Just yesterday, we saw how the market-leading Chinese company said goodbye to the year with the presentation of its new family of top-of-the-range smartphones, with the Xiaomi 12 and the latest version of its MIUI 13 operating system. However, these were not the only protagonists of your event, with the presentation of two innovative accessories: the Xiami Buds 3 headphones and the Xiaomi Watch S1 smartwatch.
Starting with the wearable, we find a classic-looking watch with a 1.43-inch round AMOLED touchscreen with a stainless steel frame, a sapphire crystal, and a comfortable leather strap. All this is accompanied by a battery that, according to the company, will offer us up to 12 days of regular use or 24 days in standby mode with a single charge.
Although undoubtedly the most remarkable aspect of the Watch S1 is that, like other Xiaomi smartwatches, it does not have Google’s operating system.
As for the headphones, curiously, the new Buds 3 behind the presentation of the Buds 3 Pro presented last September. However, while these headphones forgo this last name, they are given as a clear improvement over their predecessors, equipping dual magnetic dynamic drivers to deliver high-fidelity audio, ideal for both content playback and calls.
And, according to the brand, these speakers are capable of offering us noise cancellation up to 40 dB, with three active noise cancellation modes configured for different scenarios and day-to-day needs. Thus, the company has also announced that the headphones will have an autonomy of up to 7 hours of music playback with a single charge, which can reach 32 hours of total use thanks to the additional expense of its case.
Thus, following the usual Xiaomi trend, both devices arrive at relatively affordable prices. Released for the moment only in China, the Xiaomi Watch S1 will be available at the cost of 1,099 yuan ( approximately 172.91 dollars to change ), while the Xiaomi Buds 3 barely reach 449 yuan (about 70 dollars).
Unfortunately, their prices or dates of availability for the rest of the markets have not been disclosed.
