As we discovered via a Twitter post, the sub-brand under the Xiaomi corporation, POCO has fixed April 26, 2022, as the official launching date for the company’s first AloT product – the POCO Watch.
Recently, the Chinese smartphone giant has been expanding its tech domain to the wearables and IoT arena. The brand is known for the popular Poco F1 unveiled in 2018, followed by the Poco F2, Poco F3 series, and the Poco F4 series all equipped with the flagship Snapdragon 845 and 870 chipsets respectively.
However, in a leaked image shared @stufflistings, the tech giant is planning to launch a new bigger device come April 26, although it is not smartphones this time but rather a new smartwatch.
In a similar vein, the upcoming POCO watch was spotted on the Russian Electronics Certification platform, EEC, where a few specifications of the watch were exposed.
According to the leaked screenshot from the EEC, the upcoming smartwatch come with the model number Poco M2131W1, manufactured by 70mai Co. Ltd. in Shanghai. Although 70mai is not really known for their smartwatches, they have the dashcams such as the 70mai Dash Cam 1S, Dash Cam A400, and Dash Cam Pro Plus.

In addition, the smartwatch is expected to come with a 1.6-inch AMOLED display of 360x320px resolution and has a slight curve around the edges. Moreover, POCO Watch could feature an optical heart rate sensor and blood oxygen (SpO2) tracker and a 225mAh battery, with overall dimensions of 39.1 x 34.4 x 9.98mm and unveiled in Black, Blue, and Ivory colors.
Recall that in November last year, the company’s Global head Kevin Qiu revealed that it’s expanding into ecosystem products by 2022 probably, 70mai is one of the brands that POCO has currently integrated into their Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.
As it stands now, not much information about the company’s new expansion is available yet. However, it is suggested that earbuds, fitness bands, smartwatches, and power banks could be the first products of the POCO IoT ecosystem.
