Realme Watch S goes on its first sale today in India. The latest smartwatch from the Oppo offshoot is a major upgrade over the last-generation Realme Watch, bringing features such as water resistance and 15-day battery life. Realme Watch S is the vanilla model in the series, so if you want the advanced version, wait for one day as the Realme Watch S Pro will be up for sale tomorrow, December 29. But if you are more likely planning to buy a smartwatch for around Rs 5,000 in the market, the Realme Watch comes across as a decent option.
Now, I have not reviewed the Realme Watch S yet, so I am not going to tell you if it is good or bad at this point. But the on-paper specifications and features of the Realme Watch S look interesting and attractive enough for its price. Realme Watch S not only has a good set of features but it also sports a trendy design, which is completely different from what you see on the Realme Watch that sells for Rs 3,999 right now. So let us just get the price and purchase offers out of our way before I talk about the features of the Realme Watch S.
