Redmi Watch 2 Lite review: Budget smartwatch punches above its weight


Redmi Watch 2 Lite is a cheap smartwatch that promises to squeeze above its budget price tag. 

Redmi Watch 2 Lite review: Budget smartwatch punches above its weight


The Xiaomi-owned company launched the first-generation Redmi Watch in the first half of 2021 

and its parent company rattled off the very analog-looking Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite, which we reviewed before this time, just a few months later. 
 

The Watch 2 offers a square smartwatch display that works with iPhones and Android phones

offering features like color display, relentless heart rate and SpO2 monitoring, established GPS, 24/7 fitness shadows and more than a week of battery life. 

 
It's priced at a very affordable £59.99 in the UK, but there are no details of the US price and vacuity just yet.


That works out to about $80 and puts it into the price range of smartwatches like the TicWatch GTH and amazfit Bip U Pro


winners of the Stylish Affordable Smartwatch award at the 2021 Wareable Tech Awards. 

 
The more affordable end of smartwatch demand is more competitive than ever with Amazfit, Xiaomi, Realme, Mobvoi and indeed Huawei trying to offer stylish options for under £100/$100. 

 
We've put the Redmi Watch 2 Lite through its steps to see if this is a cheap smartwatch worth considering. Then was our full verdict.

Redmi Watch 2 Lite Design and screen 

Redmi Watch 2 Lite review: Budget smartwatch punches above its weight



We've shown it before, but the Redmi Watch 2 Lite looks very similar to the Xiaomi Watch Lite

with an analog-sized square watch box, and a touchscreen that at first, feels identical. 
 

Once you spend a little more time with it, you can really appreciate that there are some differences later between Xiaomi 

and the redmi smartwatch that actually for us makes the Watch 2 Lite more fun on the eyes and to live with. 
 

You get a 41 mm matte finished plastic case that you can take in black, ivory or blue. 


It partnered with the TPU swatch, which has a smooth finish, and has been convenient to wear day and night and during workouts. 
 

It's a watch that carries a standing water-resistant 5ATM, which means you can swim and rain with it, although it shouldn't be in hot showers according to Xiaomi. 
 

There's only a solitary physical button side of the case to turn up and turn off the touchscreen

but it's not the sharp AMOLED bones you'll find in a smartwatch. It is a 1.5-inch, 320x360 TFT display

which is actually larger and offers advanced resolution compared to the Xiaomi Watch Lite.

You obviously don't get those old blacks and rich colors you'll find on AMOLED, but the colors are obviously not horribly washed

the black bezels around the screen are well retired and it's actually a suddenly nice look to consider.
 

When you tap and swipe that screen, the response is fine, but there's some lagginess when scrolling through your defenses and announcement passes. 


It's not the worst we've ever seen at this price, but it's definitely not a smooth calorie experience. 
 

It's a smartwatch that's neat and tidy in appearance. Most importantly it doesn't feel cheap, the screen is of good quality

and it's one that you should be perfect for wearing 24/7 indoors and outside no matter. 
 

Redmi Watch 2 Lite Smartwatch Features

Unlike some budget smartwatches, the Watch 2 Lite does work with iOS and Android biases and our experience is spent mostly with the best.
 

You need to download the Xiaomi Wear app or Wear Lite app for iOS dope, which still feels a little indistingt in places when it comes to donations

but it's easy to pay attention to your fitness and health statistics, track out-of-door workouts, and play around with the watch settings. 
 

Once you've set up, which is a good commodity and easy to do, it's worth heading to this app

especially if you want to make sure features like incoming call announcements and alerts are enabled as well as some of the more advanced health monitoring features. 
 

This is also where you can choose the face of a new watch. There are only four preloaded to the watch, but there is a large collection available for download through the app. 
 

It's a collection of powerful watch faces as well, but we guess the face of a digital-style watch feels like it fits stylishly back then. 
 

On the watch, you can swipe down from the main watch screen to see new announcements and you can easily see where the announcements are coming from. 
 

You can't act on them, but we'll definitely say announcements are well optimized to the screen and handled much better than other budget smartwatches. 
 

Megahit that physical button and you chuckle to the main app screen where you can see new features like rainfall updates

music playback controls, timekeepers, remote smartphone camera shutter control and the ability to set controls. 
 

We planted the most useful music playback controls and rainfall updates from smartwatch features beyond announcements. 


While you didn't get the richest smartwatch experience back then, what you got really well. 
 

A UI based on personal software is easy to overcome, so living with it is not the right time. You have to live with the slow

slightly slow moments that roll through the defense, but these are cheap smartwatches that perform solidly in this department. 
 

Redmi Watch 2 Lite Sports and fitness tracking

 
Redmi Watch 2 Lite review: Budget smartwatch punches above its weight

In that small square body, Redmi packs in a fair quantum and proves that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get some great health, fitness, and tracking sports features.
 

We'll start with the fact that you get an optical heart rate detector to continuously measure heart rate day and night, measure during exercise and that gives strength to the stress tracking as well. 


Now there is the addition of non-stop blood oxygen monitoring and it will track the path and sleep automatically as well. 


You also get guided breathing exercises and feminine health looms later as well. 
 

For tracking exercises, there is access to over 100 drill modes and that includes core sports like running

cycling and swimming in the pool along with inner conditioning such as rowing, HIIT and skipping.

For tracking outside the door, Redmi includes support for gps, Glonass, Galileo and BDS satellite systems to improve the tracking delicacy for running and off-door lifts. 


We should also add that while the data is mainly located within the Xiaomi Wear app, it is compatible with Strava as well, which is great to look at. 
 

So how well does the Watch 2 Lite perform? Well, we'll say it's actually not that bad overall, but if you want the ultimate delicacy on all fronts, generally, you won't get it. 
 

For the exertion tracking, there's a watch face plenitude to show off diurnal advances for step count 

and calorie burning with the invention of a devoted watch that looks like a half-sliced Apple Ring to pay attention on the road and diurnal exertion statistics.


We plant the number of diurnal steps in general to be in 500 tracking ways on the Fitbit Charge 5 and you get regular inactivity alerts during the day to keep you moving.

Switching to sleep and along with a dedicated app to see the latest sleep statistics

the companion app will show the stage and duration of sleep along with the average heart rate and blood oxygen. 


To get the most advanced sleep-tracking experience, which includes tracking REM sleep, that requirement must be enabled in the app first. 
 

We planted a little sleep tracking data mixed bag. It tends to record more than an hour of further sleep time compared to the Fitbit Charge 5 and Whoop4.0

although data such as sleep heart rate and blood oxygen size feel very reliable. 


The data is not seen meeting in the app, but the data is quite accurate, although there are many practical perceptions that are very useful.

Sleeping heart rate compared to Redmi Watch 2 Lite (left) and Fitbit Charge 5 (right) 
 

While a sleeping heart rate is impressed, daytime heart rate monitoring sounds a little more unreliable

marking us in general with a sleeping heart rate 10 bpm above normal.  You also get stress data, backed up by measures of heart rate variability

which suggest there aren't many stress corridors of our time, but don't offer a very useful perception around why it masks your stress. 

 
Flipping the effect into the tracking of the sport and we've run out, taken it to the pool and used it for an inside rowing session and planting the Watch 2 did unexpectedly well.

GPS tracking compared Redmi Watch 2 Lite ( left) and Garmin Enduro ( right) 

 
As a running watch, you can set alerts based on time and distance and set pretensions based on time, calories, and distance. 


After the 3-alternative opening you can scroll to see information such as speed, average speed, heart rate, steps, meters and data from previous kilometers. 

 
On the way, apart from the system's satellite support, it's still a little off at shadow distance, but it's not terrible

but it certainly notes we're going at a slower pace compared to the Garmin Enduro. 


Total total analog calorie burning summation in our comparison test. Digging out the heartbeat, and for a steady run


it holds up pretty well against the Garmin HRM-Pro coffin swatch examiner. 


Take its intensity, and like many optical detectors, it struggles to keep up with the coffin swatch examiner. Plus, you don't have the ability to pair it with an external detector to fix it.

HR tracking compared Redmi Watch 2 Lite ( left) and Garmin HRM-Pro casket swatch examiner ( right) 

 
In the pool, he noted the sum of analog distance tracking compared to accurate syncope tracking on the Smart Syncope Finish glasses

but again noted we achieved a slower average speed. It directly recognizes the type of syncope stroke and the number of lengths 

and you can get new statistics for stroke and SWOLF rates within the companion application.

Pool swim tracking compares Redmi Watch 2 Lite (left) and Finish Smart Goggles (right) 

 
The experience of using it in the pool is also good. When you start tracking sessions, the screen will lock and still keep an eye on the amount of length and speed. 


Unlike many smartwatches as well, if you accidentally record a session, it won't be worth keeping it.
 

Tracking for inner exercises works well as well overall, letting you see new criteria for conditioning like rowing and skipping. 


You can indeed rest to rest and set the interval along with seeing a stroke and jump count. 

 
We would absolutely say that the sports tracking and fitness tracking in the Watch 2 Lite beat some valuable watches in a variety of felicitations for core data trust. 


It's definitely not without its faults, such as tracking heart rate at high intensity and it's a shame there's no further practical perception around your data. 

 
Given what you paid for back then, the Redmi Watch 2 Lite really did a solid job. 

 

Redmi Watch 2 Lite Battery life 

The Redmi Watch 2 Lite packs a 262mAh battery, which Redmi says is capable of keeping you with up to 10 days of battery life in typical operating mode 

and defines typical operation as a slice of heart rate data in 30-nanosecond intervals, disabling advanced sleep monitoring, daily stress monitoring and just 35 bins of GPS usage in a week. 

 
In heavier use, the Watch 2 Lite will last for more than 5 days. Our testing time definitely veered more on the heavy side and we would say the battery claims were accurate.
 
 
With activated announcements, relentless heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring and using GPS to track 30 twinkle to an hour-long workout

we saw a drop of about 20 a day. Using GPS to track more than an hour of battery aphorism running down to just under 10, which isn't too bad a show for a budget smartwatch.


This is a smartwatch that can obviously give you a week between charges, which is the minimum we estimate at this price point. 


However, this watch shows that it has solid stamina, if you are not fussy about having the features of relentlessly activated health monitoring or the richest shadow of sleep.

Redmi Watch 2 Lite
By Redmi
Redmi Watch 2 Lite is a budget smartwatch that belies its price. It looks good, has a nice and colorful screen and most of the features in it work well. Smartwatch features are basic, but they work. The surprising array of sports tracking and fitness features perform well as well, making it a powerful alternative to other big budget watches in this price range such as the Amazfit Bip U Pro. We would also say it is a better choice than Xiaomi's own Mi Watch Lite and TicWatch GTH for design and performance.
