Xiaomi to Launch Mi Watch Lite Tomorrow: Report

Last month, Xiaomi’s Mi watch lite passed through the FCC certification process. Now, according to an exclusive report by Gizmochina, the company is planning to launch the toned-down smartwatch (a rebranded Redmi watch) tomorrow (10th December 2020).

The report details that the upcoming smartwatch retains most of the specifications we saw in the Redmi watch. The Mi Watch will come with a 1.4-inch square display with 2.5D curved glass and 323 PPI pixel density. It will come with support for more than 20 custom dials, including classic simplicity, cool IP, independent design, and more.

However, since the watch is a global variant, it will ditch Xiaomi’s voice assistant XiaoAI.

In terms of health monitoring modes, the watch will likely come with a built-in high-precision six-axis sensor with a motion algorithm on top of the basic heart monitoring, sleep monitoring, and activity tracking modes.

Since the watch will be a global variant, we might see a few tweaks here and there. The report does not detail whether the watch will support NFC connectivity or not.

As far as the pricing is concerned. The watch will cost approximately 15 bucks more than the Redmi watch, i.e., $60. The Redmi watch retails at $45.
