Xiaomi announced a new version of the Mi Watch a couple of days ago and it has finally revealed the price of the wearable. Called the Mi Watch Color, it’s currently launching in China as of now and Xiaomi will start selling it from as low as 799 Yuan, which when converted to Indian Rupees costs Rs 8,100. That makes the Mi Watch Color more affordable when compared to the Mi Watch that was launched a few months ago.
The Mi Watch Color is a new version of the Mi Watch that focuses more on the fashion quotient instead of the functionality. Xiaomi is yet to launch the device in China officially but the teaser posters of the device have so far revealed that this one cares about those users who are after the style. The Mi Watch Color, as the name suggests, offers an option to choose from three different colours for the dial and multiple straps.
The biggest difference between the Mi Watch and Mi Watch Color is that the latter gets a circular dial similar to Samsung Galaxy Watch Active whereas the Mi Watch has a rectangular dial.
Apart from the colourful straps, the Mi Watch Color also gets most of the functionalities that original Mi Watch debuted a few weeks ago. 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 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 metres depth.
For connectivity, the watch uses Bluetooth 5.0 and it features GPS for location tracking. The Mi Watch Color will rely on a 420mAh battery which Xiaomi claims can offer a power backup of up to 14 days.
So far, the Mi Watch Color is promised for the Chinese market only and it remains to be seen whether Xiaomi launches the watch in global markets. The original Mi Watch still hasn’t been launched outside of China yet. However, the Mi Watch Color at Rs 8,100 is more affordable than the Mi Watch and chances are that Xiaomi is willing to bring this one to global markets, including India.
Xiaomi currently sells its Mi Band 4 and Mi Band 3i fitness trackers in the Indian market.
