Realme Watch 3 Pro review : The Watch 3 Pro is Realme’s new flagship smartwatch which offers a lot of premium tier features at just ₹4999.

Do all these features translate to a solid real-life experience?

Realme Watch 3 Pro Design

The Realme Watch 3 Pro is a rectangular smartwatch with 2.5D scratch-resistant glass at the front. The right side of the watch has a microphone as well as a navigation button that is fairly tactile to use. The speaker of the watch can be found on the left.

The frame of the Watch 3 Pro is constructed entirely out of plastic and it takes away from the overall quality feel of the watch. At ₹5,000 you do get watches with metal frames.

The silicon band of the Watch 3 Pro, on the other hand, is extremely comfortable. I wore it for extended periods of time, including while working out and sleeping, without any kind of discomfort.

The bezels around the screen are on the thicker side which is not an issue in this price bracket, but I do wish that the top and bottom bezels were symmetrical.

There is also an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance which always adds to the peace of mind.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Display

Talking of the display, the Watch 3 Pro has a rectangular 1.78-inch AMOLED touchscreen which is quite impressive. Being an AMOLED, it produces punchy colours and deep blacks.

The display’s peak brightness of 500 nits also ensures good sunlight legibility, but there is no ambient light sensor here and you’ll have to manually adjust the brightness every time which can get annoying occasionally.

There's also an always-on display which is always a welcome addition to a smartwatch, but it's not very visible in sunlight.

Realme Watch 3 Pro User Interface

Since it is an inexpensive smartwatch, it runs on Realme’s proprietary UI instead of Wear OS. Therefore, you cannot download additional apps here.

The single button on the right side of the watch helps with navigation. The UI is fairly simple to operate and quite smooth as well.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Companion App

The Watch connects to your phone via the Realme Link app which is available on both Android and iOS. The app is pretty straightforward to use and stores a long record of essentials like your daily workout summaries, sleep cycles, heart rate, blood oxygen, etc.

You can also load different sports modes and watch faces to the watch via the app.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Health & Fitness Tracking

The Watch 3 Pro comes with over 110 sports modes, however, only 16 of them can be loaded onto the watch at one time. Other modes are stored in the companion app.

I mostly used this watch to track my cardio and strength training sessions at the gym and it did give me a lot of information in relation to the same.

One of the highlight features of the Watch 3 Pro is its in-built GPS. So, if you are into cycling or like to go for a run outdoors, it can track your location quite accurately.

I also used the watch’s sleep tracking feature for a couple of nights. It does give you a detailed chart of your various sleep cycles. I often have a hard time getting into a deep sleep and the watch confirmed this ….so it's pretty accurate I guess.

What’s not so accurate is the steps counter because I’ve noticed it add around 50 steps to the overall count while the watch was lying on the side table.

Other health features like heart rate tracking, blood oxygen monitoring and menstrual cycle tracker are also available on this watch.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Bluetooth Calling

Another highlight feature of the Realme Watch 3 Pro is that it has a built-in mic and speaker which allows it to make and receive calls.

Now, this isn't something you'll use all the time, but it did come in handy when I was working out and had to tell a caller I'd call them later.

Also, while the speaker output is quite tinny, the mic’s audio performance is surprisingly good.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Battery Life

Realme claims that this Watch can last for up to 10 days on a single charge. However, you’d hit that number only if all the key features like always-on display, GPS tracking and Bluetooth calling are not used.

Ideally, expect around 4-6 days on a single charge which is not bad.

The Realme Watch 3 Pro uses a magnetic cradle for charging and it can be fully charged in around 2 hours.

Realme Watch 3 Pro Verdict

The Realme Watch 3 Pro is a really capable smartwatch for the price. It is very comfortable to wear and its display is of great quality as well. It comes with an in-built GPS and you can also take calls with it.

While I’m not a big fan of its plastic construction and I wish it had an ambient light sensor, it still makes for a solid option at ₹5000.
