The most powerful watch from Xiaomi to date
The Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro is a 46 mm watch with a circular case, analog in appearance, and very elegant. The case is made of stainless steel, while the bottom is made of ceramic. On the sides, we find the buttons, the rotating crown, and the microphone and speaker, which we will use to answer calls, for example.
Xiaomi has opted for a 1.47-inch AMOLED display with 480 x 480 pixels resolution, one of the highest we have seen to date and complemented by a maximum brightness of 600 nits. On paper, it is a screen that points ways.
Although not mentioned in the presentation of the same, the strap appears to have a standard 20 or 22-millimeter attachment, something that makes sense considering that the Watch S1 had a standard 22-millimeter attachment. In other words, it looks like the strap will be interchangeable without a problem.
Inside we find an undetermined 12-nanometer processor that gives life to MIUI Watch, the watch’s operating system. Among the benefits of the same is the compatibility with third-party applications. Among those mentioned are NetEase Music and Baidu Maps, striking in the case of the first is that you can stream music directly from the watch if you have it connected to WiFi.
Speaking of connectivity, the watch uses Bluetooth 5.2 to connect to iOS or Android, supports WiFi, and, at least in China, will have NFC. The watch, in addition, has a built-in dual-frequency GPS chip compatible with all major constellations (GPS, Galileo, Beidou, GLONASS, and QZSS). for the battery, 500 mAh promises up to 14 days of autonomy.
In terms of health and sports, the watch can monitor heart rate, SpO2, stress, body temperature, and sleep. It makes available to the user more than a hundred sports modes, including ten real-time voice-guided running modes.
