Xiaomi Watch S1: when being an athlete does not mean being elegant

The Chinese mobility giant has not been satisfied today with presenting its new Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro phones, and has taken the opportunity to also launch other devices such as its new smartwatch, the Xiaomi Watch S1.

This watch, with a circular design, opts for a more classic and elegant design, but be careful, because that does not prevent it from becoming an interesting ally for any of the 117 sports activities that supports —although we continue without paddle—.

Combining design and sport

Unlike other more casual and sporty watches such as the Xiaomi Mi Watch, this Xiaomi Watch S1 is a smartwatch with a design clearly intended for users who bet more on that more classic and elegant style that this product contributes.

The 1.43-inch screen has a remarkable diagonal, and on the right side we find two physical buttons to control the various functions.

In that design we can access leather or silicone (Viton) straps, which will differentiate the two variants (and prices) available. While the leather straps are leather and blue, the rubber strap is black and matches that black case also in that version.

In Xiaomi they have not given too many details yet about the specifications of a device that, yes, has support for 117 sports modes.

Among them are various aquatic modes thanks to its IP68 certification that guarantees that it is submersible and that therefore we can use it to swim.

Those responsible for Xiaomi have also indicated that it is possible make and receive calls directly from the watch thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity.

Autonomy is another of its outstanding sections: according to the manufacturer, the Xiaomi Watch S1 is able to function for 12 days with typical use, and up to 24 days in battery saver mode.
