To remind, at the end of July Realme unveiled Watch 3. The wearable comes with a massive 1.8 inch display, much larger than the 1.4 inch screen of its predecessor. The other novelty is that the timepiece allows you to conduct conversations via your connected smartphone. This is actually the brand’s first smartwatch with support for Bluetooth calling.
In addition to the vanilla variant, the second generation has a Pro version. Realme has repeated this with the third generation.
Realme Watch 3 Pro will bring several upgrades
Watch 3 Pro comes with a 1.78-inch AMOLED display that is power efficient so allows for decent battery life. The resolution of the screen is a retina-grade 368 x 448 pixels. Which means it is a more high res than the screen on the basic version which comes in at only 240 x 286 pixels. What’s more, the screen on Pro offers up to 60 frames per second and 500 nits of brightness. This should make it readable both indoors and out. The screen-to-body ration comes in at 68.7%.
The overall look of the watch remains the same. So a square dial, metal body with a physical button on the side. This is paired with a silicone strap. The device measures 253.8 x 36.8 x 11.7 mm so is slightly thinner than the non-Pro variant. The weight comes in at around 40 grams.
Just like on the previous generation, another improvement of Pro is the inclusion of built-in GPS. Of course, the watch also gets the new Bluetooth voice calling capabilities.
Sensors on the device include an accelerometer, optical heart rate and SpO2. There is support for more than 110 sports modes, comprehensive heart monitoring and and Cywee sports and sleep monitoring algorithm.
With 10 days of battery life (345mAh), you won’t be reaching for the charger too often. Enable the multi-system GPS and this falls to a respectable 20 hours.
Available in Black and Gray variants, Realme Watch 3 Pro is available for sale in India for 4999 Rupees. This converts to around 65 US dollars at today’s exchange rate. We are yet to hear when availability to other countries will follow.
