The Redmi smartwatch will be launched in China on November 26 (Thursday). Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing shared this information via a post on the Chinese Weibo website Weibo. There are few details about the smartwatch, but it is believed to be the Mi Watch Lite brand that was discovered when it was launched on the FCC in the United States last month. The company will hold a press conference in China at 8 pm local time (5:30 pm U.S. standard time). Xiaomi will also release its new Redmi Note 9 series phones on November 26, possibly at the same event.
According to a poster shared by Weibng on Weibo, the Redmi smartwatch will be launched in China at 8pm local time (5:30pm US Standard Time). Details about the smart watch have not been revealed, but the poster shows a smart watch with a square dial. This Redmi smartwatch may be a rebranded version of Mi Watch Lite, which was found in the FCC list last month with model number REDMIWT02.
If the Mi Watch Lite brand is actually rebranded, then some of the specifications in the FCC list become clearer, because it shows a 1.41-inch high-definition color display, built-in GPS and 24-hour heart rate tracking. It also mentioned that the watch will be water resistant to 50 meters, with swimming stroke recognition, multiple fitness modes and automatic screen brightness adjustment. The FCC list also pointed out that the smart watch model REDMIWT02 will be equipped with a 230mAh battery.
According to reports, Mi Watch Lite was also found to have the same model UL (Demko) certification list. Smartwatch itself is a streamlined version of Mi Watch, launched in China in November, starting at 1,299 yuan (approximately Rs 14,300). It has a 1.78-inch AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, 1GB RAM and 570mAh battery.
