The Realme Band received a major software update back in April which brought the weather feature and the ability to make the connected phone ring if you misplaced it. Now the smartband has picked up a new update which brings in two highly requested features – Music Control and Stopwatch.
These features come with the V6.0 update and you can install it on your Realme Band through the Realme Link app installed on your connected smartphone. The installation process will take about 10 minutes to complete, after which you’ll find these two features under the ‘Custom functions’ menu of the Realme Link app along with ‘Weather’ and ‘Find Phone’. Do note that you can only enable any two features at a time.
In addition to Music Control and Stopwatch, the new update squashes known bugs and adds a heart rate reminder function that will alert you when your pulse has been above or below a threshold for 10 minutes when you were inactive.
The Realme Band unveiled in March comes with a decent set of features which include IP68 dust and water resistance, 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and a USB-A connector for hassle-free charging. You can read our detailed review of Realme Band to learn all about it.
