These are pretty useful but aren’t exactly limited to phones. Smartwatches also receive occasional updates and in this post, we talk you through the simple process of updating your Redmi Watch 2 Lite to the latest firmware.

Worth noting is that Xiaomi doesn’t really push out regular updates to its watches, at least not as often as say its Android smartphones that need to get monthly security patches.
