RealMe expand into wearables and true wireless

RealMe is moving beyond their previous focus on budget smartphones to offer their own equally-affordable takes on Apple's iconic earbuds and popular fitness trackers.

Available in Australia from the 23rd of April, the new RealMe Band and Buds Air true wireless earbuds promise to deliver the form and function of more expensive options at a significantly cheaper price-point. For the former, think a Fitbit Charge. For the latter, Apple's AirPods seem like an obvious aspiration.

It'll be s available for an RRP of AU$149 through the realme e-store, AusPost, Make it Mine, mobileciti, 5GWORLD, Essential Appliance Rentals, Amazon, Kogan, eBay and Catch.com.

Meanwhile, the Buds Air promise clean, white and Cupertino-esque aesthetics paired with a dedicated gaming mode, voice-assistant integration and noise-cancelling microphones that offer better voice pickup. As far as battery life goes, you get 17 hours total - divided into three hour chunks.
