Mi Watch app confirms the Mi Watch Revolve as the global version of the Mi Watch Color; Mi Smart Band 4C release expected imminently too
It has been a few months since Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Watch Color and Redmi Smart Band 4C. However, the Mi Watch app has seemingly confirmed that both will soon be released globally. Rebranded as the Mi Watch Revolve and Mi Smart Band 4C respectively, the two wearables would join the recently-announced Mi Band 5, which is expected to be released next month as the Mi Smart Band 5.
The discovery was made by eSavants, which purchased a Mi Watch Color from AliExpress. The retailer sells the smartwatch for as little as US$100 depending on the version that you purchase. Please keep in mind that AliExpress currently only sells the Chinese version of the device. The Watch Color features a 1.39-inch AMOLED panel, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, a compass, 5 ATM water resistance and a 420 mAh battery that should last up to 14 days on a single charge. The Mi Watch Color does not run WearOS though, unlike the original Mi Watch.
Xiaomi has been rumoured to be releasing a global edition of the Redmi Smart Band 4C for a few months now. However, this is the first time that the company has been seen referring to the device as the Mi Smart Band 4C. The wearable is considerably cheaper than the Mi Watch Color, which is reflected in its components. Xiaomi equips the Redmi Smart Band 4C with a 1.08-inch LCD panel, for example, and sells it for CNY 99 (~US$14) in China. The wearable still has 5 ATM water resistance, though.
There is no word on a release date or pricing for either the Mi Watch Revolve or Mi Smart Band 4C.
