Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro in for review

Xiaomi has embarked on Google’s Wear OS for the Watch 2 Pro and it’s a solid smart wearable that’s set to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Watch6 Classic. What’s more, Xiaomi’s watch costs €270 for the Bluetooth model and €330 for an LTE-ready one – Samsung’s watch costs more than €400.

You’ll get the watch in silver with a black or leather strap, along with a fluoroelastomer strap and Xiaomi’s proprietary wireless charger.

On the front the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro has your standard 1.43-inch 466x466px OLED display with as much as 600 nits. It is packed in a 46 mm casing. Xiaomi brought the new, 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Plus chipset, which means the Watch 2 Pro should be good for a few OS updates. It runs smoothly and quickly.

The crown is rotated by two buttons on the right side of the watch. The crown is very smooth to turn and easy to get used to. A tap on it brings up the app’s grid and scrolling up and down moves the grid accordingly. It’s as good as navigating a watch outside of Samsung’s rotating bezel.

The Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro packs a skin temperature sensor, a body composition sensor that was only available on the Galaxy Watch series until now, and a dual-frequency GPS like the more expensive Garmin watches.

Finally, the Watch 2 Pro packs a powerful 495mAh battery – a full 70mAh larger than the Galaxy Watch6 Classic’s battery. Xiaomi says the Watch 2 Pro can last up to 65 hours on a single charge in Bluetooth-only mode, which is impressive for a Wear OS device. We will make sure to check this in our review among other aspects of its performance. Don’t go anywhere!
