The POCO Watch is the first smartwatch of this well-known Xiaomi subsidiary brand that we all know for its smartphones with a great value for money.
The POCO Watch is no less than the other products of this brand, since we have very interesting hardware at a very low price with an Apple Watch-like design. The good-sized AMOLED screen is the star of this new smartwatch, an ideal panel to view it perfectly even outdoors. In addition, we also have an autonomous GPS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou) although its autonomy remains to be seen and if we can easily export what is recorded or allows its synchronization with other apps such as Strava.
The sports aspect is very careful, since we have options to monitor up to 100 physical activities that the POCO Watch is capable of automatically identifying

The POCO Watch screen is a 1.6-inch rectangular touch AMOLED with 2.5D curved glass, 320×360 pixel resolution and ambient light sensor.

The battery is 225 mAh, it recharges wirelessly with the included base, and it has an average duration of 14 days, giving it a normal use that will be greatly reduced using GPS.
