In comparison, the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro launched at EUR 269 (approximately INR 24,000) for the Bluetooth version and EUR 329 (roughly INR 29,400) for the LTE version. It should be noted that these prices could be inflated since the Xiaomi Watch 2 has not been officially launched yet.

The report also details key specifications of the anticipated smartwatch, suggesting a 1.43-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels and an always-on display mode.

Moreover, it's rumoured to feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 chipset and could offer a battery life of up to 65 hours. The Xiaomi Watch 2 is expected to be 5ATM water-resistant and offer various health and fitness features including 150 sports modes, as well as sensors for sleep monitoring, SpO2, heart rate, and step counting.

The Xiaomi Watch 2 is said to run on Wear OS and include apps such as Google Wallet, Google Maps, Play Store, and more. It is anticipated to support Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi for connectivity, along with features like NFC, GPS, and GNSS sensors. The reported specifications are notably similar to those of the Pro model, with the main differences being the absence of an LTE variant and an aluminium body instead of stainless steel.
