Xiaomi Watch S1 smartwatch goes official in China – Android Authority

After publishing several teasers, Xiaomi has now officially launched its new premium smartwatch. The Xiaomi Watch S1 joins the Xiaomi 12 series as the company’s pinnacle mobile device heading into 2022.

Xiaomi emphasizes the use of lofty materials on the Watch S1, from the sapphire glass display and calf-leather strap to the stainless steel body. Overall, it’s a pretty large smartwatch packing a 1.43-inch AMOLED display.

While the wearable is primarily geared towards business people, the Watch S1 supports 117 sports modes, with GNSS positioning for outdoor activity tracking. Xiaomi notes the watch packs 24/7 health management but doesn’t elaborate on the device’s sensors or monitoring smarts. Nevertheless, it features 5ATM water resistance for avid swimmers and 12-day battery life for road warriors. Wireless charging smarts add to the device’s convenience.
