Xiaomi launched the new Mi 10T family of smartphones globally but they weren’t the only products it had launched. Xiaomi also launched Mi Watch and a Mi 65W Fast Charger.
The Mi Watch that it has launched is a global variant and different from the Chinese offering that it launched back in November last year. This Mi Watch has a circular dial compared to the boxy look of the Chinese variant.
Remember the global Mi Watch does not run on Android Wear OS and instead runs on Xiaomi’s proprietary custom OS that the company has developed for its smartwatch ecosystem. Also, the lack of Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the display differentiates fro Mi Watch Revolve that recently launched in India.
The new Mi Watch features a 1.39-inch AMOLED display. There are over 100 watch faces, camera remote function, native emojis on notifications, voice control, and Amazon Alexa support, and more. There is support or 117 exercise modes, along with six different sensors and built-in GPS. Xiaomi is claiming a battery life of 16 days with continuous use.
The price of the Mi Watch is €99. You also get the option to customize it using the 6 different band options.
Xiaomi also launched Mi 65W Fast Charger with GaN (Gallium Nitride) technology. This tech allows the charger to be more compact than Silicon chargers with similar output. The price of this charger is €29.99.
