Today, November 5, Xiaomi is holding a grand presentation in China, within which it was presented

Several products at once, including the most egregious clone of Apple Watch - the first Xiaomi Mi Watch smartwatch.

Mi Watch Review

Watch from Xiaomi can be considered as smallsmartphone on hand, because this accessory offers the user the most complete list of necessary functions, including stand-alone calls. Everything that China said at the press conference, we will discuss further.

Functional

New Xiaomi Mi Watch work for the companyMIUI user interface based on Google Wear OS. The accessory offers a set of classic functions for smart watches, including heart rate monitoring, the ability to control physical activity, detail and control your sleep, display notifications from your smartphone.

But that's not all. It provides all the necessary elements for making offline calls: eSIM module, built-in microphone and speaker. In addition, Mi Watch supports a full range of wireless interfaces (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and even NFC). You will also like the opportunity to listen to music using the Mi Watch, as the watch has 4 GB of internal memory.

Design

The functional aspect of the new smart watch fromXiaomi, however, is impressive. But no less important is the appearance of the accessory, which will proudly flaunt on your wrist. Smart watches come with a square touch screen protected by sapphire crystal. The back of the watch is made of ceramic. To the right there is a wheel for navigating the user interface of the watch. In addition, on the right side there is a multi-function button and a microphone.

On the left you have another microphone holeand vent. The Mi Watch case has a matte aluminum alloy case, but it has sharper bends than the Apple Watch. Below you will see the contacts for the charger and the heart rate monitor.

Specifications

  • 1.78 inch AMOLED display (326ppi density, like Apple Watch 5)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 4G chip with four Cortex A7 cores with a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz
  • 570 mAh battery, which is much more than that of competitors
  • battery life - up to 36 hours or up to two days without recharging.

Other features

Mi Watch has its own built-inapplication store. He will offer 40 optimized applications for the new watch, including popular Chinese applications such as QQ, WeChat and others. Thanks to NFC, it is also possible to make mobile payments in China with the help of Mi Watch. In addition, the accessory can also be connected to the smart home system to control smart household appliances in your apartment.

Mi Watch also supports eSIM, which provides the ability to connect to the Internet via cellular networks. And also make and receive calls yourself.

Price, sales in Russia

Pre-orders for watches can be issuedtoday already. November 11 will start their sales in China. The cost of the Mi Watch in China will be 1299 yuan (about 185 dollars). For 1999 yuan ($ 285) you will receive a special version using the best materials (sapphire crystal, ceramic case back, stainless steel frame and metal strap). I hope it’s not worth hoping to launch a watch in the USA.

Note that Xiaomi is the keyfinancial sponsor of Huami, a little-known manufacturer of these increasingly popular and incredibly affordable smart watches. Many have already purchased an Amazfit smartwatch. They can be easily bought online. Thus, we can say that Xiaomi is not a newcomer to the smart watch market, although Mi Watch is the first such device released under the main brand of the Chinese technology giant.

A small summary ... The accessory promises to bepopular. The manufacturer borrowed a rectangular shape, a digital crown and a button layout from the industry-leading Apple Watch line, squeezed a massive 570 mAh battery into a durable aluminum case. In combination with an equally attractive price, this accessory becomes just perfect. But this is only the first impression ...

In Russia, it will be possible to buy Mi Watch from Xiaomi through official retailers and at large market places.
