Updated 1/2, 2020 – Yesterday the official announcement of Xiaomi Mi Watch Color was presented. The start of retail sales of smart watches is scheduled for January 3. Today, the Chinese manufacturer has published a series of photos of the gadget. Therefore, each user has the opportunity to evaluate the design concept of this device. Images of the novelties were highlighted in the social network Weibo. A large number of colorful straps are striking to the eye. The process of replacing them has become even simpler.
Smart watches are equipped with a 1.39-inch display with AMOLED matrix. The resolution of the screen is 454×454 pixels. Support for Bluetooth technology of the fifth generation has been implemented. Long-term autonomy is provided by a 420 mAh rechargeable battery. The results of the first test showed that Xiaomi Mi Watch Color can work without recharging for about 14 days.
The gadget is 5ATM waterproof. So you can take a shower or go to the pool with it. It also supports popular sports modes. Smart watch is equipped with a heart rhythm sensor. Monitoring is carried out with a minimum of inaccuracy. The manufacturer has integrated a branded voice assistant. The watch is equipped with an NFC module. With their help, you can pay for public transport or unlock the door lock. Many new functions have been added to control the “Smart Home” system.
If we talk about design, it really turned out to be informal. The round dial looks harmonious. The design of the screen each user will be able to adjust independently. Fans of portable devices are offered 6 different colors of interchangeable straps.
Updated October 28, 2019 – This morning it became officially known that the presentation of Xiaomi Mi Watch Color will take place on November 5. The smart watch will debut simultaneously with the flagship Mi CC9 Pro camera and Mi TV 5. Just a few minutes ago, the Chinese manufacturer published the first official announcement of the new product. It is well known that the new smart watches will work under the WearOS operating system, which was created by Google specifically for wearable devices.
Past smart Xiaomi watches are visually reminiscent of fitness bracelets. It is obvious that the Chinese manufacturer seriously intends to fix this defect. The Xiaomi Mi Watch Color will have a completely new design concept that is as close as possible to a classic mechanical watch. The manufacturer assures that the novelty will significantly surpass Apple Watch.
The first photograph of Xiaomi Mi Watch Color confirms that the bet is on a rectangular display. However, the angles are smoothed as much as possible. There are no physical buttons on the case. This means that users will be offered a complete touchscreen control system. According to rumors, the new system is equipped with a built-in SIM card, a 4G modem and an NFC module to make contactless payments.
Xiaomi is apparently preparing a new smartwatch. The name ‘Xiaomi Mi Watch Color‘ has been caught together with the name of Xiaomi Mix Alpha in a list of branded products that are about to be revealed. The leak is from the same leaker. This person who calls himself “Xiaomishka” has already proved correct in the past and if his word is correct, we will have another smartwatch from the Asian company to be revealed soon.
So far we have no concrete information on the smart watch. However, with the popularity of the most recent “Amazfit GTS” it would not be surprising that Xiaomi followed the same steps.
Still, take my word on the possible design of the device with a pinch of salt. These are just speculations and so far we have nothing concrete.
With the success of its Xiaomi Mi Band, in this case Mi Band 4, Xiaomi continues to show that this is a segment that the brand intends to bet on.
Xiaomi’s most popular gadgets are usually the products with the most affordable value, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the brand was successful in a smartwatch with the highest value and the most features.
The manufacturer not only gives us quality gadgets for the price we are paying, but also offers us real treasures at the price of rain. An example of this is its high-end Xiaomi Mi 9 that can be bought for just over $300. A top of the range that can be compared without problems to any other smartphone on the market right now and will not look bad!
To be honest, I am looking forward to this Xiaomi Mi Watch Color gadget to disrupt the market for smart watches, at least, to lower prices.
