To share

Realme is once again updated in the field of smartphones with a simple but effective proposal. The Realme Watch3 doesn’t aspire to be more than it can handle and gives you a surprisingly wide range of functions with autonomy of almost a week. This is a smartwatch designed for Daily usebecause it functions as a control center with which to manage all your daily activityboth physical and social.

I tested the smartwatch for a few days and first impressions are very positive. It is a device that works perfectly as a personal smartwatch and it is also a luxury to accompany you in your sports sessions. It came out on the market for 69 euros and, frankly, he positioned himself in very good position in the ranking of the best connected watches value for money.

we have done parallel analysis UrbanTecno’s YouTube channel, and I’ll tell you in advance that Pedro and I came to very similar conclusions. If you want to see the watch in operation beyond the photos that I insert in the article, you can watch the video and get a rough idea of ​​how this new Realme Watch3 behaves.

Easy to navigate display and menus

In my opinion, I think this smartwatch has the perfect screen size. The 1.8 inch LCD panel It is ideal for being able to locate all the information at a glance. The dial style is up to you, and you have dozens of different models to be tested via the application real link. Personally, I don’t really like the sporty design that comes by default, since time occupies 90% of the information on the screen. Considering that the screen is quite generous, it is worth choosing a sphere where you can easily access information about your steps, calories burned or heart ratefor example.

The bezel design is narrow, making the most of space. I had no problem navigating the menus, and the interface is quite intuitive. You can activate it simply by raising your forearm, tapping the screen, or pressing the side button. From here you can navigate the menus sliding your finger from left to right, and each screen will show you data from one of the categories (health, sport, music), as is usual in most smartwatches. If you press the side button again, it will open an additional menu with which you can access the configuration and the complete breakdown of the sports modes.

Sport and health functions

If you like to play sports, you’re in luck, because the Realme Watch3 has a measurement system for (almost) all sports. There are over 100 sport modes availablebut the smartwatch is limited to a selection of ten. To select the sports modalities that you like the most the most effective is to do it from the Realme Link application. There you can select a kind of “favorites”, and when you synchronize the phone with the smartwatch, these will be the first ones you will see on the screen.

water resistance

The Realme Watch3 is IP68 certified for water resistance

The interface and measurement modes for most sports activities are very similar, but nothing else is needed. In most sports you will have a timer on the top accompanied by a breakdown of calories burned and heart rate tracking. There are activities (especially those that take place outdoors) in which the smartwatch will be synchronized with the GPS mobile to give you more accurate distance data, but it’s also not the most common. The activities that benefit the most from this feature are biking, running, and derivatives.

Notifications and call control

This section is where, in my opinion, the Realme Watch3 shines above the competition. this smart watch lets you make, receive and listen to calls thanks to its built-in speaker and microphone system. Once synchronized with the phone, you will be able to access the specific widget to make calls, where you have a numeric keypad and different options to change the volume and speaker gain. Don’t expect the best audio quality in the world, but from what I’ve tested, the watch is quite capable of transmitting voice more or less clearly. It is ideal for answering a quick call, an “I’m coming”, without going through the mobile.

receive calls

With the Realme Watch3 you will be able to make and receive calls with great ease, being able to listen and speak directly with the watch

In the area of ​​notifications I would have liked a little more customization. It is true that the smartwatch offers you a screen only for notifications, but as long as you have multiple apps synced… welcome to chaos. When I was testing this function, I ended up with a vertical scroll filled with small boxes where, in my case, messages from WhatsApp, Telegram and Microsoft Teams. Notably would have preferred messages to be grouped by sender and application, and once clicked the conversation will be displayed. The smartwatch shows you each message independently, and it can be confusing if multiple conversations are piling up.

Performance and comfort

Another aspect I’m happy with after using this watch is the battery performance. I use the device daily and using the sports tracking features whenever I could while walking around, setting alarms and trying to always check the notifications on the watch first. After a few days, the battery had barely dropped by 20%so Realme is not lying when it says the Watch3 supports more than one week of use at full capacity.


The Realme Watch3 has a design with a perfect screen size, which promotes comfort and usability

In terms of comfort, the truth is that I have nothing to complain about either. I find the screen to be just the right size so as not to be “too big”, and the feel on the wrist is as natural as possible. Obviously the silicone strap It doesn’t have a soft feel like leather might, but most of the time I didn’t even feel like I was wearing it. The relief on the back with the sensors for the health functions does not bother you, and you can adjust the strap with many different settings depending on the thickness of your wrist.

My conclusions: good, beautiful and not expensive

Overall, the Realme Watch3 struck me as a very interesting gadget and I think it’s a good choice taking into account the price-quality ratio. It doesn’t have the design or functionality of a high-end smartwatch, but he defends himself well on his fieldwith fairly comprehensive health and exercise features and the ability to make and receive calls.

This smartwatch is a very good option if you are not used to wearables of this style, or if you want upgrade from a smartband to something more powerful. Menu navigation is intuitive and the customization options offered by the Realme Link app are quite comprehensive. In summary, a very worthy smartwatch that for 69.99 euros it’s a safe bet
