Following the launch of the Watch 2 just a few days ago, the Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi was able to move an incredible 28,000 units of the product in just two hours.
The watch released the year before is being replaced by its second-generation model to refresh your memory. Its enhancements can take on a few different kinds. The most noteworthy improvement is a larger AMOLED display that is 1.6 inches in size. The previous generation had only a 1.4-inch IPS LCD display at its disposal. The other significant improvement is that Connected GPS has been replaced with built-in GNSS (GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, and GALILEO). When it comes to tracking your outside activities like running or cycling, the first option is far more beneficial because it does not depend on the satellite signal transmitted by your smartphone.
The majority of fitness trackers also come equipped with a variety of other sensors. They consist of a gyroscope, accelerometer, optical heart rate sensor, SpO2 sensor, and ambient light sensor. This list is even more astounding when you consider that the Redmi Watch 2 costs only about $60, making it one of the most affordable smartwatches on the market.
The clock is powered by a bespoke real-time operating system (RTOS) that is particularly easy on the battery. Therefore, you should anticipate going up to a week between charges and up to twelve days if you use it frequently. When GNSS is turned on, this time decreases to a more respectable 8 hours.
According to the initial report that GizmoChina made, the wristwatch is selling really well. The company sold around 28,000 pieces, and their combined value was approximately RMB 10 million (or $1.56). And that was just in the first two hours after the product was made available to the public!
We have not yet received any information regarding the timing of the timepiece’s launch in international markets outside those of its home country. On November 11th, customers who have placed a pre-order will begin to get their packages. Since the product came before anyone could purchase this one outside of China, we are presuming that it will also be possible to do so with this one.
Both the Redmi Watch 2 Lite and the Redmi Smart Band Pro are Available Now
A version of the clock with fewer features and fewer bells and whistles has also been introduced by the company. The new model, which has been given the name Redmi Watch 2 Lite, has a display that is 1.55 inches smaller and has a slightly lower battery life. However, all of the sensors on its older brother are also present on this model, including a built-in GPS. It has not yet been determined how much money that one will cost.
The Chinese-based company introduced its third wearable product this week with the announcement of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite. The other one is the Redmi Smart Band Pro, which is a fitness band with a huge display and the typical assortment of activity sensors. We haven’t talked about it yet because we haven’t discussed it yet. We are now putting it through its paces, so stay tuned for a comprehensive review sometime in the next few days.
