Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro in for review

Xiaomi made the trek to Google’s Wear OS for the Watch 2 Pro and it makes for a solid smart wearable that’s ready to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Watch6 Classic. What’s more, Xiaomi’s watch is €270 for the Bluetooth model and €330 for an LTE-ready one – Samsung’s watch crosses the €400 mark.

You get the watch in either Black with a fluoroelastomer strap or silver with a leather strap and Xiaomi’s proprietary wireless charger.

Upfront the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro has your standard 1.43-inch 466x466px OLED display with as much as 600 nits. It’s packed into a 46mm casing. Xiaomi went with the newest, 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Plus chipset, which means the Watch 2 Pro should be good for a few OS updates. It also runs smooth and fast.

There’s a rotating crown flanked by two buttons on the right side of the watch. The crown is very smooth to turn and easy to get used to. A tap on it brings up the app’s grid and scrolling up and down moves the grid in accordance. It’s as good as navigating a watch can be, outside of Samsung’s rotating bezel.

Xiaomi packed the Watch 2 Pro with a skin temperature sensor, a body composition sensor that was so far only available on the Galaxy Watch series, and a dual-frequency GPS, more akin to more expensive Garmin watches.

Finally, the Watch 2 Pro packs a potent 495mAh battery – a whole 70mAh bigger than the Galaxy Watch6 Classic’s battery. Xiaomi says the Watch 2 Pro could do up to 65 hours on a single charge in Bluetooth-only mode, which is impressive for a Wear OS device. We’ll make sure to check that in our review, among various other aspects of its performance. Don’t go anywhere!
