Redmi Watch 2 unveiled with 1.6" AMOLED display, cheap Redmi Buds 3 Lite follow
Today’s Redmi event introduced the new Note 11 series phones, along with the sequel to the Redmi Watch from last year as well as a Lite edition of the Redmi Buds 3.
Redmi Watch 2
Xiaomi was able to slim down the bezels of the watch and to fit a larger screen – the Redmi Watch 2 boasts a 1.6” screen (up from 1.4”). Another upgrade is the switch to AMOLED (the old one had an IPS LCD). The screen became taller and its resolution is now 320 x 360 px.The new Redmi Watch 2 has a 1.6" AMOLED display (the original had a 1.4" IPS LCD)
Efficiency also improved, so now the watch can last 12 days on a single charge, the original model had to be put in power saving mode to go that long (according to the official numbers). As before, charging is done with a magnetic connector.
The watch is powered by the Apollo 3.5 chipset and supports 117 different sports modes, including swim tracking. The watch body is rated for 5 ATM (50m) of water resistance. Additionally, it comes with the usual sleep tracking and heart rate monitoring, now a blood-oxygen (SpO2) sensor.
For outdoor activities the Redmi Watch 2 supports four global positioning systems – GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou. Another connectivity feature is NFC.
Despite the larger display and improved battery, the watch itself is lighter – it is down four grams to 31g. Buyers can choose between 3 colors for the watch body and 6 colors for the TPU strap.
The Redmi Watch 2 is on pre-order now and will start shipping on November 11. Its regular price is CNY 400 ($63/€54/₹4,700), but early birds can snatch it up at a promotional price of CNY 350.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite
These cost just CNY 100 ($16/€14/₹1,200), basically half of what the Buds 3 Pro cost (or as global users may know them, the AirDots 3 Pro). These feature a “cat's ear” design, which is intended to make the buds sit more comfortably and more securely in your ears.
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite promise 18 hours of battery life, not quite as impressive as the 28 hours advertised by the Pro model. They still charge over USB-C and come with Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, though no ANC. The buds have basic IP54 water resistance to protect them against rain and sweat.
I have this. The UI is laggier and buggier than id like. Otherwise pretty good. Waiting for updates to smoothen it. I mean the processors should be able to handle another transitions if the dictate developers actually optimized it.
