{Disarmed} Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite, contact: the renewal of what was already more than a Mi Band

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite, contact: the renewal of what was already more than a Mi Band

Smart watches are another of Xiaomi's star products. This was demonstrated by the company with the Mi Watch Lite , a very complete device that changed the paradigm, since there was no middle ground between the Mi Band 6 and the Xiaomi Mi Watch .

It has only been a couple of days since Xiaomi launched the Redmi Watch 2 on the market , which would correspond to the new generation of the Mi Watch Lite. Although we have already seen the differences between the two models, today we will focus on knowing first-hand what this new device offers and our feeling after taking it out of the box.

An evolution that continues to minimize frames

Design is one of the sections that draws the most attention about this type of wearable . It is one of the most successful features, since being an inexpensive device, the technologies to obtain tighter frames are democratizing.

Keep in mind that at first glance it seems that the screen occupies all the space, although the truth is that it has a chin at the bottom, very well hidden , by the black background that covers the entire space.

This time Xaomi continues to bet on a square design , leaving the round dials for the Mi Watch.

On the right side we find a single button that we can access in a simple way and that serves both to unlock the device, in the event that you do not have the wrist turn configured, and to access the menu from the sphere, where we will find all the "applications" that are pre-installed.

Finally, if we turn the clock, we find the heart rate sensor, the pulse oximeter, the pin connection through which we can recharge the battery in a simple way. It also houses the Redmi logo with the device model in a smaller size.

One of the curiosities that has caught our attention is that the silicone strap that is included and pre-installed on the watch has a physical button that you must press in the case of removing it.

Color touchscreen and slightly larger

The screen is one of the differences that differentiate this new device from its predecessor, and not only in size, which goes from 1.4 to 1.55 inches , but the panel technology is not the same either.

As soon as you take it out of the box you find a panel that is compatible with " Always On Display ", despite not incorporating AMOLED technology, which does not make much sense considering that the panel turns on completely, and some colors bright.

The resolution has also pleasantly surprised us , since as it is possible to read, not respond, notifications from the smartphone through the watch, they are displayed clearly.

The brightness in this case is manual , since it does not integrate any type of brightness sensor, which perhaps would have been good now that its price is somewhat higher compared to the previous version.

One of the things that has caught our attention the most is that although we have chosen Spanish as a language, many parts are still in English , a common event due to its new arrival on the market and that will probably be solved soon, but that for the moment there it is.

In the full review we will check how the screen behaves in different circumstances, although for the moment it leaves us with a good taste in our mouths.

Goodbye Mi Fit, hello Xiaomi Wear

Xiaomi Wear

After setting the language and region, the Redmi Watch 2 Lite offers you a QR code through which you can download the app . One of the curiosities is that, despite the fact that Xiaomi Wear is already available in both the Google Play Store and the App Store , the company downloads the .APK file from its official page.

Of course, it should be noted that it is possible to update the app from the Google Play Store in a simple way, so beyond this curiosity, it does not matter from which of the two sources you download it.

Mi Fit is ceasing to be the gateway between devices , being replaced by Xiaomi Wear, in fact, Xiaomi has tools that allow information to be passed from one app to the other .

The app automatically detects the Xiaomi ID that you have linked to your smartphone, so it is really convenient to log in for the first time.

In fact, in this app it is not necessary to even link the new device manually, but by having Bluetooth activated the Watch looking for a device, it connects immediately.

The design offered by this new app is very beautiful and intuitive . It remains to be seen if it ends up being as beautiful as it is effective by recording the different activities and sending incoming notifications to the clock.

It should also be noted that it was updated as soon as it was paired with the smartphone and, probably, it will be updated soon, correcting some errors, such as the language.

Customizable spheres and a multitude of pre-installed applications

One of the common characteristics that the vast majority of smartwatches have, not only those of Xiaomi, is that you can change the sphere to your device. In this case, some come preloaded, but the catalog as soon as it goes on the market is not negligible at all through the Xiaomi Wear app.

On the other hand, one of the curiosities that the Redmi Watch 2 Lite has is that it has a multitude of integrated applications , remember that they cannot be expanded or uninstalled. The only thing that can be customized on this device are the widgets that you access by sliding to the different sides.

Among the applications we find applications such as "Workout" that serves to monitor our sports activities, "Activity" to keep a record, the possibility of measuring heart rate, blood oxygen, atmospheric weather, being able to control music , among many other options. The ability to take pictures from the watch, for example, is in beta.

Remember that it is a smartwatch that is aimed at the general public, but takes great care of everything that has to do with sport, being able to record more than 100 different activities .

Autonomy of up to 10 days

In addition to the screen, another of the novelties that this Redmi Watch 2 Lite brings is the battery, which has grown just over 30 mAh , which in a device of such small dimensions can be key. It is true that this increase in battery is compensated by the increase in the screen and offers the same data as its predecessor. In the analysis we will see if it reaches this figure.

For the moment, what we can say is that as soon as we took it out of the box the charge was practically complete, although we decided to recharge it until the update was completed , to later begin the tests.

Will the 10 euros difference be worth it?

The price is another of the sections that has been increased in the Redmi Watch 2 Lite. Now, despite the fact that we need to test it thoroughly, this new generation has left us a very good taste in our mouths.

It has enough ballots to become the perfect smartwatch for those who are looking for something more than a Mi Band , in terms of screen, and who seek to have a complete device with an adjusted price.
