Realme has been quite aggressive with its product launches. Recently, the company added another affordable smartwatch to its lineup with the launch of the Realme Watch 3 Pro. The smartwatch sports an AMOLED display and it is the first smartwatch of the company to come with multi-system standalone GPS and Cywee's professional GPS positioning algorithm. The company claims that the wearable can record accurate body movements and lasts for more than 20 hours after continuous GPS use. The stylish-looking smartwatch comes loaded with features and will be liked by many. We used the Realme smartwatch for some time and here’s our complete review.

Design
Realme Watch 3 Pro has borrowed its design from the recently launched Realme Watch 3. The smartwatch sports a square dial found in most of the budget smartwatches available in the market. The wearable weighs 49.7 grams making it lighter and more comfortable to wear as compared to its competition. The device comes with a 22mm interchangeable silicone strap which is made of skin-friendly material and can be worn for long hours. The smartwatch comes with a metal finish design which makes it look premium and elegant. The right side of the device houses a physical button which allows you to wake up the watch, go back, open the menu and also to pause an ongoing workout. The smartwatch comes with Bluetooth calling functionality and you will notice a microphone placed above the physical button. The speaker grill is located on the left side. The rear of the smartwatch houses the heart rate and SpO2 monitor and the magnetic charging pin. The wearable also comes with an IP68 rating which makes it dust and water-resistant. In all the Realme Watch 3 Pro sports a stylish and simplistic design.

Display
Realme Watch 3 Pro features a 1.78-inch AMOLED curved display with 368x448 pixel resolution. The touchscreen display is protected with a coating of 2.5D scratch-resistant glass. The bright and vibrant screen of the smartwatch comes with Always-on functionality for a better user experience. The display on the wearable offers up to 500 nits of brightness and it offers good visibility under direct sunlight. You can manually adjust the brightness level of the smartwatch by swiping from right to left. You can access the quick settings by swiping from the top and you can swipe toward the right to see the activity data, heart rate and other data. The bright display on the smartwatch is better than many other affordable smartwatches available in the market.

Features and performance
Realme Watch 3 Pro is a feature packed affordable smartwatch. The wearable comes equipped with a heart rate sensor and SpO2 monitor. The smartwatch can also keep a track of sleep, steps, calories and distance walked. Along with this, the smartwatch can also keep a record of your daily activities. Same as the Realme Watch 3, the Watch 3 Pro also comes with Bluetooth calling functionality. The smartwatch also keeps a record of your call logs and it comes with a dial pad allowing users to directly make a call from it. We had a pretty good calling experience on the Realme Watch 3 Pro. The microphone performed well during outdoor calls and the speaker output was also loud enough. The company has also included AI ENC for calls in the wearable which cuts out a lot of background noise during calls.

You can use the Realme Watch 3 Pro with the Realme Link companion app. The smartwatch is compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems. All the health data recorded by the smartwatch can be viewed on the app. Along with this, you can also change the watch faces with the help of the app. You can also analyse your sleep data and can keep account of heart rate, calories burnt and more using the wearable. The smartwatch also gives you the option to sync it with Google Fit.

This means that you don't have to carry your smartphone when you're doing any outdoor activity. We tried the GPS support during our running session and it worked well. In all the Realme Watch 3 Pro delivers a smooth performance.

Battery
Realme Watch 3 Pro performs very well in the Battery department. The wearable is backed by a 345 mAh battery and promises to offer up to 10 days of battery backup on a single charge with GPS and Bluetooth calling. The battery life exceeded 13 days without Bluetooth calling. During our testing, the smartphone easily lasted for a week with minimal GPS usage and Bluetooth calling. However, there are chances that some users may get better battery backup depending on their usage. The smartwatch is also easy to charge. It comes with a magnetic charging dock which can be plugged into any USB port, laptop or power bank for charging. The smartwatch takes less than 2 hours to charge completely.

Verdict
Realme Watch 3 Pro comes with a price tag of 4,999 and it offers all the essential features that one would want in a smartwatch. Along with this, the smartwatch also comes with Bluetooth calling support and built-in GPS support. The smartwatch delivers a pretty good performance and a decent battery life. It also delivers a smooth touchscreen experience and good activity tracking. The smartwatch can be an ideal choice if you have a budget of Rs 5,000.
