What is the functional difference between iOS and Android phones when connected with Xiaomi Mi watch?

1. Different APP requirement

If you've already read the post on how to connect Mi Watch to your phone. You'll find that Android phones are a little different from Apple's APP at the moment.


There are two necessary APP, the one is Xiaomi Wear APP, and the other is Wear OS by Google. But at this moment, Xiaomi Wear is only available with Android version, and the iOS version won't be available until late December.


So, if you're using Apple devices, you can only download Wear OS by Google APP to connect with. As a result, functions such as Xiaomi Wear APP-based NFC, viewing and managing exercise health data are temporarily unavailable.

2. eSIM features enable method

At present, there have no Xiaomi Mi Watch global version news. So we have no confirmed information about the Mi Watch eSIM function can work at what country except China.


In addition, if you use the Xiaomi Mi Watch in China, the eSIM features enable method are different between iOS and Android. Due to carrier restrictions, eSIM online activation only supports Android users. iOS users can first use the Android mobile phone to start business, and then use the iOS mobile phone.


In addition to these two features, other functions are the same on both Android and Apple devices, you can connect your iPhone with Mi watch and can be used normally.
