Realme just launched another entry level smartphone in India today. Along with the phone, they also teased and talked about a smartband which will be probably launch in upcoming few weeks. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has been spotted, wearing the Realme band on the launch.
Sheth also revealed that company will not carry a delay on launch of the smartband. He told it will come soon. The band he was wearing was yellow in color and has the traditional watch lock. It will be useful and also will be secure than casual fitness bands.
Realme’s primal target has been Xiaomi, more precisely to say, Redmi, the sub-brand of Xiaomi. They have launched each and every products to compete against the brand at lower price than Xiaomi and Redmi. These days, companies like Lenovo, Xiaomi, Honor have their own fitness band lineup which is also very affordable and feature rich. Even Samsung also launched their budget smartband named Galaxy Fit e available at ₹2,500 now. They are also competing among them. Now Realme has a motive to take a direct challenge with them.
Currently Xiaomi is holding the best wearable brand in India. But seems like it could be compromised at near future. Somewhat the first Realme band could feature an AMOLED display like other competitors like Mi Band 4, Honor band, Galaxy Fit e etc. Also, there will be general fitness sensors present in the band. The real time sleep monitor, swimming, cycling, pedometer could be also present. The heart rate monitor and calory burn sensor will be provided, according to a rumor which is also an obvious thing in a smart band.
The Realme Smart Band is also expected to make it’s arrival in the first quarter of 2020. But we are not sure about the launch date. The company also has not made the launch date or time clear yet. We can expect the price to be around ₹1,999 when it’s out. Again, it’s just the expectations. But CEO Madhav confirmed that Realme band will arrive in India soon, well later a few weeks. Well now, hope for the best.
