Realme could be about to drop more new smartwatches, after sequels to its current devices showed up in source code.

The Tech Guy spotted a mention of the Realme Watch 2 and Watch 2 Pro in source code for the Realme app, which shows that new devices are indeed on the way.

The Realme Watch led the charge of the $50 smartwatch when it was globally launched last summer. It features a more basic 1.4-inch screen, sports tracking modes, activity and sleep tracking and a week of battery life.

It got a three star score from our review, although it has quickly dated with the current deluge of budget smartwatches.

Since its launch it’s fair to say there’s been a full on assault on the sub-$100 smartwatch market.

The Amazfit Bip U has arrived in North America with an enhanced screen that blows the Realme Watch out of the water. And there’s a Pro variant with GPS for just $69.99.

We’ve also seen the Ticwatch GTX also challenge the Realme at $59.

Xiaomi is also prepped to release the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite, for which pricing is still unclear.

So it’s interesting to see that Realme is already plotting a follow-up device.

We’d welcome a boost in screen quality and the addition of GPS would also make it a really compelling device.
