Xiaomi’s latest contribution to the wearable community is its newly introduced Mi Watch. The customers all across the world are talking about it and eagerly waiting for its global launch. The tragedy is, after two months of launching in November, the Mi Watch is still restricted in Chinese borders. Again, no words from Xiaomi officials about general availability in a few selected countries. Xiaomi is always trying to pack all premium features at affordable prices and the latest Mi Band 3 & Mi Band 4 is the best example of it.
Mi Watch is the company’s first true smartwatch made by the home team instead of outsourcing to the Huami engineers. Of course, there is no rivalry between both these companies but this time, Xiaomi took all the control in its hand. The result is, we are near to get one of the best premium smartwatches at a low price. Although it is only available in China, we have received its functions that may clear your mind to buy this masterpiece. Some features are restricted to China so we are pointing on those who will be available in other countries. These are the 7 best features on Mi Watch.
Best Mi Watch Features
1. Runs on Wear OS
It is the main reason most users want to buy Xiaomi MI Watch. It runs on MIUI based Wear OS and it supports all the original features of Android watch OS. The Xiaomi has launched more than 40 apps for the Mi Watch for daily usage. The company also has opened the door for third-party developers so, in the next few months, we can see loads of apps in the store.
2. Offers the best display
Well, you may say it and another Apple Watch clone after the launch of Amazfit GTS. The truth is it is the most elegant display in the market. It offers a 1.78-inch screen that counts 326 PPI pixel density and is protected with Sapphire Crystal. The bigger touchscreen means more area to read and operate. You can read messages, health data, and other information in a clear view. Besides, it is scratch-resistant and has an Always-on Display function.
3. Fastest Processor
Qualcomm’s 3100 Snapdragon chipset has curated for smartwatches and it has utterly packed inside the watch. Wearables don’t need too much power to run, but sometimes we need faster performance. It is best to open apps, save some battery power and show you accurate data.
4. Smooth performance with RAM & storage
It comes with 1GB RAM & 4GB internal storage. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 was the first flagship smartphone that had 1GB of RAM. Now, we are in that era where we get 1GB RAM inside the smartwatch. You can imagine what 1GB RAM can do on the Mi Watch. Besides, 4GB storage allows storing music songs and images. You can save up to 300 songs on the device and also can take screenshots and save.
5. eSIM support
Yes, you have heard right, you can use the Mi Watch with eSIM. Apple Watch Series 5 & Galaxy Watch Active 2 has 4G LTE support, but you have to depend on the smartphone. The Mi Watch is not like that. You can use eSIM and use it as a smartphone. Currently, the smartwatch is available in China so only three Chinese telecom operators can use it. When it launches in the world market, then we will see more telecom operators support it.
6. Wide connectivity
When you get GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection on a single watch then you can say it is a premium watch. The Mi Watch has all these features to give you more options to connect. You can connect to the internet via Wi-Fi and make contactless payment using NFC function. GPS will track all your activities and provides an accurate location.
7. Fitness tracking
It pre-installed with 10 physical activities and many indoor & outdoor sports activities. It includes walking, running, swimming, climbing and various other workout modes. It enables users to track heart rate every 30 minutes or turn on real-time tracking. Mi Band 4 & upcoming Mi Band 5 will be the best trackers in the market. If you want all these workout functions on the smartwatch, then Mi Watch is the best option.
In the low price, Xiaomi has offered all the essential features inside the Mi Watch. We haven’t mentioned some other features that we will cover in another article. In the coming weeks, Xiaomi will launch Mi Watch in other countries. We will inform you when that happens.
