Xiaomi has unveiled its first smartwatch of 2020 already. The Watch Color has a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display, and comes in black or silver. It is rated for 14 days' worth of battery life with normal use, and also has other potentially desirable specs such as Bluetooth 5.0, heart-rate tracking and NFC.

Today (January 3, 2020), Xiaomi launched a new device, the Watch Color. This wearable has a circular display, as indicated by its earlier teasers. Like the Mi Watch before it, it runs MIUI based on Wear OS, which contradicts some preliminary rumors. However, there is no mention of a Snapdragon Wear processor (or, indeed, an SoC of any description) here.

The Watch Color does support a range of features that many consumers may expect of an up-to-date smartwatch. These include fitness modes that cover 10 different types of exercise, adjustable faces (over 115 of these, in fact), sleep tracking, heart-rate monitoring and GPS.

The new smartwatch also supports Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. Xiaomi also claims that its 420 mAh battery can last up to 14 days per charge in normal mode, or up to 22 days when placed in its endurance mode. It is priced at 799 yuan (US$115) on the Chinese version of Mi.com; however, the OEM has yet to confirm or deny a more global release for this new wearable.
