Mi Watch Global Edition – If the Price is RightApril 24, 2021
Mi Watch Global Edition is one of the most anticipated smartwatches for 2020 – 2021. Released originally in India as the Mi Watch Revolve and because it has acquired so many positive reviews, a Global version was released to the market.
Here’s a quick unboxing before we proceed with the article itself.
The most common perception of consumers when they hear the word “Xiaomi” is the Mi bands, these are those wristband type smartwatches that are is just around the $50 price point. Although those are functional, a lot of consumers are looking for something bigger and functional without sacrificing on design and performance, something more.
This is where the Mi Watch Global Edition comes into play.
Now I’ve been using the Mi Watch Global Edition for I guess about a few months from when it was originally released and in contrast to its younger brother the Mi Watch Lite, I’d say the price hike is indeed worth every ounce of it.
Here’s the Mi Watch lite if you want to check it out.
Although in my opinion the Mi Watch Lite was already a good value-for-money product, because of the lack of any animations and I’ve gotten used to graphics at this point in time, it felt a bit weak in my opinion. Luckily the Mi Watch Global Edition provides just that.
For a quick rundown with its specifications these are as follows:
Display: 1.39 inches, 454 x 454 pixels, AMOLED, 450 nits (peak)
Battery: Li-Ion 420 mAh, Wireless charging
Dimensions: 53.3 x 45.9 x 11.8 mm
Weight: 32 g
Originally I’ve acquired this smartwatch back in January, around the first week, and released my full review some time by the 29th of the same month as seen here:
And to this day, which is dated April 24, 2021. I personally have not used any other smartwatches since I shifted to this product. Battery life is amazing, it’s lightweight, enough to let you know it is strapped on your wrist but not too heavy that may cause any strains and because it has changeable watch faces, you can really customize it to your heart’s content.
Although yes there are some features that are missing if you compared this to the likes of more premium smartwatches like an Apple watch, having to put into consideration the cost of what you’re paying for, I honestly wouldn’t complain.
