OUR OPINION

WE LOVE

The huge screen for a bracelet

Excellent autonomy, around 15 days

The design is quite massive, but neat and light

The 150 “Sport” modes

The numerous data collected

Integrated GPS for precise tracking

The reasonable price

WE LIKE LESS

The rotating crown to improve

Lack of vibration adjustment

Unable to respond to text messages

The absence of an application store

Slow charging

We tested the first Redmi brand connected bracelet that works with HyperOS. Fairly well equipped and aggressively priced, does this model have the necessary assets to stand out from the competition, starting with Xiaomi products?

SUMMARY

Succeeding the Redmi Watch 3 from 2023, the Redmi Watch 4, without revolutionizing the genre, has solid arguments to make. Larger screen, better battery capacity… it can, more than ever, argue the good equipment-price ratio dear to this Xiaomi brand. The first Redmi bracelet to run under HyperOS, the manufacturer's new OS, this model has the look of a connected watch thanks to its XXL screen. Its design is also reminiscent of that of the Apple Watch SE.

With such a low price, does the Redmi Watch 4 offer the services of more expensive devices and sufficiently versatile and efficient functions to convince on a daily basis? We tested this connected bracelet for a few weeks in its silver gray version. Here is what we thought of it after evaluating its main functions: monitoring sleep, health and sports activities, but also its ability to inform and communicate.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY OF THE XIAOMI REDMI WATCH 4
On the French market since the beginning of 2024, but somewhat overshadowed by Xiaomi's numerous launches at the major Barcelona mobility show (MWC), the Redmi Watch 4 is on sale on the Mi Store and from many specialized sellers. Its price is 99.99 euros and is among the most attractive from the manufacturer, significantly lower than that of a Xiaomi Watch S3 or even a Xiaomi Watch 2.

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 4
Amazon even sells it as “Prime” below 95 euros. And for those ordering for the first time on Mi.com, Xiaomi offers a reduction of 15 euros after activation of a coupon.

Xiaomi's Redmi Watch 4 connected bracelet is available in two colors, silver gray and obsidian black. For both versions, the case matches the bracelet. As this Redmi benefits from an easily unclipable bracelet, it will be possible to change color as desired by purchasing additional “straps” on the Xiaomi website.

The colors offered are Dark Cyan, Mint Green or Pastel Violet at 9.99 euros each. There are many more on Amazon, but they are not official versions and sometimes sell for more.

TECHNICAL SHEET
Visually, the Redmi Watch 4 differs little from the previous model, the Redmi Watch 3. Both are distinguished by a large screen, almost square in format. However, we quickly notice the more generous dimensions of Xiaomi's latest addition as well as the appearance of a rotating crown.

The Redmi Watch 4 comes with a proprietary USB-A charging cable, without a charger. It works as usual with the Mi Fitness app for Android and iOS.

A PLEASANT, BUT NOT DISCREET DESIGN

The Redmi Watch 4 has a false appearance of Smart Band 8 Pro, the XXL version of Xiaomi's flagship mini bracelet. However, it is much wider and a little thicker, which makes it not very discreet on a small wrist. In return, the user benefits from a really very large screen of almost 2 inches, very practical for viewing their data.

From a design point of view, the Redmi Watch 4 displays a disturbing resemblance to the Watch SE 44 mm, more than any other Xiaomi model due to the presence of the crown, even if on the Watch 4 this rotating crown turns out to be more centered . With its extraordinary dimensions, this Redmi is more of a watch than a bracelet. You will just have to deal with its large format on the wrist, in the absence of two models (one small, one large) like with Apple watches. For those looking for a less massive device, it will always be possible to turn to the Smart Band 8 Pro or the Redmi Watch 3. The first costs only 79.99 euros and the second displays a lower price, around 100 euros , at certain retailers.

The completely flat screen of the Redmi Watch 4 bracelet is stunning with its deep blacks and bright colors due to Amoled technology. It is like, on the Smart Band 8 Pro, surrounded by a fine metal net. The brushed aluminum edges, slightly domed, look classier, in our opinion, than those in the Band's chrome finish. At the back, there is of course no ceramic where the sensors are, only plastic, but as this coating is invisible when the watch is worn, it is not very serious. The sensation on the wrist will just be more “plastic”, without being fundamentally unpleasant. The lightness of the case is reflected and this is for the best, since it weighs only 31.5 grams (less than 50 grams, bracelet included).

If Xiaomi does not mention any protection for the screen glass (such as Gorilla Glass for example), it seems quite resistant. After wearing it day and night (or even mishandling it) for a few weeks, it shows no scratches. The case is, for its part, waterproof. It will therefore be possible to take a shower or swim in the pool with the Redmi Watch 4. The silicone bracelet is less flexible and therefore less pleasant to wear than that of the Smart Band 8 Pro, without it being really annoying. You get used to it quite quickly and it has the merit of being solid. The closure system is not one of our favorites, but here too, we end up taming it and the clip holds well.

The silver and notched crown provides an elegant design element, while providing a navigation aid... which can be improved as we will see later. On the back, we find the heart rate monitor and the magnetic charging port to connect the supplied USB cable (identical to that of the Smart Band 8 Pro). Finally, this Redmi is equipped with a microphone and a speaker to answer calls exclusively (no listening to music or voice responses from Alexa, just sound alerts signaling the arrival of notifications).

A BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY SURFACE
With its resolution barely lower than many high-end models, i.e. 326 dots per inch, the square (or almost) screen of the Redmi Watch 4 offers a large, highly precise display, perfectly suited to reading messages and other sports or health data. Its brightness is limited to 600 nits, which is not so bad, without coming close to the stars of the field like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 (2000 nits) or the Oneplus Watch 2 (1000 nits). This brightness is found on all of Xiaomi's latest devices, but it is sufficient in almost all cases, except when really directing the screen towards the sun. The AMOLED screen and its bright colors which contrast with the intense blacks contribute to excellent readability.

The usual settings all answer the call, whether it's the automatic mode which adjusts the brightness optimally, the "always on" mode, or the possibility of establishing time periods during which we don't want to be disturbed.

This screen size is all the more appreciable since with HyperOS, you have access to dozens of free dials in the Mi Fitness app to customize the Redmi Watch 4 to your liking. Some of them can even be personalized a little more from the watch, with different styles and colors and complications of one's choice. The new square HyperOS Widgets which provide access to its main data at a glance (up to 4 types of data per Widget, including the number of steps, calories, heart rate, SpO2, etc. .) fit perfectly on the big screen.

FLUID NAVIGATION, PERFECTIBLE CROWN
The Redmi Watch 4 works like any Xiaomi bracelet and HyperOS does not change the situation in terms of gestures: a swipe of your finger downwards to consult your notifications, upwards to access the shortcuts to the main settings.

FLUID NAVIGATION, PERFECTIBLE CROWN
The Redmi Watch 4 works like any Xiaomi bracelet and HyperOS does not change the situation in terms of gestures: a swipe of your finger downwards to consult your notifications, upwards to access the shortcuts to the main settings. Sliding sideways allows you to view your Widgets. Navigation is fluid and thanks to the button on the side (the famous rotating crown), it is possible to access the main functions of the bracelet with one press. By turning the crown, you scroll through them until you find the one you want.

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 4
The movement is accompanied by a small vibration, haptic feedback, which here is purely “cosmetic”. It does not help in selecting the correct function on the screen. This lack of correlation between vibration and on-screen display is a bit confusing. Without much use, this possibility is more annoying than anything else. You can, in the settings, delete this haptic feedback, but this suspends all vibrations on the bracelet, including those linked to the arrival of a notification. But here too we do very well without it, because it is not possible to finely adjust the intensity of the vibration, or even what types of messages to associate it with. However, whether you choose the strong vibration or prefer the default one, the intensity remains quite high. When you receive a slew of messages on a WhatsApp thread, it becomes a source of stress that requires you to cut off one or the other.

Xiaomi Redmi Watch 4
The most significant flaw of the crown is that a long press opens the menu to turn off, restart or even reset the watch. However, in certain types of wrist movements (often linked to sports exercises), we have frequently turned off the watch and therefore interrupted exercise monitoring. Very, very annoying.
