Xiaomi reveals the Redmi Watch 2 Lite in six colours with up to 10 days of battery life and a GPS module
Xiaomi has announced another Redmi smartwatch, the third this week. As we have previously reported, the company has already unveiled the Redmi Watch 2 and Redmi Smart Band Pro, which appear to share similar hardware. Now, Xiaomi has added the Redmi Watch 2 Lite to its website.
As its name suggests, the Redmi Watch 2 Lite is a cheaper alternative to the Redmi Watch 2. Accordingly, the former has an IPS display rather than an AMOLED one, presumably to keep costs down. The display measures 1.55-inches across and resolves at 320 x 360 pixels, for reference.
Additionally, the Redmi Watch 2 Lite measures 41.2 x 35.3 x 10.7 mm and weighs 35 g with a strap attached. The smartwatch also has an optical heart rate sensor, a SpO2 sensor, an electronic compass and a gyroscope, along with a GPS module that supports BeiDou, Galileo and GLONASS location services.
Xiaomi claims that the Redmi Watch 2 Lite should last up to 10 days between charges of its 262 mAh under typical usage, which reduces to 5 days with heavy usage. Xiaomi defines the former as:
heart rate monitoring set as the default 30-minute interval, sleep monitoring on (with advanced monitoring off), stress all-day monitoring on, 2 times of blood oxygen measurement every day, 24-hour non-stop step tracking on, 100 notifications displayed every day, 2 alarms set every day, 100 times of raise-to-wake to check the screen every day, data synced with the phone once every day, 2 times of 30-min outdoor sports (with GPS on) every week.
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite will be available in six colours, shown below. Unfortunately, Xiaomi has not confirmed when it will begin selling the smartwatch, nor for how much or in which markets.
