After a long time, we have a good smartwatch at a reasonable price tag, the Redmi Watch 3 Active is priced at Rs 2999 and it has its Pros and Cons. So let’s find out whether it’s worth buying or not.
Is It Worth Buying Redmi Watch 3 Active?
Yes, 100% the Redmi Watch 3 Active is worth buying because it offers clean and smooth software support which is rare to see at an affordable price tag while Bluetooth calling makes a huge difference too, so yes, for the price of Rs 2999, this is worthy smartwatch you can consider.
By the way, the Redmi Watch 3 Active is priced at Rs 2999 and it comes in Black and Gray color options while it will be available via Amazon.
I have already written a review on MobileDrop but still, let’s talk about a few important things like Bluetooth calling and the software.
The watch has one microphone and one speaker and they’re good but it’s not that great.
For example, if you’re in a public place then it will get hard to hear someone’s voice on call while the other person on call will also have a hard time hearing your voice.
Still, I feel for the price of Rs 3000, this is the best you can get at this movement.
Also, yes, this is not an LTE version, you have to connect this watch to your smartphone via Mi Fitness App otherwise, the calling feature won’t work properly.
I have said many times that never rely on budget smartwatches when it comes to health, the reason is simple, most of the brand uses optical sensor which is not that accurate.
Talking about Redmi Watch 3 Active, keep the error margin about 5%. For example, if the watch says, your step count for today is 3000 then expect it around 2900.
Also, the watch doesn’t have a built-in GPS.
Redmi has added one cool feature that’s called Widgest, so instant of using any watch face, you can choose your favorite widgets like heart rate, sleep data, or even time.
This is a new thing I have seen in budget smartwatch and I hope, other brands will take note of this.
The Mi Fitness App is solid and it’s smooth too while the same can be said for the watch UI too.
Display and Battery Life
The 1.83-inch LCD display is solid which will give you a good viewing experience even under the sunlight while the 450 nits brightness will ensure that you can see everything from time to heart rate on the display.
But if you use all the features expect the battery life to be around 2 to 3 days.
Dizo had the best smartwatches but they’re gone now, so for now, we don’t have many good options other than the Redmi Watch 3 Active. So yes, you will be more than happy with its performance while the Rs 3000 price tag is perfect for what Redmi is offering.
Of course, it doesn’t have the AMOLED panel or even built-in GPS but this is also Rs 3000 and you can’t expect these features.
So for those features, consider spending Rs 5000.
