It marks Xiaomi’s entry into the smartwatch category, a segment that is yet to see something great.
Android-compatible smartwatches haven’t really taken off ever since Android Wear was announced years ago.
Xiaomi’s approach is a little different, where it is not only creating the hardware platform but also designing a skin over Wear OS.
Some 40+ major Chinese apps have been designed specifically for the Mi Watch, such as TikTok, Nio, QQ Messenger, etc.
Xiaomi's XiaoAI assistant is also integrated.
It is a 1.78-inch AMOLED display with a toughened curved glass on top.
