Analysis of POCO Watch by sections:
Almost a clone of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite apart from the on-screen improvements
I have to admit that I couldn’t help but feel when I got the POCO watch Déjà-vu For the incredible resemblance to the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, which we already tested a few months ago.
In fact, apart from its screen and some features added to this model, we can say that it is the same watch, at least as far as looks are concerned.
The POCO watch has committed to a rectangular design with smooth lines on the front Dimensions 39.1 x 34.4 x 9.98mm and alone 31 grams weight Included.
Worn on the wrist, this is an understated and lightweight sports watch that doesn’t stand out due to its size or slim design. It’s available in three finishes: blue, ivory and black (a fairly dark gray) that POCO sent us for this analysis.
Loss TPU band That’s exactly what we found in the Watch 2 Lite, and Contains the same patented anchor This forces you to use that particular model if you want to change it. In any case, the replacement will not be easy because the clamping mechanism is really tough.
The case is made of polycarbonate and draws a smooth curve on the back to make it more comfortable. to keep A single button right center Which is different from the box for the glossy finish.
The button has a brief press that allows it to stretch no more than is absolutely necessary, eliminating discomfort when bending the wrist or accidentally pressing during exercise.
on the back of the box we find Optical heart rate and SpO2 sensor With the same design as Redmi Watch 2 Lite. Just below that are the magnetic charging pins that it sticks to. Compact magnetic charger What we find in Redmi watches.
Near these pins we find a small hole that can mislead us and make us think that it is a microphone. POCO Watch does not include a microphone or speakers some.

Screen Responds well to touch but lacks a sense of urgency of high-end watches. Something similar happens with the transitions between screens. While they don’t offer any jerky or weird things, they don’t offer that organic page-turning feel.
Can be set up on POCO Watch 5 different dials, and a catalog of over a hundred free and paid themes accessible through the control application installed on the smartphone. In addition, some of these areas are interactive and clicking on an icon takes you to the relevant data.
Accuracy in the line of Xiaomi and Redmi integrated in a single app
If we don’t have too many innovations in design redmi and xiaomi watchesDon’t expect to find them in your operating system as they are practically the same thing.
This is RTOS, a Easy to use and fairly smooth operating system. Which is very restrictive when it comes to third-party apps, however, so the possibilities for expanding functions are very limited in contrast to Wear OS or Watch OS based watches.
In your download we have to say that POCO Watch is very well equipped in terms of monitoring and connectivity optionsAllows meeting the basic needs of athletes just starting out in an activity or people who simply want to shorten their day to motivate them to lead a more active life.
The POCO watch connects via the smartphone Bluetooth 5.0 So notifications and call notifications are synced but it is not possible to reply to them. Not even with predefined answers.
Loss POCO’s first sports watch It has an automatic activity detection feature, but unfortunately it’s not the fastest and most efficient as it doesn’t prompt anyone to start detailed monitoring even after ten or fifteen minutes of activity. Over 100 activity profiles,
Yes, it’s true they sound like a lot, but it actually takes a lot of currency as there are various activities listed as options like hiking, walking or hiking, basically and the terrain. Regardless, it’s the same activity.
we see good variety of activitiesBoth in team sports and indoor activities, as well as in indoor and outdoor activities such as swimming in open water or testing the R in a pool5 atm clock resistance,
I found it good that the data is displayed in real time while the sporting activity is being recorded, but that access is also possible controlling music playback on smartphone and other functions built into the watch. This may sound obvious, but this operating system does not allow this on all devices.
Regarding the accuracy of the data obtained, let’s just say that it is in line with what is obtained with other smartwatches in terms of distance and speed, but let’s not forget that we’re not dealing with a medical device. And so, value. They are only indicative.
A similar thing happens with recordings of vital signs such as heart rate or blood oxygen saturation, whereThe accuracy of the device is highly dependent on the watch being worn well and kept in the right place.Just above the carpal bone.
One of the positive points of this device is that Integrated GPS And it works reasonably well. At some points along the route it has deviated slightly from the trajectory marking a strange peak on the route, but in general it remains within acceptable parameters for one. Smartwatch under 70 euros,
The sleep monitor is quite accurate in tracking sleeping and waking time. With the right setting, you can know the different stages of sleep and add data such as heart rate or oxygen saturation to prevent apnea. Of course, this detailed monitoring will weigh heavily on your autonomy of use.
All information collected by POCO Watch is synced to the app i am physical Available for Android and iPhone phones, splitting the data into separate sections and charts to get a history of each parameter in days, weeks or months.
To counteract the slight secrecy of the operating system, My Fitness allows you to connect smartwatches to third-party apps like Strava Through the Connected Apps feature.
5 days of actual use with all your functions
we come to another The Key Points of the POCO Watch Reviewits autonomy. Was the promise to use POCO for 14 days really fulfilled? Based on our experience we can say yes, have reached 14 days of useBut at the cost of not using most of the watch’s features.
POCO watch holder a 225mAh batteryA little less than the mounting capacity of the Redmi Watch 2 Lite but with a very similar autonomy thanks to the energy savings of mounting an AMOLED screen compared to TFT.
In actual use, when you use most of the functions of this POCO watch and get notifications from some apps, The POCO watch gave us between 5 and 6 days of use,
The tasks that have the greatest impact on the battery are related to Continuous measurement of heart rate and oxygen saturation throughout the day, The more you separate these records, the less battery it consumes, but the less data you contribute to your daily history. In the end, the secret of everything lies in balance.
If the POCO Watch follows in the footsteps of its Redmi and Xiaomi cousins in almost all respects, it will be no different when it comes to battery charging when it comes to charging time. It recovered 50% of its capacity in 35 minutes while it took 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach 100%. It charges with the included magnetic USB charger.
The simple smartwatch that fulfills everything but doesn’t stand out in anything
As we will inform you in the meantime poco watch review, This is a watch that will not be remembered for its innovations in the field of smartwatches.
If Xiaomi had wanted, it could have called this model Redmi Watch 2 Pro or Xiaomi Mi Watch Pro and it would have been the same. It offers very distinctive features compared to only Xiaomi Already in your catalogue.
Most purists will tell me that evaluating it exclusively in the POCO catalog is correct, and in this context it is POCO’s first sports smartwatchIt’s like cheating solitaire.
don’t get me wrong because The POCO watch price of 69.99 euros is now available on its official storeThis seems like a better buy to me than the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, which is now around €54.48.
It has a better screen, slightly more accurate GPS, and better automatic activity detection, but that doesn’t mean it Xiaomi distributes its range of watches across the catalogs of its three brandsAnd the POCO Watch is the one with the best featuresYour quantifications are just above the bracelet.
