Poco Watch in for review
Fresh off its announcement, we have the new Poco Watch in for testing. This is Poco's first foray into smart wearables and it's in keeping with the company's doctrine - nice features at aggressive price.
The Poco Watch is just €79 and is on sale from now. It comes in a simple box with the watch itself (ours is the Black but there are also Blue and Gold versions) as well as a proprietary pin charger.
Controls and features on the Poco Watch are on par with the rest of the market - there's a single button that wakes the watch and then takes you to the app screen or back to the homescreen. On the inside, there's a combined SpO2 and heart rate sensor that can track your pulse constantly.
One negative with the Poco Watch is the non-replaceable band. It attaches through a proprietary mechanism so you can't attach your standard straps.
The Poco Watch is quite petite. It packs a very respectable 1.6-inch AMOLED display, but the watch itself is very small. Pictured here on an average male wrist, it looks a bit too tiny.
But that smaller size means that the watch is very light, just 31 grams. That makes it a better fit for a sleep tracker than your average 44 mm-sized watch.
The Poco Watch also has some must-have features out of the gate, like an always-on display, GPS, health tracking with more than 100 modes, notifications, and two-week battery life.
It's a promising start. But you might want to stay tuned for our full review before you make a decision on the purchase of the the Poco Watch.

It looks like a rebadged Redmi Watch 2 Lite (the specs are the same), and if it is then the straps are replaceable.
