Regular exercise is an excellent way to boost your mood and get in shape. Studies show that regular exercise gives you more than health benefits, it also helps in boosting your confidence. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. That triggers a positive feeling in our body, that positive and energizing outlook that follows after running or working out at the gym which is really important especially in today’s current situation. Having a perfect workout companion like the new realme Watch 2 helps you to keep track of your exercise regimen and health on a daily basis.

While these features aren’t new, they are definitely what most people look for in a smartwatch.

It also comes with 3 AAA batteries which can last up to 365 days according to realme. To insert the battery, you simply twist its back panel in a counterclockwise direction. To lock, you just need to twist in a clockwise direction.
