Xiaomi yesterday revealed the specification and appearance of the Mi Watch, and today we received information about the operating system. Xiaomi has announced via Weibo that the watch will work on MIUI For Watch, which is a special version of MIUI for the watch.
The watch interface is shown in two videos:
How are the impressions of MIUI For Watch? Personally, I don't like tiles, round icons on Apple Watch, that's why I changed them to a list of applications sorted alphabetically. In my opinion, this is a faster and more convenient solution. In the Xiaomi system, I am concerned about one very important function for me.
Unfortunately, it is still unknown whether MIUI For Watch will be an overlay on the WearOS by Google system, or a separate system created by Xiaomi. If the second option is rather we definitely have to forget about contactless payments via NFC outside of China. On the other hand, why Xiaomi would give the name MIUI for the operating system, after all, it is currently the name of an overlay for Android smartphones.
On the Chinese social network has been published graphics showing the grid of applications for the watch, I'm worried that you can see in it only Chinese apps. Yesterday I was convinced that the watch would support Google Pay, I'm not so sure today.
The official November 5 presentation, there are still a few days left and certainly Xiaomi will reveal even more secrets on Weibo.
