After many rumors, leaks and information as an advance given by the realme itself, the new realme Band has just become official . We are facing the main rival of the Xiaomi Mi Band 4, which comes with a groundbreaking price and all the functions we expect in a sports bracelet.
The assault of realme to Europe and the market in general does not come only from the hand of its mobile line. The company has long confirmed its intention to create an ecosystem of wearables, in which the real Band is only the first step. The company wants to continue sowing its identity seal, with the clear objective of tearing Xiaomi a good piece of the cake.
Characteristics of the Realme Band
Now, Realme has officially made the Realme Band, its first activity bracelet, which comes at a very economical price and with the functions we are used to in another similar product such as the Mi Band 4, the Huawei Band or the Honor Band.
Screen and notifications
This werable has a size of 0.96 inches and a resolution of 80 x 160px. Its screen allows to display 64 letters on the screen. In addition, it has a touch button to go through several pages in case of receiving more extensive texts or information. This means that unlike the Mi Band 4, you do not have to slide your finger across the screen, which avoids problems with the keystrokes. Of course, the Realme Band can receive notifications of all kinds of apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Gmail and even TikTok.
Durable and without adapters
Realme has manufactured the bracelet in polyurethane plastic for greater strength and durability. In addition, it is water and dust resistant by IP68 certificate . Its design allows the user to disengage a part of the bracelet to expose a USB connector, with which to be able to charge the bracelet in a simple way, without the need for additional cables or adapters, which is another of the great differences regarding the Mi Band 4.
Up to 9 sports
The wristband can measure the heart rate in real time, in addition to having a sleep meter and step counter. There is also a lack of a sedentary warning and the memory of drinking water to stay hydrated. The Realme Band is compatible with nine sport modes, including swimming, walking, running, cycling, spinning, fitness or yoga . The bracelet has a special mode dedicated to cricket, a very popular sport in India where wearable has been presented. In addition, the user can select three sport modes as favorites, to be able to access quickly.
Battery and charge
All registered data will be saved in Realme Link, the special app dedicated to this wearable. The bracelet has a 90 mAh battery that can hold up to 10 days with heart rate tracking enabled, which is the function that consumes the most autonomy. The company says it can be fully recharged in 1 hour 47 minutes
Price and date of sale
Realme has confirmed that the realme Band is available in black, green and yellow colors. However, the 16mm straps are easily interchangeable , so a new market opens, as is the case with the Xiaomi bracelet. The realme goes on sale today in India and its price is 1,499 rupees, which in turn means about 18 euros. We still know nothing about its international launch or arrival in Europe.
