The latest in the Mi Watch series of wearables has a round face and a blood-oxygen sensor. An official Xiaomi Weibo account has hinted that it is set for launch very soon in its domestic market. It is slated to come with various additional sports-focused features at this event.

The new Mi Watch is technically a second generation of Xiaomi's recently-adopted round-faced form-factor that has been launched in Europe recently. It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, is rated to track over 100 workout types and has an estimated battery life of up to 16 days. It also has the popular blood-oxygen tracking spec, which may make it popular whenever it actually goes on sale in its new market.

Xiaomi is now also hyping this device for launch in China. It has released a teaser showing a circular smartwatch with the same dedicated Sport and Home buttons as the Mi Watch, as well as an icon indicating support for its probable headline spec on its screen. On that note, there are strong hints that it may be called something like the Mi Watch Sport in this market.

Therefore, it seems almost certain that this Watch Color successor is the product that is to debut soon. It is said to do so tomorrow (October 20, 2020), in fact, an event that might help bring its European units closer to release. It will be interesting to see which price-point is targeted in its own home arena: this wearable is touted to sell for about €100 (~US$118) in its other known region.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
