Redmi Watch GPS Ivory.First of all, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 is an excellent budget smartphone which provides a lot of features for its price. I wrote an article about it here, if you are interested. Now lets take a look at the smartwatch counterpart to this device. At first, it seemed there were not any news about updates to this device, but a few weeks ago a brand new version of this watch appeared on Tmall, Xiaomi’s Chinese online shop. To my surprise, this smartwatch actually has GPS. And not only that: heartrate sensor and NFC! Even though I bought the previous generation (without any additional sensors) since it was only $60 cheaper than the newer edition.
The GPS Ivory has a very sleek and classy design. It comes in 3 colors: black, silver and rose gold. I got the black version and I really like the look of it. It is not too big or too small, just the right size in my opinion. The strap looks and feels high quality and seems like it will last for a long time.
The watch has a lot of features, some of which I have not seen in any other smartwatch. First of all, the GPS. This is really cool, because it means you can use the watch to track your location without having to bring your phone with you. The heartrate sensor is also a great addition, especially for people who are into sports. Another great function of this watch is the NFC support, so you can easily make transactions by just swiping your wrist near a payment terminal.
The watch is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. I have an iPhone 6s and it works perfectly with the watch. I have not tried it with an Android device, but I imagine it would also work fine.
According to Xiaomi, the battery should last up to 20 days on a single charge. This seems a bit exaggerated to me, but I have not tested it yet. My old watch (without any extra sensors) lasts about 3-4 days on a single charge, so I would expect the GPS Ivory to last at least 5-6 days.
Overall, I am very happy with this smartwatch. It has many features that other watches do not have, such as GPS and heartrate sensor. The design is also very sleek and classy. The only thing I am not sure about is the battery life. I will have to test it more to see if it really lasts up to 20 days. But so far, I am very impressed!Redmi Watch GPS Ivory
