    The Poco Watch is happening and that too in the way we all expected! Ever since its revival in 2020 as an independent entity, Poco has been milking Redmi’s R&D to facilitate its cash registers. Almost all of Poco’s products are essentially Redmi products underneath, except for a few cosmetic changes, and way more tempting prices. Hence, when you hear about a Poco Watch, you immediately start looking at Redmi’s wearable lineup. And Poco has done it, although with a twist of its own.

    Because if you look at the leaked renders of the Poco Watch, the first words that come to the tongue are “Redmi Watch 2 Lite”. There is no other way to put this but the Poco Watch looks exactly the same as the Redmi version. It even has a similar watch face for its main face. There’s no crazy Poco cosmetic change visible as well. But don’t be disappointed as the spec sheet could entice a few.

    Poco Watch leak reveals a twist

    Even though the Poco Watch resembles the Redmi Watch 2 Lite, Poco seems to be bringing one upgrade to justify its existence. Based on the leaked info from OnLeaks and Digit, it is said that the Poco Watch will get a 1.6-inch AMOLED display instead of using the LCD display from the Redmi version. This display will have a resolution of 360 x 320 pixels. The watch is also said to feature the usual monitoring stuff such as heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen saturation reading, and more sports mode tracking. It will even have a similar 225mAh battery.

    When launched, we expect this to go against the Dizo Watch R, which is currently among the cheapest watches with an AMOLED display.

    But that is not all. Poco will launch its Poco Buds Pro at the veent and it will doing a special edition version as well. In fact, it will be called the Poco Buds Pro Genshin Impact Edition TWS earphones. Phew, that is a mouthful.

    In typical Poco fashion though, the earbuds wear a fancy colour scheme, with red and gold accents all around. These earbuds will feature 35db ANC and even bring in a transparency mode. Poco will promise up to 28 hours of battery life and surprisingly, the case supports wireless charging.

    All that remains to be seen is whether and when Poco brings all of this to our Indian shores. With its usual aggressive pricing, these Poco accessories could be a gamechanger in this space.
