Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi is all set to launch its first smartwatch in India. The Redmi Watch is scheduled to arrive in India on May 13 alongside the Redmi Note 10S. The company had announced the launch through invites on social media, but now the upcoming smartwatch has appeared on Flipkart ahead of the launch.
Redmi has teased the design of the smartwatch on Flipkart without revealing its name. The listing reveals that the smartwatch will be launched on May 13. The listing also highlights some of the features that the Redmi Watch will come with. The Redmi Watch will come with 11 sports modes, over 200+ watch faces, a sleep monitor and a heart rate monitor. The smartwatch will also come with a built-in GPS, GLONASS for better navigation. Reports have stated that the Mi Watch Lite could be launched as the Redmi Watch. So let us have a look at the expected price and specifications of the smartwatch
Redmi Watch: Expected price
There has been no indication about the pricing of the Redmi Watch in India but the smartwatch was earlier launched in China, so we have a fair idea whether it would be a budget offering or a mid-range offering. The smartwatch was launched in China for CNY 299 (roughly Rs. 3,400). The Indian pricing of the smartwatch is expected to be similar to the price of the watch in China. IT will most certainly cater to the budget audience. The smartwatch was launched with interesting color options in China including Ivory, Black, Navy blue, and Olive. Once the smartwatch is launched, it will most likely lock horns with the likes of Realme Watch, Amazfit Bip U, and other smartwatches in the budget category.
Redmi Watch: Specifications
The Redmi Watch was already made official in China so we are not alien to the specifications of the device. The smartwatch is expected to come with a 1.4-inch display with a resolution of 320x320 pixels. The display comes with features including automatic brightness control based on ambient lighting conditions. The watch is equipped to track various activities running, cycling, and indoor swimming. It comes with 11 sports modes. It can monitor the heart rate 24◊7 and comes with sleep tracker.
As per the company, the watch has a 9-day battery life on typical usage, as it comes using a 230mAh battery that can be fully charged in 2 hours. However, this is done only through a proprietary charger.
