Unlike Apple Watch or any other premium smartphones, the Realme Watch does not allow the users to attend the voice calls. However, the Realme Watch is designed to provide notification alerts like any voice calls, SMS messages, or chat messages on apps such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. However, the users can reject a call or mute its alert directly from the smartwatch.
