Xiaomi is popular for its Mi Band fitness bands and has also released Amazfit smartwatches in partnership with Huami. Now, the latest Wear OS companion app teardown has revealed that Xiaomi might be working on a smartwatch powered by Google’s Wear OS platform, according to a new report.
This is the first time that the world’s fourth-largest smartphone maker is developing a smartwatch powered by Wear OS, which could be named “Xiaomi Mi Watch”. Until now, Xiaomi has not launched any smartwatch that could run on Google’s Wear OS. The references follow the evidence of a companion app that first emerged in July with Wear OS 2.26. The watch was previously code-named “Baiji”. It appears that the codename has been replaced with the Mi Watch name.
With the Mi Wear OS smartwatch, the watch that can be used independently is better than the “wristwatch” in terms of expandability, sports health data professionalism and usage scenarios. The price of the watch is also a highlight of the Xiaomi new product launch which is expected to be more than 3,000 yuan. The Xiaomi Mi Watch will be unveiled together with the Xiaomi New Product Launch Conference on November 5.
