable device will come with support for tracking 14 sports activities. The Realme Watch will display smart notifications for incoming calls, SMS, email, WhatsApp and social media apps. Users will also be able to control music playback and use the smartwatch as a remote shutter for their phone camera.

The page doesn’t reveal details on battery life, but as per previous reports, it will feature a 160mAh cell and come with IP68 water and dust resistance.
