Xiaomi has unveiled the Watch S1 Pro, the 'Pro' model to the popular Watch S1. Equipped with a larger display, the Watch S1 Pro also has a more power-efficient chipset that should provide better battery life compared to the Watch S1.

Xiaomi has presented its latest premium smartwatch, debuting in the wake of the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro. As Xiaomi's teasers implied, the Watch S1 Pro contains a few changes compared to the standard Watch S1, including a larger display. Specifically, the Watch S1 Pro has a 1.47-inch display, up from the 1.43-inch panel in the Watch S1 and Watch S1 Active.

According to Xiaomi, the Watch S1 Pro's display operates at 480 x 480 pixels. Incidentally, the 1.47-inch display relies on AMOLED technology and is protected by sapphire crystal, along with a stainless steel case. Xiaomi adds that the Watch S1 Pro has a CNC-milled body, as well as a CNC-milled digital crown. For reference, the latter is a new feature too; the Watch S1 and Watch S1 Active have two physical buttons, instead.

Moreover, Xiaomi has based the Watch S1 Pro on a 12 nm SoC, paired with a 500 mAh battery. Supposedly, the combination results in up to fifteen days of battery life, theoretically three days longer than the Watch S1 or Watch S1 Active. Furthermore, Xiaomi has included GPS and NFC modules, the former of which can be used in conjunction with some of the smartwatch's 100+ sports modes. The Watch S1 Pro is already orderable in China, where it retails for CNY 1,499 (~US$222). Unfortunately, Xiaomi has not confirmed whether it intends to release the Watch S1 Pro globally.
