Reviewing the Xiaomi YouPin Mibro Watch X1, a fresh 2022 budget smartwatch boasting some of the best specs for under £50 – including an AMOLED display and up to 60 days battery life. Of course that’s with the Basic Mode, and there’s the usual rough edges here on the Xiaomi Mibro Watch X1. But if you want smart functionality and fitness tracking on a seriously tight budget, you’ll struggle to find better at this price.

Like most affordable smartwatches, the design is mostly plastic with a silicone strap. You get fitness tracking with 38 sports modes, 24/7 heart rate monitoring and sleep recording. Water resistance to 5ATM means you can track your swim sessions too. That 1.3-inch AMOLED display is among the best I’ve seen at this budget cost, if not as sharp as more premium rivals.
On the flip side, there’s no proper Always On Display. Screen responsiveness is less than stellar, and brightness control is 100% manual.
