Realme announced last year its plan to expand its product catalog and launch new devices in the technology lifestyle category.
Their first product was a pair of fully wireless headphones – Realme Buds Air – followed by the Realme Band fitness tracker. Today, Realme has unveiled three new products to promote its AIoT line of devices.
These new products include the new smartwatch called Realme Watch, an Android TV set called Realme TV, and a new pair of headphones called Realme Buds Neo.
Realme Watch is the company’s second wearable. The Realme Watch’s screen is larger, measuring 1.4 inches diagonally, and has a higher brightness of about 380 nits. It is a touch screen with a resolution of 320 × 320 pixels, which gives it a pixel density of 323 PPI.
The watch comes with 12 built-in dials and Realme will add several more options via OTA update soon.
The Realme Watch features a Goodix PPG optical heart rate sensor with automatic monitoring 24 hours a day. The sensor also supports SpO2 measurement for the oxygen saturation level.
The Realme Watch supports 14 built-in fitness tracking modes for running, walking, biking, strength training, aerobics, and free activity, and a host of sports like basketball, badminton, soccer, and more.
The Realme Watch also displays previews of notifications and can be used as a shutter button that controls the shutter of the phone’s camera. The watch also has a physical button on the side that acts as a Back button and can be held down for 3 seconds to turn the watch on or off.
To protect against water damage, Realme Watch is IP68 rated, which means you can wear it in the rain while showering, or while swimming in freshwater.
In addition to the standard Realme Watch buckle strap, the company will also launch a button strap in the future.
The Realme Watch with Black Buckle will be available for ₹ 3,999 (€ 48) starting June 5 via Flipkart and realme.com. Buttonhook straps may be purchased separately for ₹ 499 (€ 6) in the future.
The Realme TV TV comes with the Android TV Pie interface and will be available in two screen sizes: 32 ″ and 43 ″.
Both models are identical and only differ in terms of screen resolution – the 32 ″ comes with an HD + panel while the 43 ″ will come with a Full HD + panel. Both televisions are equipped with LED-backlit vertical alignment (VA) LCD panels.
Realme TV comes with Realme’s chroma boost engine for a profile of vivid, saturated colors. The TV also uses HDR10 and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) formats to enhance HDR content.
As for the audio, Realme TV has dual 24W speakers with separate tweeters. Realme says that TV speakers can play audio in the 148Hz-20kHz range, and it supports Dolby Audio. To complement the audio, Realme will also soon launch a 100W soundbar with a sub-woofer.
As for the software, use the Android TV launcher without any excessive modification. It is certified for content platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video and comes preloaded with these applications.
Realme TV comes with a smart remote control that connects to the TV via Bluetooth. It comes with shortcut keys for YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and a yellow ring around the main button that highlights the company’s signature color. The remote control also comes with an in-line microphone to interact with the Google Assistant.
Realme TV incorporates a quad-core MediaTek chipset with an ARM Cortex A53 1.1GHz CPU and a Mali-470 MP3 GPU. It comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The TV comes with three HDMI ports, one TV input, one AV input, 2 USB ports, one LAN port, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0.
32 ″ Realme TV is priced at ₹ 12,999 (€ 157) while the 43 ″ variants will come for ₹ 21,999 (€ 266).
Realme Buds Air Neo
As a successor to the Realme Buds Air, the company has released a more affordable set of headphones: the Realme Buds Air Neo.
They are identical to the previous generation but lack some features to reduce their price. The Buds Air Neo’s case lacks wireless charging and has a microUSB port instead of USB-C.
The new Buds Air Neo come with 13mm drivers and are available in two colors: punk green and rock red, in addition to normal white. Like the previous version, the Realme Buds Air Neo come with touch-sensitive areas on the outside of the headphones and these controls can be customized from the Realme Link app.
The Realme Buds Air Neo is priced at ₹ 2,999 (€ 36) and the white variant will be available on Flipkart and realme.com starting today, May 25. The other two color variants will be available for purchase later.
