- Xiaomi could be about to launch a new Mi Watch Revolve globally
- This watch could be a rebrand of the Mi Watch Color
- The Mi Watch Color was launched in China earlier in the year
Earlier at the turn of the year, Xiaomi unveiled its Mi Watch Color in China and as per new reports, it will soon become the company's first globally available smartwatch. New information claims the Mi Watch Color will be sold outside of China as the Mi Watch Revolve.
The information comes after the watch was spotted in the Mi Watch app alongside the upcoming Mi Smart Band 4C -- expected to be a rebrand of the Redmi band. There's also more hint at the same, with Spanish YouTuber eSavants also uploading a hands-on video of the smartwatch where we can clearly see the watch being called as the Mi Watch Revolve.
If it's the same watch as the one being sold in China, then we expect very little change in terms of the specs. The Mi Watch Color also shares most of the functionalities with Xiaomi's original Mi Watch that debuted last year. It can record a host of fitness functions such as steps, heart rate and calories. It also seems to be running on MIUI for Watch which is based on the Google Wear OS platform. The watch gets a 1.39-inch AMOLED display and it can you choose from 110 watch faces. Xiaomi says it can be water-resistant up to 50 meters depth.
In China, the Watch Color costs just CNY 799 which is around Rs 8,000 in India. In terms of sensors, there's a heart-rate monitor, sleep tracker, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, compass, barometer, gyroscope, accelerometer, and ambient light sensor. It is also rated to last up to 14-days with a 420mAh battery.
The Mi Watch Color also focuses more on being fashionable than functionality. The watch gives the option to choose from three different colours for the dial and multiple straps. There is no word on when the device will come to India, but whenever it does, we expect it to give the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and the Huawei Watch GT 2 a good run for its money.
