Redmi Watch 2 Lite Review
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite, Xiaomi’s most recent budget smartwatch, was introduced last week in India as the Redmi Watch’s replacement. This has a color LCD full-touch display, GPS support built in, more than 100 sports modes, controls for music, and other features. Here is my review after using the most recent smartwatch from Redmi for nearly a week.
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite is comfortable to wear and looks nice. It has a touchscreen that is rectangular and has a thin bezel. The absence of any branding or logos on the bezel gives the watch a clean appearance on the front. It is constructed to the same high standard as the majority of Xiaomi devices.
The watch as a whole is made of plastic, and thermoplastic is used to make the soft strap. It comes in a variety of colors, including Ivory Creme, Midnight Black, and Blue Dragon, and has an elegant appearance. It’s also easy to take the strap off and put it back on.
It feels very light on my wrist, weighing only 35 grams. Also, the watch is water-impervious to 5ATM, permitting you to utilize it while swimming. There is a solitary button on the right side that serves numerous capabilities and furthermore gives strategic input.
On the back, there is a heart rate monitor. It includes a green Drove on the back that lights up when your pulse is being estimated. When you use the watch to measure your SpO2, or blood oxygen levels, the LED will turn red.
Since it doesn’t uphold customary watch lashes, you should buy new watch ties just from Xiaomi. Aside from that, I have no concerns regarding its build quality or appearance.
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite games a 1.55-inch show with a goal of 320×360p. The screen has a peak brightness of 450 nits and a pixel density of 328 ppi. The image quality and viewing angles are both excellent. The substance on the screen of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite is distinguishable even in direct daylight.
The watch does not have an ambient light sensor, so you have to manually adjust the brightness of the screen. When you raise your arm, the display turns on, but it doesn’t happen as quickly as I’ve seen. Additionally, touch is responsive.
The watch’s durability is further improved by the 2.5D curved tempered glass that covers the display. I saw that the base bezel was to some degree thicker than the other bezels on the watch.
When you swipe from the top, you also have the option to change the notification shade. The notifications that are sent to your smartphone can be read or deleted, but you are unable to respond to them. There is a quick settings option accessible by swiping from the bottom. This has a toggle for DND mode, a raise-to-wake option, an alarm, a flashlight option that brightens the screen, a five-minute “keep the screen awake” option, and a settings option.
By pressing the function button, the smartwatch’s menu displays all of its options. This includes workout and sport modes, activity stats that show how much activity was done, calories burned, steps, and standing data for the data with detailed stats. There is pulse choice, SpO2 checking, rest information, stress information, breathing (1 to 5 minutes with slow, moderate and quick choice), feminine cycle following, Climate, Music control, camera control, Caution, stop watch, clock, compass, warning, track down telephone, spotlight and settings.
The Xiaomi Wear / Mi Fitness companion app is used by the Watch on Android and iOS. It has sections for Profile, Workouts, and Status. The steps, calories burned, most recent workout stats, data on sleep, heart rate, and standing details are displayed in the Status section. The workout options on the Workout tab include outdoor running, treadmill, walking, and outdoor cycling that can be started right from the app. In the My Profile section, you can change watch faces and settings as well as view the battery status.
Local faces are available, and there are more than 100 watch faces available online. It requires a couple of moments to download another watch face. A custom image, such as a slideshow, can also be set as the watch face.
