Xiaomi Watch S1 and Buds 4 Pro officially unveiled

Xiaomi launched the Watch S1 since late last year, the product recently got access to Xiaomi Pay service in the UK. The Pro model only comes to enhance the experience offered to users.

Launched for now only for the Chinese market, Watch S1 Pro and Buds 4 Pro are upgraded versions of Xiaomi gadgets already available in the European market. We could say that it’s already becoming a pattern for Xiaomi to release an initial version of a product, then and upgrade available exclusively to Chinese buyers, to reach European buyers much later (or never). The first explanation would be cost, with Xiaomi having to manage the cost of shipping and import duties, in the end, devices that are very attractive to the Chinese audience become unsellable on the European market. We could also argue that the Chinese market is simply more important for Xiaomi at the moment.
