We already have for sale the recently presented Xiaomi Watch Color 2, a smartwatch that renews the original Xiaomi Mi Watch Color in multiple aspects.
At the aesthetic level, the basic design of the previous version is maintained, although with more discreet buttons, internally we see that now a blood oxygen sensor is added that we can have active 24 hours a day and no less than 117 sports modes with automatic recognition of some of them. The battery and the AMOLED screen increase slightly in size, although the latter also does so in its soft drink that now reaches 60 Hz and the entire smartwatch remains at 36.3 g in weight with the strap included.
Another option of Xiaomi smartwatch, although if we want to use it 100% we must wait for its western version, since for example in NFC it will not be enabled to make payments in Europe or EE.UU.
Specifications and Features
The screen of the Xiaomi Mi Watch Color 2 is a 1.43-inch circular AMOLED with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels and a body that resists pressures of up to 5ATM. It also includes Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, GPS + GLONASS and a 470 mAh battery with magnetic charge that gives us an autonomy of around 1 week and a half and up to 30 hours using the GPS that is not at all wrong.
Naturally it includes all kinds of sports functions as well as various sensors such as ambient light, heart rate, atmospheric pressure, accelerometer and gyroscope. The operating system will be Xiaomi’s own and the Xiaomi Wear app is used to configure it, where we have more than 200 spheres to customize it aesthetically.

They still all churn out these boring watches … I mean a round screen of 1.44 inches might look good but it’s really useless.
I have a Samsung Gear S and while the Tizen it came with is crap the rectangular curved screen is a beauty.
I someone makes something like that again and gives it some good software and battery life count me in but till then I’ll stick to my “dumb” solar Casio.
