Redmi introduces Watch 3, Band 2, and Buds 4 Lite in jubilant colors
Xiaomi today introduced the Redmi K60 top-tier smartphones and a new Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed midranger. The scene also saw the arrival of three smart wearable devices – a Redmi Watch 3 with a bigger screen, a new Band 2 with a thin and light body and Buds 4 Lite in smart colors at a low price.
All can be bought in China.
Redmi Watch 3
The new notebook comes with a square AMOLED display that is 1.75″ in diagonal. It is 341 PPI and supports a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and Redmi said it could reach 600 nits of brightness. The body has flat sides, corresponding to the current trend in smartphones and there is one hard button on the side.
The Redmi Watch 3 brings Always-On Display and while the device is on, it can have over 200 different watch faces.
Xiaomi improved the battery in the Watch 3, and now it can work for 12 days on a single charge with continuous SpO2 (blood pressure) and heart rate monitoring. The device is certified for underwater use at 5 ATM and also works with GNSS for precise tracking in sports.
Speaking of sports, there are 121 different training modes and the wearable can work independently without the need for a smartphone companion as it has GPS navigation. However, a phone is needed for Bluetooth calls, and the company included a noise-canceling microphone for better call quality.
Xiaomi Redmi Watch 3 Key Features
The price of Redmi Watch 3 is set at CNY 499. It comes in black or white (which looks more like ivory), though there are three colorful straps for further customization – they cost CNY69 extra.
Redmi Band 2
With the launch of this wearable device, the lines between a smartwatch and a smart band are more blurred than ever. Band 2 has a 1.47” screen, which is 76% more than the first Redmi Band. The band itself is 9.99 mm thick and weighs 14.9 grams.
This device doesn’t support Bluetooth calling, but still offers smart features like blood oxygen measurement and a menstrual cycle tracker for ladies. There are over 30 training modes and the battery can last six days on a single charge with heavy use or almost 14 days with “normal” use.
The Redmi Band 2 will cost CNY159 until the end of 2022, after which the price will jump to CNY169. There are six color options for the user: Fluorescent Green, Pink Gold, Black, Light Blue, Dark Green and White.
Redmi Buds 4 Lite
These earphones are also called Youth in Chinese as they are advertised for young audiences who love bright colors.
These Buds 4 Lite come with a 12mm driver for deep sound and smart noise reduction during calls. Each bud weighs only 3.9 grams and the whole package, two buds + case, offers up to 20 hours of battery life. Other specs include Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity that works wonders for instant connection with select Xiaomi devices, and the buds are IP54 certified against water and dust ingress.
Redmi Buds 4 Lite comes in white and black, which are pretty common colors. The more exciting options are Orange, where the buds and the case are brightly colored, and Green, where only the buds and the inside of the case share the same paint.
The price is CNY139 until the end of the year; then it changes to CNY149.
