Xiaomi has given the Redmi Watch 3 a global rollout, following the release of the smartwatch in China back in December. 

Redmi's latest watch follows on from the Watch 2 Lite launched back in 2021, with the key improvements being the new always-on AMOLED display and the estimated 12 days of battery life. 

As you would expect, the budget price tag given to the device in China also carries over to different markets, with it retailing for £99.99 / €119.99.

As ever, there are no official release date details provided for those in the US, but we expect the watch to become available on retailers such as Amazon over the coming months.

When that happens, a price tag of around $75 would match up with previous generations.

It's not just the improved design and battery life that users will be able to take advantage of, either, with the Watch 3 promising GPS support and the ability to choose from 120 workout profiles, too. 

In terms of health features, there's also a SpO2 monitor to keep track of blood oxygen saturation.

We'd expect that 12-day battery life estimation to come down somewhat with the SpO2 function turned on around the clock - as well as the always-on display - but it's still very likely the Watch 3 is capable of lasting more than a week, as we recently found in our Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro review.

We'll be getting our hands on the budget smartwatch over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for our full verdict.
