Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro and Buds 4 Pro in for review

0 9

Xiaomi just had its big announcement event in Barcelona where the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro were launched on the international stage. We also saw the Watch S1 Pro wearable and the Buds 4 Pro TWS earbuds on stage, but more importantly, we also have them in the office.

The gadgets are both flagship versions in each respectable category – the Watch S1 Pro arrived in black with a black fluoroelastomer strap, and the color is the same for the Buds 4 Pro.

Xiaomi brought the Watch S1 Pro in only one size – 46mm diameter with a 1.47″ AMOLED touch screen. The strap matches complements the body well. There is a sapphire glass on the top to protect the screen from almost all scratches.

The crown button rotates to scroll and can also be pressed down, while the other button is just a shortcut button that doubles as a power button when long pressed. There are also sensors on the back for pulse measurement and SpO2 (blood pressure) monitoring.

The battery is 500 mAh and can be charged with any Qi wireless charger, but Xiaomi provided its own magnetic charger that sticks firmly to the back. The design of the buckle is of course borrowed from Apple, but that’s not a bad thing – if it fits, it fits.

Moving to the Buds 4 Pro, the buds have been completely redesigned and have nothing in common with the previous series. The stem and bud have an aesthetically pleasing curve, and one part is glossy while the other is matte, completing the premium design. Similarly, the top of the case is reflective, while the bottom is dull dark. The most impressive thing is how the buttons sit in the case.

Xiaomi sends audio wearables with two more pairs of rubber tips, but our first test shows that the medium option is enough. We also have a white cable that doesn’t match the whole aesthetic vibe, but thankfully the Buds 4 Pro case supports wireless charging, meaning they can get juiced up on a whim.

Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro and Xiaomi Buds 4 Pro reviews are already underway, so stay tuned to read our verdict if they’re the wearables you need in 2023.
