Xiaomi has never launched a smartwatch. This may sound quite odd for those who have been using the AMAZFIT series smartwatches. But the truth is this smartwatch line doesn’t belong to Xiaomi but its eco-chain enterprise, Huami. However, this should change sooner or later. And recently, the company announced its first smartwatch, namely the Xiaomi Watch. Now, it’s available for purchase. Our protagonist is priced at $285. But trust us – it is worth this price tag.
The Xiaomi Watch adopts a 1.78-inch AMOLED square-shape screen. The 44mm dial has a pixel density of 326PPI, and it supports long-light and low-light modes. In fact, it has a quad-curved glass mirror design, which is put on a matte aluminum alloy chassis. The latter has an excellent texture and is scratch-resistant. The back cover and fluoro rubber strap are suitable for long-term use.
One of the selling points of this watch is the built-in full-featured eSIM chip. It provides independent call and Internet access. Thus, we are dealing with a standalone smartwatch that doesn’t need a smartphone for any operation.
By the way, the Xiaomi Watch is the world’s first smartwatch coming with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 4G version wearable flagship processor. The latter brings a lot of goodies, such as support for independent WiFi, independent Bluetooth, multi-function NFC, and other features.
There is a built-in 570mAh high-capacity battery, with up to 36 hours of battery life.
The Xiaomi Watch also is the first product to come with pre-installed open-minded watch operating system MIUI For Watch. It provides 100 quality dial themes. And what’s more important, you can download a number of apps, use a custom dial adding your favorite photos to the dial, and many more.
As said, there is an application market. From there, you can download more than 40 popular apps, and this is an open platform. So we will see more apps soon.
The Xiaomi Watch also supports Xiao Ai voice assistant, which allows us to control smart home appliances directly from your watch.
At last, it has a European game-level motion algorithm ‘FIRSTBEAT’, supports VO2max maximum oxygen uptake analysis, and 10 professional sports modes.
