Realme seems to be targeting every realm of tech products and it recently introduced its next series of fitness watches in India. The Realme Watch 2 Pro boasts of some very fascinating features chief of them being larger display and built-in GPS at an a very moderate price range.
Display and Design
With the Watch 2 Pro, you get a larger-than-usual 1.75-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 385 pixels. Though it is a normal LCD display, colour reproduction is good, and given the decent pixel density, so is the sharpness; of course, it’s not at the level of an AMOLED panel. You get five levels of brightness to choose from. Level three is bright enough when indoors, but you need to crank it up to at least level four for it to be legible under bright sunlight.
To everyone’s surprise, and dare I say a pleasant one, the user interface is fairly uncomplicated and easy to use. One swipe to the down for notifications, up for the apps library, right for access to quick settings and left to see the widgets of your choice including the daily activity progress and other fitness parameters. With the notion of COVID still looming large, it also comes equipped with the Sp02 sensor which provides a very accurate reading. So all-in-all given the price range, it provides a great package of specs.
As far as battery life is concerned, Realme lasts a good two weeks with a single full charge. However, that is subject to not using the “Raise to Wake” feature and constant GPS exercising tracking. A reasonably intense day-to-day fitness use including music control. Checking notifications and monitoring heart rate would perish the charge within five days which is actually not bad in comparison to some other watches.
