Realme Watch 3 review – GSMArena.com news – GSMArena.com

Introduction

Realme entered the smartwatch market over two years ago with its aptly named Realme Watch and since then the maker has consistently expanded its wearable portfolio. The new Realme Watch 3 is its latest offering and it’s positioned as a direct successor to last year’s Realme Watch 2 – a watch that brought great battery life and a decent set features for INR 4,125 ($55/€45).

This year’s model gets an overhauled design with a larger screen, squared-off edges and Bluetooth calling while still providing the usual sports and activity tracking for INR 3,500 ($44/€44). How does the Realme Watch 3 stack up against the competition and do the new features make it a worthy upgrade?

Design

Realme Watch 3 looks more premium than its predecessor though the body is still entirely plastic. The sides are now flat and feature a shiny finish that looks like a metal alloy from a distance. We have the black color variant for our review here which has an interesting gunmetal look.

Realme is also selling a grey variant that offers a lighter shade on the casing and a lighter-colored watch strap. Speaking of the watch strap it’s made from a durable silicone material and is of the standard 22mm variety so you can swap it for any other band you may have laying around.

The watch weighs just 40 grams, making it comfortable to carry all day. There’s a single button on the right side that can wake up the watch and also act as a back button. You also get a microphone on the same side while the speaker is located on the left.

The LCD panel on Watch 3 has grown to 1.8 inches up from the Realme Watch 2’s 1.4-inch diagonal though the resolution count has taken a hit at 240 x 286 px while last year’s watch had a sharper 320 x 320 px output. To be fair, the difference isn’t noticeable in day-to-day use but it’s still weird that the newer model watch has a lower resolution screen.

Unlike OLED screens on some competing smartwatches, there’s no Always on Display (AoD) functionality on the Watch 3 due to it being an LCD panel. The screen also lacks auto-brightness so you’ll need to manually select how bright you want to screen. There are four brightness options ranging from 20% and I found the 40% option as perfectly usable in most cases even while outdoors and in direct August sunlight. Peak brightness on the Watch 3 is 500 nits which is good enough though …….
