Xiaomi held its last big event of 2022 in China yesterday, where it announced two new flagship phones and other smart devices. Among the new accessories announced is the company’s latest premium smartwatch. The new Watch S2 is the successor to the Watch S1 series. So, let’s get into the official specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Xiaomi Watch S2 smartwatch in Nepal.
Xiaomi Watch S2 smartwatch Overview:
New to the Xiaomi Watch S2 is the smaller 42mm variant with a 1.32-inch AMOLED screen. It now accompanies the 46mm variant with a 1.43-inch screen that the original Watch S1 introduced. The Watch S2 sports a stainless frame with two physical buttons on the right. The watch has a 5 ATM rating and thus can be taken underwater up to 5m depth.
Depending you can opt for either the standard silicone or the leather straps. The standard edition has an all-black body, while the leather option will get you a silver watch with a blue strap (46mm model) or a light gold watch with a matching strap (44mm model). Xiaomi also plans to make colorful silicone straps separately for users that don’t like the black strap on the standard edition.
Health and Fitness Tracking
Another highlight of the Xiaomi Watch S2 watch is the body composition measurement. With this, the watch can measure 8 health and fitness data in a few seconds. By placing two fingers on the side buttons, users can get data on complex parameters like body fat percentage, muscle mass, and protein volume.
If you are over the age of 18 years, it can also give you the skin temperature. But, the accuracy is highly reliant on the surface and duration of contact between the watch and skin.
That aside, you get all the usual health-tracking features like 24-hour heart rate, continuous blood oxygen (SpO2), advanced sleep evaluation, female health tracking, stress monitoring, and breathing exercises. Xiaomi Watch S2 has around 107 sports models, and it can automatically detect a few of them, like running, walking, rowing, and skipping.
The fitness data of the Xiaomi Watch S2 can be synced to your phone via a smartphone app. The watch has Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and is compatible with newer Android phones and iPhones. You also get a dedicated GPS chip to track your movement more accurately. If you get lost out in the wilderness, you can press the button thrice in quick succession to send your real-time location details to a predetermined list of trusted contact.
Watch S2 even has a set of speakers and microphones that you can use to take and make calls. It even has Xiaomi’s voice assistant in China, but it’s likely Xiaomi won’t include it in the global version when it goes out of China. Likewise, the watch even has NFC for wireless payment.
Battery and Charging
The battery endurance of the Xiaomi Watch S2 varies based on the model and the usage pattern. The 46mm model packs a 500mAh battery, which lasts up to 12 days on typical usage. Endurance takes a hit on the 42mm model since it houses a smaller 305mAh battery. As per the official listing, you can expect one week of battery life on normal usage.
