Remember the oh-so-Apple-Watch-looking Mi Watch? Well, here’s the Mi Watch, but not that Mi Watch. This is Xiaomi’s first smartwatch for the global market and it is also called, well, Mi Watch.
Unlike China’s Mi Watch, this one is rocking a oh-not-so-Apple-Watch-looking round design. It is worthy to note that this isn’t the first round smartwatch from Xiaomi. There’s a round model Mi Watch in China called Mi Watch Color. But this is not a rebrand of the Color. At least, it does not look like it aesthetically.
It is a beautiful smart timepiece that features a large 1.39-inch AMOLED round touch display, a dedicated sports button on the side, 117 exercise modes, and six sensors and GPS that monitors a myriad of metrics and environmental data including heart rate, blood oxygen level, as well as air pressure.
It is feather weight, tipping the scale at mere 32g (1.13 oz.!) and it further boasts 5 ATM water resistance and built-in voice assistant. The Xiaomi Mi Watch for the global market has a claimed battery life of 16 days.
Xiaomi Mi Watch for the global market is expected to be “available soon,” priced at just 99 euro (about US$116) a pop.
