The realme Watch 2 Pro appeals to those who like their wrist watches sleek and simple. Its neat and straightforward design brings a premium look that's further enhanced with its smooth watch edges and a sturdy-looking black strap with the "Dare to Leap" slogan.

The realme Watch 2 Pro display brings vivid and bright colors, making the screen visible even when used outdoors and under direct sunlight with its 1.75-inch digital watch face that can reach a brightness level of up to 600 nits. While it's not exactly a bezel-less smartwatch, the borders found on the realme Watch 2 Pro's screen aren't a nuisance. In our observation, they accentuate its curved edges even further, promoting a unibody look that's easy on the eyes. It also has fluid screen transition effects, and its display is impressively responsive. realme also planted a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass protection with anti-fingerprint coating on the realme Watch 2 Pro to ease users' worries about getting scratches and bumps on the screen from everyday use.

While the realme Watch 2 Pro comes with a large display to accommodate all the information, it should flash regularly to serve its purpose; it doesn't look big and awkward on the wrist. It also feels light and comfy as it weighs only 40 grams with the wrist strap attached.

Fitness enthusiasts would love the realme Watch 2 Pro. Apart from accurate tracking of blood oxygen, heart rate, and sleep rate, this smartwatch can also record up to 90 sports modes. These include an indoor and outdoor walk and run, cycling, bowling, fishing, cricket, skiing, basketball, strength training, cross-fit, boxing, hockey, horse riding, and many more. This is among the most vital selling points of the realme Watch 2 Pro, as other smartwatches in the market commonly track exercises that aren't as extensive as these.

One more thing that's very useful about the realme Watch 2 Pro is how easy and intuitive its interface is. Take, for example, its music control. Other smartwatches offer the complicated route where users should download either a third-party music app that will connect to their smartphones as a music source of Spotify or Deezer to enable music controls. The realme Watch 2 Pro has a built-in music app that allows users to perform controls like pause and play tracks, skip to the next song or the previous song, and adjust the music volume. Even changing the watch face design of the realme Watch 2 Pro is as easy as a couple of taps and swipes. This smartwatch also allows photos as custom wallpapers, on top of its more than 100 still-image and animated watch face designs. The realme 2 Pro also does an excellent job in prompting real-time notifications for text messages, calls, and social media and e-mail updates.

What makes the realme Watch 2 Pro a notch better than the previous realme smartwatches is its GPS. With the high-precision, dual-satellite GPS built-in on the realme Watch 2 Pro, even if the smartwatch isn't connected to a GPS-enabled smartphone, it can precisely record route information, step tracking, and activity monitoring on its own.

Since the realme Watch 2 Pro is designed for monitoring extreme sports, it should be made durable. realme said that this smartwatch underwent 168 hours of burn-in testing, 5,000 times charging port plug-in and out testing, 5,000 times watch straps replacement testing, and 200,000 times button testing. The realme Watch 2 Pro is also IP68-rated, meaning it can withstand dust, dirt, and sand and can be submerged in water up to a maximum depth of 1.5 meters for up to thirty minutes.

The realme Watch 2 Pro also works seamlessly with the realme Link app available for free download via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Signing up for an account on the realme Link app and pairing it with the realme Watch 2 Pro can be done quickly. Through seamless integration, the realme Watch 2 Pro and the realme Link app work together to bring users an intuitive dashboard to monitor the progress of the workouts or change watch settings.

The realme Watch 2 Pro's package comes with a free circular magnetic USB charger sans the power adapter. realme claims that this smartwatch can last up to 14 days on a single charge, close enough to what we got from our real-life test. We were able to use the realme Watch 2 Pro for 12 days before it required us to charge it again. The realme Watch 2 Pro takes around 2 hours for its battery to be fully refreshed to a hundred percent when it comes to charging.


If you're new to using a smartwatch as a daily companion for productivity, the realme Watch 2 Pro is a good choice. For only Php4,490, the realme Watch 2 Pro carries features and functions commonly found on smartwatches under higher price segments. This device is available in the official store of realme on Lazada and Shopee.
