On November 5, the Chinese company Xiaomi introduced another interesting novelty – its first smart watch, Mi Watch. The new Xiaomi gadget is very similar to the "smart" watch Apple Watc both in design and in terms of features. But is it worth it to buy? Understood this material.
Xiaomi Mi Watch: who should buy
Externally, the smartwatch Xiaomi Mi Watch looks like a budget version of the Apple Watch. The watch has a stainless steel case with slightly rounded edges and fairly simple interchangeable straps.
Mi Watch is equipped with a 1.76-inch AMOLED display. On the right side of the case are painfully familiar to Apple Watch elements: a mechanical crown for turning and a side button. Similar to the Digital Crown wheel in the Apple Watch, the crown in the Mi Watch is used to scroll through various content, such as lists.
Mi Watch has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and eSIM modules. The watch allows you to pay for purchases in a non-contact manner and make calls using the integrated SIM card. True, both of these opportunities are likely to remain exclusive to China. Xiaomi representatives have not yet revealed any details about the use of NFC in the Mi Watch in other countries.
On the smart watch Mi Watch, an adapted version of the MIUI shell for Xiaomi smartphones is installed and there are a number of pre-installed applications. The gadget also supports third-party applications that must be downloaded from the Mi Watch’s own app store.
Mi Watch have a traditional set of features for smart watches. The gadget is able to show time, display notifications from a smartphone, monitor user activity and heart rate. According to Xiaomi executives, a watch can track owner activity during 10 different sports.
Mi Watch look like Apple Watch and have a similar set of features. At the same time, the price of the device is much less. Mi Watch will go on sale at a price of 1299 yuan (about 12 thousand rubles). For comparison, the Apple Watch Series 5 is sold in Russia at a price of 32,990 rubles.
So who is this Mi Watch for? First of all, for the Chinese market. Xiaomi is not the first year to create devices similar to Apple's solutions. Sales show that buyers from China like it. Xiaomi turns out almost as beautifully, but at the same time cheaply. And the fact that this is a clone, few buyers care.
In addition, the Mi Watch will definitely find demand in other markets. It is expected that watches can become popular in Russia. The demand for Xiaomi technology among Russians is great. The only thing that can restrain buyers is the relatively high price of the device.
