Realme recently released a new companion app for both iOS and Android users called the Realme Fit app. Although the Chinese giant has the Realme Link app for managing wearable devices like the Realme Watch, the company mentions that the new app is for a smartwatch model under its TechLife ecosystem, which could come with body testing and ECG features.
According to a recent report by Fonearena, the Realme Fit app is currently listed on the Google Play Store, and the description says that it is “a companion app for the smart bracelet TechLife Watch S100.” Now, although Realme has launched the Dizo Watch under its TechLife brand, the company has not launched any smartwatch with the said moniker.
Furthermore, digging into the Realme Fit APK revealed an interesting image titled “body testing”, which showcases a user placing two of their fingers on a fitness-band-like wearable. Furthermore, another image within the app shows images of ECG testing.
Although details are vague at the moment, the new images hint at a new feature that could allow users to measure their body composition or perform an ECG test using the upcoming TechLife Watch.
Now, measuring body vitals or performing ECG tests using a smartwatch is not a new feature, per se. Apple introduced ECG testing with its Apple Watch Series 4 back in 2019. This year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch 4 with a new BioActive sensor that allows the device to measure the blood pressure, blood oxygen level, and perform ECG tests of users.
So, if Realme releases a smartwatch model with an ECG-testing feature, the company will be competing with the big guns in the industry. However, we expect the Chinese brand to offer the device at a way lower price than Apple or Samsung’s offerings as Realme is aiming to launch its smartwatch under its budget-focused TechLife line.
Nonetheless, as Realme has not yet officially confirmed anything about its upcoming smartwatch, we suggest you take the information with a grain of salt. We expect more details about the wearable to show up in the coming days, so stay tuned for more updates.
