Redmi recently introduced its smart watch redmi watch 2 and a few days later the model Redmi Watch 2 Lite intended for the global market. At first glance, this is an identical watch, but this is not the case.
Differences will be found
A pair of smart watches looks almost identical. The European Redmi Watch 2 Lite is 0,3 mm wider, 0,2 mm thinner and 4 grams heavier.
A slightly heavier weight of 35 grams probably results in the use of a slightly larger battery. The global model has a capacity of 262 mAh and the Chinese variant 230 mAh.
Despite the lower capacity, the Chinese model lasts two days longer, which means it can work for 12 days on a single charge, compared to ten in the case of the Lite model.
You would look in vain for AMOLED in the Lite version
We also know what is behind the longer life of the Chinese version. It uses a 1,6-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 320 x 360 pixels. The AMOLED panel is less energy-intensive for the battery, but at the same time it has richer and more beautiful colors and, last but not least, it also excels in providing black.
The Lite model only has a 1,55-inch LCD panel. It's a pity that Redmi didn't put the AMOLED display in this version as well. The display was one of the weaknesses as well previous generation.
A slightly smaller diagonal may mean that the frames will be a bit more massive, but it will not be extra visible, as this is a minimal difference.
Both models contain the same sensors to measure heart rate, oxygen saturation and GPS. The global version may be missing automatic activity detection. It also does not contain an NFC chip, which in the Chinese version is intended for contactless payment.
Which model pays off more?
According to paper specifications, the Redmi Watch 2 is slightly better than the Lite version. It is a pity that Redmi did not bring the same model to the global market. The biggest stumbling block in the Lite model may be the absence of an AMOLED display.
The price of the Chinese version is 399 yuan, which is about 54 euros. The price of the global version has not been announced yet and we expect it in the coming weeks.

Without NFC and payment options it doesn't make sense, it's clear…
