Alongside the Redmi Note 11 series launch, Redmi also unveiled Redmi Watch 2. The new smartwatch from the brand is the successor to the Redmi Watch released last year.

The Redmi watch 2 (M2102W1) features a polycarbonate (plastic) build like its predecessor. However, it has a larger and better 1.6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 320 x 360 pixels.

The wearable uses a 125 ~ 205m interchangeable TPU strap. The product measures 39.1 x 34.4 x 9.98mm in dimensions without the strap and weighs only 31g with the strap. It is 5 ATM water-resistant and can also track swims. In fact, it offers 117 sports modes with automatic detection for some.

The device runs a customized RTOS like any other budget smartwatches in the market. This means it is merely a fitness tracker disguised as a smartwatch.

It connects with smartphones (Android 5.0+, iOS 10.0+) via Bluetooth 5.0. It has all the essential sensors like an optical heart rate sensor, an SpO2 sensor for blood oxygen level monitoring, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and an ambient light sensor for auto-brightness.

Unlike most affordable wearables, it also comes with GNSS (BeiDou, GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO) for accurate activity tracking. It also features NFC for travel passes and access control.

Other features include 100+ watch faces, sleep tracking, stress monitoring, menstrual cycle tracking, breathing exercise, Xiao AI device controls, and more.
