Xiaomi was able to slim down the bezels of the watch and to fit a larger screen – the Redmi Watch 2 boasts a 1.6” screen (up from 1.4”). Another upgrade is the switch to AMOLED (the old one had an IPS LCD). The screen became taller and its resolution is now 320 x 360 px.

Efficiency also improved, so now the watch can last 12 days on a single charge, the original model had to be put in power saving mode to go that long (according to the official numbers). As before, charging is done with a magnetic connector.

The watch is powered by the Apollo 3.5 chipset and supports 117 different sports modes, including swim tracking. The watch body is rated for 5 ATM (50m) of water resistance. Additionally, it comes with the usual sleep tracking and heart rate monitoring, now a blood-oxygen (SpO2) sensor.

For outdoor activities the Redmi Watch 2 supports four global positioning systems – GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou. Another connectivity feature is NFC.

Despite the larger display and improved battery, the watch itself is lighter – it is down four grams to 31g. Buyers can choose between 3 colors for the watch body and 6 colors for the TPU strap.

These cost just CNY 100 ($16/€14/₹1,200), basically half of what the Buds 3 Pro cost (or as global users may know them, the Air Dots 3 Pro). These feature a “cats ear” design, which is intended to make the buds sit more comfortably and more securely in your ears.

The Redmi Buds 3 Youth Edition promise 18 hours of battery life, not quite as impressive as the 28 hours advertised by the Pro model. They still charge over USB-C and come with Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, though no ANC. The buds have basic IP54 water resistance to protect them against rain and sweat.
