Xiaomi is well-known for their amazing range of products that are affordable, while having a solid offering in terms of features and specs. Xiaomi recently added to their growing range of smart wearables with the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is a pretty basic smart watch, but offers amazing value for money when you consider its price. It’s packed with a surprising amount of fitness and health features, a good battery life, and has a nice aesthetic too.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite has a square design like the Apple Watch does. The display is a 1.4-inch LCD colour touch screen with 320x320 resolution. It even supports features such as automatic brightness control based on ambient lighting conditions. The display can be customized with over 120 themed watch faces and watch face functions. With the strap available in a few different colours, there are so many customized looks that can be done with this watch. If you’re into the aesthetic of the Apple Watch but you’re looking for a much more affordable option, this one will surely fit the bill for you.
If fitness tracking is the main thing you’ll be using your smart watch for, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite offers an awesome bang for your buck. The amount of fitness and health features on it is impressive! The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite has 11 different workout modes that covers a range of activities including: outdoor running, treadmill, outdoor cycling, open water swimming, freestyle, pool swimming, cricket, trekking, trail run, walking, and indoor cycling. It also has GPS+GLONASS positioning and multiple smart sensors, so it can accurately track your trajectory, speed, distance, and calories burnt as you work out.
It doesn’t just track your fitness though. You’ll also find additional health features on the Mi Watch Lite which will help keep the rest of your health in check. There’s heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, guided breathing, step counting, activity reminders, and more.
You’ll also be able to enjoy the convenience of changing music, or instantly viewing text, calls, or app notifications from your wrist, without getting your phone out. And of course, it’s got all the basic features you’d expect to see in a smart watch such as an alarm, flash light, timer, stop watch, and a find your phone app.
Perhaps the best thing about having a smart watch that’s more on the basic side is the longer battery life! With typical usage*, you can expect the watch to last up to 9 days before needing to charge again. If you’re using continuous GPS and a lot of the sports features, you can expect about 10 hours of usage before your next charge. Even so, it should only take approximately 2 hours to reach 100% charge.
* Typical usage is the watch set to default factory settings. Sleep monitoring, 30-minute interval heart rate monitoring and non-stop step counting were enabled. Bluetooth received and displayed 100 notifications every day, two alarms were set a day, the locked display was turned on 50 times a day, and the watch data was synced with a phone once a day. The watch also monitored one outdoor exercise session a week, lasting 35 minutes.
