First launched in India last month, realme today has announced that the realme Watch S Pro will be heading to Malaysia at the end of January 2021. Surprisingly, the new fitness-oriented wearable will be released through realme Brand Store and authorised dealers first before being made available on the brand’s Lazada and Shopee stores on 4 February.
One of the biggest changes that the Pro model brought to the table is the inclusion of a dedicated GPS chip which allows users to track their outdoor runs or cycling sessions without relying on their phone’s GPS. The Watch S Pro also comes with a stainless steel body as opposed to the standard Watch S which is equipped with aluminium body.
The Pro model also features a slightly bigger 1.39-inch display and 420mAh battery but its battery life is lower than the standard variant of Watch S at 14 days. This is not exactly surprising though given that the Pro model has a better display and built-in GPS.
Not to forget, the Watch S Pro also has much higher water resistance level at 5ATM which is why realme has included Swimming mode for the fitness wearable. This is not something that you would be able to do with the standard model since the Watch S is not designed for swimming and shower.
As mentioned earlier, the realme Watch S Pro will be available in Malaysia starting from 30 January onwards for RM 599. However, if you prefer to purchase it online, then you have to wait until 4 February for it to appear at realme’s official store on Lazada and Shopee.
