Realme might challenge the Xiaomi Mi Band in the cheap fitness tracker space
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth just confirmed something quite exciting during yesterday’s episode of #AskMadhav on YouTube. According to Sheth, Realme should be releasing a fitness tracker relatively soon as the company continues to expand its portfolio.
“We aim to become India’s largest tech lifestyle brand,” Sheth said. “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.”
These words are far from a promise, but since they come directly from the mouth of the boss, we expect Realme is pretty close to having a finished product.

Right now, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 is pretty much in a class of its own. It’s definitely the best cheap fitness tracker you can pick up today, and in Xiaomi’s case, cheap doesn’t mean bad. Though there are other cheap competitors out there, like the Fitbit Inspire HR and the Samsung Galaxy Fit, none of them are quite as cheap or as good as the Mi Band 4.
Can Realme’s upcoming fitness tracker bring some honest, compelling competition to the Xiaomi in this sector? Hopefully we will find out next year.
