Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite, analysis: 10 days of use, 100 sports modes and plenty of reasons to enjoy it

Xiaomi has a multitude of devices in its portfolio. Smart watches are those devices that many users use in their day to day, but not all firms pay special attention to them. This time it is the turn of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite , the new little brother of the Mi Watch .

The Mi Watch Lite is the predecessor of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite , in fact, this is so noticeable in the design of the device, where we already anticipate that there are few differences between them.

A continuous design, but more careful

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

Although the design of its predecessor was not bad, the frames showed that it was not a last-batch device. This time it has tighter frames that, together with the black color of the screen and the spheres, offers a very successful effect in which they are hardly appreciated. Of course, if we put it against the light, a prominent lower frame is appreciated.

On the right side of the clock we find the power button , which also serves to access the menu where the different integrated applications of the system are located. On the other side of the button we find a completely smooth finish.

Turning the device over, we find several things . On the one hand, the device model is inscribed, while the different certifications that the product has obtained are housed in the lower part. These include the heart rate sensor , among many others, and the pins through which the watch is recharged.

One of the curiosities of this Redmi Watch 2 Lite is in the straps. These are interchangeable, but the hooking system is very different from other watches. In this case, to remove the strap it is necessary to press a button, which means that this connection does not generate slack, although it costs a little more than usual to exchange them.

The overall construction feels good despite being plastic, except for the display, whose glass appears to be quite sturdy and able to withstand bumps and scratches.

The screen, one of the keys of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

The screen of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite has a size of 1.55 inches in square format . It is tactile and is made of TFT technology . It shows bright colors and a resolution more than enough to be able to correctly see the information that is displayed both in the watch apps and in incoming notifications.

The brightness is not automatic and we believe that it is one of its greatest shortcomings, since it has five different levels and behaves in a very correct way, even when there is a lot of sun.

There is no possibility of having the screen constantly on as in other watches, something logical in this device given the technology in which the panel is manufactured. What it does allow is to keep the screen on for five minutes in a row.

The gyroscope is working properly and can be configured to make the screen not turn on when rotating the screen. What we did not like is that it does not respond to tactile touches and you have to press the button to turn on the screen , although it is nothing serious. The tactile response is fast and accurate.

A highly customizable operating system, but one that remains to be polished

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

The Redmi Watch 2 Lite does not offer the possibility of installing any type of additional app to the one that is already pre-installed on the device. In fact, system software updates are done through the smartphone.

Although the apps work well, sometimes the system has not responded as well as we expected . One of the most obvious optimization flaws is that which has to do with the size of the screen.

Sometimes, the information is displayed too high and through dragging down, one is able to regain control, although it is something that will probably be solved in future updates.

Except for that, it works correctly, and in the event that it is disconnected from the device, it reconnects very quickly and has not shown us any failures.

The interface is highly customizable , since you can modify the sphere, but also decide whether to view the menu with icons or, on the contrary, in a list format.

Remember that in this case we can be aware of the notifications and calls that reach the smartphone, but in no case will we be able to respond to them.

Xiaomi Wear, the control center

Xiaomi Wear

As we have mentioned, Xiaomi Wear is the app with which the Redmi Watch 2 Lite is synchronized . It can be downloaded from both Google Play and the App Store and has a very complete, simple and intuitive interface.

You have all the information at just a glance, in addition, it creates an avatar that offers you a different touch. From the app it is possible to start recording your sports activities , but also to know a summary of our day, from the hours we have slept to the calories burned.

It is also possible to change the watch face and browse through the more than 100 available faces , which are also being updated.

The settings are just one touch away and from that section you can configure the different permissions , since we remember that from the clock you can even take photos from a distance .

Many, but many, sports activities

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

It is a wearable that is perfect for the general public , but like others in the same price range, those who will like it the most are athletes, which is where it is most complete.

The great news of this Redmi Watch 2 Lite is that it incorporates GPS , a connectivity that is really useful to be able to record our routes and activities . In our tests, the Watch has taken GPS, but when synchronized with the smartphone, the route is quite exact, where the map has never finished loading.

Keep in mind that the GPS is responsible for recording the route making it obtain an exact measurement , seeing the map where you have carried out the activity is fine, although it is not a key function either, although everything indicates that it will be corrected over time.

Beyond GPS, this wearable is capable of recording more than 100 different activities . What we liked is that they are very accessible through the " Training " section, in addition, you can configure the clock so that if it detects activity between certain hours, it alerts you to start monitoring it.

Being waterproof, this device is compatible with the vast majority of water sports , although we must remember that they are not devices prepared to be used in places like the sea.

Good autonomy

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

The autonomy of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite has pleasantly surprised us. In normal use it has offered us approximately 10 days of use . When we have already made use of GPS at specific times, this data drops to 8 days. Finally, putting it to the limit, and making intensive use, it has offered us an autonomy of 5 days.

Recharging is done through the pins and is included in the box. It takes about two hours to recharge.

The evolution athletes expected

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite review

The Redmi Watch 2 Lite is really similar to its predecessor . It is a version that will make the most demanding athletes very happy, since sports are one of the sections that have benefited the most in this version, without forgetting the design, which has also improved.

It corresponds to a truly complete device that has everything to become one of the best-selling smartwatches.

It should be noted that, as with the previous version, it also does not include an NFC chip to make mobile payments. Even so, it maintains the essence of being " something more than a Mi Band ", without having to spend more money to get to the Mi Watch.

You can now get this Xiaomi Redmi Watch 2 Lite for only 59.99 euros .
