With the official words out, we now know Mi Watch’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 Wear is backed by 1 GB RAM and has 8 GB onboard storage. Also, previously, we know it will have an AMOLED display, now we know it is a 1.78-inch item with 368 x 448 resolution.
Just as we have anticipated, the onboard microphone will also facilitate the use of Xiaomi’s blend of voice assistant, Xiaoai.
Oh and also, it has two battery capacities. The standard edition gets a large 570 mAh battery while the premium edition gets a tad larger 590 mAh variety. Xiaomi said the battery on its Mi Watch could last up to 36 hours.
If it is true, it should be the longest lasting battery from a Wear OS device in the market thus far.
The rest of the details are basically what we have dug into in our previous report. As such, we will not take up your precious time, regurgitating what we have detailed previously.
Finally, the availability and pricing. Xiaomi has chosen to make the smartwatch available on “Singles’ Day” on November 11, 2019.
However, eager gadget lovers in China are welcome to pre-order the watch starting November 5. Prices are 1,299 yuan and 1,999 yuan for the standard and premium edition, respectively (about $185 and $285).
We shall it how much it will sell when it is make available to the global markets. They are not exactly ‘cheap’, IMHO. I was expecting less. TicWatch and Amazfit remains the champions of affordable smartwatches. Or just TicWatch if you are looking at just Wear OS.
