RealMe is all into the wearable market, they have launched tons of products under the Dizo brand, and now they’re back with Realme TechLife.

Realme TechLife Watch R100 Review

Yes, the Realme TechLife Watch R100 is worth buying because it offers value at Rs 3999 price tag, the Bluetooth calling feature works fine, there are 100+ sports modes along with 100+ watch faces, and has all the necessary features that will help a lot in real life, all in all, its value for money smartwatch from RealMe.

Now, I have said many times that, when you buy a budget smartwatch or any other product, it will have its Pros and Cons and in the case of the Realme TechLife Watch R100, some Cons might change your Decision.

The watch has a speaker and microphone which will let you use that calling feature.

The thing is, the microphone quality is not that great, the other person on the call will have hard listening to your voice, so you have to speak louder and if you’re in a crowded place then you won’t able to hear the other person voice on the smartwatch, you will have to pull out your smartphone.

Take the calling feature as just a feature, it’s not that practical in the real world because the watch is priced at Rs 3999, so RealMe is compromising a little bit in the quality of the speaker and microphone.

Also, you will have to keep your smartphone near to the smartwatch because the watch doesn’t have an LTE option, it relies on smartphone Bluetooth.

That was it about the calling, we’ll discuss more later on.

Overall, I don’t recommend you to buy a budget smartwatch that has a calling feature because the most watch doesn’t have a good quality microphone and speaker, so instant of that, go for a regular watch and you will get a better display and even more accurate fitness data.

Display Quality

The Realme TechLife Watch R100 comes with 1.32-inches TFT rounded display with a resolution of 360 x 360 Pixels and 450 nits that pick the brightness.

The watch is available at Rs 3999, so RealMe should have provided the LCD panel. The TFT display is also good but sometime when you see the display under the sunlight, you will notice the difference if you have used LCD or AMOLED panels.

For normal users who are using a smartwatch for the first time, it won’t be a huge problem.

RealMe has also added more than 100+ watch faces which can be accessible from the RealMe Wear app and you can also set custom images from the app too.

The display quality is good and that 450 nits brightness helps a lot in real life.

Design, Comfort, and Build

This is where things get a little bit tricky…

From the outside, the watch looks premium, you’ll get the feeling of a flagship until you hold the watch in your hand. The rounded ring is made out of aluminum and other parts of the watch are made out of plastic which doesn’t give a good vibe.

I feel RealMe should have used good quality plastic because when you hold the watch, it feels a bit cheap.

Now, talking about comfort,

The strap is also good, your skin won’t hurt and even after wearing the watch for a few days, you don’t feel that you were wearing a watch. The strap is removable, so if you want you can replace the strap as per your liking.

As I have said, the Realme TechLife Watch R100 is only available in Black and Grey colors.

Overall, the watch is comfortable to wear but the quality of the plastic could have been better.

RealMe Wear Application

As of now, RealMe has different applications, the RealMe Link app, the RealMe Fit app, the RealMe Ear App, and the Dizo App, here, let’s talk about the RealMe Wear Application.

Talking about the app, it has all the features that a smartwatch should have. You will be able to see, the battery percentage, steps, calories, sleep tracking, and heart rate graph.

Also, if you run a lot then you can also use your smartphone GPS which is added to the RealMe Fit app.

The RealMe Wear app is well-organized and you won’t face any kind of problem while using it. By the way, the RealMe Wear App is available on Android and iOS.

Speaker and Microphone

I have already said lots of things about the microphone and speaker but still, let’s talk a bit because this is the main feature that RealMe is marketing.

Don’t buy the Realme TechLife Watch R100 because of the calling feature, you will be disappointed. The microphone works in the best way, and the speaker is also good but it doesn’t work the best in crowded places.

See it this way, the watch has a calling feature that you can only use at home or where there is low noise, don’t expect to use it in a public place.

The thing is, the microphone quality is not that great, the other person on the call will have hard listening to your voice, so you have to speak louder and if you’re in a crowded place then you won’t able to hear the other person voice on the smartwatch, you will have to pull out your smartphone.

Take the calling feature as just a feature, it’s not that practical in the real world because the watch is priced at Rs 3999, so RealMe is compromising a little bit in the quality of the speaker and microphone.

Also, you will have to keep your smartphone near to the smartwatch because the watch doesn’t have an LTE option, it relies on smartphone Bluetooth.

Accuracy

As this is Smart-Watch,

It comes with all the sensors like 3-Axis Accelerometer, Optical Heart Rate Sensor, SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation Level), and Wearing Monitoring.

RealMe has also added all the necessary features like 5ATM waterproof, 150 watch faces, 110 built-in sports Modes, Female cycle, Drinking Reminder, Activity Tracker, Heart Rate Monitor, SpO2, and Stress Monitoring too.

To control everything, we have the RealMe Wear app which is available both on iOS as well as on Android.

Now, RealMe has added 100+ Sports modes which means, that whether you want to count footsteps, calculate calories, or even use it while swimming, the watch will provide accurate fitness data.

The SpO2 sensor also works the best, it doesn’t feel gimmicky and the same can be said for the heart rate monitoring too.

The SPO2 CLIP machine gives accurate data but at the same time, the watch showed an error margin of around 5% which isn’t very bad as the RealMe TechLife Watch R100 is only priced at Rs 3999.

This means, that if you want to use Realme TechLife Watch R100 for GYM or any kind of activity then you can use it but keep that 5% error margin.

Now, I have said this on RealMe Techlife Smartwatch SZ100 Review and I will say it again…

One thing to note, if you keep RealMe Techlife Smartwatch R100 beside any cloth then still, it provides heart rate data. Now, this doesn’t happen every single time, this feels like, it can be fixed with software.

Battery Life

The battery life won’t be as good as any other budget smartwatch because it has a calling feature and it will consume more battery.

RealMe has also promised 7-days of battery life but that won’t happen in Real Life.

If you use all the features from SpO2, heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking then expect the battery life to be around 4 to 6 days battery life.

Now, if you don’t use all the features then you will get battery life to be around 6 to 7 days.

Of course, battery life will depend on every user and how they use the smartwatch. So take these numbers to get an idea about the battery.

Verdict

Realme TechLife Watch R100 Image11

I feel companies want to provide a calling feature on smartwatches then they should go with a good quality microphone and speaker, it doesn’t make any sense if you can’t talk to someone directly from the watch in a public place.

Overall, take the calling feature as an add-on, don’t buy the watch, just because it has a calling feature.
