One of the most prominent modern technology brands to come out in Pakistan in the last few years is Xiaomi. Originally a Chinese brand, Xiaomi is known for having very high-quality yet affordable personal tech like smartphones, watches, earbuds, and so on. With the advent of smartwatches, one of the best options right now is a Xiaomi smartwatch.
The sudden burst in popularity of smartwatch options in the market means that there are a myriad of different options, making it difficult to determine which one is the one you should buy. So we decided to write an article talking about one of the best, if not the best, options in the budget category.
In this article, we will tell you about a few of the options in Xiaomi’s lineup and why they are great options for you.
Xiaomi Smartwatch Price to Quality Ratio
The best thing about the Xiaomi brand of smartwatches is the fact that their watches are some of the best value-for-money products in the personal tech space. The quality of the product that you get and the number of features for how little you are paying are practically unheard of anywhere else in the tech space. The same goes for when you buy Xiaomi watch products.
So, with that in mind, here are a few of the best options in the smartwatch category that Xiaomi offers:
Redmi Watch 3
If you want to find a Xiaomi cheap smartwatch, maybe as a beginner-level watch or just something that doesn’t affect your bank balance that much, this is probably the best option for you. Redmi is a sub-brand of Xiaomi that specifically focuses on cheaper products that try to give you the best possible quality at that low price point.
While being on the lower end means that you are dependent on your phone for things like cellular or Wi-Fi-related functionality, this smartwatch easily fulfills most regular everyday smartwatch needs and usage.
The watch has the familiar unobtrusive rectangular watch design that has been well-established by Apple at this point, and the relatively tiny bezels and thin frame of the watch make for a comfortable wearing experience.
The watch is great for all the regular fitness tracking that you would want and expect. From heart rate and blood oxygen to multiple different sleep-tracking factors, the Redmi Watch 3 does a great job with them all. In addition to fitness, the built-in Bluetooth connection means that it takes just two taps to switch from answering calls from your phone to your watch.
Amazfit GTR 3 Pro
Now, let’s come to the higher end. You might be wondering what an Amazfit watch is doing on a list of Xiaomi watches. Well, the parent company of Amazfit, Huami Technology, holds a very close partnership with Xiaomi, which means that they basically work together when it comes to a lot of products, making their smartwatches practically interchangeable.
If you are looking for a powerful smartwatch that actually follows the design philosophy of Samsung Gear smart watches, then this is the right option for you. Rather than Apple Rectangles, here you will find a circular watch face that looks like an attractive traditional watch design. What’s more, you get it with a leather strap that accentuates the traditional feeling even more, making this watch one of the most attractive watch options on the market right now.
The stand-out feature in the GTR 3 Pro is the ability to get four of the most useful and regularly measured metrics all together with one single tap, including your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, stress level and breathing rate.
Another stand-out is the battery life. Even with all its power and bright AMOLED screen, you still get nearly two weeks of battery life with this watch, meaning you don’t have to deal with the hassle of taking it off and plugging it in every single night, like many other watches.
Xiaomi Smart Band 8
We thought we should include an option that is more of a pure fitness-focused Xiaomi smartwatch, as Fitness wearables form a huge chunk of the smartwatch user base.
Being a purely fitness-focused watch, this Xiaomi smartwatch has a longer, almost oval shape to tit that is particular to fitness-only watches. Along with this, the options for wristbands are almost endless, with even some options to use as a necklace.
The watch also comes from 5 atmospheric pressures of water resistance, which means that it will be completely fine even if you go swimming with it, let alone be covered in sweat.
As you can imagine, a fitness watch means that there is a lot of fitness tracking. Over 150 different workout modes, in fact, from running and cycling to even things you would not expect to be there, like flying a kite. The watch tracks and stores your data so that you can see your progress as you improve, making this watch a great option for any health and fitness nut.
Smart watches have gotten better and better over the years, and with their increasing usefulness, the demand and, subsequently the number of options has skyrocketed. With so many options, Xiaomi stands out as one of the best options in the budget category for a person to buy.
