Like every year, a new offshoot of the Mi Band series awaits us in 2022. The first (possible) details about Xiaomi’s Mi Band 7 have now surfaced. These include an enlarged screen and battery, an always-on display, a smart alarm clock, and possibly even GPS.
Besides the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro, the manufacturer has also unveiled another wearable for the coming year. The Xiaomi Watch S1 succeeds the Xiaomi Watch, although it is more elegant than the new Xiaomi Color Watch 2. Is it a “real” smartwatch?
The manufacturer finally continued the popular wearables last year with the Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2, and now the third iteration follows. This generation starts with three models: Amazfit GTS 3, GTR 3 and Amazfit GTR 3 Pro. But what are the differences between the GTR 3 and GTR 3 Pro?
The manufacturer scored a coup with the first Amazfit GTS, and the visual proximity to the Apple Watch has caught on with the mainstream. So much so that smaller Chinese manufacturers have stolen the product name. Now the third generation has been presented. But isn’t the Amazfit GTS 3 even a step backwards?
One of the most popular features of wearables is contactless payment. This is usually reserved for more expensive smartwatches, but will soon be available for the Mi Band thanks to Mastercard Pay. Xiaomi wants to make contactless payment even more affordable and introduces the Xiaomi NFC Mi Pay Strap – a watchband with NFC.
After a good 2.5 years, the TicWatch E3 is the latest addition to Mobvoi’s “budget” series and wants to convince with many features for “only” $200. After the TicWatch Pro 3, the E3 is only the second Wear OS watch that uses the current Snapdragon 4100 chip and is therefore one of the few smartwatches that can get the upcoming Wear OS 3 update.
Apparently, Amazfit got the first Amazfit GTS so out of hand that they now want to make the successor as broad as possible. Besides the Amazfit GTS 2 and the Amazfit GTS 2e, the manufacturer has also released the Amazfit GTS 2 Mini. The GTS 2 Mini is not only smaller, but even does some things a bit better than its big brothers.
It took a long time for Xiaomi to launch its first smartwatches in Europe. Besides the Mi Watch Lite, the manufacturer also releases the Xiaomi Mi Watch, but it is not a WearOS smartwatch. Instead, it has its own operating system, over 100 sports modes and Alexa integration. Is this the time for Xiaomi smartwatches?
It took a long time, but smartwatches are now part of Xiaomi’s extensive portfolio. Released in China as the Redmi Watch smartwatch, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite smartwatch is already available for around $60. Compared to its competition, the Mi Watch Lite brings an important advantage. But can Xiaomi make smartwatches at all?
Redmi, the “daughter brand” of Xiaomi, is best known for the smartphones of the Redmi Note series. After the Redmi Band, they are now expanding their wearable portfolio with the first smartwatch of their own, which has only been unveiled in China so far.
In the fitness tracker segment for around $40, the Mi Band has been stealing the spotlight from the competition for several generations now. But the Honor Band has always been very strong and the Honor Band 6 finally gets a redesign, which makes it much more modern. So far it has only been presented in China.
Following the Huami Amazfit Neo, wearable manufacturer Amazfit is releasing another inexpensive Smartwatch and is expanding its popular Bip range. Judging by the first pictures, the Huami Amazfit Bip U could almost be called Amazfit GTS Lite.
Shortly after the news about the renaming of the Amazfit app to Zepp, a new Smartwatch of the Amazfit brand appears. The Huami Amazfit Neo is fully committed to retro design without sacrificing any smart features.
