Xiaomi announces three new watch S1 and Buds 3

Besides announcing the MIUI 13 and Xiaomi 12 series smartphones this week, Xiaomi also announced three new wearable devices, namely the Xiaomi Watch S1, Xiaomi Buds 3, and Xiaomi Buds 3 Pro in a new color.

One should not be confused with the similar-named Redmi buds and watches.

I won’t dwell on the specifications and highlights in this post as Xiaomi didn’t really detail it when they announced the devices as well.

Regardless, I will still do a highlight of the wearables when they do arrive in Malaysia, if I am made aware of its arrival.

Brief highlights

The Xiaomi Watch S1 is a stainless steel frame and sapphire glass leather wrist band.

It boast of a 1.43-inch large AMOLED touch display that does everything a smartwatch does, in addition to comprehensive health insights while supporting up to 117 fitness modes.

It has a 5ATM water resistance and 12 hours battery life on regular usage.

A single charge of the Xiaomi Buds 3 can juice the buds for 7 hours of music playback and 32 hours of total usage with case.

Last but not least Xiaomi also introduced a new colour for the Xiaomi Buds 3 Pro which will now come in blue. The Buds 3 Pro is a better version of the Buds earphone series.

Price and availability

All three items will only be available in Mainland China for now with the Xiaomi Watch S1 retailing from RMB 1,099 while Xiaomi Buds 3 retailing from RMB 449.

For new year, Xiaomi will be selling the Buds 3 Pro at RMB 649.
