Realme's first-ever smartwatch was an Apple Watch clone, whereas its second had a round face and a Pro variant. A new FCC registration reveals the OEM has gone back to a square face for its next wearable. It has an on-trend blood oxygen monitor, as well as "dynamic" heart-rate tracking and IP68 ingress-protection.

Realme has a new wearable ready to go in 2021. This has been put beyond a doubt with a new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval for a device called the RMW2008 - or Watch 2. This is also certainly a successor for the first-gen Watch, which launched as an affordable Apple Watch mimic in 2020.

With its square 1.4-inch 320x320 TFT display and relatively small 305mAh battery, it seems the Watch 2 might be as budget as its predecessor. Then again, it also packs a high-demand blood-oxygen sensor. This is apparent as the FCC has handily posted the Realme wearable's entire user manual, which is very informative about its specs and day-to-day functions.

From this, we now know the Watch 2 will have the 24-hour Dynamic Heart-Rate Monitor also seen in the Watch S series. It also supports a range of workout modes as well as a meditation mode, and can track a user's sleep. Its general non-health-related uses include media and notification controls for a connected smartphone.

Then again, the FCC certification does not cover which OS or chipset the Watch 2 is to use. However, whatever platform it has, it supports Bluetooth 5.0 BLE. Otherwise, a buyer should expect sizeable black bezels around the wearable's display, set in an IP68 case connected to a strap that has the current Realme motto ("Dare to Leap") incised into it.

Therefore, this Realme Watch 2 might be expected to debut soon, in the North American market at the least. Depending on its price-range, it will compete with others in its category from brands such as Zepp, Amazfit and Xiaomi.

The first-gen Realme Watch is now on Amazon
