Realme Watch 2 Pro announced with 1.75" screen, GPS and 14-day battery life
The Realme Watch 2 Pro looks similar to the vanilla Watch 2 but sports a larger screen that measures 1.75" diagonally and has a resolution of 385x320 pixels. It also has a 30Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 600 nits.
Like the Watch 2, the Pro version also supports 100+ watchfaces, including the new live options. But, you now get the Master Edition watchfaces as well that are designed by South Korean artist Grafflex - the same person who collaborated with Realme for the development of Watch S Master Edition.
Another key difference between the Watch 2 and the Watch 2 Pro is in the battery department. The former ships with a 315 mAh cell advertised to offer 12-day autonomy, while the latter packs a larger 390 mAh battery claimed to provide 14 days of endurance.
And, while the Realme Watch 2 relies on the connected smartphone for route tracking, the Pro model has a built-in dual-satellite GPS, eliminating the need for a smartphone to map your workout routes.
The rest of the features on the Watch 2 Pro are in line with the Watch 2, meaning you get sleep tracking, heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen level measurement, sedentary reminder, drink reminder, and meditation breathing. Realme also promises support for 90 sports modes through a future OTA, so out of the box, you get 16 workout modes like the Watch 2.
The Watch 2 Pro also comes with music and camera controls, a phone finder, weather forecasting, IoT control, and IP68 dust and water resistance. Moreover, the smartwatch also alerts you of app notifications and incoming calls, although you can only reject the calls since the Watch 2 Pro doesn't have a microphone and a speaker to allow conversations.
The Realme Watch 2 Pro has Space Grey and Metallic Silver color options, with the bundled liquid silicone straps coming in Black and Light Grey colors, respectively. The wearable is priced at RM299 ($70/€60) and will go on sale in Malaysia starting May 29.
Some people prefer to watch in a smoother frame rate of 60fps. Deal with it.

These guys don't know that 60fps can always be dropped down to 30fps in editing.

That is why you only see high FPS from fast-paced action videos as it involves a lot of movement. For slow pan or movement, 30fps and 24fps are more preferable.
