Immediately before to the worldwide launch of the Xiaomi 12 series, Xiaomi made the announcement of its newest flagship wearables on stage. A sapphire glass screen and a stainless steel casing house the Xiaomi Watch S1, the brand’s most premium wristwatch to date. It has all the health and fitness monitoring capabilities you could desire from a Xiaomi smartwatch. However, the Buds 3T Pro are Xiaomi’s most expensive TWS ANC-equipped headphones, while the S1 Active is more robust and less expensive.
It’s worth noting that both the vanilla S1 and the Mi Band 3 have sapphire glass screens, but that’s just on the S1. The PPG heart rate sensor and the SpO2 reader are likewise shared by the two devices, which also monitor your sleep. Both are water-resistant to 5ATM, and fitness monitoring is available for over 117 different activities.
Bluetooth calls may also be made using the new watches’ dual-band GNSS positioning. NFC compatibility for contactless payments is also market-dependent. For up to 12 days on standby, both watches use 470mAh batteries.
The ANC on the Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro should block out up to 40 decibels of ambient noise around you. They make use of a three-mic setup, 10mm dual-magnet dynamic speakers, and the LHDC 4.0 standard, which allows for bitrates of up to 900 kbps. Additionally, they support the SBC and AAC codecs and multiple device pairing at the same time.
The earbuds are IP55 dust and water resistant and have a 6-hour battery life that can be extended to 24 hours with the included charging case. USB-C or any Qi charger may be used to power them. Both the earbuds and the carrying case have been tested to meet IP55 standards for water and dust resistance.
For $199, you’ll get the Xiaomi S1 Active, while the Buds 3T Pro and Watch S1 are both $269. Dates of availability are still pending confirmation.
