Xiaomi and Redmi already have their own smartwatch teams, and now it’s Poco’s turn to join the fight. The sub-brand is known for its extremely affordable smartphones, so expect to see affordable smartwatches from Poco.
The news comes from the Russian Certification Platform, known as the Russian Electronic Certification (EEC). Here is a list of Poco smart watches that will be a first for the Chinese sub-brand.
According to the list, the Poco smartwatch will carry the model number M2131W1 and will be manufactured in Shanghai by one of Xiaomi’s 70mai Co partners. It is the same manufacturer that makes IoT devices for Xiaomi.
However, this Chinese manufacturer is not known for its smart watches. Its most popular devices include front-panel cameras, but that doesn’t mean the Poco smartwatch will be unreliable.
Since this is the first and only leak so far on the Poco smartwatch, there is no information about the specifications yet. In November 2021, a Poco CEO spoke about the company’s plans to enter the IoT business in the future, but this is the only information it has disclosed.
Kevin Qiu, President of Poco Global
We always think that smartphones and IoT are important strategies for us.
This means that in the future we expect to see a fully developed Poco IoT ecosystem, including wearable devices, power banks, fitness tapes and smart watches.
However, we will update this area as soon as the official launch date.
