Positioned at the entry level, Poco’s first connected watch has compelling arguments such as a 1.6-inch OLED screen as well as the native integration of a GPS chip.
Poco has just introduced its first smartwatch along with the Poco F4 GT. and new headphones for Genshin Impact fans.
The game of the few differences
At first glance, one might think that it is a model very close to the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, but its technical specifications differ on many points, starting with the presence of a 1.6-inch Amoled screen on this watch, where its colleague was happy with a TFT LCD screen. The screen is also composed with a definition of 320 x 360 pixels, for a pixel rate per inch of 301, compared to 311 on the Redmi Watch 2 Lite.
For the rest, its design is also a bit different, with a slightly smaller and lighter Poco Watch (39.1 x 34.4 x 9.98 mm for 31 grams with the bracelet). It also benefits from 5 ATM dust and water resistance, which means it can be submerged up to 50 meters deep for up to 10 minutes.
An integrated GPS and the usual sensors
Like the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, the Poco Watch is committed to integrating a GPS chip that, if it works correctly, allows you to do without your phone to follow your sports route.
Speaking of sports, the watch supports 100 fitness modes and takes advantage of the classic sensor gallery: optical heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope and electronic compass. It can also measure SpO².
The Chinese firm promises up to fourteen days of autonomy on its device, thanks to a 225 mAh battery. To recharge it, a magnetic charger is provided in the box.
