Xiaomi introduces the Redmi Watch 2, a budget smartwatch with an AMOLED display, 12 days of battery life and a SpO2 sensor

Xiaomi has announced another Redmi product today, having already showcased the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus. The Redmi Watch 2 follows in the footsteps of the eponymous model that Xiaomi released nearly a year ago.

Unsurprisingly, the Redmi Watch 2 contains a few upgrades over its predecessor, including its new display. According to the company's marketing materials, it has equipped the Redmi Watch 2 with a 1.6-inch AMOLED display that supports over 100 pre-installed watch faces. In comparison, the Redmi Watch has a 1.4-inch display, and an IPS one at that.

Additionally, Xiaomi has included 117 exercise and sports modes, complemented by a built-in GPS module that supports location services like BeiDou, Galileo and GLONASS. Similarly, the Redmi Watch 2 has a SpO2 sensor for monitoring blood oxygen levels and a heart rate monitor that can keep track of you while exercising.

The Redmi Watch 2 even has NFC onboard for making contactless payments, although it remains to be seen if the smartwatch comes to other markets. Incidentally, Xiaomi claims that the Redmi Watch 2 should last up to 12 days between charges, presumably less if you use the GPS module for extended periods.

Xiaomi has confirmed that it will initially sell the Redmi Watch 2 for CNY 349 (~US$55). The smartwatch will eventually increase to CNY 399 (~US$62); it will be orderable in three colours at launch.
