The Redmi Smart Band Pro has been launched, and it brings lots of new upgrades to the already amazing line-up of smartwatches from the brand! Let’s dive right in!
The Display Department
The band sports a 1.47-inch AMOLED display with a maximum brightness of 450 nits and a pixel density of 282 ppi. A 2.5D tempered glass protects it, while the body is built of polycaprolactam (a form of nylon, plastic) and strengthened with glass fibre, and it can withstand 50 metres of water. Of course, the strap is composed of soft silicone.
Sensors and Workouts
The accelerometer, gyroscope, and PPG heart rate monitor are all standard on the device. There’s also a light sensor for automated display brightness adjustment. According to Redmi, the device can identify more than 110 different types of workouts using those sensors, with 15 of them being professional modes. The ability to track SpO2 (blood oxygen levels) is also included.
Battery and Design
A 200 mAh battery powers everything, and it charges through a little magnetic cord. Under usual use, the Redmi Smart Band Pro should last for roughly 14 days, or 20 days in power-saving mode.
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite, on the other hand, is a scaled-down version of the original, with a more square-ish look than the Band. The display is a 1.55-inch LCD with a resolution of 320 × 360 pixels. In addition to GPS, the same set of sensors are included within. 5 ATM-rated as well.
The smartphone also has a larger 262 mAh battery, which should last you 10 days under typical use or 5 days if you use it a lot. The watch can run for 14 hours straight in GPS mode, which is quite astounding.
The Redmi Smart band Pro is a great device for general purpose usage, but don’t expect it to compete with the same category as Apple or Fossil’s smartwatches. that said, the bands do make a compelling option for a lower end price range which they may target.
