Xiaomi confirmed that it will launch its first-ever smartwatch at an event on November 5 and later on it revealed the look of it as well. Now a hands-on video has surfaced that shows the Mi Smartwatch in action. As you would see, the short 30-seconds video shows off mainly the user interface. A user is accessing the watch and scrolling through the number of apps in the “App Drawer” and tapping on an app to watch a video.
The hands-on video on the Xiaomi smartwatch doesn’t accompany any details but the video is enough to showcase what the device can do. There is a nob on the right edge of the device that allows scrolling.
Earlier, it was reported that Mi smartwatch will be powered by the customized version of Google’s Android Wear operating system that could be named “Mi Wear” OS. It is confirmed the smartwatch will feature a high-performance CPU along with independent GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules. The battery inside the device is going to be pretty large as well. It will also have eSIM support to make phone calls and do other functions.
Xiaomi has also confirmed the Mi smartwatch can run apps like WeChat & Alipay. This means the watch can run third-party apps for additional functions. You will also be able to control smart home devices and check your fitness data right from the Mi smartwatch.
