In addition to the new folding phone, Xiaomi has also announced a new smartwatch at its Summer keynote. Yup. Again. The Xiaomi Watch Color 2 and Xiaomi Watch S1 are now joined by Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro, a premium smartwatch.

Aesthetically, the Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro smartwatch looks similar to the S1 but there are some subtle design tweaks which include a smart crown with CNC machined “pyramid” knurled side, a brushed stainless steel case, and a screw-less design

The Pro model has a larger, denser display with a narrower bezel and a larger capacity battery. Moreover, the Pro model has not one but two sapphire crystals; one protects the 1.47-inch narrow bezel AMOLED display of 480 x 480 pixels and 600 nit brightness, and another protects the optical sensor on the case back.

It is a tad smaller than the S1, having a 46 mm case diameter but it has a larger capacity battery, a 500 mAh item, that is good for up to 14 days long battery life and like its counterpart, it has wireless charging.
