Realme Buds Q2 and Realme Watch 2 goes on sale in Singapore

Shortly after the Realme 8 5G smartphone launch, the Chinese brand is adding two more mobile accessories to its stable, helping to round off its mobile offering: the Realme Buds Q2, Realme Watch 2, and Realme Buds Air 2.

 

Realme Buds Q2

According to Realme, the Realme Buds Q2 true wireless earbuds saw several upgrades from their predecessor. The newer pair increased its touch area for easier controls, improved its components to help strengthen wireless transmission, and has a lower microphone for clearer calls.

The Buds Q2 are otherwise similar to what you'd get in other true wireless stereos (TWS). Despite being only 4.1g per side and 39g with the charging case, they offer up to 20 hours of battery life combined. It packs fast-charging capabilities that pump out 120 minutes of playback with just 10 minutes of rejuicing as well.

Buds Q2 used a Peek+TPU polymer composite diaphragm to uphold its audio quality and packed it further with Bass Boost+ software tuning. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 for connections, and it's also IPX4-certified for water resistance.

Other perks are its Environmental Noise Cancellation and an 88ms low-latency Gaming Mode for better audio syncing.

Realme Buds Q2 comes in Black at just S$69, starting from 29 May 2021. It's available on Realme's official e-commerce platforms like Shopee and Lazada.

 

Realme Watch 2

The Realme Watch 2 is a smartwatch that packs sports and health tracking, phone notification support, and smart appliance control into one device. While its display remains at the same size and resolution (1.4-inch, 320 x 320 pixels resolution), it now offers a 30Hz refresh rate for improved responsiveness and a smoother user experience.

Now, there are a total of 90 sports modes across a diverse panel of sporting activities - beyond the typical running and cycling, it now includes other spots like roller-blading, street dance, and outdoor cross-country tracking.

Like its predecessor, it packs a PPG Sensor for blood oxygen and heart rate tracking, on top of sleep monitoring - all in real-time. It's also a remote control for Realme's AIoT ecosystem, where users can remotely control compatible speakers, light bulbs, smart sockets, and other AIoT products.

The Realme Watch 2 goes on retail from 29 May 2021 onwards at S$99. It's available on Realme's official e-commerce platforms like Shopee and Lazada.

 

Realme Buds Air 2

Another TWS that joins Realme this round is the Realme Buds Air 2. This one features a new R2 intelligent noise reduction chip to support its Active Noise Cancellation feature. Besides having a noise reduction depth of up to 25dB, the buds also offer Transparency Mode to cancel out noise while allowing conversations to go through.

Even its built-in dual microphones support noise cancellation since it helps to cancel out ambient noise during calls.

Buds Air 2's sound quality relies on its carbon diaphragm, which is key to its low 0.5% distortion rate. It packs 25 hours of playback (buds and case together), has IPX5 resistance, and improved 88ms latency via its Game Mode.

The Realme Buds Air 2 officially goes on sale at S$99 from 24 May 2021 onwards. It's available on Realme's official e-commerce platforms like Shopee and Lazada.

 

Exclusive promotion on Shopee

As an exclusive pre-launch promotion, the Realme Buds Q2, Realme Watch 2, and Realme Buds Air 2 will go at S$39, S$79 and S$69 respectively on Shopee between 24 May to 30 May.
