Xiaomi Mi Watch review: specs and price

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and featuring a 1.78-inch AMOLED display along with 8 GB of memory, the Xiaomi Mi Watch is nearly as powerful as most laptops were back in the early 2000s. 

At first glance, the Xiaomi Mi Watch looks to be a luxury smartwatch in the likes of the Apple Watch and other top-selling smartwatches. The differences are found in the impressive specs, however, with Xiaomi’s version boasting a display of 410 x 410 pixels and a pixel density of 326 pixels-per-inch.

Retailing for a fraction of the cost of Apple and Samsung smartwatches, the Xiaomi Mi Watch is a budget smartwatch for those looking for all of the capabilities of a luxury smartwatch without the price tag. Count on long battery life, too; the Mi Watch boasts a 570 mAh battery, which means you can enjoy 36 hours of continuous use per charge.
