Xiaomi is present on all fronts, even connected bracelets and watches. The Chinese manufacturer offers affordable devices through its Redmi brand, but is also targeting the higher-end range. Xiaomi paired the Watch S1, Watch S1 Pro, then Watch S2 and is now preparing the Watch 2 Pro. MysSmartPrice has published images of the upcoming high-end Xiaomi watch.
True to the collection, the watch will choose an elegant design to compete with the latest models from Samsung or Huawei. Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro will have a rotating bezel to stand out and be closer to the recent Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. The future watch will offer a 1.43-inch AMOLED display integrated into a stainless steel case.
It will have an always-on status and exclusive brand connectivity. In terms of features, the Watch 2 Pro will be able to track body composition. It will add sleep monitoring, SpO2, different sports modes and classic functions to this type of watch. In addition to Bluetooth, Xiaomi will offer variants with 4G LTE.
If we are to believe the images, Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro will be available in two colors. The first version will arrive with a brown leather strap while the second version will opt for black rubber. An approach reminiscent of the current Watch S1, whose case is available in silver (brown strap) and black (black strap).
With or without Wear OS? The answer is at the end of October
One of the big questions has to do with the operating system that Xiaomi is using. The manufacturer has taken to using a proprietary solution with the advantage of offering good integration and interesting autonomy. On the other hand, it does not provide Wear OS flexibility in terms of installing third-party apps. Some rumors claim that Xiaomi could use the Google system in one of its watches. The advantage is access to all Google services, as well as applications on the operating system.
It will be necessary to wait a few more weeks before discovering the new watch. The Watch S2 Pro will be officially released at the end of October and will cost around 400 euros, according to information from MySmartPrice. So she could be an interesting outsider until the end of the year. Remember that Apple is scheduled to update its Apple Watch smart watch on Tuesday, September 12, while Google will meet on October 4 to announce the Pixel Watch 2.
