. So this is going to be a quick review of this device here that i’ve been using for almost one week now and there’s a couple of stuff that you must really know before you buy this device right here, all right. So before we start, i just want to say that the real me watch 2 was just launched here in malaysia for rm229, so it is coming in at a pretty affordable price tag right there and in the box. Basically, you do get the watch itself and the charger which is right here so i’ll show you that more in a little bit uh the key items that real me is focusing right here is actually the 1.4 inch lcd display a 12 day battery life 90 sport Modes there’s quite a bit there. You also have live watch phases, uh your spo2 and, of course, a smart iot control all right. So those are the stuff that real me is putting on the box itself, but let’s check out the device itself. So back to that charger we do have a round shaped park like here uh. It does feel pretty good and the way it sticks onto the watch is just fairly simple. So although the watch is in a square face right here, your puck or your battery charger is actually a round shape very, very firm right there. So i like that so i’m, going to put that aside right now and we’re going to check out the design of this real me watch too.
So, first up again we have the dare to leap, a huge writing on the straps here, but the good news here is that the strap is actually in like fully black. So you can’t really see these words here. So i i don’t know if you like this kind of thing or if you don’t like it. Let me know down in the comment section below. Otherwise the straps are actually fairly comfortable. It is a 22 meter strap, so you can just remove it using these little latches at the back here. So if you don’t, like the dare to leave stuff, just swap out the straps for other straps, very simple, all right, so let’s take a look at that display right here. We do have a 1.4 inch lcd display, and you can. I purposely chose this wallpaper right here, so you can actually see how big the bezels are. Just so you can manage your expectations. This is a pretty not the brightest display that you can get out there, because it is just lcd, and this is the kind of size that you can check with the real me watch too. So, of course, if you want to get a better looking wallpaper such as this one, for example, we have the black wallpaper right here, so you can’t really see the bezels on the watch right here and, to be honest, it just looks much more better with this Kind of watch face right here, all right, so on that note, this is like i said, an lcd display, so you do not have always on display right here.
Apart from that, when the watch is sleeping, you can’t actually tap to wake it up. The only way you can wake it is when you raise your wrist or if you press the physical button on the right. So you only have one tiny button here. Everything is made out of plastics, as you can expect from an affordable, smart watch right here, but it does feel pretty good to hold and to feel and all that, so it feels okay. It doesn’t feel like a cheap device at all, so nice smartwatch build quality here coming from real me all right, so we’re going to talk a little bit more about the features in this watch right here. So the ui is actually pretty simple. If you drag down from the top, this is where you get into your notifications, and i love that we do have your app label uh in a huge caps lock right here, so you can see it very clearly. If you just tap into that, you can see more information with your notification and i really like the notification here, because you can see a lot of text on this watch display right here. So going back, let’s just go back right now. If you swipe towards the left here is where you get a couple of quick settings, so you have your do not disturb mode. You have your brightness. This is a very quick setting that you can just use to adjust your brightness right there.
Apart from that, you have your battery saver mode, uh your i’m, not really sure about this wrist, but right here and also you have your settings shortcut right here, so you can get into the settings right away all right! So if you just swipe towards the right, this is where you get your widgets. So first up you have your activity widget, where it just gives you an overview of your steps that you’ve taken throughout the day and so forth. Note that these widgets are just passive. They do not do anything when you tap them and you have to go into the app itself to see more information. So if you just continue swiping, this is where you get your heart rate monitor going on. You also have your weather. Here again, you can’t go into the app itself, but you can have a quick glance of the weather right here and the last one right. There is actually your music controls so bear in mind. This watch do not have the capability of storing music. This is just your music controls, all right, so i’m, just going to go back right here and show you guys more stuff if you swipe up from the bottom, this is where you get into app menu and you have your activity right here. Your heart rate, i didn’t notice that the heart rate was actually quite accurate compared to my blood pressure, monitor right there, so the heart rate wise, is pretty alright in terms of spo2 again, this is very standard stuff here you have that on this real me watch, But i must note that the spo2 readings isn’t that accurate for my unit right here i’m, seeing like 70 spo2 readings or even 80, which is very, very low uh.
But i have my other watches with me and i’ve just tested about five or six different watches. All of them showed up with more than 95, so i think there might be an issue with my particular unit here with the spo2 readings anyway. Do not think of this as a medical device, but just for reference all right. Okay, let’s go down the list. We do have your sleep records right here. If you have your sleep here, you will actually be able to see uh the amount of time that you were in bed. You can see the time that you were awake, so i like the fact that we can see our sleep information directly from the watch itself, so that’s good there again. I must highlight that the the readings here are not the most accurate, for instance, when i was in bed last night. At one point i did woke up in the middle of the night, but it was not detected by the watch. So just bear in mind again. These are just references for you to uh, take note of all right. So moving back to the list here, we also have our workout modes. Currently, we have 10 in the watch itself right now, so real me is saying that there will be 90 different sport modes and that might come in a future update. But for now this is the kind of activities you have very standard stuff running your walking your cycling, basic training, stuff yoga and more so bear in mind that this watch does not come with gps built in.
So if you need to take a watch out for runs or something like that, you will need to carry your phone with you to get that gps reading. So yeah just bear that in mind so that’s about the sport modes. There, if you, if you did a workout, obviously you will see that in your workout records you have your alarms, your weather, so in this weather app right here you can scroll down, and here you can see more of the entire week, uh kind of like weather Report right there, so you can see more information in the app like. I said this now. If you go down the list, we also have our stopwatch uh, you have your timer and your music control. You also have your camera remote. Yes, so if you’re going to take photos like you can always just use this button right here to take use it as like a camera remote, you also have your brief brief exercises right here and you’ll find your phone and that’s pretty much it what’s really what’s Kind of missing here is your stress tracking, so that’s not available on the realme watch too, but you do get all the other items that i just showed you earlier on all right. So one thing i need to praise real me here is that the refresh rate on the display seems to be pretty good uh. Take note of this scrolling speeds guys it is very smooth here and to be honest, it’s even better than some of the amaze fit smart watches that are more expensive than this little guy right here, so i’m very impressed with the kind of smoothness that we’re getting With the ui right here, everything is just fluid, smooth it’s, just like a 60hz uh refresh rate on your cell phone or your smartphone for that matter.
Apart from that, it does come with a vibration motor which you can choose to go like stronger or lighter, depending on your preference, so that’s what you can do in the settings. So on that note, let me just show you what we do have in settings right here, so for your watch phases, you can naturally get more watch faces from the real me link app itself for your display. This is where you have your race to wake. Your screen timeout times one thing about that race to wake, though, is sometimes it doesn’t really detect my movements on my wrist, so hopefully that will also be fixed in a software update, uh moving down. You also have your fitness notifications. So what this means is uh. You can turn on the kind of fitness, uh, notifications or reminders if you want from the settings itself so there’s quite a few stuff here, actually that you might want to check out uh. Apart from that, you do not disturb your battery yep. You can actually see your last time since you fully charge it and yeah that’s pretty much what’s in the watch itself. Uh, apart from that, one more thing that i need to point out is that the heart rate monitoring here is only being done at five minutes intervals. So, unlike other fitness trackers, where it’s like minimum one minute or something uh, the lowest, you can go with the real me watch. Two is actually five minutes all right so back to the watch for rm229.
Is this something that you should buy or you should consider or you should just skip? In my opinion, this is something that you should actually consider. This is a actually a pretty good device right here coming in at that price. I do notice the few software bugs that i did mention earlier on with the real me watch too, and i really hope that will be fixed in a software update because that can be fixed, but otherwise it is a very solid device right here coming in at That price of this rm229 all right guys, let me know what you think about this realme watch too, is this something that you are considering or you know you want to buy.
