The box is much simpler now than when the first watch was introduced.
Even the strap has become most user-friendly. You can unstrap it faster compared to the first and second-generation watches.
Size & Display
The realme Watch 3 has a 1.8″ Super Large & Bright Display that utilizes a TFT-LCD panel with frames per second set to 30FPS, allowing smooth scrolling through the display.
It is a little bit smaller than the last model, which makes it more comfortable to wear.
It comes with a silicone band, and the pins on the band make it easy to take off.
It’s a soft, easy-to-wear strap that didn’t irritate my skin in any way.
When you consider how compact and light the realme Watch 3 is, even when you’re going to bed, there’s no reason to remove it.
IP68 but not for swimming
Keep in mind that despite the realme Watch 3’s IP68 rating for water resistance, it is still not suitable for use during any sort of water-related activity.
How is the performance? You may ask.
The Realme Watch 3 has a silky smooth feel to it. We didn’t encounter any latency or sluggishness while exploring the settings or navigating through the other features. Taps and swipes are quite snappy, and the operating system is really simple to operate.
In terms of controls, the Realme Watch 3 is appropriate for novices. Slide up from the watch face to see your phone’s recent notifications, and swipe down to obtain quick shortcuts like seeing the battery percentage, adjusting brightness, and enabling/disabling raise-to-wake.
Notifications are on-point as well. The settle vibrations are enough to let know there are things you need to check from the phone you configured the watch.
Bluetooth calling is also useful. Not too outstanding, but if you’re driving and someone calls you, you’ll like this function much.
The realme Watch 3 has a 340 mAh battery, which allows it to have a 7-day standby time. As a result, the realme Watch 3 can keep going for a long time while still providing detailed information on the user’s health and activity levels.
All-Day Comprehensive Health Monitoring
The Realme Watch 3 is a good companion if you care about your health buff and you want data from your watch.
It keeps track of how you move with an optical heart rate sensor, a Sp02 monitor, and an accelerometer.
Moreover, it can keep track of how many steps you take each day, how many calories you burn, and how long you work out for.
You can also set inactivity alerts on the realme Watch 3 to make sure you get up and drink water every once in a while.
This wristwatch performs an outstanding job of tracking sleep. It keeps track of when you sleep and when you wake up. It also records how long you were awake, how deep your sleep was, how long you were in REM sleep, and how quickly your heart was pounding.
And for advanced users, the watch offers sports modes like jumping rope, mountain hike, taichi, and HIIT.
All these fitness and health monitor are a great feature that makes it easier for users to keep track of their health all day.
With all the features offered by realme Watch 3 and its retail price, I highly recommend this watch. Most especially when it is paired with a realme smartphone such as the realme 9 Pro Plus.
Joining the smartwatch community should not break your budget. The Realme Watch 3 is a great option to explore. It’s a good-value wristwatch that can handle everything well; the alerts are speedy, the daily activities and sleep tracking are accurate, and it’s comfortable to wear all day.
The retail price is only P3,499.
