Along with the Redmi Note 10S, Xiaomi has also launched the new Redmi Watch in India today. The smartwatch comes with a rectangular design and it actually manages to look pretty decent. We already knew that the Redmi Watch would be out today alongside the Note 10S, but now that the launch has concluded, here is everything you need to know about the Redmi Watch.
Redmi watch specifications
The Redmi Watch comes with a rectangular design, as mentioned above. The smartwatch includes a 1.4-inch TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 320 × 320 pixels and a brightness of 350 nits.
The smartwatch also comes with a bunch of sensors to track workouts and to track health. Here’s a PPG heart rate sensor, along with a three-axis accelerometer sensor, a geomagnetic sensor, a barometer, a gyroscope, and an ambient light sensor. The Redmi Watch also includes Bluetooth 5.1 and supports GPS and GLONASS for location services.
The Redmi Watch also comes with a 230 mAh battery inside, which Xiaomi claims is enough to last 10 days on one charge. That’s not the best battery life we’ve seen in smartwatches, but it’s still pretty decent.
Redmi Watch Features
As evident from the sensors in the Redmi Watch bundles, there are a ton of health and fitness features in tow. Obviously here you get heart rate tracking with time intervals of 1 minute, 5 minutes or 30 minutes. There is also sleep detection built into the watch. However, the Redmi Watch doesn’t come with a SpO2 sensor, which means you can’t track your blood oxygen levels with it. That feels a bit strange, because the Mi Band 6 has the sensor, and it’s one of those things that feels extremely important to have during these times.
Other than that, the watch comes with the usual fitness and physical activity features. There is step tracking and support for workouts like jogging, jogging, cycling, etc.
Apart from all that, the Redmi Watch also reflects notifications from your smartphone. However, these are not actionable notifications. Incoming calls will also appear on your watch with the option to reject or silence the call. You can also use the watch to control music playback on your smartphone, if you like.
Pricing and availability
The Redmi Watch launched at ₹ 3,999. You can buy it from May 25 at mi.com and Mi Home stores, as well as on Flipkart.
