With the introduction of the Mi Watch last year, Xiaomi commenced its journey into the wearable segment. Since then, the manufacturer has introduced the Mi Watch Revolve in certain markets, including India. Xiaomi has now introduced its affordable smartwatch, dubbed the Mi Watch Lite, which is essentially based on the Redmi Watch launched in China last month.
The Mi Watch Lite looks very similar to the original Mi Watch. It features a 1.4-inch LCD touch screen, with a resolution of 320x320 pixels and a peak brightness of 350 nits. It also features a capacitive home button on the right to go back.
The Mi Watch Lite supports 7 sport modes –outdoor cycling, open water swimming, trekking, trail run, walking, treadmill, freestyle, pool swimming, and indoor cycling. There's also a built-in GPS chip, which means the watch can accurately track any workout without relying on the paired smartphone. Besides that, the watch also comes with 24-hour heart-rate tracking, breathing exercises, and sleep monitoring.
On a single charge, the 230mAh battery of the Mi Watch Lite can last up to 9 days with light usage. It requires a smartphone with iOS10+ or Android 5.0+ for pairing over Bluetooth 5.0. Moreover, the smartwatch features over 120 watch-faces out-of-the-box, and it is also 50ATM/ 50 metres water-resistant.
The Mi Watch Lite is available in Thailand for 1,390 Thai Baht (approximately ₹3,400). It also went official in Indonesia earlier this week for Rp. 899,000 (approximately ₹4,700). Expect Xiaomi to bring the Mi Watch Lite in the sub-₹5,000 price segment in the Indian market. It is available in three body colours – ivory, blue, and black.
