Realme has taken on Xiaomi over the last 12 months, making the latter push harder to maintain its dominance in the Indian smartphone market. Now, the company is set to give tough competition to its domestic rival in the smartwearable segment. Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the company is set to launch a fiitness tracker in the first half of 2020. The same was confirmed by Sheth in the last episode of his YouTube series - #AskMadhav.
Sheth has hinted that the company is currently working on a fitness tracker in India, but did not specify whether the company will launch a fitness band or a smartwatch. "I can see a lot of anticipation. Don't consider Realme just only as a smartphone brand. We aim to become India's largest tech lifestyle brand, and I respect the demand by our fans," Sheth said.
Realme has introduced several accessories in 2019 including the recently launched Realme Buds Air - its first ever truly wireless ear buds.

"We have got some outstanding products in our portfolio, like the Realme Buds Wireless, Realme Buds Air, and the power banks, and even Realme PaySa as a financial app. You will see many more products coming soon…. Talking about the fitness band, I will definitely say it is in the works, and you might see one in the first half of 2020," he added.
In the same episode, Sheth also confirmed that old Realme smartphones like the Realme C1, Realme U1, Realme 1 and Realme 2 will not get Android 10 update. However, he said that even these devices will continue to get new features like Dark Mode. He said that the software team faced some issues while testing the ‘internal audio recording while screen recording' feature, and hence the company couldn't roll it out with the latest OTA updates.
Sheth also confirmed that Realme XT will get Dolby Atmos support for Bluetooth earphones with the Android 10 update.
