They discuss some of the exceptional features of the TWS earphones’ target audience, the Realme Watch 3 and the Realme Pad X.

Roydon further highlights that this segment has a very narrow area for OEMs to play and hence, companies are applying a lot of technology at this price point. That being said, the TWS probably doesn’t have a major use case in this price range.

Coming to the Realme Watch 3, the wearable is a very basic smartwatch and it goes up against the offerings made by the likes of Noise, Boat and Amazfit.

However, the Bluetooth calling feature – the trend of 2022 smartwatches – is an added advantage. Ali says that this feature works very much like a Bluetooth speaker.
