Realme has started teasing the launch of new wearables, possibly the Realme Watch S and Realme Watch S Pro, slated to launch in India next month.
To recall, the Realme Watch S Pro was first unveiled at the company's event at IFA earlier this year. While it went on sale in select markets after the launch, the India launch teasers have just started to appear on Twitter.
The Twitter post shared yesterday by Realme India CEO, Madhav Sheth shows circular dials of two different sizes. The bigger watch with a rotating dial is the Realme Watch S Pro and the bottom one with a smaller dial is the Realme Watch S.

Sheth has tweeted another teaser with the hashtag #MeetTheProTrendsetters which clearly shows the new smartwatches showing 10 watches toting different watch straps and watch faces, which is a hint that it could launch a variety of strap designs. Going by the teasers and hashtags, the company seems to be promoting only the Pro variant, which could mean that it might only launch the Pro variant for now.
Realme has been aggressive with its pricing and the Realme Watch S series should follow the same route. The Realme Watch S retails at Euro 79.99 in the global markets which translate roughly to Rs. 7,140. Which means it should be priced around the same, if not less, in the Indian market.
The Realme Watch S Pro is expected to be priced slightly higher at around Rs. 10,000 in India.
As the name suggests, the Realme Watch S Pro is the better one among the two smartwatches. It comes clad in a metallic body with a 1.3-inch AMOLED display that on the front with an auto-brightness sensor.
It comes with a rotating outer dial, has built-in GPS which are missing from the S variant. It is also unclear if the watch runs on a proprietary operating system like the vanilla version, however, in case it comes with WearOS, it will compete against the likes of Mi Watch Revolve, which is currently one of the better options in this segment.
