Redmi Smart Band Pro and Redmi Watch 2 Lite have officially been launched globally, after a brief period of speculations, rumours, and leaks. The wearable will go on sale in Europe in the coming weeks. The Band Pro is the successor to the original Redmi Smart Band from last year, while the Redmi Watch 2 Lite is a watered-down version of the Redmi Watch 2, which was announced alongside the Redmi Note 11 series not too long ago in China. Both wearables come with a rectangular form factor, silicon straps, 110+ fitness modes, several watch faces, and more. Let’s take a quick look at the Redmi Smart Band Pro and Redmi Watch 2 Lite specifications and features:
Redmi Smart Band Pro specifications
Starting with the display, the Redmi Smart Band Pro features a 1.47-inch curved AMOLED touch display with a resolution of 194 x 368 pixels, a screen density of 282 PPI, 100 percent NTSC colour gamut, and up to 450 nits peak brightness. The Redmi Smart Band Pro has support for more than 50 band faces. Under the hood, the Redmi Smart Band Pro is powered by an Apollo 3.5 processor. The band supports Bluetooth 5.0 and can be paired with Android devices running Android 6.0 or later and with Apple devices booting iOS 10.0 or higher using the Xiaomi Wear/Xiaomi Wear Lite apps.
The Redmi Smart Band Pro comes with a 6-axis sensor, a 3-axis accelerometer, and a 3-axis gyroscope. The bands have a PPG heart rate sensor and a light sensor. There are more than 110 fitness modes to choose from, including 15 professional modes. The band supports automatic detection for outdoor running, outdoor walking, and treadmill. Furthermore, there’s 24-hour heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, sleep quality tracking, stress level monitoring, deep breathing exercise support, and menstrual cycle tracking. The Redmi Smart Band Pro also supports music control, weather forecast, notification alerts, DND, incoming call alerts, timer, alarm, and stopwatch.
A 200mAh battery keeps the lights of the Redmi Smart Band Pro on. The brand claims that the band can last up to 14 days on a single charge with typical usage and up to 20 days on a single charge while in power-saving mode. Lastly, the Redmi Smart Band Pro is 5ATM water-resistant.
Redmi Watch 2 Lite specifications
As the name suggests, the Redmi Watch 2 Lite is a toned-down variant of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, something which becomes evident when we look at the specifications. For starters, this one has a 1.55-inch TFT LCD panel with a resolution of 320 x 360 pixels, a step down from the AMOLED screen found on the Redmi Watch 2. Pairing options on the Redmi Watch 2 Lite are similar to the Redmi Smart Band Pro.
The Redmi Watch 2 Lite, just like the Redmi Smart Band Pro, features 110+ fitness modes but has 17 professional modes instead of 15 on the band. The watch is also 5AMP water-resistant. It has a 262mAh battery, which will help it last for up to 10 days under typical usage, up to 5 days with heavy usage, and 14 hours with continuous GPS mode.
The pricing of either of these devices is undisclosed as of now. However, the Redmi Smart Band Pro will come in Black colour and the Redmi Watch 2 Lite will be available in Ivory, Black and Blue colours with straps in matching Ivory, Black and Blue colours, as well as Pink, Olive, and Brown shades.
