Xiaomi teased the Redmi Watch will launch in India on May 13 alongside the Redmi Note 10S. The Redmi smartwatch debuted in China in November last year. The watch has a square-shaped dial and offers up to 12 days of backup on a single charge, 24×7 heart rate monitoring.
On its official Twitter account, Redmi India has shared a teaser video to tease the launch of the Redmi Watch in the country. It gives us a glimpse of the smartwatch from one side and reveals its wrist strap.
It is still unclear whether Xiaomi has explicitly confirmed that the Redmi Watch will launch in India, but a listing found in the Bureau of Indian Standards site in January also confirmed the official approvals for the Mi Watch Lite, which is essentially rebranded Redmi Watch.
Redmi Watch price in India (expected)
There is still no word on the Redmi Watch price in India. It is likely that the Indian price will be the same as the Chinese model. In China, the smartwatch has been launched for 299 CNY (roughly 3,400 Rs.). It comes in Elegant Black, Ink Blue, and Ivory White colors. The strap colors include Cherry Blossom, Elegant Black, Ink Blue, and Ivory White.
