Redmi Watch: specifications
Since Redmi already launched Redmi Watch in China last November, we know the key specifications of the device. This smartwatch was launched globally as Mi Watch Lite.
To remind you, the smartwatch sports a 1.4 inch square color LCD touch panel with 323 PPI. you get more than 200 watch faces to customize the appearance. Health-related features include 30-day heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, 11 sports modes, and more.
A key difference to the Redmi Watch coming to India is the GPS compatibility. Unlike the Chinese variant that lacks built-in GPS, the Indian Redmi Watch variant will offer built-in GPS / GLONASS for navigation. This way, you don’t have to carry your phone if you are going for a walk or bike ride. This brings the next Redmi Watch closer to the Mi Watch Lite than its Chinese variant.
Since Xiaomi is known to follow an aggressive pricing strategy for Redmi devices, it will be interesting to see how the next wearable device is priced in India. The presence of GPS support on board should make the device an attractive option in the country. We’ll cover the Redmi launch event on May 13 as it happens, so stay tuned for more details.
