More affordable does not necessarily mean low quality. This is what realme has continuously proved throughout the years of introducing budget-friendly tech devices that deliver almost the same (if not at par) features that consumers can see in devices that cost a fortune. They’re also opening March with yet another surprise for us in the Philippines: The launch of the realme Watch S Pro and realme Smart TV! However, we’re only going to spill the details about the former in this writeup.
Considering being below the Php 10k price point, realme Watch S Pro is highly capable of delivering accurate workout results and provide features that are essential in keeping track of our health and fitness records. It has the common features that we’re looking for – a blood oxygen monitor, 15 sports modes (including usual sports like basketball, swimming, and indoor/outdoor run), 24-hour heart rate monitor, music control, camera control, hydration reminder, and alarm, to name a few.
It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.5D – sturdy enough for day-to-day use, SUS316L stainless steel – a durable material with a premium finish, and a high-end liquid silicone strap that is skin-friendly. As someone with eczema who constantly worries about getting rashes from wearing things, I was able to use the the realme Watch S Pro for almost a week without any signs of redness or skin irritation. The best part? The strap is removable and can be changed to a leather strap or any strap of our preference (as long as it’s the same size); however, we’ll have to look for third party sellers for now as separate straps are not yet available locally.
Even if you’re using the black strap, it’s also easy to pair with your #OOTD as it comes it over 100 watch faces to choose from via realme Link App. You can find different designs and colors – from neutrals to bright hues, in the app. And if ever that’s not enough, the realme Watch S Pro is also capable of using any photo from your gallery as a watch face for a personalized touch.
SUITABLE FOR BUSY BEES
As someone who wants to be health-conscious but is too busy to monitor her progress, I also find the health monitors very useful. The realme Watch S Pro alerts me every few hours/minutes (depending on the setting) to drink water and stretch. It also has a 24-hour heart rate monitor which alerts the user whenever the blood pressure gets too high or too low. Plus, I was also able to manually check my heart rate and blood oxygen level at any time.
For fitness enthusiasts, especially those who jog or bike outdoors, the high-precision dual-satellite GPS is definitely something to love as it can accurately track your location on the map and provide a visual through the app during and after your routine. And if ever it rains while you’re outdoors, no need to worry as the realme Watch S Pro is 5ATM water resistant, enabling users to track their performance even while swimming of up to 50m.
On top of all that and features that I have listed below, the realme Watch S Pro can keep up with our daily routine for up to 14 days without charging! In case you need to charge, it only takes around 2 hours so that wouldn’t be an issue, too. It comes with a wireless magnetic charging base that you only need to plug in a USB port.
