The Realme Band UI has been updated to work perfectly under the sun, the company claims. Additionally, the fitness tracker firmware will come with version 6.0.
Similarly, the Weather app on the Realme Band has a new page with daily weather information. The Weather app can provide real-time data through the user’s location information through the Realme Link app. Realme stated that the heart sensor has been upgraded to provide more accurate data.
“Users can use the update on high and low heart rate alerts – a feature that will be useful for health-conscious and fitness enthusiasts,” Realme said in a statement.
The latest version of Realme Band is also expected to support the features available on the original Realme Band. These include sleep quality monitor, idol alert, cricket mode, and nine sport modes. Similarly, the original realme band has an IP68 rating, which is deferred to protect against dirt, dust, sand, and “occasional submersion” present in the water.
