Xiaomi went to Bangkok, Thailand, and had its biggest launch in Southeast Asia. It introduced a bunch of Redmi devices, which include a new wearable, the Redmi Watch 4.

Announced to the global stage alongside the Redmi Note 13, 13 Pro, 13 Pro Plus, and the Redmi Buds 5 series, the Redmi Watch 4 is a premium-looking, feature-packed smartwatch that has a vibrant and smooth 1.97-inch LTPS AMOLED display with a smartphone-like 60Hz refresh rate and up to 600-nits of peak brightness. It also has an increased 26% display area.


It also boasts a fancy aluminum alloy frame — a first in the series. There’s also a robust stainless steel rotating crown that lets you navigate through the interface.

The Watch 4 also features a new quick-release strap. It looks clean and easy to strap on or off, but also means that, since it’s proprietary, your options are limited to what Xiaomi offers.


To take advantage of the fancy display, Xiaomi has prepared over 200 watch faces, most of which can be customized and have their Always-On Display (AOD) counterpart.

Another highlight here is the robust battery. Unlike similar watches that only last for a couple of days, this one can for for up to 20 days on typical use, 10 days with AOD on, and 30 days under long battery mode. This is all possible with a large battery module and 25% less power consumption.


Bluetooth phone calls are also supported, letting you answer and make the phone call right from the watch thanks to its built-in microphone and loudspeaker—no need to pull out your smartphone.

For health tracking, it has a PPG sensor configuration for smart sleep monitoring, blood oxygen saturation monitoring, heart rate sensor, and stress monitoring.


These sensors are used by the 150+ sports mode and, together with the independent GNSS chip, you can accurately track your running, walking, or biking routes. GNSS is said to be more accurate and reliable than GPS. Plus, the 5ATM water resistance lets you use the watch with 18 sports modes.

The watch pairs with your smartphone with the Mi Fitness app and with Strava and Apple Health support, which means it also works with iOS devices.


You can get the Xiaomi Watch 4 in the Philippines with an SRP of Php4,899 but is discounted to Php4,599 until January 22.
