Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro: The Ultimate Smartwatch Experience

Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro is a comprehensive smartwatch that seamlessly integrates into the Google Wear OS ecosystem, offering access to a vast array of third-party applications. Available in both Bluetooth and LTE models, the latter allows users to make calls, send texts, and stay connected even when not paired with a smartphone.

Under the hood, the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5 + Gen 1 wearable platform, accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It offers dual-band GNSS positioning, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC connectivity. With a 5ATM water resistance rating and a weight of 54.5 grams (excluding the strap), this watch is ready for any adventure.


Health and fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the 24/7 heart rate and blood oxygen tracking, as well as sleep and stress monitoring features. The watch supports over 150 sports modes and includes a Bioelectrical impedance sensor for tracking body composition metrics like body fat percentage and muscle mass.

Battery life is impressive, with the Bluetooth-only model offering up to 65 hours of usage, while the LTE variant delivers 55 hours. Charging is a breeze with the proprietary two-pin magnetic charger.

Pricing for the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro starts at €270 for the Bluetooth-only model and €330 for the LTE version.

Smart Band 8: Your Stylish Fitness Companion

The Smart Band 8, also known as the Mi Band 8, made its debut in China earlier this year and is now going global. It features a sleek 1.62-inch AMOLED pill-shaped display with a resolution of 490 x 192 pixels. The Always on Display feature and 600 nits peak brightness ensure clear visibility in various lighting conditions.

This fitness tracker continues Xiaomi’s commitment to health and fitness tracking, offering interactive fitness courses that utilize the accelerometer to monitor movements in real time.

Xiaomi is also emphasizing style with the Band 8, providing multiple official strap options crafted from materials such as leather, nylon fabric, and metal, catering to diverse fashion preferences. For advanced tracking and posture monitoring, Xiaomi offers a pendant accessory and a shoe clip.

With a remarkable battery life of up to 16 days under typical use and 6 days with Always on Display mode enabled, the Band 8 is a reliable companion for your fitness journey. Charging is quick, taking just one hour with the proprietary two-pin charger.
