Xiaomi held its big event where it introduced not only the revolutionary Mi Mix Fold 2 foldable but also the Watch S1 Pro smartwatch and Buds 4 Pro noise-cancelling headphones. As regards the Watch S1 Pro, it's a step up from last year's Watch S1, thanks to its premium design and extra thin bezels.

- The Redmi K50 Ultra or the Xiaomi 12T is equipped with SD 8G1 Plus and 108MP main camera.
Like the original Watch S1, the Watch S1 Pro has sapphire crystal on its top glass. Below it is a slightly larger 1.47-inch AMOLED screen that supports always-on function and up to 600 nits of brightness. This enables Xiaomi to reduce the bezels around the circular display making a larger dial at 46 mm. The watch itself is made from stainless steel and comes with a 5 ATM water resistance rating as well as a new digital crown paired on the right side.
Xiaomi's Mi Watch S1 Pro shares most of its health and fitness monitoring features with the recently launched Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro. Users can find 117 workout modes along with continuous heart rate, SpO2, sleep, and stress tracking. Surprisingly, a temperature sensor is also present. In terms of connectivity, there is also a built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, and NFC. The smartwatch uses a microphone and speaker to enable voice calling via Bluetooth 5.0.
Battery life on the smartwatch is rated for up to 14 days, which is slightly better than the 12-day on the cheaper model. The Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro is powered by a 12 nm processor and costs around $220 in China. There is no word yet if it will see a global release like the Watch S1.
