Realme Band with Color Display, Heart Rate Monitoring Launched in India at Rs. 1,499
After talking up and teasing its fitness band for the past few months, Realm Band was officially unveiled today, alongside the Realme 6 series at an occasion in New Delhi. this is often the company’s first attempt at a fitness tracker but I might wish to see it so far another assault on Xiaomi’s dominance in India.
For a primary attempt, Realme Band possesses tons of sweet features, including a colored display, pulse, and sleep monitoring, 9 sport modes, notifications support, USB charging, and tons more. Let’s quickly run through all of Realme Band’s features:
Realme Band: Specs and Features
Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the Realme Band looks tons just like the Honor Band 5i with its curved design that matches the wrist perfectly. The band weighs only 20 grams and it should feel quite comfortable and snugly, because of the soft TPU material of the straps.
Moving on to the foremost important thing – the display. Realme Band features a 0.96-inch TFT LCD display as compared to Mi Band 3’s 0.78-inch OLED display. And well, it’s not slightly displayed. Instead, you’ve got a slightly capacitive button below the display to regulate the band. one tap cycles through all pages while long-press allows you to start exercises, hang up calls, and more.
There are five watch faces in tow immediately and you’ll apply them from the Realme Link app, which also acts as your fitness tracking hub. Realme says that more watch faces are going to be added via OTA updates within the future. The band supports notifications, alarms, drinking and sedentary reminders, among other things.
You will find a pulse sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope on board. the previous will help monitor your pulse in real-time (at 5-minute intervals) and track your sleep quality. The gyroscope, on the opposite hand, comes in handy for the “lift to wake screen” feature, which is additionally present on board. Realme Band also carries an IP68 rating, so you would like not to worry about taking the fitness band within the shower.
Now, as you’ll already know, Realme Band support nine sport modes, including the curious Cricket mode, yoga, running, walking, hiking, climbing, cycling, spinning, fitness (or gym). you’ll pin any three of your favorites on the Band and begin any activity during a jiffy.
Realme Band’s similarity with the respect Band 5i doesn’t end at the planning. Both of those bands provide you with the USB Direct Charge feature, wherein you’ll simply detach one among the straps and plug the band directly into a USB-A port on your computer or power bank.
You do not require a further charging cable or cradle to charge the Realme Band and that’s great. You won’t lose your charger like I always do with my Mi Band. As for battery life, Realme Band features a 90mAh battery pack as compared to Mi Band’s 110mAh battery. it’ll last you up to 9 days on one charge when you’re not using the real-time pulse monitoring feature. But, it drops right down to just 6 days on enabling the feature.
Price and Availability
Realme Band has been priced at Rs. 1,499 in India. It comes three attractive color strap options including black, yellow and green. we’ve been using the black variant, but the green one looks promising within the official renders. The fitness tracker will continue sales ranging from 9th March next week, but the Hate-to-Wait sale is about for 2:00 PM today.
At this price point, Realme Band undercuts almost every other popular fitness band out there – be it the low-end Mi Band 3i, Mi Band 4 or Honor Band 5i. We’re performing on our Realme Band review immediately, so stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for our verdict.
