Realme Band review: a basic and very cheap bracelet

The landing of the realme ecosystem has come from the hand of three new devices: headphones, a watch, and a bracelet. The latter, the realme Band, is the center of the analysis at hand and is the cheapest accessory of those presented.
Pretty and light
One of the most positive aspects of this product is its design. It is not particularly different from others we have seen but it certainly does not leave you indifferent, with a screen embedded in a gray and black core that curves slightly and a strap that can be removed on both sides.
This strap is available in three colors: black, yellow, and army green, the color that we have tested. The touch is not bad but it shows that it is an economic product. The strap is not as rigid as in other bracelets, such as the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 or the Honor Band 5.credit: third party image reference
On the wrist, it feels exceptionally light and it's little more than 20 grams of weight makes it go unnoticed. Water-resistance is guaranteed thanks to the IP 68 certification it has.
A color screen ... that is not touch
When I announced the realme Band, I must admit that I did not dislike it, but I also admit that I took it for granted that the screen would be touch. Yes, the price indeed invites to think that it would not be so, but in such a competitive market this can be a problem.
On the other hand, the brightness of the screen is configurable in the connection app, but it is insufficient when the sun is shining, the same thing that happens to the realme Watch.
As for the customization of the screen, we can choose several spheres, although at the moment the number is very limited. This is something that possibly increases over time, as we have seen in other models, but even 5 is too low to start with.credit: third party image reference
As a curiosity, there is an option in the application that allows you to change the interface from a vertical alignment to a horizontal one. Perfect if you are one of those who carry the screen on the inside of the wrist instead of the outside.
More functions than what is seen on the screen
The functions of the bracelet focus on sports. We have activity monitoring, heart rate measurement, sleep quality record ...
It also serves as an alarm clock by being able to set alarms, as a timer and even as a notification for notifications and calls.
All this can be configured in the realme Link application, an app that, as we will see in the next section, is too important.
