Just before the end of the year, Xiaomi released Watch S1 and Xiaomi Buds 3 alongside the Xiaomi 12 series and MIUI 13. The Xiaomi Watch S1 is the most premium smartwatch of the company to date, and the Xiaomi Buds 3 are its truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds.
The new wearable from the house of Chinese tech major was long hinted at, and even before the launch, we knew much of what to expect. However, now that the things are official, we know for a fact how the new Xiaomi smartwatch and TWS 3 earphone looks and what they promises to offer in terms of quality and functionality. Let’s check out:
Xiaomi Watch S1 Specifications

The smartwatch has health-monitoring sensors like blood oxygen and heart rate sensors, as well as a sleep-tracking feature. It is compatible with devices running on at least Android 6.0 or iOS 10.0 and is bundled with 117 sports modes. It also sports a 5ATM waterproof build.
The Xiaomi Watch S1 can be used for navigating notifications and messages when paired with a compatible mobile phone. It also includes a microphone and speaker that help users to attend voice calls from their wrist, without requiring them to take out their connected smartphone from pocket.
