Mi Watch S1 Pro
Xiaomi has introduced a new version of the Xiaomi Mi Watch S1 Pro smart watch, which supports convenient communication through the popular WeChat messenger in China. Previously, a similar edition was released by Huawei for its Watch GT3 watch.
This version of Xiaomi Mi Watch S1 Pro supports quick voice and text responses, emoticons, as well as receiving picture messages and other functions. And you don’t need a smartphone to chat on WeChat.
The watch screen is a round 1.47-inch AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 480 x 480 pixels. There is also an Always On Display feature. The case is waterproof (up to 5 ATM), and the screen is covered with sapphire crystal. The 500 mAh battery in Watch S1 Pro will provide up to 14 days of standard use. A 10-minute charge will allow the watch to work for two days. The watch will be fully charged in approximately 85 minutes.
Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro is equipped with GPS and NFC modules, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi. The watch offers heart rate monitoring, a pulse oximeter, calories burned, steps taken, and a 24-hour stress monitor. The watch also received 117 different sports modes and the function of making voice calls via Bluetooth using a noise reduction algorithm during a call. The watch can also control devices at home, such as turning on the lights or changing the volume of the TV.
Xiaomi has confirmed the launch of the Watch S1 Pro, a more advanced version of the Watch S1 that the company already sells. Due for release later this week, the Watch S1 Pro will be a premium smartwatch with a few upgrades over the Watch S1, including what appears to be a digital crown. The Watch S1 Pro should launch in at least three versions too.
Instead, the Watch S1 Pro resembles a modified Watch S1. Specifically, Xiaomi has swapped the dual button array from the Watch S1 for what appears to be a digital crown and a button that sits nearly flush with the Watch S1 Pro’s body. In other words, Xiaomi has moved towards adopting Apple’s button layout, albeit with a round chassis design, rather than a squircle one. Potentially, the digital crown could be another button, although its toothed finish suggests that it is there for rotating, not pressing.
