The Redmi Watch 4, which debuted in China roughly a month ago, has now been made available internationally. Xiaomi has made the official unveil earlier today.
What’s new with the Redmi Watch 4?
The device is a step up from its predecessor. For starters, it boasts a much larger 1.97-inch AMOLED display, offering a resolution of 450 x 390 pixels. This is a noticeable improvement over the Redmi Watch 3’s 1.75-inch display. This enhancement provides a clearer and more vibrant visual experience.
In terms of design, the Redmi Watch 4 features a plastic back and an aluminum frame with a stainless finish. The combination gives it a sleek and modern look. Its water resistance rating of 5 ATM makes it suitable for swimming and other water-related activities.
As far as sensors, the device is equipped with a 4-channel PPG sensor, compass, gyro, accelerometer and SpO2, offering comprehensive health and fitness tracking. The heart rate sensor is a notable upgrade from the traditional single-channel sensors. This multi-channel approach allows for more accurate and reliable heart rate monitoring by capturing a broader range of cardiovascular data. This ensures users have a more accurate understanding of their heart health.
Another upgrade is in battery life. The Redmi Watch 4 houses a 470 mAh battery, promising up to 20 days of typical usage. With the always-on display this falls to 10 days. In long mode you can expect an impressive 30 days. This is a substantial improvement over the Redmi Watch 3’s 289 mAh battery, which offers up to 12 days of usage.
Connectivity is another area where the Redmi Watch 4 shines. The device supports Bluetooth 5.3 and offers NFC capabilities, depending on the market or region. This makes it more versatile and user-friendly, especially for those who rely on their wearable for seamless connectivity.
It is worth noting, in China Redmi Watch 4 operates on Xiaomi’s HyperOS. The software is known for its smooth, user-friendly interface. The operating system also integrates seamlessly with a wide range of apps and features, offering users a versatile and efficient platform. However, it appears the international edition does not run on HyperOS.
In the UK and Europe, Xiaomi prices the Redmi Watch 4 attractively at around £90 / €100. You will be able to purchase it from January 18th.
