Realme’s first “premium and high-end” smartwatch has launched in India.
The Realme S Watch Pro, which has been teased on Twitter over the past couple of weeks, will cost ?9,999 ($135). The Watch S retails for around £90, and we’d expect the Watch S Pro to cost around £140 when it hits international markets.
It’s a follow up to the budget Realme Watch S, which went on sale last month. The Realme Watch S Pro adds a stainless steel case and a larger, 1.39-inch, AMOLED display to the mix.
That display boasts a 454 x 454 resolution, which equates to an impressive 326ppi count. Brightness is touted as 450nits.
Battery life is 14 days from just a 2 hour charge, and that the Watch S Pro is rated at 5ATM, so you will be able to take it swimming.
Talking of swimming and that’s one of the 15 sports modes on offer from the Pro. There’s also the likes of running, cycling, cricket, spinning, rowing, yoga and weight training.
And the Watch S Pro also boasts dedicated GPS and an optical heart rate sensor, which can continuously measure heart rate, show you your resting heart rate and measure effort levels during workouts.
That sensor can also be used to take blood oxygen measurements for another glimpse into your fitness levels.
The Realme Watch S Pro was actually first teased at its IFA 2020 presentation in September, where it stated a 2020 launch would happen.
However, with the standard Watch S being announced in November, it was assumed that the Pro might have to wait for 2021. But that’s clearly now not the case.
The original Realme Watch S switched from the square look on the original Realme Watch to a circular case design that’s made from an aluminium alloy.
