Xiaomi has finally unpacked its budget smartwatch, Mi Watch Color with MIUI skin based Android’s Wear OS. The watch was on the hot list since the previous few weeks. It leaked by many leaksters and Xiaomi also helped them by giving many hints. The Watch Color is more pocket-friendly and also comes with a circular design rather than a rectangular design like Mi Watch. The wearable will not compete with Apple Watch, but offer an affordable smartwatch with minimum price and maximum features, says Xiaomi.
It has a 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display with 454 x 454 resolution and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It runs on MIUI for Watch based on Google’s Wear OS platform. The 14-days power performance in a single charge promised with 420 mAh battery is impressive when the watch drives with Wear OS. The battery is more than Huami’s GTR watch that comes in the same range. Xiaomi Watch Color has Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GLONASS, & GPS for the connectivity and several other sensors.
For fitness, you will get help from many outdoor & indoor activity modes and six types of sensors to map accurate results. Xiaomi says the watch is for fashion purposes and one can use different color bands to show their true colors. The users can create up to 1540 color combinations on the device. In China, Xiaomi Mi Watch Color has launched for Yuan 799 ($114) and the sales have started from today. The global availability of the watch has not confirmed yet; Xiaomi may announce it later.
