The Mi Watch or renamed Mi Watch Color Sports Edition is now getting Amazon Alexa voice assistant and the phone’s camera shutter or camera controller functions. Both are widely known features, and Huami’s fitness trackers Amazfit Band 5 have these functions. By unlocking these tools, the company has given more power to users to get most of it. With Amazon Alexa, users can give many commands to watch to get specific results.
In the Chinese version, the company offers Xiao AI voice assistant, but with Amazon Alexa, the global users can also take advantage of it. The camera shutter tool will allow users to control the phone camera from the smartwatch. The Mi Watch Color will help users to take selfies or group photos.
