We recently covered an article about the launch of Realme Watch S in Nepal. As I stated in that article, Realme Watch S was launched in Nepal before India. But now, India has finally launched it along with the debut of Realme’s first premium smartwatch in India i.e. Realme Watch S Pro. Let us find out about its specs, pricing, and availability.
Realme Watch S Pro Overview
Display and Design
As I implied in the introduction, this can be called Realme’s first premium smartwatch due to its stainless steel case. The circular dial is identical to its non-pro model. What’s different is the 1.39″ always-on AMOLED display of 454×454 resolution with 5 auto-brightness levels. It has a peak brightness of 450nits and a contrast ratio of 100000:1. The watch weighs 63.5 grams with straps which come in two variants: silicone and vegan leather. The strap color options include Green, Brown, Blue, and Black is the default silicone strap bundled with the watch. The watch is IP68 rated making it okay for swimming as well.
The watch uses Bluetooth v5.0 to pair with an Android smartphone via the Realme link app. It is recommended to use the app to see more data and make better use of all features present on the watch. Sadly, there is no iOS support yet but it should be coming soon for iOS 9.0 or higher.
It has all the sensors and features that is available on its Vanilla model. Heart rate sensor and SpO2 are present along with 15 sports mode and a new swimming mode that is missing on the Realme Watch S. There is dual-satellite GPS as well which both the cheaper Realme watches lack.
Other handy features include Sleep tracking, Steps counter, Idle Alerts, and Drink Reminder, Smart Notifications, Incoming Call Alerts, and Camera and Music Control.
There are 100+ watch faces to choose from. If you don’t prefer them that much, you can use any picture from your smartphone which is a great option.
The watch has a battery capacity of 420mAh which is only slightly higher than 390mAh of Realme Watch S. The company is claiming a battery endurance of around two weeks but I am sure using that in-built GPS will eat out the battery quicker. We need to test it out to give you the exact numbers. The charging is done via magnet on the back case.

Most of the features that you do on the smartwatch is already available in its vanilla model that has already been launched in Nepal. You can wait for the Pro version if you want a sturdier build, better display, swimming mode, in-built GPS, and leather straps. I don’t think it is worth that extra money but we will have to wait and see the pricing if it launches in Nepal.
