Xiaomi Mi Watch was just presented yesterday (November 5th)! But truth be told, many smartwatch fans are already crazy about what the Chinese giant is about to launch for the consumer market.
After all, although there are hundreds of smartwatch models on the shelves… The truth is that there is still no real rival for Apple Watch in the Google Android world.
Incidentally, Google itself does not produce or have a 'key' manufacturer to move its operating system forward.
So it turns out to be curious to see Xiaomi grabbing an OS that was on the streets of bitterness. Generating a wave of brutal enthusiasm for a new product that could finally change things for those who have an Android, and really want a decent smartwatch.
Why such enthusiasm around Xiaomi Mi Watch? Find out the top 5 smartwatch news!
1. The Price
Xiaomi Mi Watch costs less than half of Apple Watch and is also significantly cheaper than the leading Wear OS watches on the market. After all, the 'made in China' offer will cost anything like £ 180, while Apple Watch easily exceeds £ 400. However, the most popular watch Wear OS (Fossil Gen5) costs almost 300 €.
2. A battery capable of good autonomy
We're talking about 570mAh of battery capacity, surpassing the Huawei Watch GT2 46mm (455mAh), Galaxy Watch Active 2 (296mAh) and Apple Watch Series 5 (296mAh). In short, Mi Watch has one of the largest batteries on the market, which should translate to 36 hours of use.
3. Brutal design and a 1.78 ”AMOLED display
Xiaomi is no joke, so we bet on AMOLED technology and the 1.78 ”size for the new Wear OS watch. In addition, we have a 44mm body with a ceramic back. (Aluminum or stainless steel construction).
Which as you may already know, reminds us of Apple Watch. However, in my opinion… This is not a negative point. The Apple Watch is the market leader, so imitate at ease.
4. Google Wear OS with MIUI Customization
Wear OS is a full-fledged system that has unfortunately not yet succeeded in the wearables market. However, it looks like it's about to get a big push from Xiaomi, with the Chinese giant producing 40 watch applications as well as its own app store.
In fact, Xiaomi even opened its store to all developers, hoping that the ecosystem will start to grow progressively, with a lot of quality. In addition, it is likely that the model for the rest of the world will also have access to the Google Play Store… So applications are not lacking.
5. Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 4G
In the end, the Snapdragon Wear 3100 is no big deal on the market… However, here is the 4G version, the most powerful model from the manufacturer with 4 Cortex A7 physical cores capable of reaching a maximum frequency of 1.2GHz.
In addition, as the name implies, we have support for the 4G LTE network, bringing eSIM technology to the table.
