You get a large circular AMOLED display, measuring 1.39” in diameter, so you can easily read notifications and there’s plenty of room for at-a-glance info. Speaking of, the watch can track your heart rate and blood-oxygen saturation (SpO2) as well as the ambient air pressure.
The watch has 117 exercise modes and (unlike the Mi Band) there is a built-in GPS receiver, so it doesn’t need to be connected to your phone when you go for a run. The time piece is also swim proof, so you can do a few laps in the pool with it.
There’s NFC on the international model along with voice control.
Battery life is stellar, much longer than a typical Wear OS watch. Officially, the battery will last up 16 days and it only needs 2 hours to fully charge.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch will be available soon, the price target is €100 (it will differ slightly based on local VAT).
Xiaomi is also bringing a powerful 65W charger based on modern GaN technology. The Mi 65W Fast Charger can power anything from a smartphone to a laptop (also, the Nintendo Switch). It has a USB-C plug and supports USB Power Delivery.
The charger will be available soon at a price of €30.
