Realme brings more and more AIoT products to the Philippine market such as wearables, gadgets, and even appliances. The latest wearables they’ve launched is the realme Watch S Pro–a smartwatch that focuses on monitoring your physical health and a great piece of tech to track your daily routine.
realme Watch S Pro is another realme watch in the S series line up and in this review, we will dive into the capability of this newest companion.
Design and Build
Starting with the design and build, realme Watch S Pro is a premium high-end smartwatch from realme. It boasts a 1.39-inch (454 x 454 pixels) touch screen protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The display is sharp, stunning, and colorful thanks to the AMOLED display with the Always-On-Display feature to display time information at any time which is perfect for saving battery. The watch’s display is bright with 5 steps brightness option and has a peak brightness of 450nits. The touch response is responsive as well.
The body is made of Stainless Steel it feels solid and well built. It weighs 63.5 grams and the body is quite chunky but sturdy. The quick-release strap is silicone and it is comfortable to wear. On the side of the watch are the two buttons for navigation. At the bottom is the PPG sensor for a precise heart rate sensor, a built-in SpO2 monitor to measure blood and oxygen, and the two magnetic contacts for wireless charging.
It comes with a charging dock in the box and you can easily remove the straps by unlocking the lock spring or the quick release that holds the strap to the watch’s body. We don’t experience difficulties removing the straps.
The realme Watch S Pro has Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-satellite GPS so pairing it on a smartphone will give you a lot of functions.
Upon opening the realme Watch S Pro it will welcome you with a customizable watch face–it can be digital or analog depending on your likings. If you download the realme link companion app there’s an option to choose up to 100+ watch faces with lots of fun and creative design. Realme did listen to our opinion. You can also put pictures straight from your gallery by syncing them to the watch, I really love this feature as it offers better customization.
It also has some widgets and quick settings and this will be shown by swiping sideways from the watch face interface.
Even if you don’t have someone that will remind you to eat on time, realme Watch S Pro can notify you via vibration features to either get up, drink water, or even wake you up with an alarm clock. It will also notify you that you received a notification from the apps on your phone but you cannot reply or input a voice command on the watch which is quite a bummer.
There are also some apps that will communicate to your phone for easy help, like the music player, camera, and find your phone feature. Watch S Pro can remotely control the music from your smartphone as well, and it supports a remote camera shutter. The phone finder feature will send a signal to the smartphone then the smartphone will start to play an alert sound.
If you just need to use the smartwatch itself, there are apps like breathing training, stopwatch, timer, compass, 24 hrs heart rate sensor, and SpO2 sensor. You can also see the weather and location thanks to the built-in GPS that can also track your walks or runs.
And speaking of, it has 15 types of sports mode with advanced high-precision dual-satellite GPS sensors to monitor your physical activities and progress

As said above it has swimming mode and the realme Watch S Pro is also IP68 water-resistant with 50 meters.
Realme packs tons of features in this wearable companion, it focuses on monitoring physical health and will give you data including sleep pattern, heart rate, and exercises right in the watch itself and in the realme link companion app.
As for the batteries it is backed by a 420mAh battery. Realme says it can last 14 days depending on the usage, we recorded 10 days straight without charging the smartwatch which is a pretty impressive battery life. As for charging, again it has wireless charging. You just have to put the watch’s body on top of the charging dock and it will be fully charged for just two hours.
Overall realme Watch S Pro is a feature-packed premium smartwatch. The basic tasks are here and you’ll get the most out of this wearable tech.
