After several days of gossip and information leaks Xiaomi's first smartwatch has been officially presented. The watch really promises to be very promising: it is NFC, eSIM and an operating system for watches Wear OS from Google. Look? Xiaomi has copied the undisputed leader among smartwatches, i.e. the Apple Watch and this is not subject to discussion. Check Xiaomi Mi Watch.
Xiaomi finally created a real smartwatch. It is no longer just a purely sports watch, but it can become an element of jewelry. The screen in the premium version has been covered sapphire glass, and the envelope and the strap are made of stainless steel.
Mi Watch has an AMOLED screen with an 1,78 inch screen size. The pixel density per inch is 326, the latest Apple Watch series 5 also has a screen density of 326 ppi. The envelope size is 44 mm and there are no smaller, "female" versions. Just like the Apple Watch 5, Xiaomi Mi Watch also has a feature Always on Display.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor is responsible for computing power, it is an integrated circuit dedicated to smart watches. SoC consists of four ARM Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1,2 GH and Adreno 304 graphics. The watch is equipped with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of data space.
Communication? There is everything you need in 2019 year! Xiaomi Mi Watch offers Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, GPS and eSIM. Currently, the only operator in Poland that offers virtual SIM cards is the Orange network. I use their services myself and my main number is "duplicated". I put the physical card in the phone, and a virtual eSIM with the same number is assigned to the Apple Watch. Now I often leave the house without a phone, only with a watch on my hand.
Of course, since there is eSIM, Mi Watch has a built-in microphone and speaker. In an emergency, you can pick up a call from your watch or call someone.
The watch uses the operating system on the Wear OS by Google watches, but has a proprietary overlay from Xiaomi - MIUI for Watch. Navigating the interface is done by touch or you can use the physical lace on the right, complete like the Apple product. Xiaomi also copied the function button directly below the rotating lace.
