Redmi has launched its first-ever smartwatch in its home country China. The new smartwatch comes with a square dial with multiple fitness features and other smart features.
The watch has a 1.4-inch rectangular display with curved glass, and it comes in black, white, and blue color variants. The silicone strap is available in black, white, blue, green, and pink. There’s a single button on the side of the watch, with everything else being handled by the touchscreen or the Mi Fit app on a paired smartphone.
The Redmi Watch has been launched as an affordable offering that is aimed at entry-level users. The Redmi Watch has been launched in China at a price of CNY 299 or about $45. but offers a decent spec sheet and feature list for the price.
Other specs include NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, a heart rate monitor, and waterproofing up to 50m. Xiaomi claims that battery life will be good for up to 7 days, or 12 days if you use a power-saving mode. The UI and watch faces make heavy use of black backgrounds, not unlike the Apple Watch, though at this price you can’t expect an OLED display.
