Realme Watch Review
Realme Watch 2 review is on its way and I am not surprised as it is very much like the original version. The new version boasts of some of the same characteristics of the original including the ability to set alarms. It also can track your heartbeat rate, distance covered, calories burned and can even provide information on the amount of activities you have performed during the day. If that is not enough, then you must consider the Realme Watch 2 Features.
Realme Watch 2 Pro includes a square smartwatch design with a polyurethane shell. The watch comes with a solid chunky stainless steel body and offers a stylish rectangular shape. The watch simply looks great and gives off a sense of power and authority when you wear it. The built in heart rate monitor features a backlight as well as a tracker, which enable you to know your heart rate throughout the day. The smartwatch also offers an IP68 standard for water and scratch resistance, while it weighs in at a mere 150g.
I recently purchased a Realme Watch 2 and have been really happy with it. As I mentioned in my Realme Watch review, I was quite pleased with the functionality of the first watch but found myself wanting more out of it. I am a runner and always carry a GPS enabled mobile phone so wanted a strap that could track my location with ease.
So, I looked at a couple of the Realme watches and decided to purchase Realme Watch 2 with the intention of buying another one once I had used it for a couple of weeks. The first watch I bought had a hard time getting the battery life especially when using it whilst exercising. However, after some research on the internet I discovered that users were reporting battery life issues with the original Realme smartwatch and that it was a common problem amongst the Titanium range of smartwatches. After searching the Realme website on google I noticed that they had reduced the battery life by roughly a third and this helped considerably. This reduced the pressure on the battery and made it last longer during workouts.
The second watch I purchased had similar issues with the initial model, but it also featured a heart-rate monitor, a stopwatch and also a calendar. It also had two modes, sport and entertainment and although it didn’t feature the step counting modes that the first watch featured, it performed exceptionally well and did not disappoint in any way. As I mentioned above, it was quite difficult to get a good charge from it but after a few days of testing it on its own, I noticed that it was now charging fine. I tested it for a whole week and only needed to plug it into a USB port to get it going. Once it was fully charged, I transferred my test data over to my PC and was able to see that the steps were being recorded in the Realme Workout.
If you’re interested in some of the other features of the Realme Watch 2, apart from being able to view your workout data and track your performance, it also has a nice interactive program which allows you to link the Realme Watch 2 directly to iWorkOut and Microsoft Office. This is great as it means that you can automatically load up your workbook or presentation just as if you were viewing them in the real world. The interactive program also lets you connect with the Realme website and the Realme app through wi-fi. This has been great as I have been travelling a lot recently and having access to these apps whenever I feel that I need them has meant that I can concentrate more on my trip rather than trying to synchronise my phone to my computer. The Realme Watch 2 also features a Link app which gives you access to a number of interesting sites, all of which are supported by Bing.
One of the things I really like about the Realme Watch 2 is that you don’t need to worry too much about a low battery being the end of the device. It features a lithium ion battery, which offers between four and seven hours of battery life depending on how you use the watch and its mode. I have found this to be a definite plus point for the Realme Watch 2 over the other options I have tested. Most of the other watches I have tested over the last few years have featured a NiCad base and these tend to run for a shorter time on a full charge. The Realme Watch 2 doesn’t suffer from any such issues and in fact works for several days without having to resort to a charger.
The Realme Watch 2 also offers users the option of using its GPS navigation system in conjunction with its heart-rate monitor, and in many ways this is the better feature of the two. The GPS navigation system can help you find your way round whatever your fitness level and although it does occasionally need to recalibrate itself, you’ll find this easier to do than on the original Realme watch. The heart rate monitor on the other hand offers more than just the average heart rate and can measure your speed, calories burned, and other factors. The best thing is that these are all customizable by the customer so you can create your own target and targets for different workout sessions.
