realme Watch 3 Review | All Around Fitness Smartwatch and More #realmeWatch3
realme recently launch the realme Watch 3 which is the successor of the realme Watch 2 released last year. The first thing I noticed is that the display size of the realme Watch 3 is a bit bigger than the Watch 2 which is a a 1.8″ Super Large & Bright Display that utilizes a TFT-LCD panel with frames per second set to 30FPS. Most of the specs and features are similar but has significant difference to name a few. I was fortunate to have a review unit to show you guys all the features of the new realme Watch 3.
The watch 3 looks very premium and solid and it doesn’t look and feel cheap. You can compare it with the higher end smartwatches. It also features a 7-Day Battery Life which is already long for a standard smartwatch. It also has IP68 Dust & Water Resistance where you can use your realme Watch 3 even if you are washing the dishes or hands, you don’t have to worry getting the watch soaking wet as it is tight sealed as shown in the pictures. The realme Watch 3 comes in two color options: Black and Grey which fit for both men and women.
One of the biggest improvement of the realme Watch 3 is the sports mode which feature more than 110+ activities which is more than the previous model. It is your ultimate partner in terms of health and fitness monitoring where it has an All-Day Comprehensive Health Monitoring. Perfect for fitness enthusiast and who is planning to have a better lifestyle by integrating the realme Watch 3 health features for that fitness goal.
Fitness/Sports mode includes Outdoor run, Cricket, Indoor Run, Strength Training, Football, Basketball, Badminton, Yoga, Elliptical, Indoor Cycle, Outdoor Cycle, Mountaineering, Trail Running and many more.
Connectivity and Social Network
What I like about the realme Watch 3 is the seamless connectivity across my social media accounts. First the SMS, where it can immediately notify the watch when there is an incoming SMS message and mobile call without much hassle and vibrates the smart watch even if your mobile is far from you, it is connected through Bluetooth, and in fact it has a Clear Bluetooth Calling feature, where it can handle consistent connection regardless of movement which is perfect of those who have an active lifestyle.
You can also connect your Social Media Network notifications and messaging like Facebook, Twitter, Viber and many more. This makes me more updated with my online activities even without looking at my phone, even if I am on the go or away from my phone, I can check the messages directly from the realme Watch 3.
You can monitor the weather using the realme Watch 3 which is amazing, in just a few swipe, I can see the weather conditions today & tomorrow.
Heart Beat / Sleep Tracking
I think this is very important to keep track of your health in real time even during medical checkups & emergencies can determine your conditions through your heartbeat which can save lives. This essential for those who have heart conditions or monitor your heartbeat during workouts & exercise.
The realme Watch 3 is an improvement of it’s predecessor, it delivers the same quality features that a health enthusiast would love and enjoy. With a bigger screen size, more training and exercise modes, it will make your smartwatch experience more interactive and fulfilling. I recommend the realme Watch 3 to existing or 1st time smartwatch users to try it out. realme Watch 3 is priced at PHP3,499
