Realme updates IoT strategy with launch of multiple new products *Updated*

Realme is revamping its AIoT strategy.

During an online product showcase, smartphone manufacturer Realme has updated their previous ‘1+4+N’ IoT (one Core, four Smart Hubs, and N AIOT product) strategy to become ‘1+5+T’ which is defined as 1 smartphone as the centre of its IoT ecosystem, 5 categories, and T for Realme’s IoT brand TechLife which is made up of entertainment, care, and connected products.

1+4+N is now 1+5+T.

To meet this new strategy, Realme also announced new devices that fit into this vision.

 

Making sure IoT doesn’t suck

The first TechLife product.

The first AIoT product under the TechLife brand is their TechLife Robot Vacuum cleaner that mops as well. Equipped with 38 built-in sensors, it uses them to power its LiDAR Smart Mapping and Navigation System which is 12% more accurate than previous LiDAR systems. It also features a 5200mAh battery, a 600ml dust bin and a 300ml smart electronic water tank, ensuring that users do not have to constantly charge and empty the vacuum during cleaning.

Common smart vacuum complaints.

Using the Realme link app, users can take full control of the way they want to clean including merging, splitting, naming different zones in their homes, scheduling cleaning times, and even setting different cleaning modes for each area. Users can also give commands to the vacuum with their own voice or through Google Assistant and Alexa.

Use the app to get control over your cleaning.

The Robot Vacuum is designed to fit into any home with a maximum height of just above 10 cm and an impact-resistant tempered glass cover.

 

Bringing the new Realme Watch 2 series

The Watch 2 Pro has 14 days of battery life.

Realme announced two new smartwatches, the Realme Watch 2 and Watch 2 Pro, to market under their TechLife brand. However, the Watch 2 already went on sale in Singapore in May.

The Realme Watch 2 Pro has a 1.75-inch (320 x 385 pixel) large colour display, and a peak brightness of 600 nits, which is 58% brighter than the previous generation and ensures the display will remain clearly visible even under direct sunlight. It also comes with over 100 different curated watch faces for users to choose from.

Match your mood with over 100 curated watch faces.

Users used to an active and healthy lifestyle can use the smartwatch’s SpO2 Monitor to track blood oxygen saturation levels, the heart rate detection monitor, and a total of 90 sports modes to be inspired to workout.

Its GPS functionality is powered by a dual-satellite GPS system which provides a maximum positioning accuracy of 2.5 metres and a positioning time of up to 2 seconds, enabling accurate location tracking even without using a phone.

Enjoy everything new in the Watch 2 Pro.

Users can also use it with the peace of mind that the battery can deliver 14 days of battery life with its 390mAh high-efficiency battery.
