      Last month, realme introduced its first smart bracelet, but immediately after that began to hint in every possible way about the imminent release of smartwatches. Representatives of the company even repeatedly showed them, promising to share all the details very soon. However, earlier developers of the XDA resource managed to do this, publishing information about the features of the gadget, as well as its images.

      The data came from the developer of the famous Android launcher Lawnchair. It provided an image of the watch itself and multiple screenshots of the user interface. As you can see, the gadget will get a square display with the brand logo. There will be one button on the side to turn the screen on and off, and on the inside, there will be a heart rate sensor and a charging connector. The accessory will be available in several colors: black, dark gray, white, yellow, and blue.
      According to available data, the watch will be equipped with five preset dials. It is assumed that users will also be able to download other options.

      The set of functions will be quite standard for such devices: stopwatch, alarm clock, weather forecast, physical activity tracking, phone search, and others.

      Directly from the watch, users will be able to control music playback on their smartphone and use it to remotely release the shutter in the camera app.

      The data collected about physical activity are displayed in the form of colorful graphs. The watch will be able to track 15 different types of exercise-such as running outdoors and indoors, swimming, aerobics, weight training, football, basketball, and table tennis. In addition, they can track the number of steps taken, heart rate, and other parameters.

      It is reported that the watch will have a very limited amount of built-in memory, so without connecting to a smartphone, they will only be able to store physical activity data for 7 days. Then the old information will begin to be deleted as new information becomes available.
      The date of the presentation of the realme smart watch is still unknown.
