The smartwatch, like many other first versions of major technological advancements, will only improve in iterations. Smartwatches and other wearables are not the results of a search for a solution. They were not created to solve any major problem. There is in turn a way to do something better, if only slightly. Similarly, the smartwatch will grow in the things it can do, and by adding these abilities will gradually gain significant uses. We will soon see good and reliable standalone wearable that will solve a lot of difficulties. This is just the beginning of the technological advancement of Smartwatch technology. Now Redmi is a separate entity and the newly launched Mi watch by China is a different parent company. We think the smartwatch can be bought at a price of Rs.5000 to Rs. 6000 for the base variant.
If it launches in India even at that price then it will be a win-win situation for the buyers to try their hands on a premium and high-end smartwatch. Finally, the most anticipated smartwatch by Redmi has been launched in China. Redmi has also launched Redmi Note 11 series smartphone along with the smartwatch. The new smartphone series is Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus. The new Redmi watch 2 is the second edition of the Redmi smartwatch series. Redmi watch 1 was launched in the first quarter of 2021 in India. The new Redmi watch 2 comes with tremendous features. Some of the prior features of the SmartWatch 2 are AMOLED display, built-in GPS, and large screen as compared to its predecessor.
So let us get to know about the latest Redmi SmartWatch 2 in detail. The approximate dimension of the Redmi SmartWatch 2 is 39.1 x 34.4 x 10 mm (1.54 x 1.35 x 0.39 in). It is comparatively bigger than the Redmi SmartWatch 1. The weight of the Redmi smartwatch 2 is 31 g (1.09 oz). Let us have a detailed analysis of the specification of the SmartWatch, Redmi is offering an AMOLED display in the Redmi SmartWatch 2. Most phones especially Samsung devices have super AMOLED displays, so it’s not a new thing. For protection, nothing extraordinary is required in case you are too worried about your SmartWatch. Just apply a normal screen guard or just a bit expensive one. Regarding colors on the SmartWatch choose one which you like. You can get a protective case online after the launch of the device.
The new Redmi Watch 2 offers a 1.6-inch AMOLED display. The screen-to-body ratio of the SmartWatch is around 63.7 percent. The AMOLED display comes with HDR technology that means it will have a high dynamic range, better shadow, and bright area transition and some people feel better color production too. We actually like large displays, our cell phones have six-inch displays, we find even the smaller “normal” cell phones inconvenient to use. A watch display is even worse. Redmi SmartWatch 2 has a thin bezel that will help the viewer in the optimum viewing experience. Furthermore, it comes with more than a hundred watch faces which support always-on display. So, Redmi is not only offering premium display in Redmi SmartWatch 2, the watch will have some more unique features like a heart rate monitor, blood oxygen saturation tracker (SpO2), and a calibrated sleep analyzer to optimize and deduce deep sleep patterns.
Furthermore, the new SmartWatch 2 also supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou (which helps in tracking workout and running). Redmi SmartWatch 2 will also come with 117 different sports modes of which 17 belong to a professional workout regime. The most unique feature of this watch is NFC, Redmi is offering near field contact technology in the Redmi SmartWatch 2 to render contact in a split of seconds. The SmartWatch 2 will also include XiaoAi assistant which will help in smart control of devices. All you have to do is pair the smartwatch using Bluetooth and install the Android Wear app from Play Store. Also, make sure you have the latest Play Services installed. But we have heard a lot of issues in terms of the connectivity of smartwatches with Xiaomi devices. MIUI has a problem with pairing.
A smartwatch is simply a step forward in the convenience of communication technology. It is slightly more convenient, and more discreet, to read a notification or respond to a message on your wrist than to pull your smartphone out of your pocket or purse. The new SmartWatch 2 will come with a unique power consumption technology that helps in better battery life and low power consumption. The battery life will improve with the new chipset. Redmi has announced that the new SmartWatch will deliver 12 days of battery life on a single charge. The smartwatch will be a water resistance of 5ATM and it will come with a magnetic charger.
All the functionality you seek will take lots more power, and while battery technology has improved marginally in recent years, batteries are pretty much limited by chemistry and the electrochemical characteristics of the anode and cathode materials available, and any chemical elements useful in batteries have already been discovered. The new Redmi Watch 2 has been launched at a price of CNY 399 (it will cost around Rs. 4,700). As we know that the smartwatch has been launched in China, so it will be available to buy in different color variants. The color options are Brown, Olive, and Pink strap shade options. The tech company has also launched Redmi Buds 3 Lite, the new TWS Bluetooth earbuds will be available to buy at a price of CNY 99 (approx. Rs 1200). Both the products will be available for customers from Thursday.
Although the price we have discussed above can change, the global price will be announced later. The exact detail of the price of the smartwatch will be revealed after its introduction in India. Over the last few months or so we have seen not just the leading manufacturers releasing smartwatches but also new companies are also joining this race like Huawei, Redmi, etc. These companies won’t enter any market segment unless they see growth which is mainly led by Apple and Samsung. Of course, Redmi will focus on the mid-tier customers who want to have a smartwatch but don’t want to spend the crazy price on Apple and Samsung. So we can say that there is a bright future for Redmi in the smartwatch industry. There is a lot of competition and the current market is divided into big companies with big names and some startups and less known companies.
You can make plenty of money in both markets, but this type of business requires a lot of capital unless you just want to find a good supplier and make your own brand without manufacturing yourself. Remember how it felt when apple first came out with the iPad (though tablets existed before that, this one was a big move ). A lot of people didn’t know why anyone would need such a large screen but gradually people find uses to it and now in many fields, it is indispensable. The same implies to the smartwatch, with the passing of time people will surely adapt to these new technological wrist watches and maybe in the future, they will replace conventional watches.
