Mi Watch Review

Xiaomi watch can be considered as smallsmartphone on the hand, since this accessory offers the user the most complete list of necessary functions, including offline calls. We will discuss everything that China said during the press conference 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 smartwatches fromXiaomi is really impressive. But no less important is the appearance of the accessory, which will proudly display on your wrist. The smartwatch comes with a square touchscreen display protected by sapphire crystal. The back of the watch is made of ceramic. There's a wheel on the right to navigate the watch's UI. In addition, there is a multi-function button and a microphone on the right side.

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.

  • 1.78 inch AMOLED display (326ppi density, like Apple Watch 5)

  • 570 mAh battery, which is much more than that of competitors

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 a keyis a financial sponsor of Huami, the little-known maker of these increasingly popular and incredibly affordable smartwatches. Many people have already purchased Amazfit smart watches. They can be easily purchased online. Thus, we can say that Xiaomi — is not new to the smartwatch market, although the Mi Watch is the first such device released under the Chinese tech giant's main brand.

A small summary… The accessory promises to bepopular. The manufacturer borrowed the rectangular shape, digital crown and button layout from the industry-dominant Apple Watch line, and crammed a massive 570mAh battery into a durable aluminum casing. Combined with an equally attractive price, this accessory becomes simply ideal. But this is only the first impression so far…

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