Xiaomi has unveiled the Redmi Watch 2 as part of its Redmi Note 11 series launch event. The Redmi Watch 2 has a 1.6-inch AMOLED display and a SpO2 sensor but at an affordable price.

Xiaomi has announced another Redmi product today, having already showcased the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus. The Redmi Watch 2 follows in the footsteps of the eponymous model that Xiaomi released nearly a year ago.

Unsurprisingly, the Redmi Watch 2 contains a few upgrades over its predecessor, including its new display. According to the company's marketing materials, it has equipped the Redmi Watch 2 with a 1.6-inch AMOLED display that supports over 100 pre-installed watch faces. In comparison, the Redmi Watch has a 1.4-inch display, and an IPS one at that.

Additionally, Xiaomi has included 117 exercise and sports modes, complemented by a built-in GPS module that supports location services like BeiDou, Galileo and GLONASS. Similarly, the Redmi Watch 2 has a SpO2 sensor for monitoring blood oxygen levels and a heart rate monitor that can keep track of you while exercising.

The Redmi Watch 2 even has NFC onboard for making contactless payments, although it remains to be seen if the smartwatch comes to other markets. Incidentally, Xiaomi claims that the Redmi Watch 2 should last up to 12 days between charges, presumably less if you use the GPS module for extended periods.

Xiaomi has confirmed that it will initially sell the Redmi Watch 2 for CNY 349 (~US$55). The smartwatch will eventually increase to CNY 399 (~US$62); it will be orderable in three colours at launch.
