A number of shops in Europe have jumped the gun and began promoting the Xiaomi Watch 2, a less expensive model of the Xiaomi Watch 2 Professional, though Xiaomi is but to announce the watch formally.
A few shops in Belgium are charging €200 for it, one in Slovakia has it priced at €250. We guess the previous is the supposed value because the Professional mannequin can simply be discovered for €230 as of late (it launched at €270 for the Bluetooth mannequin and €330 for the LTE one).
The Xiaomi Watch 2 has the identical 1.43” 466 x 466px AMOLED show, nevertheless, the 46mm case is made out of aluminum as an alternative of stainless-steel just like the Professional. The watch is accessible in black and silver with an identical TPU strap.
It has a coronary heart fee and SpO2 monitor, built-in GPS and a 5 ATM water resistance score. It’s powered by the identical Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 chipset operating Put on OS. Xiaomi claims 65 hour battery life for each watches, so we assume that the battery capability is identical at 495mAh (in our assessments we received two full days out of the Professional with At all times-On Show enabled and had battery to spare within the night).
By way of connectivity, the Xiaomi Watch 2 has Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi and NFC. Crucially, there isn’t a LTE choice. This and the case materials appear to be the important thing differentiators between the vanilla and Professional watches.
We’ll maintain an eye fixed out for an official press launch from Xiaomi for a affirmation on the worth and different particulars (e.g. will or not it’s out there exterior of Europe?).
